Durham Conference Photography: SEABOTA 2019
You know one of the perks of my job? Getting to hit the road! I got to travel up to Durham, North Carolina, which I love, twice this month for photography and it was wonderful.
Last year I got the honor of being the event photographer for three days for the American Board of Trial Advocates Southeastern Region at their Charleston meeting and I was thrilled to be asked back for this year’s meeting in Durham at the Washington Duke Inn.
This year’s conference consisted of three days of lecture sessions (and they were fascinating, by the way), social events, and leisure activities - I even got to go kayaking! While kayaking isn’t a usual part of being a conference photographer, I was all about it. I left the cameras on land though, of course!
I had a wonderful time being a fly on the wall (with cameras in hand) during the seminars, which covered the Doris Duke estate case, the Duke Lacrosse case, and importance of security in this modern age, but the social hours were just as enjoyable. Everyone was so incredibly kind and hospitable.
