Made in Henderson County at Legacy Paddlesports

I had a great time photographing the Made in Henderson County event this week. Hundreds of 8th and 9th grade students toured manufacturers throughout Henderson Co. to see the products they make and hear from the people who make them.

Here are a few photos at Legacy Paddlesports in Fletcher, NC; they are manufacturers of liquidlogic kayaks.

National Youth Project Using Minibikes – NYPUM Ribbon Cutting

Last night Black Mountain Home in western North Carolina held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the launch of its NYPUM shop. National Youth Project Using Minibikes is an organization promoting positive youth development utilizing off-road motorcycles. The shop at BMH is named Live to Ride in memory of Matt Bartosek. HondaTennoca Construction, and Makson are a few of the companies that made this program possible for the youth.

2013 HCPED Banquet

It’s always a pleasure working with Henderson County Partnership for Economic Development on their annual report. The banquet to reveal the report was in Hendersonville, NC at The Oriole Mill – it’s a unique and intriguing place for event photography.

Kate of Farmhouse Graphics does a marvelous job every year with the design. Sierra Nevada, Burntshirt and Hubba Hubba Smokehouse were all on hand to provide food and beverages to the guests.

Supermoon in Asheville

The moon is usually way more impressive in person than in photographs (especially iPhone ones). But tonight was the supermoon so I went out with my wife to find it. You can’t really tell that this photo is of the actual supermoon, but it is I tell ya.

And here is a bunny that was kind enough to stay still for me using 3200 ISO, 1/20 sec. shutter at 200mm. Because this was the same night as the supermoon, this is automatically a superbunny. “Goodnight Moon…”
