Wow, the sands of my time in Iowa have been draining fast. Two and a half weeks in; one and a half weeks to go. One week until my presentation at the University of Iowa! Too soon! Its been a productive time, I think. I’ve finished nine works with many more in the works and had a baby!
I promise not to flood my Facebook page
with baby photos, but Logan is a photogenic dude! He was born on a warm Monday afternoon at 1:22 in Des Moines. I’ll write more about this amazing day soon!
When I’m not trying to teach Logan how to compose my images or rambling about aerodynamics and my favorite book, The Edge of Physics, I have been doing what I love- looking for beauty in Iowa. I must say, it hasn’t been too difficult. Today, while we were driving from Lacona to Des Moines for a check up at Methodist Hospital I had to stop and capture a giant tree in an even larger field shrouded in fog. We were late, but it was worth it. What I’m trying to say is that every thing, everywhere, can be beautiful. The right perspective and frame of mind combined with the willingness to stretch your horizons, both actual and conceptual, will lead to new discoveries and rediscoveries of the world around you. That is the driving force behind my photography, it is my personal challenge: share the moments that inspire you to see the beauty of the world that envelopes you.
Nine finished images from the greater Des Moines Area
Unfortunately, I won’t have too much time to capture and create before my presentation on the 11th. My presentation at the University of Iowa will be on Friday at 5pm in the Illinois Room. The event is free. I will be speaking about my story and how I landed on this career path as well as discussing the theory behind my images and I will introduce post processing in depth. I will also be sharing my portfolio and fielding any curveballs you can throw my way. It should be fun!
Later this month the adventure continues in NYC at RAW Artists Presents: Spectrum
This show promises to be spectacular. I will be showing my work in a gallery showing style along side a dozen+ artists, fashion designers, and musicians. The waiting list to present their craft at this show is over two years! The artists showing work here are very talented and extremely dedicated. Tickets are $15 online
and $20 at the door. See the attached flyer for details!
Today, Friday the 4th, is the last day of the initial release sale of Kualoa Dock. Available in color and black and white.
Initial release pieces available for 20% off until April 4th
I hope to meet many of you along my travels this summer. I intend to share the journey each step along the way directly though email, Facebook Instagram
. You can join me along the way by investing in the art here
(and get a great deal on the art). Mahalo to everyone who has invested so far, I’m 20% toward my goal!
