Creative Photography

Main Street Reflections

In July of 2011 I found myself taking a break from my painting to reconsider the direction I had been taking. Up to that point it had been about production for fairs and that often meant judging just how many mission paintings I need to have on hand for a particular show. Fairs had, because of the economy, been less financially beneficial and after the completion of my studio it meant closing the studio while away for a fair.

These 2D artists that were still doing well at fairs had gone to unlimited and unsigned giclee prints. For three years I had been weighing the pros and cons of prints and decided that since I liked to paint it was counter productive. All you sold were prints. Not your originals.

I began looking around for another way to catch the low end of the buyer's market and began to look seriously at my photography. Up to then photography was a tool for painting or marketing of paintings. I decided to enter an exhibit for photographers and see how it went. I won a second place my first time out and sold one of my other entries. I have continued to win prizes and sell photos.

I limit my run on prints, usually between 20 and 50. And I can print them to a size you want to fill that particular space.

  1. I love your work. I have recently discovered photography as well. Looks like we are on a similar trajectory. Must do art.

  2. I added your blog to my blog reader. I like your thoughts about creativity and aspire to get back into photography and perhaps study art. Right now I am just anonymously blogging but feeling better about that just reading some of your comments. And inspired viewing your photographs.


I appreciate all kind comments on my art and poetry.
