NY Workshop scene


Pretty typical photo essay workshop scene in my New York loft. Students gather for a book critique. We do our BURN book designs here. This is my last NY workshop for 2016 and runs September 25-October 1…link in my profile here IG. One gratis scholarship to be given to a an emerging photographer in need of support. My team and I give tough love to my students. Honest critique. Outside guests ( like this time Sarah Leen Dir of Photography NatGeo) joins us. Other pros will pop in and out. Daily critique with each student photographer out on her or his personal journey. Final student show in front of a select New York photo world audience is a focus of the class. Taking each photographer to their personal next level. I think we have either 2 or 3 spaces left in a class max 15. I do a skype or FaceTime portfolio interview with each applicant. Join us or just come and see our final show. Cheers 🎈 Photo by Frank Overton Brown III @obxhomepage

I’ve seen shoes dangling from power lines all over the world just as here. It must mean something, yet I know not. In some countries there are dozens of shoe pairs, laces tied, then thrown and looped around a power line. Old shoes not needed and thrown just for fun? Some rite of passage? Let me know if you know of any special reason for this international ritual.



One of my fave models is Michelle and my daughter-in-law to be at the end of this month. Lucky Bryan. She’s also the super good mom of my 2 yr old granddaughter Lyla who fills this IG feed often. Michelle is a producer. She’s produced many of my pro shoots, runs my photo workshops ( next one NYC end of September), runs 3 yoga studios, her own workshops for creative women, and will now in the next couple of months produce and video edit my online tutorial. Whew! That’s a lot of stuff. Oh yea she’s also part of the BurnMagazine team and manages our online store. MOSTLY Michelle is my friend. My confidante. Tries to protect me from myself!! Tries. Thanks for everything Michelle. You are the bestest!!🎈

IG Stories


Photo this morning by @obxhomepage Frank Brown as morning breaks with a full rainbow . We are heading south to check the waves. Good surf day. I’m just going along for the ride. Follow me on Instagram Stories.




Thanks Courtney from Minnesota for letting me make a picture of you this afternoon. Courtney is here with her family for a week and I randomly met her at sunset and made her part of my IG Stories. A one click portrait. I think IG Stories is terrific. I had just started using Snapchat but for me staying on one platform makes more sense. So check out my stories right here. #obx #nagshead



It rained sporadically this afternoon. Rain in summer always has some romantic connotations. For sure the tree frogs think just like me. The heavy rains bring on their heaviest mating time. The males singing can sparkle the night. This shot through my kitchen window w my phone camera.
