The Journey for Knowledge Begins
week fifteen of The Passing Keys by +Jake Johnson  & +Sam Breach 
Apologies for the late posting, I was off the grid on a photographic adventure for the past week so I am almost a week behind in sharing last Monday's image.
Look out for the next installment tomorrow, via +Jake Johnson.

Thank you everyone.
This one was our first in the same physical space collaboration because +Jake Johnson actually took this for me on my camera, I didn't have to use a tripod!

If you are curious about what it takes to turn yourself into a photography pro, I highly recommend +Don Giannatti's Project 52 Pro, a year-long course in the steps you can take to turn your hobby into a successful business. I have been taking this course for 10 weeks now and I am very satisfied with it so far. Don is a wonderful teacher who is extremely generous with his knowledge and who constantly strives to keep current by anticipating change in this fast moving industry. He has a new class starting next month. If you are interested, sign up now. At just $25 a month after an initial $55 registration fee, it's an absolute steal.

Other G+ members on this journey with Don include +Catherine Vibert +Sheila Fredrick-Franzdorf and +Virginia Smith

There's definitely something odd going on, because when I signed up, I didn't get the payment page the first time. I emailed Don about it, and he had me sign up again (and pay, it worked...). Then last week I got another email asking me to sign up a third time! I'm really committed now, eh? Hopefully you're set now, too, +Julie Jamieson, and everything will go smoothly from here on.

The Announcement
My friends Genie & Paul were married last year and at the time I was struggling to think of a gift for them. I'd already saddled them with the most unique Bridal Shower gift I could muster (what happened at the Bridal Shower, stays at the Bridal Shower) and they really are an adventurous, tireless, energetic, brilliant pair. So what to give such a rare couple? Eventually I came up with the idea of the gift of a Conceptual Portrait to be collected at the time of their choosing. A few weeks ago I got the call and after some brainstorming together we came up with this fun Noir solution to making a very special announcement about a pending arrival...

It was a night just like any night, and I'd call her a dame like any dame, but she was my wife. And she had some news to deliver.

"We're going to need to stock up on baby bottles," she said. "And I'm not talking about the kind they serve on the airlines."

Coming In October To A Theatre Near You ...
Several Cries in the Night

  +Genie Gratto +Paul Edmondson - love you two!

I just spent a week in Iceland. It was wonderful! I want to go straight back and replay the week all over again!
I am still on the road visiting family and won't be back home until May when I'll start processing my images more seriously with a larger, callibrated monitor, but in the meantime I threw together this little teaser on my ancient old laptop...

Zack Arias Lighting Education
I am currently on a trip that has several bouts of air travel included. I downloaded +Zack Arias new lighting course onto my ipad  to keep me learning on my journey. Seven hours of classes, beautifully shot, beautifully explained. $75 for 7 hours, if you want to get to grips with lighting, I highly recommend this purchase.
I also noticed that Zack has started a G+ community and he is sharing assignments and critiques which may interest those of us, ehrmm, who are perpetually addicted to assignments...  https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/115905388947878740589

Story
Tagline
Art. Photography. Creativity.
Introduction
I am an English-born digital artist and photographer now living in the San Francisco Bay Area. On G+ I have discovered a magical community who have formed around the art of photography. 

I help run a Community called Brain to Frame that focuses on how to create conceptual photographic imagery all the way from initiating an idea to producing the end result.





Bragging rights
I'm a Brit. We are self deprecating instead.
