This is probably one of my favorite photographs I’ve taken of all time… from the Boardwalk in Ocean City, Maryland! I hope you enjoy this newly edited version!
I hope you are all doing GREAT! It’s funny that this is actually the first post I’ve put up here on this blog in 2013, while I’ve actually posted EVERY SINGLE DAY of 2013 over on BrentOtt.com. That’s about to change however, and in a big way. I’ve been going through the LOADS of pictures I’ve took on my trips over the years, some which I’ve never released. I’ve also been editing some of them in various ways, and I’m going to start sharing right here, hopefully quite often! ENJOY!
We’re starting with this shot, which was taken back in Outer Banks, North Carolina in June of 2010. Absolutely LOVED it there, and can’t wait to get back!
I also can’t wait until the 2013 OUP Photography Tour kicks off this JULY!
Had a blast in Ocean City, MD, Dover, DE, and Rehoboth Beach, DE this past weekend. Even rolled through Dewey Beach, DE briefly. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again… I absolutely LOVE being on the road.
I’ll have some more updates, and a pretty big announcement or two in the coming days…. Hope you are all doing well and enjoying the Spring!
Finally got to see the completed SkyRush in the park this past weekend! In case you’re not familiar with HersheyPark, SkyRush is their 12th RollerCoaster which will be opening THIS May…. exciting!
I’ll be heading to Ocean City, MD, Dover, DE, and Rehoboth Beach, DE again this coming weekend…. be on the lookout for some OUP Photography Tour updates… and join OUnitProductions.com on Facebook!
As always, it was a very sad moment walking on the beach for the last time on this trip. I love the beach. Never met a beach I don’t like… cannot wait until my next beach trip, hopefully sooner than later.
After a while of enjoying the beach & town we left Rehoboth Beach. Trust me, it won’t be too long until we go back… even in the Winter, loved that town. We ended up going to Dover, Delaware and the Dover Downs Hotel & Casino. GREAT place! My girlfriend and I often go to Hollywood Casino in more local Grantville, PA, so for us this was a little upgrade of sorts (although we LOVE Hollywood Casino!), and a new experience. Also can’t wait to go back there! (and I believe we have some complimentary stays on the way in the mail!)
After a good time in the casino, probably about a 4 or 5 hour visit, it was time for the drive home. Only about a four hour drive or so to our home, so it is really not too bad. Nothing I typically don’t come close to doing every week on the road anyway. Pretty beautiful sunset on the way home… So folks, that is pretty much it. I still have a good amount of video I took while on this trip, which you will eventually see right here in this blog, but I am in the meanwhile working on a secret project of sorts. I can’t talk too much about it now, but I will in the future.
I will be doing a lot more filming/traveling/photography, etc… so stay tuned to this blog, as well as OUnitProductions.com… thanks so much!
Where would you like to see the OUP Photography Tour go? What did you like about this past trip? What didn’t you enjoy so much? Which shot was your favorite? Or simply, how can I help YOU?

Sunday morning started off feeling VERY sick. Simple as that. You will, I’m sure, later see some video with proof of such a fact. Regardless, a few hours later, and some coffee thanks to the hotel’s always-welcome-when-traveling in-room coffee maker, it was on! It shows with some of my first views of Rehoboth Beach for the day…
The hotel had a “viewing roof” of sorts, but when we walked upstairs the door was locked. I’m not quite sure why, and I didn’t ask. Something else small that sort of confused me about the hotel. Regardless, it had a beautiful view!
After checking out we loaded up our car, and began walking around the area again. Looked at the beach, stopped at a few stores, and eventually realized that we were both starving, still sort of hungover, and needed to find a place to eat. This came with Sammy’s Kitchen. I didn’t really take any photos there, and I wish I would have, but pretty decent food. It was pretty busy, with a wait when we arrived, which didn’t bother me too much.
The service was sort of slow, but I can understand why since they only had basically one waitress running the entire restaurant. I am assuming someone called off? I overheard somebody saying that they didn’t realize it was going to be that busy, but only having one waitress doesn’t seem smart, right? Anyway, pretty good food, I had a typical breakfast dinner (eggs, toast, hash browns, etc…) and it was as-said typical, and just sort of average. Good, but average.
After eating we did some more shopping, walked around, and got ready to head to the beach one last time!
I’ll be back before the weekend with Part IV, the FINAL photo update of this fun little journey…. more beach shots to come!
After leaving Dogfish Head, we took our time walking back towards our hotel, taking in the sights and sounds of Rehoboth Beach. We made sure to take the time to snap a few pictures along the way!
After relaxing in the hotel a while, and taking a few more pictures, we decided that we were in a beach town, so why not do what we usually do in such a case… have more drinks! Earlier in the day we noticed this little pizza place/bar called Nicola Pizza. We decided to walk there and have a few drinks, and I’m glad that we did!
Honestly, I had a blast there, but really don’t remember too much afterwards besides passing out early in my bed listening to the ocean. I remember having two Dogfish Head beers, a jello shot, and a mixed drink called the “Mild Concussion.” If you’re ever at Nicola Pizza, only order this drink if you’re feeling really daring. Either the bartender really hooked us up, or it is a drink basically FILLED with rum and other odds and ends… yeah, don’t remember too much after that. Oh yeah, and they also have all-day-$3 Sex on the Beaches which my girlfriend Brandi too advantage of… can’t go wrong with that!
As I already said, upon leaving Nicola Pizza the night was pretty much a wrap. We stumbled back to our hotel (LOL), my girlfriend talked on the phone/watched TV a while, and I passed out….. The next morning was sort of rough, and we’ll get to that in the next update coming later this week!
This coming weekend, January 28th & 29th, 2012, I will be on the road again, finally, shooting some photography & video for a top-secret project! I am usually on the road for my business at least once per week, but this will be the first time in a while that in addition to auctions, etc.., I will be concentrating solely on shooting photography and video.
It will all start early Saturday morning when I’ll be hitting the road around 6 AM towards Smithsburg, MD to attend an auction at 10 AM, followed by an hour and a half drive to Glen Rock, PA at 4 PM for yet another auction. Loading up on rusty treasure this weekend… hopefully!
After leaving Glen Rock we’ll be heading to Rehoboth Beach, DE and checking into the Atlantic Sands Hotel & Conference Center, hopefully by 10 or 11 PM, but it may be a bit later, depending on how the auction in Glen Rock, PA (which is an auction house I am familiar with, and love) goes. I’ve booked an oceanfront room, to enjoy what is hopefully a beautiful sunrise on Sunday morning! Myself and my girlfriend will be spending Sunday taking in the sights and sounds of Rehoboth Beach, shooting photography and video, and will leave town towards home on Sunday evening once the sun goes down, etc…
Very excited for this weekend! I’ll have some more info on the “secret video project” once I am able to release it, but just know that some exciting things are in the works! Also, I will, OF COURSE, be posting some photos and videos RIGHT HERE in this blog next week and possibly while on the road…
STAY TUNED! 2012 HERE WE GO!!!!!!!!!
