Outdoor Retailer is going on in Salt Lake City. My friend, Sarah, founder of OutdoorFest, got me in with an staff pass so I could shoot some pictures of her event. She calls it Mappy Hour. The idea is to look at maps, get inspired, have map-talk, drink beers. I did all of the above, and took some pictures, as well. I was reminded once again it's sometimes awkward being a photographer. And I got a little tired of people's awkward sideways glances so I started saying things like, "I'm just going to get in your face for a second here," or, "just keep doing what you're doing, you look great." It made them act less weirded-out, but it made me feel like a creep still. Oh well, went with it.
