Currently working on a course for Udemy.com on making the transition from Amateur to Pro Photographer. It is based on our journey from amateur photographers to seeing our work featured in gallery shows, retail stores and online sales.

It's not often you get your work published twice in one year in the same magazine. I'm grateful to have seen my work chosen twice by Oklahoma Today and featured in such a great magazine this year amongst others.

I'm continuing to expand my photography into some new avenues and over the next year our Industrial Iris Studio will be seeing some big changes and we will be launching our The Next Level Photography online subscription-based photography and business of photography training center.

It's an exciting, crazy, creative and fun time ahead as we expand photographically and grow personally.

Ansel Adams once stated:

"Art implies control of reality, for reality itself posses
no sense of the aesthetic. Photography becomes art when certain controls are applied."

It is YOU as the photographer which brings a vision to life by applying your personal aesthetic to your subject and creating art for others in its capture.

Grateful to have my work highlighted again by Oklahoma's premier tourism magazine and one of the most read magazines in the state. Their articles about Oklahoma places, history, eateries and people are entertaining and informative too!

Took this shot of Christine shooting the moon rising over the mountains. Looking forward to seeing the image she captured once she's added her post production magic to it.

Christine and I just got back from our recent trip to the Taos area to shoot the Fall color. Great area to capture color with a variety of landscape types to shoot.

It is one thing to see an image in a book or online and like it. But, what I've learned is that actually seeing or holding an image by a great photographer in-person is a completely different experience. It is one thing to look at an Ansel Adams print in a book - and an entirely different and better experience seeing the real print. In Adams case, when I finally had the opportunity to view his actual prints the experience altered my understanding of photography. The print conveyed what the image in a book or online did not.

I recently went to a gallery in Dallas in the Design District to see David Yarrow's large prints and to learn how to frame images that size. Actually standing in front of the printed image and seeing the paper it was printed on and how it was lighted was more striking than any online or book image of his work that I had seen.

So, I want to encourage you to go out and observe the images in-person of photographers whose work you like. Get into the space where they are displayed and look closely - you are going to find the images speak to you in a way you had not expected and will come away with a new experience to muse about.
