That’s how it seems I’ve been working lately: day and night, night and day. This Thursday, October 2, 2014, from 5 p.m. until at least 7 p.m., I have my first ArtHop™ exhibition at the downtown Citibank at Kern & M Streets in Fresno. If you’re in the area, stop by! I’ll be there. Meanwhile, three…
The subtitle for my website, which I think only shows up on mobile devices, is “The Photographic Art of Rick Horowitz.” There’s a reason I call it that, rather than “The Photography of Rick Horowitz.” Perhaps it’s because I live in an area of the country that — “landscape-wise” — doesn’t tickle my sense of…
Just so you know, I don’t only shoot agricultural images when I shoot landscapes. Last weekend, I went to Berkeley for an Evidence seminar — my “regular” job is as a criminal defense attorney — and naturally I took along all my camera equipment.
Bunny Chafowitz and I were making plans to go out at 4 a.m. this morning to try to catch some sunrise “agscapes.” Unfortunately, my day job got in the way of being able to adequately scout out locations. Since I had no idea where we might go to look for agscapes that might look good under…
Stayed home all weekend, playing around with Photoshop.
Yeah, sorry. I couldn’t come up with a better title. One of the things about my photographic work is that I’m not really totally wanting to “just do photography.” In almost all of the images that I capture, I want to add something of an element of painting, or compositing, or otherwise manipulating the image….
Well, actually, there’s no such thing as old River Park in Fresno. There’s just River Park. I called it “Old” River Park because of the treatment I gave to the image — about which I’ll say more below.
When I was in high school, I was fortunate to be able to take photography at a school that had a good-sized darkroom, with areas for processing color as well as black-and-white film and prints. To this day, I still remember the acrid smell and the way everything inside the room was — when not…
My friend and mentor, attorney David Mugridge, called me a couple weeks ago to say that his son James was graduating from San Joaquin College of Law today.
Is it real? Or is it Memorex a figurine in an antique shop in Oldtown Clovis, California?
Awhile back, I was given the opportunity to shoot The Mofo Party Band at Audie’s Olympic.
Sometimes, a photographer just has to play around a little.
Chris Pierce is a good friend of mine. Recently, the band in which he plays bass — the Gray Horse — was playing at a local nightspot. When I arrived to watch, I learned that a photographer they were expecting had not yet shown up, so I offered to go get my camera.
“Home Alone” was followed by “Home Alone 2.” Since my last post was a play off of that movie and I wanted to post the same beautiful woman again, I’d be just as…uh…”creative” with my title.
This ain’t Macaulay Culkin we’re talkin’ ’bout here; this is Kaulin. Take a look and I’m sure you’ll agree: if she’s Home Alone, it’s by choice and it’s everyone’s disappointment.
First, apologies to the IE folks who haven’t been able to view the site. As noted elsewhere, I had to make significant code changes to the original theme. In the process, I left a “- ->” off the end of one line, which apparently confounded Internet Explorer. I’ve used Firefox for so long that I…
Once in awhile, I get a wild hair and want to test what I’m able to do. Erin’s impromptu portrait is an example.
