Woke up early on Saturday September 23rd and made my way to Long Beach and eventually to the helicopter that would be my ride to photograph the 2016 SCOPE Long Beach Poker Run. Couldn't have asked for better weather for the Poker Run and photos of the boats and participants. We had a few restrictions in the helicopter that made thing a little rough, the first was a 65mph speed limit, and the tough one was that we had to stay at least 300 feet above the water. That made it a little tough with a long lens out in the wind, but still managed to get quite a few nice photos of the boats as they ran to Newport Beach, and then to Catalina. Thanks for looking at the gallery.
