Crazy Bachelor Party!!!

Bet you clicked, hoping to see different photos....

Brandon Melott is getting married. Brandon is an avid cyclist, has been since he was a kid. That means he can do quite a bit with the bike. He can crush on the road. He's got a massive motor and a wicked front wheel on the trail. And he can dirt jump with the best of them.

He had a little bachelor party on Saturday night, in his back yard. No strippers. Just a dirt jump track. And good fun. I had never had the opportunity to take snaps like this before, so I was psyched to have some good riders to shoot.

Snapping for a living

It's Wednesday June 10th, 2009. I'm sitting outside my apartment in my car bumming off my own wireless internet. Temporarily locked out of my place (but that's another story for another time). It's been 3 days.

3 days since I became a full time photographer.

If you didn't already know, I held a day job as a recruiter and snapped pictures in my spare time for spare cash. The job was lucrative, afforded me plenty of money to buy toys and go on great trips quite often. The work life balance was nice too, rarely working more than 40 hours a week with tons of vacation time and a very flexible schedule. Ask my friends....

But things weren't right. I was ready for a change. I'm not going to get into the specifics, and as a matter of fact I'm going to go ahead and end this post very quickly cause I don't feel like spilling my guts all over the web.

Suffice it to say that I've jumped headlong into the view finder of my Nikon D300 and the frame is looking pretty sweet.......

My mom decided to step into the ring this last Memorial Day with her first 8K race. She's been running for a while, but has never done a race of this distance. I'm so pumped that she did it, finished strong and could have kept going. Half Marathon next. Then the full monty. Then she's gonna dig an ultra with me!!

Congratulations Momma....
