Every so often, the time comes for an artist to take stock of their...well, in the case of a photographer, quite literally: Stock. During the time that Jenifer and I have been shooting together first as best friends and then as husband and wife we have compiled a collection of images that tops more than 125,000. Personally, I have shot more than that during the 10 years or so since I graduated from Barry University.
The process of looking toward the future of Versatile Light Studio and my personal work began with a look back over the past 10 years. Generally, I knew what I would find in my personal archive - after all I shot them all! What I didn't expect among the well-defined bodies of work from Paris, work-related and thesis images, was such a visceral reaction to the personal history that this archive represents. Additionally, as I had hoped when I started the process of editing through the first 54,000 I found several bodies of work that needed to be revived from a long stored hard drive and rescued from the dust bin of fading memories.
Over the next several months, I hope to publish much of this work into portfolios, stock galleries (possibly for sale or license) and most importantly to bring the images back to life.
Looking forward to presenting more to come....
