I had the privilege of being at Boone Hall Plantation after hours this weekend. It was neat to basically have the place to myself…so peaceful and beauituful without all the tourists running around. 🙂

“Best run ever! Perfectly organized, no jam ups at obstacles, plenty of mud and muck! Not one bad thing I could say. Loved it!”
Do you like to run? Climb towers of shipping containers? Rocket down a massive water slide? Crawl through underground tunnels? Leap over fire? Than the 5th Annual Charleston Rugged Maniac Challenge would have been perfect for you!!!
This weekend I got to photograph this awesome sporting event again. I had the privilege of covering The Gauntlet this time, which was AMAZING! It was so hectic, bobbing and weaving to keep from getting run over, encouraging everyone as they struggled through the obstacle, and cranking through over 8,000 images at 11-fps in 5 hours. There was never a dull moment. I LOVE MY JOB!!!
I met Holly while shooting assignments for her at the Charleston Regional Business Journal. We’ve been friends ever since and I’ve had the pleasure of photographing her and Clint’s family for several years. Originally it was just their 4-legged kids, now they have a beautiful 2-legged one too. J We met at the historic Boone Hall Plantation just down the road from their house. The early morning light was just perfect and we had a great time roaming the grounds and stopping for different shots. At one point, when I had everyone set, including 2-dogs and a 1-year old girl, this huge (think grayhound) bus slowly wanders down the famous Avenue of Oaks that was my backdrop…and proceeded to stop right behind us to let it’s FULL contents of elderly tourists out behind us!!! How inconsiderate was that? They could have just as easily pulled up 15 feet closer to the mansion and been out of our shot! But that’s the fun of working in a public environment. We rolled with the punches, moved on to a new spot, and came back to that one after everyone had dispersed.
