One of the many perks of attending and supporting Trout Unlimited and the various events though-out the year are the opportunities you come across. One such opportunity that Mary and I was lucky enough to purchase at a silent auction this past winter was a day on the water with acclaimed and noted photographer and videographer Josh Duplechian.
Current Josh is the Senior Producer for Trout Unlimited National, production all still and video for the organization. Besides the fantastic work josh does chronicling the various fresh water conservations projects and initiatives going on in many states around the US, Josh as an impressive resume of covering the Colorado Rockies as a Staff Photographer, working extensively with ESPN covering the extreme sports icon, X-Games and with NCAA sports .
Just a little to build up our day on the river with him as our donation, would go to being professional photographed as we fished, waded, floated our way down the Colorado River. Almost like wedding day pictures , but better.
Kinda cool feeling like a super-star while have a photographer with three cameras, strung round his neck , hiding in the bush, crouched down, in your face and the long distance shot, as other boats floated by just wonder, who these two people might be.
The day could not have been more beautiful at the lighting was decent to good for the portraits we wanted to get, and fish fish cooperated for the fish pictures we wanted. As you can see the colors on the western divide are turing in numerous area's providing for fantastic shots and background color.
Fish would cooperate by eating the Zimmerman Clownshoe and the Blooms Caddis all day with frequency.
Will have of Josh's photos to share in the coming week, we look forward to sharing them with you.
If you ever have the chance to bid on these packages by the likes of Josh, Kirk Deeter or Mark Lance, do not pass up the opportunities and any cost. So fun and rewarding.
