Imagine thousands of people packed together on a hot day in May on Fort Lauderdale beach with their heads fixed on the sky as various types of planes and jets majestically danced among the clouds and that was how I would describe my experience at the 2016 Fort Lauderdale Air Show. I’m one for new experiences and seeing how I’ve never witnessed an air show in my life I thought the air show returning to Fort Lauderdale for the first time in a couple of years was a good time to check it out. Of course I had to bring my camera with me to try to capture the action with the emphasis on try. Some of those jets were fast.
I was recently hired by Carnival Cruise Line to photograph them at a travel agent focused convention called CLIA cruise3sixty at the Broward Convention Center. I was there to photograph the displays and staff as well as photograph the travel agents interactions with all the Carnival Cruise Line displays, especially the displays for their new ship, the Vista.
