When I went to the workshop in 2015 the photographer who was instructing us looked at my portfolio (I’m being generous) and said “You’re actually a competent landscape photographer. Now you need to introduce the figure.” I feel like this photo did that pretty well. I used the subjects to block the direct sunlight and a reflector to redirect the light onto their faces.


One of the harder parts of doing a shoot on location is finding the perfect spot. I found these branches while on this shoot three years ago and Sarah’s pose made it look like she was part of the flow.


One of my intentions this year is to share more of what I shoot soon after I shoot it. I met this delightful partner back in November and come the new year HE contacted ME about us starting to work together. Naturally I jumped at the chance and Saturday he came over and we did some initial shooting to get a sense of each other. He’s the first person I’ve worked with that when I said “explore the space” he did, roaming around the yard and finding spots to “be.” We’ve already scheduled another shoot and I’m hoping this will be a long-term partnership.

This puppy finally came today. My photo had been selected months ago as an honorable mention and the collection from the contest came today.

Guess at some point I should try to shoot another noteworthy photo : P

(Don’t mind the stubble; it’s for a self-portrait in a couple of weeks).
