Over the weekend I photographed the Amadeus Asheville festival put on by Daniel Meyer and the Asheville Symphony. Amadeus is one of my favorite movies so it was neat photographing the symphony performing Mozart (and even Salieri too). There were spectacular performances during the festival such as Grammy award winner Emanuel Ax, Orion Weiss, and Franklin Keel, Jason Posnock & Kara Poorbaugh of the Asheville Symphony. Enjoy these photos from the Diana Wortham Theatre and Thomas Wolfe Auditorium.
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.
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. Honda, Tennoca Construction, and Makson are a few of the companies that made this program possible for the youth.
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.
I was glad to be back this year for Artspace Charter School’s After Hours Cabaret. The benefit was held at Diana Wortham Theatre in Asheville, NC and many great acts performed, such as Sirius. B, Hobey Ford, Honeybee Democracy, and Underhill Rose. There was a silent auction with lots of cool items to bid on and even a raffle for an iPad.
For the photography geeks: I shot this with a Nikon D4 using various Nikon lenses – 24mm 1.4, 35mm 1.4, 45mm 2.8 PC-E, 70-200mm vrII – and the Sigma 50mm 1.4 & 85mm 1.4.
I posted images from the 2010 NC Mountain State Fair and figured I’d post a few from 2011. These were taken in September 2011 on the last night of the fair at the WNC Agricultural Center.
