Recently I was bestowed with the honor of an invitation to what is to me, the most prestigious Gallery in all of Denver: The Denver Photo Art Gallery. Why? because my photos share the same line of sight as my favorite photographer’s images: John Fielder. This is the first Art Gallery that I have had a chance to be a part of and I am loving it.
The gallery has a rotating exhibit which is currently John Fielder’s Students and prior to was a photo display with images from the recent Fires in Colorado. The space hosts several cutting edge photographers from Landscape – Hood Ornaments and Wildlife to Light Painting. It really is an eclectic group of artists which I still can’t believe that I am a part of….
On the First Friday of every month, the Denver Arts District hosts their Art Walk. The streets fill up with people, vendors, and artists showing and selling their work. Its a great way to see some local art and meet the people behind the vision. I love getting a chance to talk about my photography.
I still have the months of February and March in my current contract of Residency. I hope you will come down to a First Friday event to meet me and see my photographs as they were intended, LARGE.
The Gallery is located at 833 Santa Fe Dr in Denver Colorado and is currently open from 9 – 5 Tuesday – Saturday. Closed on Sunday and Monday.
The Gallery will open on a First Friday Art Walk from 9 – 9.
On January 4, 2013 I will be at the Denver Photo Art Gallery (833 Santa Fe – Denver, Colorado) hosting my space between the hours of 6 – 9 pm. Come on down and see the new photos “Silverthorne Lights” and the “Arrival of Winter” which was recently seen on NASA’s Space.Com. Also new in the Gallery last month is the “Great Rift of the Milky Way”.
Stellar Tuesday – December 11, 2012: Snow covered trees and Orion high in the sky are signs that Winter has arrived in Summit County, Colorado. Shooting this scene was every bit as cold as it looks (-10 f ). I had to surrender to my Jeep once during the shoot and when I was done, my thumb that had no feeling, once it began to thaw felt like it was repeatedly being slammed in a car door. –Not a bad trade off in my mind.
This scene is actually composed of 2 photographs stitched in Photoshop as I could not squeeze the entire scene into a single frame with my 24mm. The illumination in the trees was courtesy of a passing car.
Stellar Tuesday – Dec 4, 2012: Starry Night in the Gore Range – Middle Park, Colorado
News: Don’t forget that I will be at the Denver Photo Art Gallery from 6-9+ pm to host my space and talk about my photos. There will also be a 25 % sale on all my photos as well as many other photographers. Great chance for a unique Holiday Gift!
Stellar Tuesday – November 27, 2012: Orion rises above Ute Peak of the Williams Fork Range – Summit County, Colorado. This was one of those shots where pre-planning was a major success – accurately planning for Orion rising w/ the optimal amount of light. Ive taken a similar shot in the past (minus Orion) but had been planning this shot for a long time with one missing component: a 50mm lens. I recently purchased one of these lenses and have started to execute the shots in my head.
Please note the faint meteor in the upper right and the Orion Nebula (in the sword) which appears as a small version of what it really looks like – a star forming region of gas and dust.
Reminder that December 7 2012 is another First Friday Art Walk in the Denver Arts District. Please come down to the Denver Photo Art Gallery where I will be from 6-9+ pm to host my space and talk about my photos. There will also be a 25 % sale on all my photos as well as many other photographers.
Summit County, Colorado: I was fortunate to have an article run about my photography in our local paper, the Summit Daily News. To read this article please follow this link: http://www.summitdaily.com/article/20121019/AE/121019757
In other news, I am waiting to hear back from LandscapePhotographyMagazine.Com as to when my Harvest Moon 2012 photo will be featured in the “Inspirations” section of the online publication.
Stellar Tuesday – Oct 16, 2012
This week is “Milky Way through Aspen Trees”. With the moon rising early in the morning I was able to get out under some dark sky’s in the Williams Fork Range and do some shooting – nevermind two packs of nearby coyotes on either side of me carrying on something fierce. Every once in a while something freaks me out. This was the case here but nothing compared to the bull moose who came upon me in the dark a few weeks ago.
This shot, despite its square shape is actually a 5 photo Panoramic. The perspective is looking up hill which helped to bring the stars to nearly the bottom of the frame. The challenge was finding a spot where the foliage was low enough where I could get a good view uphill with little interference.
This Friday, Oct 5th is not only a First Friday event in the Denver Arts District but the opening of my Night / Astro Photography collection at the Denver Photo Art Gallery at 833 Santa Fe (8th and Santa Fe). This is a huge honor for me to display along side some Amazing Photographers including John Fielder’s Colorado of which I am a huge fan.
Stop down and see the gallery. I will be there as close to 6 as possible and will stay until the gallery closes. Hope to see you there!!!
