Ashland Independent Film Festival April 4 - 8

April 11, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Beginning last thursday I spent the next 5 days photographing various venues at the 12th annual Ashland Independent Film Festival.  

For me, it all started with the opening night party where we had been given a room to photograph anyone at the party who was brave enough to step before my camera.  Gwenne Wilcox did a great job enticing people to get their photos taken.  But since I had been told there would be no more than 300 guests making happy that night in the main ball room of the Ashland Spring Hotel, I felt secure thinking I would only need to photograph maybe 50 people.  After all, most people are suppose to be camera shy

Well, from start (7pm) to finish (10pm) I photographed well over 150 people and stayed up till 7am the next morning getting less than half of the photos edited and placed online so people could view and download  them (It took me the next 4 days to finish editing all the photos, since i was busy with daily photo-shoots).   

This has been such a unique experience for me -- and what a joy; indeed, it seemed as if the entire town of Ashland came out to see the films and to support the festival.  What a pleasure to be a part of it all.
