Taylor Hicks & John Daly


The kick off to Regions Tradition Pro-Am golf tournament with a pre-party at Saws Juke Joint

Earlier this week, I was asked to come out and shoot the pre-party jam session at Saws Juke Joint in Birmingham for Taylor Hicks. He and golfer, John Daly would be performing to kick off this week's Regions Traditions Pro-Am tournament.

I knew it would probably be a packed house, but I had no idea. As soon as I arrived, I began to stress about how difficult it was going to be for me to move around and get those perfect angles that every photographer craves.

Would I be annoying to the loyal fans who came out several hours early to get the prized seat?

To my surprise, NO! The fans were so awesome, and made sure to help move out of my way when I was needing to go from point A to point B. They even brought me water!

Despite all the help, it was still difficult to maneuver the large crowd.. but it would have been near impossible if I had no help at all.

It takes a village.. and I was so happy and relieved to see the quality fans these guys have. They were nothing but supportive! This was all I could have asked for. It was most definently a party worth attending, so I was happy I got to be able to get out there and document it.
