Sample Portfolio Page

Since I have some down time at home over winter I have decided that I will finally take a stab at getting a portfolio page up. All the cool kids are doing it so why not me,.......right? Right! Anyway, here is my first attempt. It is through a site called Artists Wanted.org and this page is free but is very limited. For example I can only have a home page and the one gallery page and on both an annoying advertisement footer always pops up. They do have it set up so you can pay them and get unlimited, advertisement free pages and images, but I'm still looking around for the right provider. I do however like this design. Very clean, modern, and simple - with enough design features to keep me interested. Yet I do want to have my own domain name without any extra "stuff" on the end. This site always leaves the "artistswanted" on the end of the URL. But its a good start for now. Let me know what you think of the site and the work I posted. Thanks!

Perspectives - Gallery On-Line

I just made an on-line version of the Perspectives Gallery. This virtual gallery is for those of you who are too far away to see the gallery in person or if you just want to see it again. I hope you enjoy!

PDN - Photo Contest

Here is another photo contest that I entered and you can vote on this one too! Just follow the link and search for my photo by either typing my name in the search bar of just scrolling through the other entries. This contest was introduced to me by one of my photo professors and it could really help me expand my art as well as my viewership. Man, I am on a roll. Two photo contests entered in the same week! Maybe I will search for some more........nah...next year. Thanks for voting!

Exposure - Photo Contest

I entered another photo competition - and this one you can vote on!!!!!!! So if you like my work and want to help me win some sweet prizes then follow the link to my competition page and hit the "vote" button at the top. I submitted three of my bridge photos this time but I might submit some more in the future. There was a fee attached to this competition so I was economic with my entries. And, yes, I know I need to get some more work so I can submit something different next time but I can't help it that I'm so attached to these photos. Anyway, thanks guys and have a great day, evening, night, or whenever you read this! (don't forget to vote!)

Good Times With Old Friends

December is here and that means that its time to enjoy the holidays with friends and family. Since I am home now enjoying my last long SCAD winter break I've decided that I need to reconnect with some old friends while I have the time. One such friend is Quinn. I have known him for several years and our sisters are the same age and have been best friends for several years. I had tried to see Quinn this summer but we kept missing one another, but I saw that he had a show coming up with the new band he is in and I decided to drop on by. The show was really good and I had a lot of fun. The above photo shows the whole band entitled Robin R├╝tenberg & Friends (Quinn-bass, Summer-drums, Robin-vocals, guitar, mandolin, tambourine, Naarah-cello, keys). The photo is heavily manipulated since it was shot is such a low light situation but I think it turned out quite nice. Its the first time I have ever done a panorama at a concert. The band just finished recording their first EP and they were able to raise the funds for it on kickstarter.com. I can't wait to hear it when they release it.
