I’ve lived in Atlanta Ga for several years now, but once upon a time I lived on the island. I grew up on the Alabama Gulf Coast and love the area! Gulf Shores and Orange Beach really are special. Seeing it all from a different perspective by hopping a plan ride along the coast has to be on your to-do list. Either a small charter flight or for a really special adventure, flying in the open-air cockpit of an old biplane. The star complex is the Civil War fort on the east side of the mouth of Mobile bay called Fort Morgan.
Interesting. Very interesting! 1 Year 3 Months after the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill that deeply effected every single person along the gulfs coast, I get another call from BP telling me I needed to submit MORE paperwork to them. I have yet to be paid a single cent but I keep my fingers crossed and keep sending them more and more information. So, here’s to HOPE 🙂
Woohoo. It always gives a certain warm fuzzy when you see your work published. This time my photograph made front cover for the Alabama Official Vacation Guide.
Here is the link to the whole guide. I have several more shots in the Gulf Coast section. Alabama Official Vacation Guide.
Once we had the chairs in place, we had to make the sand smooth and relaxing. We had quite a few odd looks from people but it was worth it. We had to sweep the sand in the area to smooth out the foot prints and then use a leaf blower to blow the sand so it looked natural. Here is a little behind the scenes from the day of the shoot. The picture looks like a secluded beach, but here’s a look from the other direction. This is a picture of Dusty helping sweep. He was a huge help getting this shot. And on a side note he just got back from having his film shown at Sundance!
The waters were clean and clear and beautifully relaxing. Most people wonder how much photoshoping was involved, but this short video show this is really what our beach looks like. I had to walk in the water and grab a few short clips of these guys swimming around.
