Work of October

Work of October

Fall has arrived!

The colors of autumn paint Knoxville in a majestic canvas of beauty and awe. I’ve never quite experienced anything like it before.

Besides some breaking news, football and feature hunting, not much happened this month. I planned for six months to photograph an 18th-century trade faire which happens only once a year, so when I finally made it I was very happy 🙂

With two months of my internship remaining, it feels as though the fun only just began. I’ve grown very attached to my friends, co-workers and this city. For now I don’t know what is next. We’ll see where the wind takes me.

Click here to view a 360 video I did of the fall foliage in the Smoky Mountains.

Below is a short feature video I did on a football player followed by my favorite photos of the month.
