Gone Fishing

We finally had some decent weather for a change and I spent the weekend doing two things that I love the most, learning and teaching. I stopped by Austin on my way to the Hill Country for a “head shot” (portrait) workshop by Kirk Tuck. It was a great class and I enjoyed every minute of it. Then I headed out to Pedernales Falls State Park to provide some one-on-one landscape coaching. Thankfully, the weather Saturday evening and Sunday morning was exceptional and we got some great shots of the falls and surrounding area. All in all, a very enjoyable weekend.

I’ve decided to spread my photographic wings a little in 2010 and spend some more time shooting people or at least including people in my landscape & nature work more often. This family was very accommodating after I offered some help in launching them from shore. Never seen a kayak this full of gear before. Must be gear lust affects more than just photographers these days.

  1. Great photo Jeff. I can hardly shoot a photo without someone or something man made in it. It is a mental thing from something one of my art teachers told me way back when.
    My belief is that in some cases it gives a sense of accessibility to the landscape or place if there is something or someone in the image. Good direction to explore but please don’t neglect the other style of work you do it is always spectacular and shows your feelings for that Hill Country.

    • Ray,

      Don’t worry. I’ll never stop shooting landscapes of the Hill Country every chance I get but it’s time to spread my artistic wings a bit. I might even post some commercial work if I can get a property release.


  2. Adding people gives scale and a sense of place. Yes, stock agencies love photos with people in them. They also want model releases or you can only use this for editorial purposes.

    Fisherman are as much into gear as any photography nut…er, I mean hobbyist. 🙂
