I am writing this right now from my hotel in Clermont, Florida. Let me tell you, it has been a long couple days. I woke up yesterday, Friday, around 2 PM and have been up ever since. I also drove the entire 20-or-so hour drive from State College, PA to where I am right now, Clermont, Florida. So, if some of this doesn’t make sense… sorry! I shall try my best…. I stayed up because I wanted to experience to drive to Florida myself. Honestly, I don’t regret any of it.
Overall it was a good trip except a few things. Around 1 or 2 AM we ran into road construction in Virginia, and once we were almost at our hotel in Florida, we ran into problems with the GPS, and was unable to find our hotel at first. After doing some research online via stealing a McDonald’s WiFi connection, and calling the hotel, we were able to find it. We ended up eating at the hotel’s restauraunt/pub, the Even Par Pub. Pretty enjoyable atmosphere and good people!
Regardless, it has been a long day, and here I sit at 8 PM, ready to relax, get a full night of sleep, and hustle tomorrow. I will be getting up around 6 AM and attending the Renninger’s Antique Extravaganza in Mount Dora, Florida at 8 AM. Afterwards it is off to Miami! I am so excited. Our hotel in general is awesome!
I promise some more in-depth posts this week, but it has been a loooooooooong 30+ hour day… so I will leave you with a few of my favorite shots from the past 30+ hours of the beginning of the 2011 OUP Photography Tour!
OUP Photography has been updated with many shots from the 2010 OUP Photography Tour! You can also view the unedited 2010 OUP Photography Tour end-of-tour “secret project” (YouTube seems to have a problem with adding music to your videos. Come on, copyright on the Internet??).
Check it out now at the following address!
And don’t forget, the 2011 OUP Photography Tour is being announced tomorrow, Saturday, August 14th!!!!!!
Hello everyone and welcome to this brand new OUP Photography Tour blog! The 2010 OUP Photography Tour is going strong right now, and you can find updates at the following address:
We’ve already been to Hershey, Pennsylvania, Doswell, Virginia, Outer Banks, North Carolina, and a few random places in between. July is going to be bringing a few more stops, so check out the page for details! The main goal of the OUP Photography Tour is to have fun. To explore various places, persue my passion of photography, and have a blast while doing so. One day I would love to do nothing more than this Tour. It took taking a chance and spending money out-of-pocket to start doing this Tour to realize that it’s a true passion of mine not only shooting photography, but traveling as well. Together they are the perfect fit.
If you decide that you like what I do you can get more information on my photography at the following address:

Or you can feel free to contact me and ask me anything. Any possible business ideas you may have, any suggestions, ANYTHING.
I will respond to everything… I promise.
Right now I am working on the details of the 2011 OUP Photography Tour. I should have some more information on that shortly. I plan on doing this constantly until it becomes successful or leads to an awesome job/opportunity, etc… so I decided that making this page, and eventually adding its own domain name, was the best option.
You’ll hear more from me soon!
