Somedays, ya just sit back and smile
Today has been epic in every sense. Early ups on Aspen Mountain this morning to shoot some skiers enjoying the 12”+ of fresh powder that came over night. Killed it behind the camera. Came home and finally got my contact and shoot info from what I thought was just some UK ski group that was coming. Turns out, I’m actually shooting for an international magazine. This is a magazine that a lot of you read. A lot of pictures are from this magazine. Its a magazine that EVERYONE knows. The shoot will be a full, multi-page editorial. I can’t tell you what magazine, but this is the biggest shoot of my life.
In this industry, this is what it takes to go to that next level. You get that one shot that you couldn’t possibly dream of. It falls into your lap, and you lose your damn mind. Both with excitement and fear. This shoot is taking place in one week. In one week, I’ll be shooting for my career, so to speak.
These are the days that I just sit back and smile and try to ignore the swarm of angry butterflies in my stomach.
