For the last couple of years I've been fortunate to be asked to tag along with the guys from Reds True Barbecue and provide photography to document their annual Pilgrimage to America.
Working alongside James Newman of Reds to document the trip we travelled through America taking in some of the best BBQ food the USA has to offer.
Working on the road is a challenge, most days involve long hours shooting in less than ideal conditions with very small windows of time to grab the shots.. The Reds Pilgrimage Blog was updated daily so images were needed pretty much immediately which means processing imagery on the move. Working on images on a cramped moving bus is a challenge at the best of times but add the fact that the guys love to party and prank and you're immersed in a chaotic world of BBQ meets Jackass..
Roll on 2016.. here's hoping for an invite!
The Reds blog is a really good read so give it a look over and if you like BBQ then get down to one of their restaurants as the food is just awesome..
2015 was a little different as we had FHM magazine come along for the ride to add to the chaos. Focusses the mind when your told your shooting for an 8 page spread. No pressure then...
Turns out the Art Director at FHM loved the images, so, fingers crossed our paths will cross again in the future!
