Charlotte Post Panel Discussion!

Just a reminder that I'll be at the Duke Library at Johnson C. Smith at 6pm on Thursday, June 20th, talking about my years photographing for The Charlotte Post. This is a rare chance to talk about a gig that I've enjoyed for the past fifteen years, and I hope to see you there.

Blumey Awards

 This past week, six days of The Blumey Awards rehearsals, multiple galas, two video shoots, and other events. Congrats to those of you that made a bet with their spouses that I would show up at the World Affairs Council gala. (Yes, there was more than one bet placed, from what I've heard.)It's Blumey Awards day! Come say hello, or look for the photographer lurking in the corners. See you soon, and see you on the road.

Recent Events And Photos

My thanks to all of you that commented on last week's post about others that recently went on The Great Gig In The Sky. I knew that I was leaving out a few others that should be mentioned, and you took care of that.

And for those that asked for a recap of this week's events, here you go.
This week, photos of everything from golf tourneys and galas, to luncheons, house concerts and more. Friday, photos with Cast Iron Filter at the Evening Muse, Justincase at the Visulite, and Wilde Green at Petra's. Saturday, photos of three galas, and JazzArts concert. Today, photos of Blumey rehearsals, and trying to edit all of these photos from the past week.
And oh yeah, there's a feature on me in the new issue of Southpark Magazine. But don't let that keep you from reading the magazine.
Happy 100th anniversary to the Marx Brothers' debut on Broadway, and to the ongoing shenanigans of MarxFest, happening this weekend and next in NYC. You should be there, and I wish I was, too.
Love to all, and lots more to come. See you soon, and see you on the road.
