So I climbed on top of the tractor that Montana was driving and he got out and took a few pics. It was nice to have some images of me since I am usually the one behind that camera. Great shot too! What a sweet job getting to go to Johnson's Backyard Garden every week to photograph what I see.
Time to start posting on my blog again in the new year. More farm photos and interviews and studio shots of local artists are on the way. I'm working on a big plan for the next 1-3 years that is going to be amazing. Stay tuned.
There have been some pretty interesting things happening for me so far this year. At the end of January I taught a farm photography class at the United States Lavender Conference. It was challenging in trying to figure out what I could teach in the one hour time frame allotted for my presentation, but also very rewarding to learn about the community and lavender farming itself. I'm excited to continue working with them more and am looking forward to photographing the Blanco Lavender Festival, June 12-14, 2015.
A week ago was the opening for the Peoples Gallery at Austin City Hall where artwork by local artists is chosen to be on display for a whole year. My submission of three artist panoramas was accepted and they are now hanging in a third floor conference room(3002). The prints are of Patryce King, Graham Reynolds, and Maura Grace Ambrose, all of whom I have interviewed on this blog.
Now enjoy some photos from the last few months of 2014. January and February's photos are not far behind along with many new projects and interviews.
