Wedding & Portrait Photography
I work for Acadiana Publishing which puts out two monthly publications, The Greater Lafayette Business Journal and Cajun Outdoors. My boss sent me and our writer, Rob, all the way out to Pierre Part to interview Troy Landry of the History Channel’s Swamp People for Cajun Outdoors. I had a caught a few episodes and had mixed feeling about the show and how it portrayed Louisiana. This trip totally changed my mind. Pierre Part didn’t take long to get to and it looked just like any other Cajun town that I’ve been to. It made me realize that they could have this very show out of Kaplan about crawfishing but instead it’s out of Pierre Part about alligator hunting.
Troy was so nice, humble, down to earth, and welcoming to us. He is building a beautiful house out of sunken cypress, that he was kind enough to give us a tour of (It looked as great as it smelled!). We had a nice laid back interview with him on a tailgate in his backyard over a cup of Community Coffee.
And then I realize that this is my job. I get to document the area that I not only live in but grew up in.
Anyway here are a few of my faves. You can look for this issue to hit stands around Oct. 15.
