Art Sale on Fine Art America

A question I often hear from others photographers is “do you ever sell anything on Fine Art America.?” The answer is a resounding yes. Now don’t misunderstand me it’s not like I get a sale a week, or even every month, but I do make enough sale to make it worth the effort. Last night I had an order for a two really nice sized canvas prints. One print is being printed at 72″x48″… that’s 6 feet by 4 feet! The other is only slightly smaller. It always feels good when someone appreciates your art enough to make a purchase and hang it on their wall. If you’d like to see which photos were purchased just follow the links below.

Limited Time Opportunities for Affordable Stretched Canvas Prints!

I’m currently offering three of my prints as stretched canvases at a special price. Two of the prints are available as 16×20″ sized prints. The third is being offered as a smaller 11×14″ wall piece. The larger pieces are selling for $65 each and the smaller canvas sells for $52. Anyone that’s purchased original art work for their home or office will realize these are very reasonable prices. The offer ends at 5:00 PM, October 12, 2013 and is limited to only 10 of each print. Below are links to the individual sale pages for these high quality canvas art prints.

A Nice Surprise in the Mailbox!

This morning I received an email from the folks over at, a very popular nature and wildlife photography forum. For the third time since May 15 one of my images I had posted in their galleries had been selected as an “Editor’s Pick.” There’s no great monetary reward, no trophies or ribbons, but it still feels like an honor to have your work recognized. Considering the volume of work posted in the Naturescapes galleries and the caliber of much of their membership I feel honored, surprised and a bit lucky. Below are the three photos chosen over the last 30 or so days.

Fall Dates: Wild Horse Photography Workshop & Crystal Coast Wild Horse Photo Safari

Wild Horse Workshops and Tours.Just posted, fall dates for the Crystal Coast Wild Horse Photo Safari and for an exciting new Wild Horse Photography Workshop. The Workshop includes classroom instruction, a critique session and visits to the wild horses via a private charter each of the three days. As always lunch is on me for all three days. For the Fall version of the Crystal Coast Photo Safari instead of a morning walking tour on the final day we’ll be using a private charter. Both of these are great opportunities to observe, photograph and learn about the local wild horses. Check out my workshop page for more information.

Neusiok Trail Report

I paid a visit to the Neusiok Trail a couple days ago. Starting at the trailhead at the Pine Cliff Recreation Area, I hiked to the Copperhead Landing camping shelter and back. That’s roughly a 7 mile round trip. I was thrilled to see tha the Forest Service and volunteers such as the Carteret County Wildlife Club had done a wonderful job of clearing the trail from downed trees, rerouting the trail where needed and replacing missing blazes. The Neusiok Trail has been restored to one of the primier outdoor opportunities along the crystal coast.

Canon Announces New Pro DSLR, 1Dx: Big Deal

For the last day or two photo forums and blogs have been all about the newly announced Canon pro camera body, the 1Dx. Honestly I am totally underwhelmed. Why? I’m sure it’s a great camera with revolutionary new technology but lets be honest: It’s the artist not the equipment. Since the so-called “digital revolution” in photography we’ve tended to put too much emphasis on technology and paid too little attention to talent and skill. I think that’s a shame. Early photographers managed to make absolutely amazing images with rudimentary equipment. Today when one views an amazing image the reaction is just as likely to be “you must have a really nice camera/lens” as it is “you have a great sense of composition/a wonderful vision.” Cameras and lenses are simply tools to be used to bring one’s imagination to life.
