New Images coming soon for Syrian refugees living in Canada. So happy to be commissioned by this important museum for an upcoming show. Formal announcment on Saturday the 20th of May.
I had the chance to meet and photograph some very strong and confident women recently and as I was sitting there listeing to them chat about their achievements I found my self remembering a quote from Bella Azbug, a protest organzer from the 60's
"Women will change the nature of pawer, rather than power changing the nature of women"
As I reflect on my life and get older, I have changed as a man, I did it in relation to my wife and daughter and mother all of whom are strong and confident. They have taught me that success isn't about how much money you make, its about the difference you make in peoples lives. It is the strength of women that inspired this series of images and on this Women's Day in 2017, I hope for the future where we don't look backward at what was missing n equality but rather what can be gained in equality and understanding.
7 Humpback Whales in one Hour.
We were out for shoot and came across a pod of humpback whales with two babies and 5 adults. What a treat and surprise.
We were off Provincetown MA and were completely surprised when we saw the whales of the aft of the boat. They hung out for an hour, waved, and off they went.
Got off the plane from a fun and productive trip to NYC, and jumped right into a shoot with Nexxus Magazine with Katina at Sugar Design. A wonderful person to work and hangout with.
Its easy to write about how much I like New York and how wonderful the people are. I loved spending a week there looking for a rep and meeting new clients. It was a wonderful experience and look forward to reconnecting with the people I met in about a month.
I've just introduced a new section of work to the portfolio, but something I have been doing for a long while. Conceptual work is something that keeps my brain on overdrive. Its like I'm in a laboratory trying to figure out how to do something that normally isn't done. I'll be adding to this portfolio more and more but for now, I have included some of my award winners in this posting.
This is the one I always want to do well in, and I did. I am a winner out of ten thousand entires, and am blessed to be among a great group of photographers that win and place their images in American Photography.
