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?
