Got an email about a month ago for this assignment down in New Orleans. Right away, I was excited by the job since 1.) I love NOLA and 2.) it's dive bars! The assignment was to take two days and visit four very different dive bars spread out across the city.
I was fortunate enough to have Ash as my assistant for the two days so we planned out ahead of time the approximate time we'd take a each and used Google maps to scope out the locations. I've gotten to know New Orleans pretty good over the years but I had only heard of one of these bars, so it helps immensely to view the location to get a feel for what kind of images will fit.
