Portfolio Photography Project

First Community Bank - Fort Collins

I just returned from Denver where I was hired to photograph my daughter's corporate art for a big magazine ad. I photographed her work in a number of places around Denver. In the future, I plan to place a link from this blog to my Portfolio Photography web page when I have added the images that I photographed; however, I have not yet finalized the images. This piece is in a niche in a bank in Fort Collins, Colorado.
Below is a wall mural called "Aqua Rhythms". It was commissioned for the J.W. Marriott Hotel in Cherry Creek in Denver. It covers an entire wall and contains hundreds of stainless steel squares that move with the breeze. Enhancing the wall are sections of exquisitely glass designed in clusters that shimmer in the sun.

So, why am I showing my daughter's work on my blog? Because this is one of the forms of photography that I do. And, because I'm extremely proud of my daugher's work.

Photography at Gina's

"Gitchee Gumee Boathouse"
(Award winning photograph at two art exhibits.)

My photography can be seen at Gina's in downtown Ocean Springs, Mississippi. Gina is a genius at displaying the art, crafts, jewelry and antique furniture that she has available in her store. Going into her place is such a pleasant and enjoyable experience. I love the way she displays "Gitchee Gumee Boathouse" on top of an antique mantle, and the wooden shore birds and bird nest make a perfect setting for the subject of the photography. By the way, the photograph I took of the display is also a landscape photograph that is for sale. Wouldn't it look nice in a wall grouping?

At present, Gina is showcasing eighteen framed works of my photography as well as a few selected matted pieces and note cards in two different sizes. Next time you are in Ocean Springs, be sure to drop by Gina's and browse around at all of her delightful "finds", and check out my photography while you are there. Here are four of my photographs at Gina's behind a setup of jewelry and pottery that I photographed for a an advertisement for her store.
