January Updates...

Hello to everyone! Are you all sticking steadfastly to your New Year's Resolutions?? ;)

Well, now that it's just beyond mid-January, I thought I'd update you all on the latest news and happenings related to myself, and Bottle Bell Photography so far in '08.

So, without further adieu, and in no particular order, here are the updates:

*Gallery News- My first solo gallery show began this last Wednesday, the 16th, at Corazon (boutique & gallery) in Minneapolis, MN. I will be showing at their Lake Street location for 6 weeks, and then I will begin showing at their Washington Avenue location immediately following for another 6 weeks. If you find yourself in Minneapolis, and are interested in checking out the show, I invite you all to do so. In all, I am displaying 32 pieces from six of my collections. It's very rewarding and exciting to finally be able to share some of my artistic vision with the public.

*Private Collection- Now that my gallery show is well under way, I am happy to be able to get back to what I love most - Photography. I will begin working with models again starting this Thursday for my ongoing collection: The Vintage Indigo. Though it's still bitterly cold outside, I have a few great models lined up, and they're ready to shoot some great conceptual pieces with me. Look for more portraiture very soon on here, and in my Flickr galleries.

*Publications- My work is still up for publication in JPG Magazine, and is still open for voting. As mentioned in a previous post, I submitted my piece: "The Falling Chamber" to their "Noir" theme. If you have a moment and have not yet done so, please consider voting. Your support always means a great deal to me, and I am truly humbled by the amount of support I have received thus far. There are still 19 days left to cast your vote.

*Also, I am very pleased to announce that the online magazine: All Things Girl has asked my permission to publish two of my photos: "Plea" and "Is And Always Will Be" for their May/June issue. The pieces will appear, along with a short biography and photo in their arts section under the theme: Sacrifice, on their website.

*Travel News- I am planning a trip through the Midwest from February 14-17th, so I can capture more of the abandoned structures I came across while on my Christmas Vacation late last year. This time, I am dedicating my entire trip to finding these old treasures. I was so bummed when I had to drive past most of these great buildings in December, because of my tight schedule over the holidays.

*Client Sessions- I will begin, again, (now that my gallery obligations have settled down a bit) to take bookings for client sessions. If you are interested in working with me, please email: info@bottlebellphotography.com
or visit my website, Bottle Bell Photography for session details and pricing.

*Website News- And...lastly, my website is a bit outdated due to how busy I've been lately. Please be patient as I upload the latest portfolio pieces in the coming days, and revamp the look and functionality of the site. In the meantime, you can find more updated galleries of my work, here.

Wow, that was a mouthful, and hopefully not too long.

As always, thanks for checking in, and as soon as I get back out into the field, I promise to post my work. It's been a bit long, but it'll be worth the wait. I Promise.
