I’ve certainly been busy with projects lately. As a commercial photographer, I gain access to quite a few very cool places and meet (and photograph) great people with extremely innovative ideas. A client of mine is working with University Dining at NCSU and needed a photographer to cover a swanky lunch setup on the campus of NC State. The event was setup in Vaughn Towers which is the pressbox for Cater-Finley stadium (Go Pack!). I’ve never been inside before and was blown away by how nice whole area was from the furnishings to the architecture.
Everything was, of course, color coordinated for NCSU and he 1st floor had floor to ceiling windows with doors going to outside box seats. Then I went up to the third floor where dessert was being served in the Chancellors box. WOW! I kept thinking to myself I need to find a way to hang out with these guys! Such a great facility and wonderful people to work with. To steal a phrase from a favorite movie of mine, “If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.”. Working as a commercial photographer in my hometown of Raleigh certainly has its perks and I really enjoyed getting access into Vaughn Towers and working with University Dining. Here’s a shot of Chuck Norman modeling the “thumbs-up” plate. An ingenious idea that holds food and drink while the plate is secured with your thumb.
