About This Website

This blog is intended to showcase my pictures or those of other photographers who have moved beyond the pretty picture and for whom photography is more than entertainment - photography that aims at being true, not at being beautiful because what is true is most often beautiful..

>>>> Comments, commentary and lively discussions, re: my writings or any topic germane to the medium and its apparatus, are vigorously encouraged.

All pictures ~ • click to embiggenThere is little more satisfying in the art and craft of picturing making than when a thematic body of work comes together as a cohesive entity. Granted, selling an office suite worth of my pictures ranks right up there, but, when you come right down to it, successful selling is most often predicated upon portfolio presentations - a kind of horse-before-the-cart thing.

So, as mentioned previously, one of my somewhat pressing objectives is to organize and edit my various bodies of work - currently numbering 9 very different individual bodies of work - into individual portfolios. The point of that exercise is to get those portfolios out to a number of galleries with the hope of having a few exhibits of my work. And, that objective met, to make some sales.

Wow ... these look terrific.

I note the front and back cover include a person in the image, whereas the images within the book don't?

I'm very impressed with these pictures.

Nice collection of images. It appears you have set it up as a PD book... is it for sale?

I don't believe I signed a model release to be on front cover, but we can avoid litigation if I receive royalties from sales.

A beautiful body of work Mark and truly amazing when it comes to color as an element of design.
