2019 – Updating the Website…Publishing a Book

It’s February now, and I’m feeling a bit anxious about upgrading my website from a Flash-based format to a WordPress-based one. I hoped it would be easy, but it hasn’t been. My web-guru has been working to ensure things function properly, and I have partnered with a local custom printing service (Gango Custom Printing, www.GangoCustomPrinting.com…

2017-2018 – Winter

The winter of 2017-2018 proved to offer some great special-weather shooting…cold, but with innovative lighting, and rare (for the American Pacific Northwest) subject compositions. I had recently upgraded my Leaf Aptus MFDB to a Credo-60, plus I had the great good fortune of trading my Hassy Flexbody for a Silvestri Flexicam. That was one wondrous…

2017 Solar Eclipse…!

I had never photographed a solar-eclipse before, so the whole thing was one huge learning-experience! The “Totality” encompassed our small farm and an adjacent swath about 20-miles wide. But what did I know about “solar-filters”…..???…..(much like a welding-helmet filter, but much stronger, using higher quality glass). And plotting the AOV (Angle-of-View) for the duration of…

2015 – Reality Striking…

As far as photography, things seem to trundle-along smoothly. The Bright-Tank Gallery idea was both enlightening and exhausting. If anyone tries to sing-a-song of sweetness-n-light about the work a Gallery demands…..be sure they’re humming on-key! My shooter-buddy Ted and I worked our butts-off. And we had lots-n-lots of fun in the doing. We were able…

2013 – Updating

It’s been too long since last I updated….!!…so here is a shotgun blast of news. One of my 2011 dreams was to help establish a collaborative fine-art photo gallery, here in Silverton. Well, The Bright-Tank Gallery is now almost 1-year old, although the players are different than first-imagined (www.FaceBook.com/BrightTankGallery). My pro-shooter buddy Ted Miller and…

2012 – Dreaming

The digital world of our art medium changes so quickly, that anyone who tells you they are “on top of it” is being less than forthright with you. That said, each of us must find our own way. It’s not easy! We muddle….we fumble….we grovel & groan. But…above all…we learn. Some of my plans for…

2011 – Reflecting

2011 has been a year of admiring-inspiring. Through many permutations of my personal expressiveness, I have been greatly influenced by admiring the work and vision of various other creative souls. Sharing their work with you is like taking a vacation, of sorts. A vacation into new lands…new ways of seeing…new senses of valuing. I’d like…
