Looking towards spring

If you’ve been a regular visitor to this site you’ve noticed that there hasn’t been too much action here lately. I still believe in The Handmade Photograph and the handmade movement in general. I’m taking a little break from the competitive online publishing world for a while. That doesn’t mean I am abandoning it, so I hope you’ll check in on  Facebook for current updates and things of interest to photographers.

As a working photographer and photo teacher I make new images every day (just like you) and try desperately to find the time to work on my art—it’s a delicate balancing act as you know and people who are compelled to make art manage to make it work. Sometimes the art loses out to mundane everyday events and responsibilities, and sometimes it wins.

I hope you make a photograph today, and tomorrow and the next day. Experiment, test out an idea and try again if it didn’t work out. That’s what keeps artists moving forward.
