The Oak Ridge Boys Perform at the Northern Wisconsin State Fair

July 20, 2013 Travis Dewitz

The Oak Ridge Boys kicked off the first concert at the Northern Wisconsin State Fair on Wednesday evening. They did a meet and greet just before going on stage for their incredible performance. They had the crowd standing by the end of their concert performing their top hits Elvira and Bobbie Sue.  Cans of Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy  were delivered to the stage for the band to enjoy with their audience. I was also able to talk photography and cameras with William Lee Golden as he not only has a passion for music but also for photography. They were a great addition to the Northern Wisconsin State Fair.

I. Love. Photography. I love it. It lightens my heart, fills my soul, and allows me to capture life the way that I see it. I constantly yearn to show life in a way that hasn’t been seen before, to bring images to people in a fresh and innovative way. My favorite focus in photography, my specialty I guess you would say, is Railroad Photography & Art. Something about the rumbling of these great, big, beautiful machines. The way they shake the earth beneath you as they rumble by, how they invade your chest and you can feel the rumble inside you. The plumes of heat on a hot day represented in a heat wave. Snaking through a western valley, void of trees or any other distracting element. Just the train, by itself, in it’s own inexplicable beauty and power. From the time I was a child, they have captured my imagination. I’ve recently gotten into portraiture a bit, and I want to bring some of my experiences with trains to that arena. To capture the power of a person, the sadness, loneliness, omniscience, pride, love, & carefree spirit in a way that hasn’t been done before. I want people to look at themselves in a photograph I have taken, and see a side of themselves that they think no one else has ever seen. Dewitz Photography is all about capturing a moment in a way that has never been seen before, capturing a beauty that some never knew was even there.
