I found these old buildings next to Glendale Shoals in Spartanburg, SC after a recent photo shoot.

College Fest concert photos

Several colleges in Spartanburg, SC teamed up to put on College Fest, a free concert event downtown last Thursday.  The event featured Atlanta band B.o.B., local band After August and headliner Matt Wertz.  Here’s a couple of my favorite shots from the show.

Matt was taking a shot of the crowd with his iPhone to post on Twitter.  You can check out Matt’s photo here: http://img9.yfrog.com/i/4jt.jpg/

Camera Van comes to Spartanburg

Filed under: Photography — Tags: , , , , , — JW @ 3:25 pm

This just pulled up in front of my office at the Herald-Journal.  The Camera Van, created by Harrod Blank, has over 2,000 cameras, four working monitors and even has six functioning Canon EOS cameras wired via remote cables to a shutter button panel on the dashboard.

To the average passerby, this van is weird, but to a photographer and collector of antique cameras, this van is awesome.   Unfortunately, I had to get back to work or else I could have spent all afternoon talking to Harrod and exploring the features of the van.  However, I was able to hand him $20 for his book of Art Cars and snap a couple pics with my Blackberry.  Check out his website www.cameravan.com.  He will be showing his documentary film about Art Cars at the Chapman Cultural Center on Wednesday.
