November storm 2010

When the phone rings at 9pm in the middle of a snowstorm, you start thinking fast: is someone hurt? do I need to bundle up and go fight the snow? Is it Puget Sound Energy calling to ask me to go into the storm to take photos?

Thankfully, it wasn’t anyone in distress. Off I went into the snow to earn my daily bread. When brides, families and models are their most camera-shy, these guys were at their best.

    Cool. How’d you get that job? Were they looking for marketing photos or for the news?

      They contacted me a little over a year ago about being on call for storms in the area. They have a network of photographers they work with. I have no idea how they found me, but it paid very well.

      Oh, and to answer the other question: it is a PR sort of angle, showing that they are responding quickly to the situations at hand. The guys are hard at work and they wanted to make sure that the public can see that. The photos went onto the PSE photostream on Flickr, as well as other corporate locations.
