Our Start the Year in Style special offer is live. All the details are here.
New photographs are being added to the Online Portfolios Section, and specifically to the new Images Created in 2017 section. These consist of images created both in 2016 and in 2017 and published now. As is my habit I publish them under the heading of '2017 Photographs' because I go by the publication date, not the creation date.
The addition of these new photographs is an ongoing process. Expect to see new images coming up at irregular intervals over the next few days or weeks, as my schedule allows.
New Year resolution #2: collect art
I am always surprised at the number of fine art photographers who do not collect art. Art for me is a lifestyle. I love beautiful things and having beautiful things in my life is an essential aspect of who I am. As an artist I know that collecting art is indistinguishable from the act of creating art. Owning art by different artists in different mediums is inspirational. Their vision is expressed and shared in their work. To be able to see it everyday nourishes my soul. I encourage you to collect art, originals or reproductions depending on your budget. Being an artist is not just making art, it is also living with art. No one can create in a vacuum.

New year Resolution #1: Learn how to reach the next step with your photography
It's that time of year again! Over the next few weeks I will be featuring New Year Resolutions to help you reach the next step with your Fine Art Photography. Here is the first one:
The start of a new year is the time to start new resolutions. For photographers this means improving your photography or making your business more profitable if you are selling your images. Regardless of your goals or achievement level, it always means reaching the next step with your work because art is a journey and not a destination.
We all know that success requires efforts and that efforts equals results. The question is which efforts are you going to make this year, in 2017, in regards to reaching the next step with your work?
This can be both a difficult question and a
difficult decision to implement. Our workshops and mentoring programs are designed to help you reach your goals. Take a look at our current workshop openings and see which one best fits your need. We just announced the 2017 Zion Fine Art Photography Summit and the field workshops are starting to sell out. Don't delay if these have your name on it. The best time to make decisions is now.
January 1st, 2017
Natalie and I wish you a glorious Happy New Year! May the New Year bring you health, happiness, beautiful light, fantastic photography and be the best ever. May all your wishes come true.
Happy New Year to all of you from Natalie and I.

We have a total of four different special offers covering the new Lightroom and Photoshop Advanced Adjustment Layers Mastery Workshop, the 2016 Print of the Season limited edition and the Print of the Month Collection.
The 2016 Print of the Season, my annual limited edition print offering, is available. This year's edition is limited to 5 prints, consists of a collector set and comes with an outstanding special offer.
This is a very limited edition (5 prints), far smaller than in 2014 and 2015 (respectively 14 and 15 prints), and I expect it to sell out fast. In fact some of the 5 prints have already been sold to collectors which means there are fewer than 5 still available.
Don't delay! You can see the offer now at this linK:
By the way we still have a few Monument Valley Shadow mugs available but they are going fast.
We have expanded our special offer: the next 10 orders for Mastery Workshops, Fine art Prints, Field Workshops or the 2017 Summit will receive a free Monument Valley Shadow mug. First come first served. This mug is available only during the 2016 Holiday Special offer. It is not for sale and we only have 10. If you have a question (if you want to know if it is still available for example) just email me at email@example.com

The 2016 Print of the Season, my annual limited edition print offering, will be announced shortly. This year's edition will be unique and will come with an outstanding special offer. Stay tuned, you don't want to miss it because this edition will be very very limited, far smaller than in 2014 and 2015, and I expect it to sell out fast.
