I’m working on shooting for a new book about gardening east of the Cascade mountains. Since I live on the west side, it means long road trips and concentrated photography to maximize the return on my time and travel expenses. I try to photograph at least a couple of gardens a day, one in the early morning and one in the evening. That’s the fun and creative part of this business.
When I return home then I have to edit and caption the take, which can require almost as much time as the original photography. At this point in 2007 I’ve already created considerably more new images than I did in all of 2006 or 2005, years when I was not shooting a book or doing a lot of travelling.
Many of these new garden images are online on the Inland Northwest Gardening website. The site will continue to grow as I keep shooting and captioning.
