Skim boarder

Skim boarder waits for the right swell. Surfers own the beach down here, yet skim boarders epitomize the summer scene. I’ve never seen a skimmer in winter. Skimmers are also younger, 10-15 I’m guessing. Summer is almost gone. The next full moon will find this boy back in math class . All the more reason to study the waves , study which one will let you spin turn twist and ride back to shore. Yea the next one just might be it . #fujigfx


My good neighbor Frank Brown glorifies an outer banks sunrise. Frank and his best buddy O.B. are out on the beach for each sunrise and he photographs 365 of them per year @obxhomepage. Frank is a preacher, teacher, surfer, and real estate pitch man. Frank is assisting me on my current commission to document my “home”. Sweet deal. August is probably the least get work done month of the year in the northern hemisphere. Yet I never stop shooting, albeit never far from my front porch during the dog days of summer.

Earl Grey (Gordo) often loves to jump to the hood of my truck when I pull in the drive. He seems to know when I’ve been to the supermarket and perhaps have brought him something special like fresh tuna. There is no look of disappointment quite like his if I haven’t brought a treat , so I usually try to please. 8-1-17 #fujifilmxt2

Last NY loft workshop

Join me for one last historic photo workshop blast in my New York loft. Yes alas the Kibbutz loft is over. Home of many artists including at one time or another 8 Magnum photographers. So this building definitely has the vibes. Yet goodbye it is. So if you’ve ever thought about immersing yourself in one of my New York workshops, now is the time. The only time. See link in profile. This class is for advanced photographers. Portfolio review and FaceTime interview required. For almost all of my workshops the last few years I’m working and teaching and teaching and working. To the advantage of my students. When I am in the middle of a project it’s just a really good time for serious photographers to learn first hand. I’m shooting right up til the end the Kibbutz for a potential book. We’ve got plenty of wall space to get your best day by day work up and I’ll do the same. This might be the end of the loft, yet the beginning for emerging photographers to launch. I bring in the best in the biz, both editors and photographers, to join in daily critique. Final show and fiesta? Ha! What do you think? We will roll out in style of course. See link in my IG profile .

Sunset selfie

Sunset selfie. Outer Banks NC . 7-22-17. For the next few weeks I am shooting on commission at home. Not necessarily on my front porch as here, yet a general daily diary of life around me. It’s hot it’s summer and to be lazy is my instinct. Certainly as can’t move ride my bike go swimming as I ever get. As close to sliding back to boyhood as I can be. I fell in love with photography not far from here at age 12 and basically shot only around home then. I had no choice at 12, and dreamed of far away shores. Now when I am far away, I dream of being here. I think both dreams are an integral part of my work. Giving others the key to a creative life is one of the things I do with gusto. We did two full on workshops here this spring. Just the perfect mood. Great students. This fall I’ll get off this porch and head for my last New York workshop. Well the last in the famed Kibbutz. Also home for the last 12 years and also a book subject I’m shooting. So any serious photographer who feels a workshop experience with me would advance their career or work, would I think be wise to think about the last blast in the Kibbutz. Anyone who knows about or has been to one of my NYC classes knows this final hurrah will be an event to remember. All of my ex students are of course invited to the final show and fiesta which will be well super special. Stay tuned IG TODAY for an announcement about New York. #fujixt2
