News from the East & West

August 31, 2010

Humble apologies, my friends sometimes too much time goes by in between my posts. Between shooting some personal, some commercial work life takes over and well before you know it its been over a couple weeks!

I just wanted to say a big thanks to Nicole Pasulka who did a fantastic Interview of my work titled In the flow. A screen grab of the interview is below. Also I was just selected as a Critical Mass 2010 finalist. Critical Mass is a competition put on by Photolucida which is a contemporary photo organization is based in Portland, Oregon. Almost 600 entries this year pre screened by a hundred plus jurors lead to a finalist list of 175 which I was humbly included in. Those who continue on in the top 175 Finalists will have their work seen, and voted on, by over 200 jurors which will lead to a Top 50 list regarded as highly prestigious to be a part of. I am in the final round so wish me luck folks! At least 20 of these 175 people who got selected I personally know, love and think off highly! So it’s a stiff competition to say the least.

Also I was honored to be invited by Ann Pallesen, the all too charming Gallery Director of PCNW, (Photographic Centre North West) for PhotoLust which is a photography fun raiser auction with a fantastic line up of artists! Keith Carter, Matthew Pillsbury, Daniel Shea, Joni Sternbach and Jock Sturges are in the show to name a random few… here is a link to the list of all invited artists for this show. If you live in Seattle, show some love for for the contemporary photo scene on October 2nd which is also incidentally the birth date of the great Mahatma Gandhi.

Selected for Best Of ASMP 2010

July 15, 2010

Recently there was a Nationwide call to enter Best Of ASMP 2010. ASMP is American Society of Media Photographers, an organization that I have been active with for a few years now. I entered this contest this year and got selected! The judges just selected 20 projects as Best of ASMP 2010. The finalists represent a wide span of subject matter, including both personal and commissioned imagery. Fifteen different ASMP chapters and most membership categories were represented in this selection. The Best of ASMP issue of the Bulletin is scheduled for early September and will include much more about the winners.

Congratulations in particular to my friends Shawn Henry and Jamey Stillings, Jamey and I recently met at Review Santa Fe as well!
