COVID and the Cancellation of Conventions

January 19, 2021  •  1 Comment

COVID has changed our world for how we promote our product and our business, possibly forever.  As a freelance photographer, these gatherings are how we sell ourselves.  We are like a walking billboard. The SHOT (Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade) Show is an American annual trade show for the shootinghunting, and firearms industry.  It is the biggest event of this type in the world.  

Shane Durrance Productions was booked by GLOCK to shoot at a tactical training facility known as T1G.  T1G is dedicated to providing the highest level of training across the operational spectrum. They combine the synergy of real world experience, institutional knowledge, and purpose-built facilities to exceed the demands of our clients. T1G continuously anticipates the next evolution of conflict and adapts our core competencies to meet this ever changing operational landscape.

Below are a few of the images from SHOT that we captured at T1G.  I can't tell you how humbling it was to walk into a convention and see your images 40 feet tall.  For me, it was breathtaking!

At T1G, we utilized a few retired Navy Seals as talent.  I will never forget when they approached me and said, "Hey Durrance, we have a great idea, we are going to place you in this tiny room and throw in some flashbangs, then we will rush in will weapons drawn, this will make for some great footage."  I thought to myself, I do not want to be a woosie; so of course I said yes.  This was one of the most exhilarating moments of my entire career.   Glock T1G ShootI never thought I would have flashbangs thrown at me; but on this day a few of our retired Navy Seals did just that for the shot.

That was me in the corner when my life flashed before my eyes, literally.  Either you live to work, or you work to live, no matter which you choose, always appreciate the ones that have influenced your life and career.

After the word covid, I am reminded of an unpleasant situation. My girlfriend and I had plans to go on vacation this winter. But they were ruined by the fact that I lost my job because of covid19. But I still really wanted to make them come true, so I started looking for a new job. And to find it faster, I wrote my resume quickly and easily using topresume reviews sevice --> https://www.topresumewritingservices.com/topresume-com-review/
