New (ish) Venture


So I am considering—no, that’s not quite accurate—I have decided to open my galleries as a commercial venture. I’ve been toying with this for a long time. Many reasons have kept me from doing it, not least among them is lack of time. But. I have thousands of photographs from a long career and I’m making new ones. Time, perhaps, to do something with them other than let them molder after my passing. or before it.

With that in mind, stay tuned.  I will make announcement when that happens. I intend offering images as art, not go back into commercial shooting. There will be options. In the meantime, a new example of where I’m at with it.



No, this does not mean I’m giving up writing. Never that. I’m working on new short stories. But I do have work in other media and this might be a good time to make it available. As I said, I will announce the particulars here when things are up and running.

Meantime, enjoy.


P.S.  Drop a line and let me know if you think this is a good or not so good idea. I’d appreciate hearing from you.

Take care

  1. Mark, That is a great idea. I look at the one example I hvae of your photography with pleasure every day, and would probably not resist buying more. Do you plan a physical location (best idea) or an on line catalog and sales center (okay idea)? I still would like to see an exhibition of your work here in Columbia, but Stephens has eliminated its gallery and though there are plenty of other venues, I don’t know enough about them to make a recommendation.
    Otherwise, I trust all is well with you. I have been thinking of initiating a conversation about Leckie’s Provenance–which I read with regretful feelings of disappointment. Could it be a much earlier effort that she decided to release after the success of the trilogy? By comparison, it seems like apprentice work.
    All best, Tom

    1. For now it’s all going to be online. I don’t have the space in a day to do the work a physical location would require. I’d sending this up as a test balloon. Exhibitions would be great, but the last one I did kind of fizzled. I hope to do better.
