I'm grateful to announce I was recently invited to be a guest lecturer at Miami University in Oxford as part of their Visiting Artist Lecture Series. In their words,
"We pull artists working in a diverse range of media and occupation
from business and curating to practicing artist
or teacher to speak to
the students about their individual art practice."
will focus on my TV production house and my photography. I'll
incorporate some video samples as well as artistic captures
portfolio. The session includes a 45 minute lecture followed by a 15
minute question/answer exchange.
Additional info addressed to the students attending the evening includes:
"Visiting artists, lecturers, and educators come to Miami as a part of
our Visiting Artists and Guest Lecture Series as well as for guest
exhibitions and residencies. You will be able to see and hear well-known
contemporary artists. While we feel confident that your education is
enhanced by our guests, we also believe our whole community is
challenged by their visits. As experts in the field bring critical ideas
and work to us, that direct contact inspires us all."
I was thrilled to be offered the opportunity!
My scheduled date is February 28th at 6 PM.
In addition, I am Honored to begin my 11th year collaborating with Beacon Orthopaedics. Jayne Walker at Beacon puts me in charge of their creative ad campaigns, including industrial videos, graphic artwork for billboards, magazine ads, web imagery and brochures. My work can be seen right now on the US Bank Arena Jumbotron as you drive through Downtown Cincinnati on I-71 toward the I-71/I-75 split as well as in the January 2013 issue of Cincinnati Magazine.
I not only captured the photos I used in the ads but I also designed the layout and authored the tag line.

On another note, I captured the sunset last Wednesday (January 16th, 2013) and I could not help but think of "Gone With The Wind".
The crimson color exploded out of nowhere to create an incredibly dramatic farewell to the day…
