Cutting Horse Show

May 22, 2019  •  Leave a Comment
I opened the car door to the rhythmic but muffled sounds of loping hooves, the smell of horses and cattle with a twinge of leather hung in the air with the fine dust and the sense of contentment settled over me. I was anxious because I didn't know what to expect and I really wanted to do a good job. Tenatively making my way towards the center of th...

Delivering framed prints to clients is such a joy. Seeing the glow of happiness in their eyes as they look at their images ready to hang on the wall is so much fun. By the time we reach this point with clients we are usually personal friends and it is an easy going fun time. Somewhere in there the client-turned-friend usually is talking about their...

What helps you be creative?

May 01, 2019  •  Leave a Comment
What fuels your fire? Ignites your flame? Gets your creative juices flowing? Is it talking with a certain person? Going to a certain location? Having some quite time? Or simply watcing a class online. Maybe all the above. For me, I find I am most a peace and able to focus more on my creative side when I am with nature. Being in nature tends to re...

"A snapshot keeps the moment from running away" I can't express the sentiments I feel when I look at these pictures. Being a photographer, its our job to preserve these moments. The capture of time to experience the same emotions at the split second of a flash and the click of a shutter. These photos remind me time and again as I look at t...
