Cold Water….

About ten days ago I finally had a chance to get together with Mary Beth Tyson for another photo session. The last time was eight years ago, and it was high time to do some more photos. I have been photographing Mary Beth literally for decades and she has always been an incredibly wonderful subject, and a great supporter of my work.

Since then, she has become an awesome professional photographer, and so the idea of working with her again was a bit intimidating, but she immediately put me totally at ease and was even gonzo enough to jump into her freezing pool for some photos.

This is my first color, 8-page MagCloud Digest. I’m pleased with the results. Previously I had only done the b&w version. These little pamphlets are a great way to showcase excerpts of portfolios or to tell visual stories.

The Old Man and The Sea….

m030218

On the way home from going out with Clam Boogie last week – photo by Jeffrey. So glad I have a wetsuit, although I have not really mastered the art of getting in and out of it. Taking it off is more of a struggle than slipping into it. And with the zipper in the back I need somebody to pull it up for me, even with the lanyard on it, I can’t quite manage. Getting the ankle portion over my heels and instep when getting out of it, is the hardest part.

Low Tide…

After too long of a pause, I finally was able to go out into the Gulf with the Clam Boogie crew again, to photograph them while they were planting and harvesting clams. The tide was extremely low. I think it was the morning after a full moon. The water was cold enough so that it was still wet-suite time, and I was sure glad that I had mine on, even though my struggle getting into and out of it always takes on epic proportions.

Above Brett and Jeffrey are winching a bag of clams on board, and below Brett is getting a bag ready to be hauled on board.

On my last trip home I unfortunately again missed getting togethr with Clam Boogie’s crew.  I did stop by the shop and saw their ‘spik’n span’  boat and tumbler parked in front of the shop though.

Spring Break…..


20170118_5281ig2

I just returned from Spring Break with the family. While the weather forecast for the week had looked great, at the last minute it turned cold, too cold for me to want to get out of bed early, put on a wetsuit and go out with the crew. Of course, they had to go out and brave the weather and get the clams in. So this one was taken before the break when the weather had been nice, cool enough to wear a wetsuit in the water, but warm enough to enjoy the morning on the water. Here Jeffrey, Wesley, and Brett are cleaning up the boat before heading back in with their load of clams.

Southern Glossary…..

20170301_5380ig
Southern Glossary is a web-based magazine about Southern art, performance, documentary, and advocacy. A while ago I contributed photos from my The Colors of Clamming portfolio to their Instagram site. Four of them made it into the winter print edition of the magazine which is out now. Ryan Sparks, the editor, and publisher has done a fantastic job of pulling together and editing outstanding material from across the South, producing a coherent magazine, devoid of the ‘low hanging fruit’ content that so often passes as Southern art.

It’s Called Work…


20170118_516ig

Thanks to Wesley, Brett and Jeffrey, I was able to go out with them week before last again. It was a beautiful morning, but cool enough to wear wetsuits. I got a chance to wear mine for the first time in the Gulf, and so was able to get into the water to photograph them as they were harvesting clams.
