After a few busy past few weeks preparing for the gallery show, I expected things to slow down a little, but it just wasn't in the cards. Following the opening, the Dresden Dolls rolled into town, a newspaper got in touch to write a small feature, and contracts were signed for an exciting opportunity.But, without further delay, I'm pleased to announce that the online version of gallery show is now up:
For anyone familiar with my own portfolio or personal favorites, the collection probably won't come as any huge surprise, but I hope you enjoy the selection. The actual show will be up for another month, so for anyone in the city who hasn't seen it yet, I'll be happy to meet up with you if you can make it to Suite 100.
In other news, the newspaper feature on the exhibit ran in the Sunday edition of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and included two images from the show. I sent the newspaper's photo editor a set of six images, but I was happy to see that Fab and Zach made the final cut. Personally, I think it's great that the hometown hero beat out Sting, Morrissey, and others for a little newspaper real estate.
As a final bit of news, I'm pleased to announce my representation through Retna, an independent photo agency that specializes is entertainment images. Retna's clients include nearly all major music media, including MTV, Spin, and Rolling Stone. While the agency covers many aspects of entertainment, one interesting fact is that the company was founded by British music photographer Michael Putland, a man with an impressive roll call of rock legends tucked into his portfolio.
I'm not quite there yet, but I'm working on it. Thanks again to everyone who has shown me support with this little diversion of music photography.
