Since its inception in 2003, 'Mark Raymond Mason Fine Art Photography' has been an online portfolio of my photography and ideas about art. A lot has changed, but the site remains free to access and unsponsored – a celebration of art, our world, and creative thinking.
This new photo is one of many I've made recently exploring the tiny dew drops and water bubbles I see everywhere in the Spring and Fall. The focus wasn't purposeful, but I love seeing this kind of trend in a batch of recent work. More photos are on the way soon as I gradually process images from a January trip to Costa Rica ... stay tuned!
My website is now HD compatible, for devices with capable technology. Browsing with a regular computer will be the same as before, but High Definition phones, tablets and computers will now load HD versions of photographs and images, meaning my web galleries will look sharper and more detailed than ever before! Enjoy!
The Fierro Canyon Gallery show alongside owner Christopher Saxman opened with great success on Friday evening, with over 100 in attendance. A couple of photographs sold right away on opening night. I wasn't able to make it down for the opening, but I am watching with interest from afar! Check out www.fierrocanyongallery.com for more information and to plan your visit.
On Friday, October 26, 2012, from 3:00 to 9:00pm, a new abstract photography show will open at the Fierro Canyon Gallery, near Silver City, NM. I will be showing alongside Christopher Saxman, the talented owner and director of this excellent new space. The address is 4 Hermosa St, Hanover, NM. If you're in the area, (or even if you're not!) drop by and check it out!
I've been very busy lately, but I've added another photo from a January trip to California. The photo really captures the anarchy of the area, and the hidden tragedy that has befallen many of the isolated, dried out areas in the Hollywood state.
MarkRaymondMason.com is constantly evolving. New photographs, photo tutorials, and creative ideas about photography will be added, with the goal of making 'Mark Raymond Mason, Fine Art Photography' one of the freshest and most interesting photography websites around.
New photography tutorials are always in the works. I will try to author a collection that speaks to the aspiring fine art photographer, fostering creativity, style, and personal growth. The new tutorials will cover unusual topics and provide a novel take on art, photography and life as an artist.
Of course, new photography will be added from time to time. I expect my new work to continue to evolve, as I explore black and white photography, photos of the human form, and other areas outside of my comfort zone. Keep an eye out for some new and exciting photography!
