I’ve got a little downtime until my next week – don’t worry, will be getting new ones up very soon! With my downtime, I’m catching up on my blogging from shoots I did in 2010. One of the coolest, in my opinion, was some commercial photography work I was commissioned for by the Durham Museum of Life & Science. They needed some updated photography for their vast, and I mean VAST amount of attractions at their facility. I am very used to arriving at a location and working around obstacles, but I had so many firsts during this shoot that, honestly, there are too many to mention. I can say, however, I was 6 feet away from a very large owl (while in his cage), got up close and personal to a bear (luckily, for me, I was across the water from him) and enjoyed the company of pigs, rabbits and a not so friendly goose.
After all was said and done, I had so many pictures that even this blog post just doesn’t show how large and diverse the Durham Museum of Life & Science really is. I highly recommend you taking your kids, wife or girlfriend out to spend a day here. Between the train, bugs, bears, wolves, lemurs, dinosaurs and really cool science stuff (water vapor, remote controlled sailboats and air cannons), you will not be disappointed. I hope you enjoy the photos and if you do head out there, please mention where you saw the photos!
