Photoshoot with TJ Oshie

Photoshoot with TJ Oshie

I used to be a big negative self talk person, but then I realized that my perception of myself changed based on the way I talk about myself. Yes, I missed last weeks newsletter, which will happen when I’m super busy or have nothing to talk about so make sure to subscribe so you see all of them!

PHOTOSHOOT WITH TJ OSHIE
One of the cool parts of my job is the brands we represent. There are companies such as Barstool Sports, Progressive, and Kroger, but then there is Warroad.

Warroad is a brand built for hockey, by hockey. One of the founders is Washington Capital’s TJ Oshie. So this past week, we hopped on a plane and headed to Washington DC to do a photoshoot. We planned out the shoot to show off the luxury side of being a NHL athlete, but what we got was so much more. Oshie has a nice house and car, but is one of the most down to earth guys you will meet.

The shoot started and ended before we could even blink an eye. We had so much fun capturing him in his back yard and his gym. Our team was similar to the last Warroad shoot we did in Chicago. We worked with Alex Sroka, where he was capturing photos and I was capturing video. This allowed us to capture so much more in a 4 hour period than if we were simply on our own.

It’s trips like this that feel like a dream during the moment then brings you back to life on the plane ride home. I love getting to capture authentic moments with people that seem out of my reach.
ALWAYS SUNNY IN MYTHIC QUEST
If you have never seen Always Sunny in Philadelphia, go see it; it’s incredibly offense, but hilarious none the less. The show I am recommending this week is much more tame, but includes a ton of the cast from Always Sunny.
Rob McElhenney basically plays the same character from Always Sunny

Mythic Quest is an Apple TV+ original (wow, another one) that focuses on a video game development team. The main threads of the story revolve around gaming development, but the best parts of the show require no gaming knowledge. This show plays with every type of co-working dynamic you can think of; imagine The Office mixed with Silicon Valley and Always Sunny. It’s quirky and stupid at times, but the characters are what always draws me back in.

My favorite character has to be Brad played by Danny Pudi from Community. He is always worried about how they will make money and that puts his characters in very grey areas of morality. It is the extremes of comedy that this show truly excels. I would recommend this to anyone who recently finished Silicon Valley because it has the same off the walls vibe.
Every character plays a big part is showing team dynamics
