Winter 2010 – Popham Beach Sunset

Also in February, I made my first trip to Popham Beach State Park one late afternoon.  Magnificent.  The weather wasn’t too cold but, it being February in Maine at the beach, I had the place almost entirely to myself.  I’ve been there once since and haven’t yet scanned those photos, but I expect to go […]

Winter 2010 – Camden Hills

Here are a few images from this winter from just around the corner from my house in Camden Hills State Park.  These were all taken in early February (incidentally our last real snowfall), the first two while standing on the beach on which we will be swimming in not too long.  It was a particularly […]

And speaking of Blurb…

There are a number of updates to the ubiquitous print-on-demand service that might be of interest to folks.  First, the B3 program that they have had the last few years for professional photographers is ending as of March 18, 2010, per an e-mail they sent to me.  According to Blurb, they are rolling out actual […]

Blurb Book update

As some of you may recall, I self-published a Blurb book last year entitled ‘Red Rock’.  Red Rock included images from my multiple trips to the Utah parks over the previous decade.  I was pleasantly surprised with the print quality from Blurb – given how many horror stories were out there, perhaps lowered expectations also […]

Shows, Shows, Shows

Well, make that two shows upcoming from my perspective.  Two shows that I’m currently in, the Pixels show in Lewiston’s Gallery 5 and the Aarhus Gallery show in Belfast, are coming down this weekend.  Luckily, two new shows are starting to replace those.  First, I’ve been selected for the Maine Photography Show 2010 in Boothbay […]

Upcoming Show at Åarhus Gallery in Belfast

I’ll have a piece hanging at the Åarhus Gallery in Belfast, Maine, starting this coming Friday.  The show should be a great one with an incredibly wide variety of work, and a signficant portion of any sales go to local food kitchens.  Great art for a great cause.  The opening reception is Friday, March 5th […]

Plagiarism or Homage?

There is a minor ongoing Internet kerfluffle regarding the images of David Burdeny and whether or not his images, particularly his Sacred and Secular series, are copies of the work of other photographers.  (As an aside, I’m a fan of Burdeny’s work generally).  I first heard about this from the Conscientuous blog – posts here […]

Peter Turnley on Haiti

Just posted this morning is an excellent (and heartbreaking) piece of that increasingly rare beast, long form photojournalism.  Peter Turnley’s photographs provide a striking narrative of the recovery (or at least the beginnings of a recovery) for Haiti approximately three weeks after the devastating earthquakes.  Kudos to Mike Johnston’s The Online Photographer for providing the […]
