I've been warned by friends on the East Coast that it's different there. Our message is seen as more provocative, controversial, and potentially threatening than it is here in the Bay Area or the Pacific Northwest.
Up until now, we've shot exclusively on the West Coast, but tomorrow Kelly and I will head East. I'm excited to see how it all plays out and am looking forward to a bit more of a challenge.
My bags are packed with CF cards, extra batteries, audio and camera equipment, release forms, and of course buttons. You have to bring some schwag. We'll be on the East Coast for the next 3 days capturing interviews and spreading the word about this project. If you're in New York or DC check out our facebook page for event details, we'd love to see you at Why Not NYC? or Why Not DC?
If you're a birth provider who has worked on both coasts or families who have had experiences both places, what were the differences?
