Trekking in Nepal – summer 2017

The opportunity to do a 10-day trek in Nepal was never something I imagined I would be able to do but this summer I did just that. The trek was very different from the treks I have seen images from—much hotter, going up and up on stairs, through hot forests filled with leeches, and rain. All of which makes for a great trek if you are ready for it. I expected tree-less expanses of rock, rock and more rock. I did get fantastic views of the Annapurna region of Nepal, saw a couple monkeys, lots of water buffalo, hike in the rain and under the hot sun, and sweated my way up the Nepali elevators (trails made of stone steps that just go straight up the hillside).

Just a few images from the trek.

One more dance photo session

One last photo session for the term with the dancer Sami Corbitt. This time done in a large athletic facility with the dancer leaping onto the high jump pads. The lighting in the building is for the most part dreadful but on this day we got lucky with just the right light.

Rainy Day Photoshoot in the Dance Studio

The best way I can think of spending a rainy day could be spending in a dance studio with a dancer and soft light. Here are some results of a recent shoot in the dance studio at Principia College with the dancer Maddi Demaree along with my students from my photo course Spring 2017.

NIght Photo Shoot

Took my class out to a local field at night for a photo shoot. Here are some of the results.

Painting in Greece

Just returned from a 10 week adventure through parts of Greece and Italy. I took along some gouache and this is the result of some of that work. No better place I can think of for inspiration—everything around you is great subject matter.

Creating graphics on the road

Here is a small sample of work created while traveling through Greece during September and October 2016. I have visited a quite a few inspiring museums and sites—just about everything in Greece and everywhere you look you can find inspiration.
