Don't miss your chance to take home one of these awesome works!
A note from Rocky...
“ARTIST” – Dare I claim the coveted title? Perhaps “Explorer of the Photographic Arts” would be more appropriate. Indeed I have one foot planted in the photographic processes of the 1700’s and the other in those of the modern day digital realm. I am not the “Historical Purest” some claim to be but rather relish both processes independently and often blend the two. I also refuse to be placed in a limiting category of one or another or to be restricted by a classification of being a Black & White or Color Photographer. My interest runs the full gamete of life. I consider all subjects, methods, and art forms to be celebrations of life which is far too short to be limited in one’s scope. No box type classification for me! I tend to capture subjects that tell a story or ones that display nature’s magnificence. I truly cannot tell you how I choose what I photograph. I simply let it speak to me and work from the knowledge that I must capture the image now as it may not be here when I return. I subscribe to the Professional Photographer’s Guild of America philosophy; I photograph “People, Places and Things”.
