Not-so-still life with octopus and pitcher.
I am totally fascinated by octopus (octopuses/octopi/octopuses).
I also kinda/really/totally like this photography thing. So, voila.

That is funny! I assume it tried to escape on its own ?
They are hysterical to watch when they escape.

This might have been a meditative, Hallmark-esque, life-lessony post about the beauty that emerges from adversity but today it's a cautionary tale about a photographer who lost his balance while photographing a tiny flower in a herd of cacti, fell flat on top of it all, smooshing the flower and impaling himself with hundreds of really sharp barbs that all got infected and will likely result in a slow and painful death. Enjoy your days.

At moments like this, we need another word for the space in between that isn't so negative.

Floral karaoke.
Whether or not you like to karaoke, if you had to (with or without a crowd) what would be your go-to song?

Story
Tagline
Passionate, award-winning photographer. Advertising Chief Creative Officer, too.
Introduction

I grew up on the creative side of the advertising world and had the pleasure of working with hundreds of clients around the world; telling their unique stories in very unique ways. Along the way, I've had the pleasure of working with an incredible number of talented photographers, directors, cinematographers and imagemakers. I became envious of their art and craft. At first, I saw it as a means of reducing my stress-filled life. As a Chief Creative Officer at the world's largest Advertising Agency Network, I needed a distraction. So I bought a camera. And then another. And another. My new hobby and daily "creative exercise regimen" quickly turned into a joy-filled and all consuming passion.

I love talking to all sorts of people and seem to have a knack for getting them to open up and share themselves despite the intrusion and intimidation that a serious-looking camera often represents.

I like seeking out and sharing things I find interesting. Beautiful things. Powerful things. Poignant things.

I am incredibly patient and am often rewarded with moments of magic.

I also enjoy taking something ordinary and making it something well beyond that. (To paraphrase Ansel Adams: "…making pictures, not just taking them.") Illustration and painting are other passions and I love creating unique photocompositions.

One thing led to another and now I'm published, in private collections and winning awards.

Happiness.

So now I have two jobs that I absolutely love. 

Alan Shapiro; Executive-Level Creative Guy and Very Passionate Photographer.
