Pleased to see that the two images I entered into the Graphis Photo Annual were awarded a Gold and Silver..
Many people help you on an assignment, nothing is done in a vacuum. Many thanks to Sarah Leen, Director of Photography for National Geographic for the assignment. Sadie Quarrier of NatGeo suggested me for the shoot. (Sadie and I had worked together on Smithsonian stories) and to ace photo editor Kurt Mutchler for direction and help with this shoot. There was a fair amount of pre-planning, getting me to Florida before the Hurricane struck and working with a group of helo pilots at HMC Helicopter at Tamiami airport.
Funny, I just posted a picture of Wilson Bridge and then this one from last fall won a Gold in Graphis. I am enjoying shooting infrastructure from the ground as much as I shoot it from the air.
This was a personal shot, testing out a news lens combo on the Nikon D850.
