I’m dreaming of hot sunny weather so I can shoot more senior portrait sessions like this one from earlier this year of Megan from Sherando High School!
IMPORTANT!!! LISTEN UP!!! Since this session early this year, I have learned that shooting on railroad tracks is illegal. As in “not allowed”, “prohibited”, “unauthorized”… like totally OUTLAWED, lol! Even though there were CSX guys that showed up during this shoot and didn’t say anything to us (you can see their truck in the background of the shot below), I have since been SEVERELY warned (as in yelled at and threatened to have my gear confiscated and a hefty fine given to not only me but my clients who were there) by another CSX officer at a different senior portrait session. Apparently, from what the CSX officer told me, a newbie photographer put a newborn baby on the tracks in Harper’s Ferry right before a train was coming and so they are kicking up their enforcement of the trespassing law. I have since heard horror stories of photographers who have had to pay thousands of dollars in fines for one ticket, had gear taken away, had images deleted on cards, etc.). SOOOOOO… guess what? I’m not stepping foot on railroad property ever again! I swear almost every senior session since this one has requested a shot on the tracks, lol! Sorry ladies, I don’t think you want your driver’s licenses taken away until you turn 18, and my insurance agent would probably not help me out in replacing my gear if it was confiscated due to a criminal action on my part, so don’t even ask! Alrighty, end of PSA, now back to the senior portraits 🙂
