I know, I know, two posts in one day. No need to duck your head and run inside, the sky isn’t falling and it is not the end of the world; I should be doing paperwork and would prefer not to. Actually, I’ve been pretty busy lately; between working, training, chasing after black rocks that have fallen from the sky, and adopting a new dog (yes…that brings the total up to 3) and haven’t had a chance to do much Backcountry Photography business stuff, so that is what today has been reserved for.

But, anyway, back to the working part. I have been working for Geoff Notkin of Aerolite Meteorites, Stanegate Studios, Meteorite Men, the Logical Lizard, etc, etc, (he’s busier than I am) and a good portion of my job is to shoot photos -- photos of meteorites. That’s right, I am being paid to do two of my favorite things, photography and playing with rocks. I don’t even need to tell you how happy with this turn of events. And not only that, but Geoff frequently uses the photos I’ve taken in his articles. Soooo, let's revisit; I’m getting paid, doing photography, playing with meteorites and building my portfolio. I keep having to refrain myself from telling him I would do the job for free. If you know him, do me a favor and don’t mention that bit.

But, anyway, my previous posts give one perspective of my work, the fine art side, the following links give another. So please check out some of my product photography in the links below. If I may make a recommendation, after you’re done checking out my photos, read the posts, they are entertaining, educational, and well written.

And if you head to the aerolite.org new listings page, the majority of the photos are ones that I took.

  2. Betty, Thanks for the kind words. You have posted the first comment ever. Glad to hear you will continue to visit. I don't know if you are aware, but I have another blog cultofthegreyhound (there's a link under 'favorite links'). The best part of that blog is the photos are of greyhounds.
