Teardrop Carousel... Santa Cruz, California
Step right up with your eyes and ears;
it's the kaleidoscope of delicious and tears. 
That kisses your senses so softly and then,
is off to visit the next world again.

This one was recently on my blog:
I think it's becoming one of my faves, in the flora department!

The Blond In the Middle... found in the sea of bass.
I've always loved this image... a blond bass in a sea of brunettes. 
Like a 40's jazz singer surrounded by her dancing boys on the big stage.(or Lady Gaga.)
The fellas swoop in, do a little spin, lift her up as he hits the final note of the moody tune.)
The crowd goes wild.
(This is right before they lift her up, BTW. In case you wondered.)
When my husband went bass shopping - he visited a dealer with about 50 basses in one large room. You could walk up and down the aisles, trying anything from a brand new one from China to a 50 year old from Romania... and a bunch in between. They each had their own sound, voice and vibe. It was marvelous! The blond in the middle had a $25k price tag. Not cheap, not easy - and who could fault her for that? But my, she was gorrrrrgeous.

Might Rain... Truckee, California
Got out for some air with my Fuji XT1, just casual-like. 
Nice moments happen when you do that sometimes. 
This was one of them. :D

Sent it to my iPhone, dipped it in Snapseed and Mextures... and liked it.

5 Lessons Learned From the Grace of Landscapes
Photography's spiritual for me. Always has been.
Recently, I got to thinking about some of the most awesome things I've learned about myself and life whilst out there with a camera in my hands... so today I decided to post the top 5.

They're things I remind myself all the time... and am helped in the reminding any time I'm out where nature whispers softly in my ear.  
Landscape photography at its finest is like being rocked gently in the cradle of creation. It's spiritual. Here are 5 life lessons I've learned.

Mirrorless is the new frontier, no doubt about it. 
If you're wanting to dive in now, you really have to decide what YOU need. Forget what everyone is saying. All the systems are so good... it just boils down to YOU.

Personally... my ideal set up isn't actually made yet. But I need to lighten my load, for a whole host of reasons, which I've been talking about on my blog. The first 3 chapters of this story involved Sony. The first two are here: and here:  The 3rd is below. 

I'm entering this conversation in the spirit of discovery. Being a consumer, trying to sort it all out. I decided to forget what I thought I knew, open my mind to new knowledge, figure out my own personal bottom line and dig in. 

Yes, I began with Sony, but my bottom line: it just isn't going to work for me right now. It's awesome gear, but like I say... you have to decide what will float your boat, where you can compromise and where you can't. Because you WILL have to compromise, no matter where you go. Mirrorless is still the wild west and it's changing fast!

I'm on to my next system now. I'll post about that here soon... although it IS on my blog now, if you're interested in this stuff. We have great conversations going on over there! 
Here goes: my quest to find a light, mirrorless camera system that'll take my creativity & art where I want it to. Today: Sony & why it went back.

Photography, Voiceovers, Purveyer of Awesomeness

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. 
Don't look so surprised! 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. 

I produce and host a show called: THE CHAT with Karen Hutton: Sound byte-sized insights from some of the coolest people on the planet!

In it, I chat with creatives; successful artists, photographers, musicians, singers, creative business folks... all of whom are uniquely engaged in "living life as an artist: or better yet, living their life as if it were their art." 

Voiceover is global. Over the years, hundreds of commercials, narrations and announcements for planes, trains, automobiles, television and radio… and for fabulous apps like MotionX-GPS Drive. (Cougar anyone?)  Or apps on your iPad helping you to dream, adventure and plan your next travels, like Stuck on Earth, created by Trey Ratcliff. I'm the voice of the guide over there.

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.

My first eBook is called I/WE: Scenes From the Big Picture. It's geared toward that childlike desire we all have to soak in pretty pictures and a good (very short) story.

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. 


"The industrial age is ending, and a new one is beginning. It produces art instead of stuff and it rewards gracefulness.

...the future belongs to the breathtaking."
