A series of day-to-night transformation type photos.
My thematic intention is to depict serene but hauntingly beautiful blackout-like scenes that tap into the emotional experiences of many who can appreciate how such moments can offer a shared closeness with one another.

I am super-excited (well chuffed if you will) to announce that I am represented by the Rotella Gallery in their SOHO New York and Bellevue, Washington locations!
It is truly a humbling experience and honour to be among a pantheon of well-known and amazing artists that admire like Michael Levin, Joel Tjintjelaar, Art Wolfe and several others. It has been in the making for quite awhile now and it has been very challenging to keep this a secret to say the least. The photos you see on my website (link below) will be part of my solo exhibition among others (details forthcoming for those that want to stop by and say hello). Each photo tells a visual story that has an experiential and personal inception and journey for me. They are exclusive, limited edition fine art archival prints only available through the gallery. I have been fortunate to have had some galleries inquiring about my work over the years but I wanted a great fit and a gallery that truly appreciates my work and photographic artistry.
I want to thank all of you for your continued support. It has meant a lot to me to know that you appreciate my work. I have met several people along my journey that have become close friends. I am truly blessed to have them in my life.It looks like it's going to be a New York kind of year! :)
If you would also like to join me in Toronto (May 27th-29th) with my good friend and photographer extraordinaire Marc Koegel or New York City (October 14th-16th, 2016) for a totally new photography experience, please also click on the link below.

Calatrava's "Oculus" and the prominent Freedom Tower at the WTC
MCM Muted Colour Metallics Photography.
Upon exploring the city last week, I had the opportunity to really study the matrix of the WTC from many angles. This particular vantage point triggered the story of Bellerophon and Pegasus and the title for this photograph. The building on the left offered a nice reflection to offer an extension of the wing of the Oculus to play around with symmetry-assymetry in the overall composition. For those interested, no selections or plugins were used in this photo just straight ol' basic Photoshop stuff (nothing wrong with any tools of course to fulfill your vision) : )

Out of New York Photography Conference
(Please see below for links and concepts)
Why did I choose to make three different photographs of the same "wanderful seen"? For me, photographic vision is not a uniform style or stepwise formula but a psychological exploration and artistic experimentation of the many realities that we create when making a photograph. It is a way of "imprinting" who you are and who you will be in every photograph in your evolution as an artist. I will be exploring my "Vision Drawing" core principles and more in my New York workshops during the first "Out of New York" (OONY16) conference in October and exploring the many iconic sites of this great city! You can sign up now! See links below.

Vsion Drawing - A New Psychology of Photography: http://www.silverzenphotography.com/2014/02/22/vision-drawing-oramagraphy-a-new-psychology-of-photography-6-core-principles/
"Wanderful Seen" - A play on words for a 'Wonderful Scene". It refers to the act of wandering around until you find the right angle, moment, or location for a photograph and the beauty, emotion and imagination of creating a photograph based on the artist's vision :)
"Imprinting" as a concept in Psychology but also Photography: "In psychology and ethology, imprinting is any kind of phase-sensitive learning (learning occurring at a particular age or a particular life stage) that is rapid and apparently independent of the consequences of behavior." (Wikipedia). That is what we do with our art: we put it out into the world and allow the synergy between artist and viewers to take over.
It's also a title of another NYC photo of mine.

I am guided by an “eclectic aesthetic” or "eclectic aesthetic fine art" (EAFA) philosophy of photography that evokes a passionate and sometimes provocative discourse on multiple subjects and styles of photography which inevitably leads the photographer to discover their own intersection on the continuum between the ordinary and the extraordinary psychological and emotional impact of their art and the meta-creative impressions between the photographer's realized vision in their art and the observer of the photographer's art. As much as it is a practical philosophy, it is also a guiding principle of how to educate the eye to envision the world with a different purpose – to find the complexity of beauty where you least expect it, in the simplest of moments, and to capture it instinctually or cogently with a personal and meaningful vision as an artist. It is more challenging to the artist to find something almost raw or esoteric about a subject as if discovering the subject’s arcanum, its secret wisdom, than to shoot for posterity at the expense of timelessness. Photography offers me a sense of therapeutic mindfulness and forgetfulness at the same time. I often focus intensely on a subject and forget the world around me.
