Quack - do you live in Des Moines year round? I'll be there for Christmas. Would be cool to meet up to shoot if you're not too busy.
I do indeed live here full time. And I would love to get some shooting done together when you are out here. I think you did some shots last year at a park by my house. I think we even had a short conversation about it if I remember correctly.
Keep my in the loop as your plans get closer. We will set up some time to get together. Let me know what you want to shoot as I have a few photog friends that might help us out with locations.
