Fire destroys buildings in British Columbia
PHOTOGRAPHY AND FIRE TAKES COURAGE AND GUTS AND DO NOT BE AFRAID TO GET OUTSIDE OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE FELLOW PHOTOGRAPHY FRIENDS!
HERE IS MY STORY...ABOUT FIRE THIS WEEK......
So I had the guts to go up to the fire and security to ask persmission to let me take pictures when the fire was almost contained so the area was still evacuated and they let me enter only because I presented myself professionally I was told. To be a photographer one also must be a negotiator and work as a photo journalist by getting the story without the words and asking permission and being respectful of the laws and people for your story. Do not be scared to ask permission remember all anyone can say to you is no..and you walk away, but if they say yes........to a photographer at a fire this is what can happen at an evacuated building.....there will be more pictures soon.....I can not keep up to all the fires happening around me!
Photographers have to be prepared to be professional and get outside of the comfort zones. When I approached this site I came up to it by accident by driving by an area that abruptly was stopping traffic. I was wearing white pants, pulled over my vechile and walked right up to the security armed with my camera and told him I had a job to do and I would appreciate it so much If I could be guided or directed to where I could ask permission to take these important pictures for the world to see how one cigarette or one little flame can cause major major damage!
To get a better look open the picture in full because the blog shows it cropped when you see it full you can see all the rust that happened in 24 hours when you mix fire and water it rusts and melts everything!
