Picturesque Scotland

I didn't have nearly enough time in Edinburgh when I was there several years ago. In fact, all these images, except for the red door, were taken off the top of the same open air bus tour through the city. It's history is staggering and it's beauty breathtaking!

This scene has always looked fake to me! So I added a little blur to exaggerate the feel.

The bus paused enough at a stop sign for me to take five or so photos of this square. Exaggerated layers and some deliberately sloppy photoshop creates a curious look. The red door is the coolest church door I've ever seen! The Scottish have some serious style.

No caption needed!

Rock Americana

I had a cool experience today. Fender corporation is replicating Eddie Cochran's Gretsch guitar and will have a limited number made for sale. For those unfamiliar with Eddie, you can get caught up here, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eddie_Cochran. I was commissioned to organize and photograph some of his personal effects to be included on a DVD. We poured over some truly priceless items owned by this incredibly talented young man who's life and potential ended far too soon. I've attached a collage of images, including some never before seen taken by his mom.

Hiking in Zion

Back in July we forded up the Virgin River in Zion, http://www.masterworkimage.blogspot.com/2009/08/zion-remix.html. It got pretty deep in some spots and it was everything I could do to keep my camera dry ; )

Considering my last post, I should explain I haven't gone off the abstract deep end! My tv made this fascinating portrait of Pat Sajak this evening and I figured it was as good an image as any to test out larger images on the ol' blog.

Rangefinder Spread

I haven't received the magazine yet, but I did get a PDF of the spread today. The images below are clickable if you'd like to read the interview questions. Thanks again to all who made this possible by voting during the final cut! Thanks as well, to Rangefinder magazine for the opportunity!

I had a good run of weddings recently, three in three weeks last month. A sampling of them is below. Most know of my main site, www.masterworkimage.com, but not my wedding site, www.masterworkweddings.com. More can be viewed there. I never could shoot just one thing, much to the chagrin of my photography teachers. I like to think the same emotions and sensibilities run through all my work, from the five different portfolios on my main site to my wedding imagery. I think of it as photographic cross-training. Besides, it's really hard to put the camera down when it's connected to my hand!
