I am kinda at a loss for words for this post. Thankful for all the adventures and great clients that allow me to explore this world. Honored that Graphis chose these images for the 2017 Photo Annual. It is an incredible visual book - embracing many styles of photography and well worth buying. There is truly stellar work in this years edition. Graphis.com
Wandering the northwestern wheat harvest in Idaho, Oregon and Washington. In early August of this year, I spent a week shooting aerials and landscapes of the wheat harvest - starting in Spokane and driving to the northeastern reaches of Oregon and southwestern Idaho. (During the 1989 harvest, I shot aerials from a Cessna, inspired by George Gerster's aerials of the Palouse)
After a week of cool weather in the Northwest, I headed to a helicopter aerial and architecture shoot in Arizona for a corporate client. (Bloody hot in Tucson and even worse in Phoenix in August.)
Long-term project focused on Southwestern Virginia bluegrass players and guitar builders.
Small exhibit from the project (30 prints – 20×30) will open at the Wayne Henderson School for Appalachian Art in Marion, Virginia on October 21st. Opening is from 6:30 to 8:30.
Proceeds from print sales will fund scholarships to the school. Each print is printed on 20×30 paper and is limited to an edition of ten.
Marion is 45 miles north of Bristol on Interstate 81.
