2012 has been an amazing year so far. Between getting my first commercial timelapse gig, expanding into church photography, and shooting a few more weddings it's been great. Specifically I've loved the opportunities clients have given me to create truly unique images, rather than just wanting the run of the mill stuff.
Creation Festival is no different. They contacted me a few months back and after lots of paper work, emails, and conference calls we finally worked it out where I would be shooting 3 festivals. I'm currently flying to the 2nd of the 3 festivals (Sonshine Festival), but the first one is Creation East.
My goal at each festival isn't just to photograph the artists when they perform, but to showcase the special moments to be had at each festival, from every angle. If you have any questions about a photo you see just comment below and I'll answer. With that said, enjoy 6 Behind The Scenes at Creation Festival posts.

Day 1 If you attend Creation East the way most visitors do, let me tell you the experience is not same for me as it was for you. Most folks arrive on Tuesday or Wednesday (when the artists start to play). I arrived on Monday to be there for the moments during setup that often go unseen.
It was a great day, I met the folks I would be working with for all 3 festivals as well as the volunteers specific to Creation East. Using my 16-35mm 2.8, close up portraits I took looked very distorted and very fun, so there's a few of those. I also was assigned to go explore the Agape Farm Retreat Center to look for interesting things. It's a beautiful location as you can see, and people even begin to line up on that Monday!
