My Favorites This Week – Panama City Photographer

It’s a pretty fun week so far for this Panama City photographer. I have covered boats, blood drives and everything in between. I had a moment of excitement when my reporter spotted what we thought was a cigarette-smoking squirrel. Turns out he was just snacking on a mushroom, but it still made for a fun photograph. I also went into ludicrous speed trying to get a photo of a rainbow. Traffic was heavy and the rainbow was fading in and out, but I got lucky enough to get a pretty photo for our faith page. In photojournalism you never know what you’ll be photographing. You must be ready, camera in hand, for whatever comes your way.

Panama City Beach Surf Report

Being landlocked in Tennessee my growing up years I always dreamed of surfing. It only took 11 years after I left Tennessee, but I finally moved to a place I could surf! The first thing I did (after getting married my beautiful bride at St. Andrews State Park) was buy a surfboard. After a couple years, I finally got to the point to where I could sit in the lineup with the surfers I aspired to be as good as. If you are coming to town and want to give surfing a try, check out the surf reports below and see if the waves will be good during your stay. If you would like some recommendations on where to get a board or surf, contact me and I would love to help you out. See you in the lineup!
