Working Man

I’m still not exactly sure how, but somehow I ended up with a job. Starting January 7th I will be starting as a Community Publications Photographer at the Des Moines Register in Des Moines, Iowa. Specifically, I will be covering the communities of Ankeny, Johnston and Urbandale.

Growing up in California, I don’t really have a firm grasp on this concept of winter. I am told it is cold and not just in the weekend snowboarding excursion to Tahoe or Mammoth kind of way.

Does anyone have any suggestions on preparing for said weather? Clothing? How to drive in the snow? Good gloves to use when shooting outdoors?

  1. Congratulations! But we will miss you at SJSU next semester. I got to shoot a high school football game in the cold. Very cold. Wear lots of layers, a hat, and gloves. It in the low 30s for the whole game and by the end of the fourth quarter I was freezing, but luckily the rain stopped right before the game started and then began again right as the game ended. I used very thin gloves that are easy to still use a camera with, but I wish I had something a little thicker. I will let you know if I find something better. What I really need is some sort of cover for my camera when it is raining.
