Hey everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve done an update on what’s been happening with my life so I figured it was time. So, here goes:
I was featured in Craftbeer.com ‘s list for “10 Beertographers You Should Be Following On Instagram” and things got a little nuts after that. I was gaining followers at a crazy pace and next thing I knew, I had ballooned from about 1,250 followers to 1,900 followers in the span of a few weeks. The crazy amount of followers has died down a lot but it was crazy to see the response. I was very surprised and grateful to be listed with some IG’ers who I have followed for a while and really admire.
I shot pictures for two different websites, and gave authorization to allow my pictures for a third website, info to be released when they go live.
One of my pictures made it to the most recent issue of Orange Coast Magazine, in the feature about Orange County breweries, written by my good friend Greg Nagel. It was really cool to see my photo in print alongside other great photographers like John Holzer. Glad to see John get the accolades he deserves. You should grab a copy of the magazine if you see it. My pic was of The Good Beer Company. It’s very well written and I am bursting with pride in my buddy Greg for getting a cover story.
I sat down with Rob Widmer and Greg from OC Beer Blog for an interview and shoot some pics afterward. Link to the article Greg wrote here. It was really cool to talk to Rob and listen to what craft beer was like 30 years ago. I love hearing stories from people who has made their living on beer, the good and the bad. I won’t ever turn down a chance to meet someone new and hear their story.
Some other really fun and exciting secret projects are happening so, hopefully I won’t fall completely off the map. I am making a promise to myself to blog a bit more because it helps me remember why I started doing this crazy stuff way back when. What’s been going on in all your lives?
