The title kind of says it all, doesn’t it?
This year’s Nudes in November, a part of the ArtHop™ experience at the Sorensen Studio in Fresno, California, was my third time participating in that juried exhibition. In fact, the 2013 Nudes in November was the first time I had entered a juried competition.
It therefore also constitutes my third Nudes in November win, and my eighth win across all juried competitions. (The only time I’ve ever entered a juried exhibition where I did not win anything at all was in Chris Sorensen’s birthday show a couple months ago, where (so far as I know) there were no awards other than “Best of Show,” which went, as expected, to a sculptor.)

I have been remiss about blogging lately. A bit too busy with my law practice – which, at the moment, is how I fund my life – so unless and until I sell more prints on a regular basis, that’s just how it goes.
Anyway, some of you may know that last year, I won First Place in Photography during ArtHop™ at the Sorensen Studio’s “Nudes in November” 2013 show.
Since then, I have won other awards, as well. The latest of these – bringing me full circle for the year – is another win for “Nudes in November” 2014 show, which I present above, as the featured image of this post. [Read more…]
This past week, in addition to the fact that I had my own exhibit at Fresno’s downtown Citibank, I again entered a juried competition at the Sorensen Studio.
Since I already wrote about the works I entered at the Sorensen, I won’t rehash that here; this post is really just to announce that I won Third Place in Photography for my daytime shot of the Centerville Fruit Stand.
If you’re in Fresno, the show at the Sorensen will still be going on during the month of October. Pop on in and check out not just my work, but the great work of several others artists! (The Best of Show is an incredible sculpted piece!)
Well, I have a couple of model shoots this weekend, so not really time to say much more here today. I have a few pictures I want to write about, but that’s going to have to wait until later. With the new studio, plus my regular business, there’s a lot happening right now. Keeping up is a challenge, but fun.
Check back later for more!
This website, I think, is about to undergo another makeover. If you’ve paid any attention to me — and my infrequent blogging probably does not encourage that — you know that I keep re-designing the website. There are reasons for that which go beyond “I don’t seem to be able to find something I really like.”
I’ve been trying to transition from being, as one photography vendor once called me, “an enthusiast,” to being more of a professional photographer. (The vendor said that as a compliment. I had referred to myself as an “amateur” in terms of my skill level at that time. The vendor stated that I was far from an amateur, but since I was only selling my prints “in addition to” my non-photography day-job, he used “enthusiast” to describe me.)
As I make this transition, I’m submitting some of my work to juried competitions.
My latest such effort resulted in the black-and-white version of my “Calm Beneath the Storm” winning second place in the Landscapes category at the Sorensen Studio. [Read more…]
Yep, that’s me — the “award-winning photographer” part; not the models in any of the images! [Read more…]
