I’ll get to see my Southern California friends at two different dressage shows in back-to-back weekends this month.
This weekend (Friday and Saturday) I’ll be the photographer at the inaugural Transitions Dressage show, held at the Southern California Equestrian Center in Temecula (known as Galway Downs by most of us). Manager Karen Center has put together some great prizes, including coolers, cash and even a copy of my book, A Collection of Favorite Images. It looks like it will be a packed schedule both days. I’ve heard a rumor that Karen’s baking her famous cookies, which is a good reason all by itself to come out to the show! I’ll have copies of the book on hand, and if you buy them I’ll sign them! Weather permitting (it sounds strange to say that here) I’ll have some of my paintings on display, too, including some that you’ve seen here on the blog.
Next weekend I’m photographing the San Diego Chapter show at Showpark in Del Mar. We’re working on scheduling a book signing there. I love shooting at Showpark, the light is always pretty, even when it’s overcast – and it being June, that might happen!
Now, I know you’ve got questions about the Digital Magic picture above. Like, “How do I get one like that of my horse?” Well, all you have to do is ask! I can create an infinite variety of textural effects on your photos… People tell me that they fill that gap between a “normal” handsome photo and a Commissioned Painting. Added effects start at $95.00 – and that’s a one time fee per image, after which you can order a variety of sizes and products. Talk to me about starting your own Digital Magic artwork!
