TacOps East Published Photos

January 13, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I am always happy to see photos that I have taken used in publications, websites, and prints.  I often have an opportunity to photograph tactical teams during training and actual events.  I was asked to provide some photos for an upcoming trade show- TacOps East, so I submitted some of my photos from the past year.

A few months later the brochure arrived at a friend's mailbox.  He thought there might be photos that I had taken, so he sent it over to me.  I checked out their website and recognized the banner photo as one that I had submitted.  The original photo is below- This was from a training day in an industrial area.  The setting was really neat because the buildings were actually being demolished in preparation for new construction. This made for a very stark and edgy scene.  As you can see they flipped it and gave it the cool graphics. for a grittier edge.

They also used a photo from a different day as another banner:

Again they added the cool graphics, the original is below:


A few other photos were also used online and in the brochure. All of these photos were taken with my Nikon D200 with the 18-200VR lens- I didn't have the D800 yet when I took them.

Tactical operators with cool gear are always great subjects for photography. These are the people who run toward the problem when others are running away.  I try to capture a portion of the determination and dedication to duty that they display every day.
