The Art of Travel Photography

I was thrilled to have my photograph titled “Zion in the Snow” selected for exhibition in “The Art of Travel Photography" at the PhotoPace Galleryin Middlebury, Vermont.

The photograph was one of forty chosen by Juror Kurt Mutchler, Senior Editor for Science at National Geographic Magazine. It was a big job for Mr. Mutchler as over 900 photographs were submitted for consideration.

“As a photo editor at National Geographic magazine I gravitate to photographs that capture a ‘decisive moment’ and are free of contrivance. I also look for landscapes that talk to me like good portraits—capturing the personality of the scene with beautiful light, perfect composition and a mood that beckons me there. There were many photographers that had a nice mix of work and it was difficult to just pick one. This was especially true when they had a nice scene, portrait or lovely landscape. Which do you choose? I thoroughly enjoyed my vicarious journey through everyone’s eyes. To me, you are all winners!”, stated Mr. Mutchler.

In addition to being in the gallery exhibition, my photograph will also be available for viewing on the PhotoPlace Gallery website as well as reproduced in a full-color catalog available for purchase from Blurb Books.

The exhibition will be on view at the gallery from June 2nd through July 3rd. An artist's reception will be held on Friday, June 13th from 5:30-7 pm; unfortunately I am not able to attend.

Make sure you have a look at the many outstanding photographs that were selected for the exhibition here.
