Let's face it, summers in Las Vegas are HOT. Like, if the sun is out you stay inside hot. We had record breaking heat already this year...and it's only going to get hotter. Due to the heat, there isn't much happening photo-wise, unless it's early in the morning or after the sun goes down.
It's a good time to hit the road.
I seem to be making the trek to Salt Lake City, Utah each May for the last couple years, and this year it's happening again. I head there Friday, May 25th, I shoot on Saturday the 26th, and drive right back home. Out and back.
Just four DAYS later, I hop on a plane for South Dakota. I'll be covering the Wheel Jam (Semi Truck) Event again this year for LargeCar Magazine. I hop off the plane, drive one hour to a local farm where I'm doing a truck feature shoot, then drive another couple hours to the event site. It's a three day event, with a TON going on. I had a lot of fun last year, and am happy to be returning.
I fly home that Sunday (Jun 3rd), and start packing to do some VW Camping at Blackstar in Southern California. Thursday the 7th I'll be driving my 1977 VW camper to Prado Regional Park in Chino to spend four days photographing the largest gathering of VWs in the country. There are a lot of things happening during these four days (Blackstar Campout, OCTO, Things West, Prado and more), so it will be non-stop go go go! Back home late that Sunday night.
While I'll be back home in Las Vegas, the same week I go right into Las Vegas Car Stars; an annual gathering of movie & TV vehicles at the Fremont Street Experience (and some other locations too). Another three days of events!
I expect things to slow down a bit after that, because like I mentioned, it's just too darn hot! Still, you never know who is going to call, or where I'll be headed next!
Are you ready? I'm ready.
