This is what a tired son with a cold and a tired Dad (both with very little sleep) do when left to their own devices. Two wild and crazy guys - with apologies to Steve Martin and Dan Aykroyd.

Shot with my Droid cell phone.

So it wasn't shot today, but this image was "created" today. Shot in Texas at 85mph near Big Bend National Park.

A close up of my 1985 Ibanez Roadstar II electric guitar. An instrument, I hate to say, not played much since the late 80s. It makes a good subject for photography though.

I’ve been on a real minimalist kick in my art as of late. I've got a theory as to why. Read more about that and this image here:

Photographer/Freelance animator/motion graphics designer
Introduction

Emotion.  Mood.  Feelings.  This is what I capture through my photographs.  Whether it is landscapes, architectural elements, still life, or macros - it is a very personal journey as my own fears, triumphs, beliefs, and shortcomings are exposed with each photo.

Much of what I shoot is done spontaneously without preconceived thought or plan.  I let what is around me dictate what is photographed.

And the shooting is only the first step - a jumping off point.  I take the raw images and create what I see in my mind’s eye.  Coaxing out textures present in the shot – sometimes adding them.  Enhancing the contrast of light and dark to create the mood and emotions I felt and feel.  In the end, it’s all about listening to my heart and mind and creating a visual representation of what I feel the moment the shutter is released.

I'm a native Texan currently living on Milwaukee’s East Side with my lovely wife, Jen and son, Sam. 

I have photos (prints, canvas, framed) available for sale on my website scottnorrisphotography.com and at Fine Art America

Here is my current animation reel: http://www.scottnorrisphotography.com/animation
