I have traveled to all states but three, and about 13 countries. Mostly for photography and video projects for my client’s marketing uses. The only states I haven't visited are Alaska and Hawaii, and for some reason, I also skipped over Montana.
A few years ago I was working on a project in Washington DC that included video interviews of governors. One of my subjects was the Montana Governor Steve Bullock. After introducing myself, I told him I had never been to Montana, but that it was on my list to visit. We had a little chuckle, and he told me where I need to go on an extended weekend visit. I still look forward to visiting Montana someday.
Video Production - Location Research
I always enjoy traveling for my work. Photography and video production, allows me to really learn about a location. It’s the adventure of finalizing the creative, travel logistics, local insights, and a crew to create a strong visual narrative for the company’s project.
A few years ago while I was traveling on Southwest Airlines and was sitting in my favorite seat. It's an exit row seat, over the wing with no seat in front of it. I can stretch out my long legs and enjoy the extra space. One day, I took a photograph of my feet stretched out in front of me, happy that I had secured my favorite seat; and I posted it on Instagram. I’m sure the taller basketball players that board after I do give me the evil eye.
I am lucky to get this seat often, and I’m sure everyone is envious. :) Now, every time I sit on a plane, I photograph my feet, especially when I grab my winning seat!
I find other people now do the same thing and tag me: "Hey, @scottindermaur look, I got your favorite seat!"
Over the years, I have accumulated 55 photographs on Instagram of my feet on the plane. A fun little thing to share and you can check them out with hashtag #airlinefeet or at my account @scottindermaur. I can't wait for the day I'm flying to Montana so I can tag their governor!
