Project Reveal: The ELENI Lamp

One of the great things about being a photographer is that you get to create and share images that mean something to you. This is true for all people, not just the ones that make a living shooting photos. As a Commercial Photographer, however, there are projects that you never get to share and also … [Read more...]

Breaking Through

I am standing at the edge of a cliff, staring into the abyss. This side is a barren wasteland with a diminishing sense of comfort, a comfort induced by the perceived safety of the familiar. I can't see what is on the other side, but I know it has to be better than where I am standing. If it is even … [Read more...]

Projects: Kitchen Art, Take Two

A few months ago I posted an Image Project called Kitchen Art. It was a summary of the photo session that I had done to produce some images of fruits and vegetables for our kitchen.

Rants: Software Support

In the spirit of disclosure I should also mention that Jodi is my wife, and The Simply Inspired Home is also my home. [galleryview … [Read more...]

Projects: Kitchen Art

My wife presented me with a challenge. "I want to have a lot of art in the Kitchen (post renovation), and I want you to do it". It didn't take long to decide that the subjects would be the very elements that make up a meal. The idea of shooting raw meat was unappealing so I passed and went to the … [Read more...]

Projects: Giving #Youthworkers an Identity

I have had the privilege on two occasions to shoot for my friend, @proyouthworker and his team [1]. This project was a win-win from the start. First of all I have a lot of respect for the work they do with the youth in our area. Anyone willing to invest that much of themselves into someone else is a … [Read more...]
