Special thank you to model Miley Bradway for doing a great job at the recent #CreatingYourVision photography workshop at Art on the Trails at Beals Preserve in Southborough, Massachusetts.
“O, to be sure, we laugh less and play less and wear uncomfortable disguises like adults, but beneath the costume is the child we always are, whose needs are simple, whose daily life is still best described by fairy tales.”
From a recent Creating Your Vision photography workshop with model Elle interacting with the art of Marie Picard Craig.

“The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four people is suffering from a mental illness. Look at your 3 best friends. If they're ok, then it's you.”

Musician photography is a passion. Knowing the countless hours of practicing alone, the feelings of frustration, doubt and hope is particularly interesting to me. I recently had the opportunity to photograph the wildly talented Ryan Padula who is simply a delight to work with. Ryan comes from a musical family and often plays jazz with his brothers, mom and dad. Polite, intelligent, witty and having a quiet sense of determination, Ryan is a beacon of musical hope for the future of music.

Dropping of “Tully” for the Blanche Ames National Juried Exhibition. David Lang had encouraged me to submit to this show a few years ago. It does not escape me that this photograph was taken in the morning light of his beloved home in Ireland, “Tully”.
Thanks David for your continued inspiration~ — with David A Lang at Ames Mansion.
Six models, fairies and nature nymphs
Spectacular outdoor sculptures along a nature trail
and YOU and your creativity!
This Sat, Aug 10, 11-1pm
Open to all~
This uniquely experiential event is 41st in a series of wonderful workshops. Together we are growing a community of supportive and talented artists of all skill levels who connect through photography and a love of art.
Creating Your Vision involves unique models interacting with the art of a unique space, often world-class art galleries.
For this August event, we are thrilled to be returning to the Art on the Trails Sculptural Exhibit in Southboro, MA. with several ballet models, fairies and nature nymphs interacting along the trails with the natural surrounding and of course, the art. This is a popular workshop with plenty of photogenic opportunities at every turn!
"The Art on the Trails theme this year is Marking Territory. While animals naturally mark their territory in the wild, human animals have their own ways of marking territory, emotionally and spatially."
Participants will be instructed on composition, lighting, technical details and creating your own vision in a storytelling way. This event is open to all regardless of ability or camera gear. Even a camera phone is fine.
Free instructional handouts and refreshments provided.
There will also be plenty of helpful guidance and suggestions to enhance your passion for artful photography.
Feel free to invite your friends, family or share this invite!

Your creativity and open mind

Five is the number of the human being.
The number five symbolizes the four limbs and the head that controls the limbs.
There are five senses: sight – hearing – taste – smell – touch.
Five is the number of balance.
Five symbolizes man, health and love.
It combines the female number two with the male number three. Five is the number of marriage.
The Pythagoreans thought of five as “hieros gamos”, the marriage between heaven and earth.
