Finally on a plane bound for Paris! WooHoo! Sure takes alot to get outta town...there's nothing like the feeling of sitting in your seat, knowing that - done or undone - there is really nothing more you CAN do. Time to turn it over and catch y'all on the flip side. There WILL be more photos coming from France!!

Oh...and here's one of my companions this trip; the brand spankin' new Fuji XT10 with a wee little 27mm lens I'm trying. Let's see what I can cook up! [runs hands together conspiratorially, giggling gleefully]

And got reversed. I never get that part right!

I've found a mirrorless home.
So here's the thing. At least in my own mind, I've been over here minding my own business, on the mission of finding the mirrorless system that will perform some magic for me. I've had my list of requirements, along with the experience I'm looking to have, the results I want to get. I've been sharing the process on my blog, mostly... and boy, it's been a journey! Here's where I've landed; Fuji. Hands-down.

Then Fuji called. Check it out:  I'm still kind of amazed - and excited!! 
You know I've been trying out the Fuji XT1. This has all been on my own terms, fulfilling my own photographic mission and needs. Then... Fuji called.

Imagination is one of our most powerful reality creators! Giving mine a workout in photography... especially in photo processing... has shifted my own everyday reality in miraculous ways.

When life becomes your best form of art... That's where the cool stuff is, baby!

WooHoo!! +Virtual Photo Walks™ is growing... big time!!
Many of you know I work with and walk for VPW when I can... and hope to do so when I'm in France over the next 3 weeks.

This announcement is GREAT news....

Patient-centered alliance brings nature indoors for those unable to go outdoors
ONTARIO, CANADA & EUREKA, CA – MAY 6, 2015 – ResolutionCare, Virtual Photo Walks and Zoom today announced a partnership agreement that will enable people with serious and life limiting illness to enjoy the freedom to experience places and people they can only dream about.
“As we face disability or even the approach of our death, many people experience a new way of seeing. Offering them Virtual Photo Walks to experience the natural world through this lens is transformative and healing,” said Michael D. Fratkin, MD, Founder/Director at ResolutionCare.
A palliative care organization pioneering alternative models of healthcare delivery, ResolutionCare’s alliance with Virtual Photo Walks and Zoom extends ResolutionCare’s ability to provide patient-centered, compassionate care to people everywhere.
Since 2011, Virtual Photo Walks, a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization, is a charity that harnesses the power of cloud-based videoconferencing technology including Zoom to enable the disabled, infirm and those isolated and hospitalized – young and old – to visit distant places. Using “virtual volunteer guides” equipped with smart phones, the disabled can participate in immersive, real-time experiences of places they will likely never see first- hand. They can interact with each other and their virtual photographer guide in each private videoconference.
“ At Virtual Photo Walks, we walk the walk for those that can’t,” said John Butterill Founder/Director. “Our organization is widely recognized for its unique approach to making a difference in people’s lives.”
ResolutionCare is dedicated to providing and teaching the highest quality of palliative care. The organization has also been harnessing the opportunities provided by Zoom cloud-based videoconferencing technology to care for people with serious illnesses entirely in their home. Team based and person-centered, ResolutionCare supports quality of life, empowered decision making, and self determination for people navigating life’s greatest challenge.
“Zoom is honored to be part of the amazing care and services that organizations like ResolutionCare and Virtual Photo Walks provide to people who are going through difficult challenges and experiences,” said Eric Yuan, CEO. “Through important partnerships like this, we believe that technology can and should be a tool that enhances the connection and closeness between care providers and those who rely on them,” he added.

Happy Stillness... Cisco Grove, California
I go out into nature for the sheer life force of it all,
for the never-the-same-twice thrill
and for the sheer happiness I feel when standing
in the deep, loving stillness of it all.

Twitter much?

I too enjoy nature whenever I can. I always keep the thought that although I'm looking at nature, I am not a spectator but a part of that nature. Maintaining that nature scene, without leaving a human change, is important.

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."

                                                 --- Seth Godin
