Shooting professionally for 30 years and calling WNY home base, I have had some great experiences and been fortunate enough to meet some great people. Having worked assignments from the White House to Sports Illustrated and everything in between set the stage to cover the events of "Extreme Week". The neighborhood means a lot to me personally as my family lived on many streets surrounding the "Hero" house and both my wife and I worked in that space as well.
It was an awesome event to see so many different people come together and work towards a very common goal. I'm not sure if it was the crazy time line to accomplish the tasks that left little to no room for petty issues to cause problems, but it sure didn't hurt as everyone moved towards the finish line.
Congratulations to everyone who made this possible and helped change a neighborhood in need. I hope you enjoy the re-cap.
