Happy Cinco De Mayo! Today marks a special, albeit small landmark for my photojournalism career – two subjects were covered in the Hola! section of the Corpus Christi Caller Times. Not just ANY two people but the Queen and Princess of the Court of the 60th annual Buccaneer Days Coronation. It was also an honor because I was personally selected from the group of freelance photographers because of I was the “best freelance photographer for on-location lighting.” Back pat Micah, and thank you very much for the fine compliment Todd Yates – Chief Photographer with the Caller Times. Lighting is a craft that I’ve made a top priority to learn and hone – it is the basis of all photography after all! All photos Copyright Caller.com.
