OK, so rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated! Au contraire,
I’ve actually been very busy on what started to be a side project
with my wife and, well, as you can see I’d have to say this is
our greatest collaborative work together…
So, I’ve been reading up on Alec
Soth’s blog about how to be a good parent and pursue
my art – I know it will be a challenge but without a doubt a rewarding
and fulfilling journey. I hope Elizabeth can tolerate Daddy’s
hours of silent toiling on the rocks and in the woods with his camera.
I already know my wife deserves a medal.
A few New Year’s resolutions (and with a newborn, this will be
interesting, so don’t hold me to these - family is coming first):
1. Shoot more
2. Blog more
In the next few months I’m considering offering a few new products
as well as expanding the portfolio. With a newborn and a day job, retouching
and printing photos takes on a much lower priority. I have another half-dozen
selects that need to go into the portfolio. The work is piling up and
right now it’s just a matter of finding the time.
If I can get everything together I’ll soon start a new feature
of the blog called Photograffiti. I won't even pretend to have come
up with that word, but it seems to fit. It’ll be more like a (semi)
daily photo journal. I don’t consider myself a street photographer
or even comfortable (yet) with urban scenes in my fine art work, but
my current reality is that right now I live in a rather large city and
Photograffiti will address those aspects of my life. Even in the city
there can be beautiful light. Sometimes.
Thanks for staying tuned – more great works to come.
