The World of the Summer Festival

August 18, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

This summer I am exploring the world of the summer festival and farm market.  I am selling photo art in an assortment of sizes, and at the same time, marketing my new art display easel for the home.  I designed it to either stand flat against the wall -- you can even put furniture in front of it -- or to deploy it for actual use as a working easel in the studio.  My first sale is at the world-class Flint Farmers Market in Flint, Michigan.

Life on the Road

October 13, 2015

For the last couple of years Kaye and I have been living in an RV and traveling the country.  From California to Alaska, the deep south to the east coast and back to Michigan, we are modern gypsies.  There are photos here on the gallery that capture scenes from some of the places we have visited in the last couple of years, so if you see something you would like for your wall or desk, feel free to order prints, wall-hangings or whatever.

It's possible I will be producing a calendar of Michigan Lighthouses next year, and I will make that available here as well.

The winter of 2016 will likely be spent in the tropics and then back to Michigan for the summer.  In the fall, I am planning an extended visit to the Southwest to capture the natural canyons, arches, buttes near Moab, Utah.  I am planning to venture further into night sky photography while there as well.

Thank you for visiting my gallery, and have a great life!

 


I'm Closing the Studio

November 07, 2014

I've been on the road for much of this year following the wind and my dreams - to California for the winter and up to Alaska for the summer, driving the Alaska Highway both ways.  Read about my travels on the travel blog: www.wheretherobertmeetstheroad.com

Now back in Michigan for the fall, we are selling our 20-acre studio and home of more than 40 years.  Kaye and I will be living in the RV for the next couple of years, in the south during the winter and somewhere in Michigan for the summer and fall.

I will continue to post my landmark photos here so that they may be purchased and enjoyed by photo enthusiasts everywhere.  

I will not have a studio but will continue to shoot on location all around the country... and beyond.

Let me know if you need my services and I'll be glad to help if I can.


The Alaska Highway - Yukon Do It!

March 04, 2014

In the summer of 2014 I am planning to travel the Alaska Highway with my wife, Kaye, in our pickup and RV, a journey that few people ever experience.  Follow the adventure on my travel blog:  www.wheretherobertmeetstheroad.com 


The Dominican Culture Photo Journal

May 18, 2013

The Dominican Journal I have finished the 50-page cultural journal of the international shoot in the Dominican Republic.  It is not yet available on Amazon, but you can order a copy by emailing or calling me (see contact info on the home page).  This beautiful hardcover coffee table book contains 150 full-color photos of the fishing communities of El Frances, Las Galeras and Samana, on the eastern peninsula of this charming Caribbean country.  List price for the book is $75.00 and I'm signing each copy (unless you request a direct shipment to your address).

Also, on this website you can order prints of these high resolution National Geographic-like photos suitable for framing.  From the Home page go to People > Dominican Culture to view the gallery and order prints, enlargements, canvas wraps up to 24"x36" -- and other gifts as well.  If you would like digital downloads for personal use, go to People > Dominican Downloads.
