Shining Brightly... Truckee, CA
I'm so excited that in a few short days, I'll be in France! I'm heading over to lead my Finding Your Artistic Voice retreat in Cannes. It goes from Oct. 3-8, but I'm going early to settle in and do some scouting.

2017 dates coming soon!

I'm not taking Phantom Bob - but I AM bringing my Fujifilm trusty X-T2 and X-Pro2, my travel Really Right Stuff tripod and iPhone clamp. Cause you KNOW I'll want to do some video and (god willing on the wifi connections) some Facebook LIVE!

I'll try and give some warning on the FB LIVE thing when I can, but knowing me, more than likely I'll be pretty spontaneous with the whole thing.

So... the game is afoot! Fall's gonna be FUN.

This image? Glad you asked. It's from a most gorgeous spring this year.

Specs:
Fujifilm X-T2, XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR lens
ISO 500, f/5.6. 1/50 sec

Starstruck... Lake Tahoe, CA
I giggle now when I remember wondering if Fujifilm cameras were good for landscape photography. Now I can't imagine shooting with anything else!

This was an incredible sunset I saw coming a couple of days out. I followed the cloud pattern all day... then ended up on the opposite side of the lake than I thought I would. Hey, ya goes where the shot is!

I didn't yet have a case for my drone Bob at that point, so I didn't have that with me. Dangit! But I do now... so I can cover these magical moments in more ways than you can shake a stick at!

In fact, I'm discovering all kinds of ways that a bird in the air can help photography on the ground SO much! I'm outlining a blog post on that very thing as we speak!

Hope you enjoy... I sure did!

Warm Moon on a Hot Night... Truckee, CA
Fanciful fun with layers 'n layers 'n textures 'n stuff.

It's a brood of a mood, eh?

Taken with my Fujifilm X-Pro2 and 50-140mm lens on that last rad full moon night. [Cue wolf howl SFX]

First images and video from my Phantom 4 quadcopter! (we're required to name it... mine's Bob.)

I never thought I'd find myself doing this... but thanks to DJI and being chosen for their Master Photographer program, I'm discovering a whole new world. It's amaaaaazing. I hope to create something wonder out of this! Meanwhile... it's begun:

FALL COLORS! This image was from a few years ago, during one of the most incredible fall color seasons I can recall. :D But I'm reminded of it as I look around up here in Truckee today - in the beginning of September - and see the colors already changing! Some of the baby aspens are already golden yellow... 😬

I usually think in terms of (roughly) the 3rd week of October for the action to be in full bloom... but I dunno this year. Might just be early, it's a different kind of year on SO many levels. All I can say is; this ought to be interesting! (and maybe I won't miss ALL the action by being in France for October!)

Got out for some air today and ended up IN the air! (OK, Bob did.) I love the swirls and designs in nature. Seeing them from this perspective just makes my soul happy. It's a never-ending revelation of the epic kind.

I'm happy to report I get vertigo much less than I did in the beginning. Yay!

I know you couldn't go on another moment without know that.

👍😉😄❤️

Casting Shadows: Truckee, CA

In my dreams when I fly, it's often at about this height. It's such a miracle to me that I can now photograph the incredible light, shadows and the staggeringly beautiful world that they define from here! I've dreamed about it, imagined it really hard, wanted to do it myself but didn't have the right kind of wings to pull it off. Besides I looked stupid flapping my arms! ha.

Now I can fly. And it's a wondrous thing.
I wrote about my first steps with a DJI Phantom 4 Quadcopter named Bob right here: http://karenhutton.com/Bob.

Thank you Randy Jay Braun and Stacy Weskerna Garlington for making me a part of this fantastic ride! And big thanks to my dear friends Barry Blanchard and Laurie Rubin for helping me get (and keep) this bird-called-Bob in the air!

I'm out for an all-day date with Bob. That's Bob sitting on my quadcopter case, which is what I used to practice precision landings today. He performed like a champ. He even took a picture of me by Lake Tahoe!

We're still in the honeymoon phase, but so far I really like Bob. 🦄📷❤️😘😜

Photo taken with my Phantom 4, processed in Snapseed on my iPhone 6s Plus.

Onward!

PS. New to this narrative? Bob's my Phantom 4 quadcopter. 😉 You'll be hearing more from us.

Sigh Like Vapor: Truckee, CA
We haven't had many epic sunsets lately... but I've managed to be here for a few that were! This is a 4-shot handheld pano taken near home with my new all-time favorite camera - the Fujifilm X-T2. [contented sigh] I also used my trusty 16-55mm lens that evening. Oh and...

NEWSFLASH: I've got a blog post coming out tomorrow with first photos and video from my DJI​ Phantom 4. I've been quietly learning, building my skills and confidence... and marveling at the new frontier it presents! I'll announce it here of course... and you'll find it at www.karenhutton.com/blog

This winter... watch out, baby!! Fujifilm X-T2 and +DJI  Phantom 4. My sweet, sweet dance partners of choice for glorious snow season. I'm practicing now!

Epicness abounding...

Climbing in Red... Truckee, CA
I sometimes stop just to watch the climbers up on Donner Summit. There are a couple of places you can just pull over and have a gander; this is one of them. The prettiest time to photograph them is late afternoon; you can see why.

I'm fascinated by these folks... they're driven so very differently than me! I especially love listening to climbers critique other climbers on the wall. I learn really interested stuff I'll never, ever use. ;)

Story
Tagline
Photography, Voiceovers, Purveyer of Awesomeness
Introduction
Welcome to my world!
For those wanting to know more, I am a Photographer, Speaker, Writer, Voiceover ArtistHost, Author, Educator, Voice
and I was lucky enough to be invited to be one of The Inception Masters at TheArcanum.com. 

I find myself blessed with an amazing group of followers, racking up millions on social media; and tens of BILLIONS in views of my photographic work.
My voice has been heard around the world in commercials, apps (including Stuck on Earth), tutorials and television.  I am is Professional Fujifilm X-Photographer and I've been featured at Google, Photo Plus Expo and on Stuck in Customs, TWiP, Macphun Software, Forbes.com, The Grid, Rick Sammon’s DPE Podcast.
I live in the Sierra Nevada mountains of California. But you can also find me at KarenHutton.com.

Overall, my world is a big ball of photographic, voiceover and content creational fun. 
Think of it as; Lenses and Light - meet Microphones, Words and Sound. 

They play really well together. 
They each share a particular point of view. Tell stories. Express a unique 'signature'. A Voice. What's not to love?

Photography is why I breathe, baby. That's lifelong, undying love and passion. It's all about: Connection. Inspiration. Story. Humor. And Beauty. Who couldn't do with more beauty in the world? I love photographers because they wear their heart on their sleeve and it lives in their work. Their breathtaking world view. Their intensely personal story... the one that we just HAVE to tell or our hearts will simply burst from the withholding of it. 

The way I see it, our individual signature - our point of view or 'voice' - connects us. Is our heart speaking, through everything we do. After all, as my mother used to say "You can't hide who you really are." Wise woman.


To that end, I wrote an eBook called 10 Steps To Finding Your Voice that lays out 10 simple concepts that can help just about anyone with a camera discover what they love, harness it and create images that sing in THEIR voice, loud and clear. 

So, welcome to my world.

Over here we love to capture, shoot, chase, wait for, plan for and generally live in (and for) - light.

And with a little light, don't you know... anything is possible.
