Asphalt: not a tennis term

Boy what a bad week to have the landlord decide to repave our parking lot. We had an ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers, seminar scheduled in our studio for Saturday. One week ahead of time we get notice that we will not have access to our building on Saturday. Well, that's wasn't going to work! With one sorta polite email to our landlord, we had this guy form the construction company show up at my studio. Man, what a great guy. He jumped through hoops to get our parking lots finished ahead of schedule. So, here on Friday afternoon, I sat on the couch in our lobby and shot these marvelous action shots.

When a situation arises that has difficult ramifications for others, it is nice to find people that are willing to go that extra step to make things better. Our seminar was in trouble. How to get the 40+ people into the studio? This one supervisor took it upon himself to remedy our problem. People were able to park in our parking lot.

I like to think that this is the way that I personally act, but also the way we choose to run our business. Thanks to Patrick McDonald who gave a damn.
