Welcome to Colorado Springs Daily Photo!

Hi, I'm Tamera, a professional wedding, portrait and boudoir photographer in Colorado Springs. But this blog isn't about my professional work; no, it's a daily love note to my beautiful city, where I've lived for most of my life. I love it here and I hope you enjoy seeing Colorado Springs through my eyes and lens!

You oughta be in pictures

Here's the main courtroom inside the former El Paso County Courthouse, now known as the Pioneers Museum. What an amazing room! Imagine justice being handed down from this imposing bench. The ornate carving on the paneling alone is mind boggling! Behind me are rows and rows of seats that are also carved wood. Amazing, no?

The Pioneers Museum, and this room especially, has been featured in a few films and made-for-TV movies. Since Colorado Springs isn't exactly a hotbed of movie production it's kind of a big deal to have anyone filming here. I do distinctly remember a couple of these productions when they came to town. When The Incident was being filmed I was working at a local pro camera shop, and some of their crew came into our store looking for various odds and ends (and I remember that one of them was very rude!).

Here's a list of the productions that have used the Pioneers Museum and its beautiful courtroom for location shooting (click on it for a larger view) -- my friend Tony had small parts in all of them, and my friend Chuck was also an extra in The Incident:

Pretty cool huh?

CSI: Miami is filmed in the office where I used to work. The film crew was very rude at first, until we all figured out how to co-exist. It took months, tho - longer than your crew was probably in town.
