2013 Year in Review

So 2013 was a pretty good year, with quite a few highlights. I didn't always blog about everything, so I thought I'd do a year in review post- Just hitting the highlights of 2013 - even though it's already March in 2014(better late then never?) So let's get started with the highlight of the highlights!

Africa Trip

Burchell's Zebra - Kruger National Park

From mid-May to the first part of June I was able to spend some time in Africa. The itinerary included a week in Kruger National Park(a favorite place since I was a kid), Hluhluwe–Umfolozi Game Reserve in Kwa-Zulu Natal(first time ever), and St Lucia in Kwa-Zulu Natal(also my first time there).

Indian Ocean - St Lucia, South Africa

Quite a bit of time was spent photographing while in South Africa. Though I did spend time catching up with friends and family as well. I still haven't gotten through all of my photographs yet, but quite a few are up on my website:

Other Highlights

Some of the other highlights of 2013 was being honored with the title of North Dakota Artist of the Year by TOSCA magazine.
Being chosen as Grand Forks Mayor's Choice Artist 
Having four of my photographs featured in the book - Art for the Contemporary Home

Gallery Shows

I started off 2013 having never put together a gallery show and ended the year having done 4. Which turned out to be too much for the year(they all happened in the second half of the year). Included is City Hall Solo exhibition, Daktyl Gallery group show, and Dakota Harvest Bakery.

Cell phone captures of three different shows

Well, that's about it as far as I can think of... Hope you all had a great 2013 and that your 2014 is even better!

Anti-poaching message from Jackie Chan

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted!  Life has been busy, but I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things for this year.  Here's a video I recently found with Jackie Chan and a rhino named Spike. Watch it and share it!

New Work and Free Shipping - Fine Art Landscape Photography

Last Summer I spent a couple of days in St Lucia, South Africa. It's on the coast and the Indian Ocean. There was lovely beaches, and our first day was quite overcast and this photograph was taken just minutes before it started to rain. 

The almost-starting-to-rain conditions made for gorgeous scenery. Maybe I'm a little weird but this kind of weather makes gleeful when it comes to photography! Like a kid in a candy shop! The reflections on the wet sand were fantastic, the sky was dark and full of interest, and the waves were fiercely powerful. Made for a great time shooting!

This print is now available in my Society 6 store and for this week only there's free shipping on almost everything in my store! Use this link to get the free shipping:

The free shipping does exclude Framed Art Prints, Stretched Canvases and Throw Pillows with insert but everything else is free shipping.
