With my advertising career in the rear view mirror, I traveled to try my hand at landscape photography for the first time in March of 2018. I became an instant addict.
My next photo adventure took the form of a 7,000 mile, 30-day road trip with my 20-something daughter riding shotgun. Camping mostly in a rooftop tent (and a few hotels because we stunk and needed a hot shower), we visited 11 states, 12 National Parks and photographed 25 sunrises.
My espresso addiction eventually led me to Dunn Brothers Coffee on East 10th Street a few miles from my home in Sioux Falls, SD. I became friends with Emily, one of the shop’s owners. In conversation, I mentioned my passion for photography. Emily was nice enough to extend an offer to exhibit my work in their coffee shop. I accepted and my first public hanging began on February 1, 2019 and will run through the end of the month.
I currently have about 20 framed pieces on the walls of Dunn Bothers. Many of the photos are from the 7000 mile road trip I took with my daughter. I’ll be hosting an artist meet-and-greet on Saturday, February 23 from 8:30 – 10:00am. Stop in, have a coffee and be sure to register to win a signed, framed 22 x 28 print while you’re there.<<
