I've always had a very diverse photography career and sometimes it all seemed like two much. But in this economy I have really appreciated it. Versatility is demanded in this economy. This month in particular has reminded me of how diverse my career has been.

In my commercial still photography-this year I shot 6 of nine winners of the 2011 New Mexico AIA Design Awards and I just completed my first commercial architectural video.

Millenium Park in Chicago was just named one of the top 100 outdoor spaces in the US and Canada. I was one of 4 directors of videography who shot the faces for the Juame Plenza Crown Fountain. I did this as a side job while teaching photography in the summers at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

A new show of civil rights documentary photography opened in Salt Lake-I did the scans for photographer Maria Varelas contributions.

In terms of my b&w personal photography, this year I've had a one person show at a city owned gallery, a permanent installation of twelve images at a city owned conference room, a group show in San Francisco, and two more groups shows in New Mexico both opening on the 22nd, one at the Albuquerque Museum and the other at the New Mexico History Museum.

And just to top it all off, I've had two great interviews come out this month. One in El Palacio about my images in the Contemplative Landscape exhibit at the New Mexico History Museum and one on my commercial work on a popular blog.

Anyone trying to make a living out of photography? Spread your net widely.

Civil Rights exhibit in Salt Lake

This should be well worth seeing. I had a little to do with it-I did the scans for photographer Maria Varela.

I have not visited all these spaces. I'll have to put many of them on my Bucket List. Actually i'm prejudiced as I have some involvement in the Chicago's Millenium Park. I was one of four directors of videography who shot the nearly 1000 faces for Juame Plensa's Crown Fountain.

Why use T/S lenses for perspective correction instead of PS??

Here is the gospel from Rodenstock. It shows why you should use T/S lenses or a view camera rather than doing it in PhotoShop. It applies equally well with DSLR T/S lenses as it does with view camera movements.Perspective Correction in camera
