February 15th, 2018 at around 6pm, I am located in the beautiful building of the AT&T Conference Center near downtown Austin, Tx. I am preparing for the Bosch North America Kick Off Sales Award Ceremony and event. This will be a night to remember.
I was contacted by Nick of Bob's Steak & Chophouse to provide professional special event photography for his client John. This was going to be John's 40th year anniversary with his fellow brothers from his fraternity. Some of these guys haven't seen one another in a very long time, this was the makings for a special night!
The story begins in September of 2015 in Grapevine, TX. Ted was tasked to work an event and after going through every single person qualified to work with him, he eventually turned to one of his best friends at work and asked for suggestions. Ted's friend Billy suggested that Lynn would be able to help. So Ted picked up the phone, introduced himself and asked Lynn if she would be willing to assist him with his work event. Lynn said "of course!"
In the month of October, I had the pleasure of being one of three photographers being hired to photograph the BLU Party + My Yacht Club event. Let me put this in perspective for you, there were over 20 something photographers that were given access to photograph this event for free, FOR FREE!! Who works for free these days?
