Boston Fine Art Photography

It is hard for me to share my work but I’ve had to get past those insecurities given that I’m in a visual industry.  I’ve had to look past my natural instinct to keep things to myself and put myself out there.  Being in the photography business I’ve learned that nothing comes to you, you need to pursue opportunities.  Exhibiting my photographs in a gallery has been a goal.

The first time I was featured in a magazine, it was because the editor read a blog post I wrote.  I’m not a writer and I was pretty terrified of displaying my words in such as public forum but the seeing my words and photograph in a published magazine would never have happened if I didn’t step out of my comfort zone. So, every once in awhile I look for opportunities but have never submitted work.

Our local art association, Belmont Art Association,  had a call for an exhibit called “Arts in Bloom” this spring. Marco flower photography is a personal passion and outlet for me so it seemed like a good fit. All the pieces I entered were accepted.  It was really amazing to see my pieces with other local artists.  My only regret is I didn’t print the pieces bigger. They were dwarfed by the large canvases.

This images, along with a few others, seemed to fit. Out of over 800 entries, one of my photographs was accepted.  Since the gallery  is in Texas I can’t view it but still I am pretty thrilled.
