Just got back from Vegas and had an excellent time catching up with old friends (and making new ones!). The weather was great, we won a little money, In-N-Out was amazing (animal style!), we lost a little (a lot of) money, the AEE was in town, we drank a bit (of a lot of things), wore fake mustaches, we lost some more money, and had a grand time.
On the plane back I was sitting next to two chaps from Beaumont who run a little site called 88 Miles West (http://www.88mileswest.com) that specializes in concert and event photography. I talked shop for awhile with Chad and David and I realized you can do great things with a D90 and some moxy (I’m halfway there!). David even let me look over his shoulder as they went through some shots from the (ahem) convention. Two very nice guys and I wish them luck in the future. Hopefully our paths will cross again sometime soon.
In the meantime, you should be their friend on Facebook (all the cool kids are doing it).
