Operation Convergent Response #ocr2017 was a total blast!! This huge event took place at the Guardians Center in Perry, Georgia and was a major collaboration between companies such as Verizon, Nokia and Aegex Technologies LLC to demonstrate the technological ecosystems in a large scale, disaster scenario environments. I was blown away at the technologies that can be deployed to aid in disaster management, rescue, recovery and even law enforcement engagements.
Aegex Technologis, LLC contracted yours truly to provide photographic and video coverage for 2 days of the week-long exercises. There were so many technology demonstrations as well as re-enacted scenarios showing how all these new technologies can be employed. For me, as a techno-nut and especially law enforcement fan, this was just the coolest experience to witness.
I had my usual “action set” for the photography, my 2 Nikon cameras running a wide angle Tamron Lens and 70-200mm Tamron to get those ever important closeups. I slapped my 2 GoPro cameras in to the hot-shoe mounts so there will be a behind the scenes video coming soon. To see the Sneak Peeks Gallery, just click right here. The gallery is a low-rez library perfect for social media and online reports. If you do use some of these images, I'd love it if you'd throw out a photo credit and link to my site: www.dcollinsphoto.com. Cool?
