• Mirrorless Minutes 3rd B-Day Episode!….With Special Guest?!?!

    Check out our most recent episode of Mirrorless Minutes where Jamie MacDonald and I celebrate our third birthday of Mirrorless Minutes.  Wow, three years of bringing info and fun to photography.  It has been a pleasure doing the show and I am looking forward to many more years to come.  We also have a very special guest, Jayson Oerrtel from Adobe where we discuss our new collaboration with them and their products.  It’s a great show to watch if you are interested in getting involved in video and want to know where to start.  Plus we give away a full blown Adobe CC package, over $600 value.  Watch and learn how to join.  We know many of you have been asking so we listened and we are out there on iTunes, check it out and subscribe.  Don’t forget to give us a thumbs up if you like it and subscribe to our channel for future episodes.

    (To explain the image above – before every show I have been taking silly photos over the years.  I decided to show them for our birthday.  You have to have fun if you co host a FUN show, right?)

  • “Once I Was Loved By A Girl With Red Hair”

    drawing of edsel

    This is one of those unique stories I have had because of an image I shot. A few years back I was contacted by an artist from Kansas City inquiring about an image I had taken at Old Car City in White, GA.  It was of an old Edsel rusted out and covered with brush.  The artist went on to tell me the story of her father who used to have the same automobile and what it meant to him.  She had asked if I minded letting her do a pastel painting of my image.  I of course obliged.  I have not heard from her for almost 2 years, till late last moth.  She sent me a beautiful picture of her pastel and told me it was accepted into a juried art contest at The Tim Murphy Art Gallery in Merriam, KS.  How exciting to hear the story and the amount of time that had passed.  I love her piece of art she made and of course it’s titled “Once I Was Loved By A Girl With Red Hair”

    My love for photography and the art continues to grow when stories like this come to life.
