October 2018

October 2018

October sort of flew by on me.

Much of the month was spent traveling for Tennessee Volunteers football coverage and video project production. Stick some high school sports and a few general assignments in between and voila, it’s November.

When I began in Knoxville last year my understanding of shooting football was still pretty vague. But after months of three football games a week I’ve learned pretty quickly. Not to say it’s gotten boring, but it’s become routine in a way. I try to fall out of that routine during the week with some photo walks, reading and writing.

If you’re a fan of horror movies, my co-worker Ryan Wilusz and I took a midnight tour of an abandoned jail, you can watch the video below.
