It’s been a non-stop month of October for me so far, with not as much time for the blog as I’d like, but hopefully that will change soon. In the meantime, I just wanted to share some of what I’ve been up to…
After spending 5 days in Maine teaching a workshop (more on that soon), I returned to begin a few commercial installation projects that I’ve been working towards since the summer, and it’s great to see them come to life.
Four of my images sized 30 x 45 (print size) were permanently installed in NY Prebyterian Hospital on Oct 14th in a new medical wing. Leader Associates Art Consulting, one of the top corporate art consultants in the area, handled the framing and installation, and I am scheduled to visit this week to take some photos and see the finished result – can’t wait and I’ll be sure to share some photos and more info here asap.
I’ve also installed a 54″ x 125″ mural of “Mighty Storm King” at the new Bank SQ Coffee House here in my hometown of Beacon NY. I printed it on three separate panels, then tiled them together on-site to make the final image. If you are local, be sure to visit and enjoy organic coffee from local roasters, as well as some of my other prints which will be on display until the holiday season.
Finally, about 15 dedicated workshop participants joined me and Thom Johnson in cold and wet weather yesterday for the final Bannerman Castle workshop of the year. With temperatures in the mid 40’s and windy, rainy conditions, no one expected anything special. But as so often happens, with about 20 min to sunset, the light made a dramatic appearance, and suddenly the uncomfortable conditions became a memory. Moral of the story is, if you’re not there to get lucky, you’ll never get lucky – and luck is a big part of outdoor photography.
