Well today was a beautiful day outside today, just finishing editing a bunch of pics. I was just upset that I could not please everyone LOL. Had a couple people look at their pics from an event that I shot and they did not like the way the looked. So it was a tough day. Just glad its over, but you know I still get to take pics for a living and I love it!

Cioran's Road, The Lost Eden: a poetic documentary for my first post

Je donnerais tous les paysages du monde pour celui de mon enfance. (I would give all the landscapes of the world for that of my childhood.)

Rasinari, fabulous village of Transylvania, myth in the myth, which saw born from numerous Romanian men of letters such as the poet Octavian Goga or the philosopher Constantin Noica, Rasinari who above all is this lost and ever found paradise which so much idealized Cioran.

Oh well, lets see if I manage to sequence some of the colour work. I'm still less than a third into scanning and at least uploading them into slideshows helps for editing. Ideas popping. Probably I'll delete the whole thing very soon. Then start again. I have not been in the mood for single images for quite a while, and colour makes me think of dominoes. Sort of how to fit an overall composition (one side of the domino) with an overall technique (the other side of the domino). Add to that… Continue

Amputee Conference and International Festival @ Old Dominion University

Well, its Saturday and just finished covering two more events for ODU. The Amputee Conference was held at The Sheraton Waterside Hotel and it was actually pretty interesting advancements in prosthetics. I figure a few more years and we can build a Six Million Dollar man. The shoot itself was just lecture so of course YAWN.....but also I look at it as a challenge to try and find something interesting to shoot. It is tough though. the treat though was that ODU had their first International… Continue

The Magic Of Night

Night, the beloved. Night, when words fade and things come alive. When the destructive analysis of day is done, and all that is truly important becomes whole and sound again. When man reassembles his fragmentary self and grows with the calm of a tree. ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry…

Okay, today I pretty much spent it in front of the computer. I had a shoot this evening but I wont get to it until tomorrow.

Covering the OnFilm Fest.

Well the week went by and what a busy one. Covered the Onfilmfest all last week and I am just wore out. The upside is that I got to cover people like Mia Farrow and Danny Glover. They were both kind enough to give me a few min. for impromptu photo sessions. Danny Glover and Mia Farrow were very passionate people on what their views are.

And the winning Portrait is...............


Its Portrait Competition time and the competition was hot so with institutionalized generosity we have decided to give three awards. 1st prize and two Honorable Mentions. Many of the portraits are really beautiful so well done those of who made the effort.

I must say that Marcus Bleasdale's portrait really caught our attention but we couldn't figure out why Marcus insisted on sitting on the chimps head so he failed to make the grade this time.

Honorable… Continue
