Long time, no blog...

Trying the new blogger interface... sorry for the lack of posts here, but Tumblr has certain advantages.

This is Katie Damron Potter from late summer... awesome shoot with Katie, yielded a ton of good images!

Closing Reception April 30

My "Body of Work" Exhibit will be drawing to a close this week, but going out with a bang of a Closing Reception on Saturday night, from 6 to 11. Artwork, great people, refreshments, prizes, and maybe a few surprises! You can RSVP on Facebook or just stop by. If Saturday night isn't convenient, the show will be up during regular Gallerie hours, too.

Hope to see you there... tell a buddy, bring a friend, buy sell trade but don't you dare miss it!

My first solo exhibit: BODY OF WORK, Opening March 19

Saturday, March 19 at 7:00pm at Gallerie Zaum, Newport, KY 41071

BODY OF WORK: My first solo exhibit will feature over 30 of my artistic nude photographs on display, numerous smaller works, as well as a video presentation and more. I hope you'll all stop by for the opening night festivities, or make your way to the show during its run through April 23rd.

Gallerie Zaum is located in the heart of "Sin City" Newport, KY, just over the bridge from Cincinnati and a few blocks from the Newport Aquarium, The Levy, Hofbrauhaus, Southgate House, and other attractions. Street parking readily available.

Contact me for more information or visit my Facebook event for more details and to RSVP.

That's Ami Amnesia in the photo. Thanks to Adam Shelton for putting on the show, and special thanks to Esgee for his support!

Nude Nite Orlando

Also managed to neglect mentioning that I have two pieces in the annual Nude Nite Art Exposé in Orlando. The show opened Thursday, and runs tonight and tomorrow, so still a little time to check it out if you're in the area.

Happy to add that one piece sold the first night! Thanks to Kat for letting me know about the sale, and big thanks to Peyton for encouraging me to enter! (That's Peyton doing her meerkat impersonation.)

Dirty Show 12!

Am pleased to have work in the Detroit Dirty Show yet again this year... opening night actually started a few hours ago, but it's going on the rest of this weekend, Valentine's Day, then again next weekend, so if you can make it to Detroit, be sure to stop by. I'll be there this Saturday night, and probably again before it's all over! I don't want to tip my hand what I have in the show, so here's something I entered that I think SHOULD have been in the show. :) Thanks Nina for the intensity!

French PHOTO Grand Concours

I've entered the French PHOTO Magazine's annual competition for the last few years, and had a number of images that seemed to be selected as "finalists" but they didn't make it into the print edition. Well, I'm happy to say that this year, I have an image in the magazine. I have a visual confirmation from my European emissary and everything, even though I've not seen an actual copy. The shot above is the one that's printed, and a total of seven were chosen as finalists.

This has been one of my goals for a long time, as I've been a fan of the magazine for years, even before I seriously returned to photography. They bill it as the world's largest photo contest, with over 50,000 entries, which they narrow down to a couple hundred in the magazine.

I'd like to thank the models: Katla, Kelsey, Kat, Artistic Physique, and Poses, as well as Kiera, Rebecca and Jessamyne.

Since I've not seen a copy yet, not sure if anyone else I know is represented in the issue, but I'll try to remember to post an update once a copy is in my hands. Let me know if you see one in the wild anywhere! Salut!

Favor please...

Have entered a portfolio in another contest, and it allows for online voting, so please stop by and have a look and hopefully you'll vote me up for the chance to win cash, fabulous prizes, and opportunities... unlikely, but what the hell? Please check it out!

ON EDIT: Voting has closed, but you can still go see the selection of work. Thanks to all of you who took the time to vote, even those who voted less than 5 stars. :)

Old news...

Someone a few weeks ago asked me about the archive blog, the entries from 2006-2007. I took them offline a while ago for various reasons, but they're back, at least for the time being. There is some good stuff on there, and some stuff I'd do differently now, and a few things I probably wouldn't do at all now, but it's all a process, and looking back and seeing progress is a good source of encouragement as one continues to move forward, right?

I also heard from Teddie here about going up to Chicago once the snow melts and doing some more photos with her. Hard to believe it's been 4 years since our last shoot. But that prompted me to go through some of the old blog entries and I figured why not bring them back? Interesting to see just how much I used to expound on various topics and photos, and how regularly I used to do entries.

There are probably loads of dead links in there, and maybe some missing photos, and a few outdated model names. If you have any updates to share (or prefer that pictures be removed) just leave me a comment on this entry and I'll take care of it. I may go in and tidy up a bit, throw a few things into the memory hole, but then again, I have a lot of other pressing matters at hand, so I may not get around to that.
