I travel for work. A lot. I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before, but I’m a videographer for the IBEW. We shoot stories, videos for conferences, commercials for national TV, and anything else that we might need. My first travel story was to Nashville for an organizing blitz. After spending a full day riding around in a car on said blitz with a local organizer and one from Atlanta, my coworker (he’s our amazing producer) and I went to dinner downtown.

I love how there’s music everywhere, even on the street corner.

This old train bridge is now a pedestrian walkway over the river. The light was amazing.

And of course, no trip to Nashville would be complete without a bit of country in a touristy, kitchy bar. These guys were SO GOOD. But then again, I feel like everyone in Nashville is SO GOOD.

Overall, the trip was a great success. I learned a LOT about shooting video on my DSLR, and remembered that I make myself seasick when I try to shoot without support. Here’s the video I produced.
