Creative Collaboration Scores Cover of Estetica Magazine…

I was lucky enough to be included in a creative collaboration last month. A fabulous Hair Stylist, Gabi Revellese, asked me to shoot some of her designs.  The model was going to be one of my favorites, Sarah Garringer. The idea of working with these two was a no-brainer and I jumped at the chance.  We received word yesterday that the submitted images from that shoot were featured on Estetica’s US website and social media platforms and was their cover photo.

It is great to be featured this way, but even better to be asked to join such talents in a collaboration like this!  Thank you Gabi and Sarah for including me!

Here are some additional images from the shoot…

Country Music City USA – Lensbaby Photo Walk Part Deux!

During our bitter cold photo walk on Saturday, we had to escape the elements and duck into stores to thaw out a bit.  One of the stores we found ourselves in was a cowboy boot store.  Here are some of my favorite images from inside the store…

Lensbaby Photo Walk…brrrrrr!

Imaging USA was in Nashville this past week. As part of the big photography conference/trade show, the fine people at Lensbaby sponsored a Photo Walk on Saturday afternoon. More than 20 people signed up for the walk, but due to snow/ice store the previous day and bitter cold, only two of us showed up.  But Erika and I showed up.

We met up with the Lensbaby crew, Lauren and Mishalla, at Tootsies World Famous Orchid Lounge, and explored the Lower Broadway area.  We made our way up and down the tourist thoroughfare, popping into stores when we were too cold.

Here are 15 of my favorite images from the shoot…

Cold New Years Day Nature…

New Years day I wanted to get a jump start on one of my 2018 Goals, to shoot more Fine Art images. Last year, I neglected my fine art work in favor of more fashion/portraiture shooting.  So, braving the cold, I went to Bells Bend Park to do some shooting with a new lens, the Lensbaby 85 Velvet.

The lens, purchased using my Christmas gift $$, is a manual focus lens and I knew I would have a learning curve ahead to get ideal images.  I decide to embrace the blur and even experimented with some multiple exposures.  Let me know what you think…

British Dogs on Holiday…

During our travels around Devon and Cornwall, one thing that really stood out to us was the number of people on holiday with their dogs. No matter where we went, there was at least a few dogs with their owners. Most every castle, ruin, abbey, or whatever allowed people to bring their dogs with them. Most shops and restaurants had water outside their door for quenching the thirst of their canine visitors.

Here is a collection of images I captured of Brits and their dogs…

The Church of St. Michael de Rupe…

One of our days exploring Devon County, we drove through Dartmoor National Park and stopped at a small church built upon a large hill, Brent Tor, overlooking the countryside.  The Church of St. Michael de Rupe, stands 1,110 feet above sea level on an extinct volcanic cone and was built during the 12th and 13th century.
