During the first couple of months of the year I usually take a slower pace than usual in the studio, and work on longer term type pieces. It's a nice time of year for reflection, and plan for the coming months. We are starting to see some early signs of spring.
One of my astro photos of a lunar halo is published in the March edition of Sky and Telescope Magazine, and the March/April edition of SkyNews Magazine on news stands now.
I'm pleased to have several photographs included in a new book on contemporary photography, PhotoViz, by the Berlin based publisher, Gestalten. From the book description, "PhotoViz explores the intersection of photography, infographics, and data visualization. Combining cutting-edge technologies and classic photographic techniques enables us to tell stories and visualize information more powerfully and compactly than ever."
One of my photographs, "Moths to Light" was featured in National Geographic Magazine. Prints of this photograph are available through the National Geographic Print Store
. National Geographic also used one of my firefly photographs recently in one of their News Watch
items. Another of my firefly photos appears at the end of this engaging TED Talk
by biologist, Sara Lewis.
