July! It is hard to believe that June has passed already…Fireworks are on many people’s mind here in the United States because of the upcoming July 4th holiday, so I thought that I’d mention here that I’ve updated my Pyrotechnic portfolio quite a bit over the last few months, and you can see many new Pyrotechnic images on my website. Thank you also to blogger extraordinaire Elin Spring, who today featured my photographs on her July 4th post!

And if you are already tired of fireworks and are in the mood for moons instead, I just posted three new photographs from May’s full moon on my site, too.

For those of you who are fine art photographers in New England, the Griffin Museum is hosting this year’s New England Portfolio Reviews in a few weeks on July 18th-19th. There are many great reviewers and also a significant amount of educational presentations, too, that are available even to people who are not seeking reviews of their work. I’ve gone in the past and have had great results, but I can’t go this year because of scheduling conflicts.

I have a few current and upcoming exhibitions I’ve noted on my News page of my website, including the current VoxPhotographs exhibition that includes seven of my Pyrotechnic images and the upcoming exhibition at the MDI Biological Laboratories that includes four of my Pyrotechnic series. You can also find my work this summer at Shaw’s Contemporary Jewelry in Northeast Harbor as well as the Kingman Gallery in Deer Isle.

On The Paper Chase, my fine art printing blog, I just posted about upcoming solo exhibitions in July for three Nickelson Editions clients, Linden Frederick, Lynn Karlin, & Terry Hire. I do my best to post there about client shows, so if you have any please send information about them along.

For those of you in midcoast Maine, the summer session for the Maine Media Workshops is in full swing, and one thing I really love there is the nighttime slideshow presentations by visiting photographers. These presentations are open to the public — you can see upcoming ones here, which include photographers such as Sam Abell and Joyce Tenneson as well as many others.
