Field Notes

Working In Memphis

Due to a recent print press pass, I was lucky enough to visit the home of the blues, Memphis Tennessee. With time being of the essence, my four day blues filled adventure would be a jam packed one. 22hr travel to and fro and a full day inspecting labels, was equally balanced with a walk/stumble down the legendary Beale St, grade A BBQ, a quick peak in the Gibson guitar factory, watching the sunrise over the Mississippi and a creepy tour of Graceland.

With it being the year of Instagram and the dawn of the 15 second Instagram video, I thought it only fitting to document the entire journey using just that.

So sit back, kick off your blue suede shoes and enjoy my magical & musical journey to Memphis.
