Life Is Light Photography

My newest project is a show called: THE CHAT with Karen Hutton: Sound byte-sized insights from some of the coolest people on the planet!
In it, I chat with creatives; successful artists, photographers, musicians, singers, creative business folks... all of whom are uniquely engaged in "living life as an artist: or better yet, living their life as if it were their art." A new episode every Monday, to kick off your week with a little inspiration. 
Overall, my world is a big ball of photographic, voiceover and content creational fun. Think of it as; Lenses and Light - meet Microphones, Words and Sound. Don't look so surprised! They play really well together. They each share a particular point of view. Tell stories. Express a unique 'signature'. A Voice. What's not to love?
Photography is why I breathe, baby. That's lifelong, undying love and passion. It's all about: Connection. Inspiration. Story. Humor. And Beauty. Who couldn't do with more beauty in the world? I lo

About 12 weeks ago Tall Trees Towering... Felton, California
"Listen to the trees, the mists, the spaces in between..." her mother would say
They won't lie; they will show you a world more beautiful than you imagined possible.
She thought of her mother often. 
---------------------------------------------------
TGIF Everybody!
Now, let's all breeeeeeathe... aaahhhhh, that's goooood.

About 10 weeks ago Road Trip! Washington State
The open roads beckoning, 
mountains towering above...
at last, a place she truly belonged.
----------------------------------------
After an incredibly eventful morning filming a future episode of The Chat, +Laurie Rubin and I finally hit the road toward the next chapter of our great Washington adventure! 

The thing that strikes me here (especially being in the middle of a drought in California) is how everything is so blue, green - and at this time of year, topped off to beautiful perfection with snowcaps. It kept making me want to whip up a smoothie everywhere I looked! haha!

What can I say? I had to stop the car, jump out and capture a moment of it to share with y'all!

About 3 weeks ago Grand... Zion National Park, Utah
He had an attitude that gave the impression of grandeur,
but was really just a reaction to low self esteem.
It meant he acted large and important, but inside felt small and empty.
Which was sad, since everyone could see what he couldn't: 
That his was a magnificent soul.
--------------------------------------------------
I want to revisit Zion National Park! 
We drove through last fall when the parks had closed due to government incompetence... and were treated to brilliant, inspiring skies and amazing light. I guess they couldn't close THAT down. ;)

About 6 weeks ago Summer in the City... New York City
She put the 'steam' in 'punk'
and was known to make grown men cry.
(but only when they needed to.)
She loved sunsets on a gritty street
and lives, newly re-imagined.
She was unapologetic, possessed a particular glow all her own and had the ability to seduce the unsuspecting.
Which she often did.
Unapologetically.

Unmoveable stones,
Unrelenting tides, 
The ebb and flow of forever. 
----------------------------------
Tomorrow, +Laurie Rubin and I take off for our great Washington adventure! We'll be seeing rain forests, waterfalls, coastal beauty, city life, mountains... the works!! 

I'll also be doing a Chat with someone amaaaaazing... plus we're planning on creating a veritable cornucopia of content while we're there. So I guess for now I'll leave you with... stay tuned!!

About 12 weeks ago Ce Monde Bleu... Lake Tahoe, California
When the light was right, cerulean blue came out to play.
It truly was all about the light. 
As usual. 
----------------------------------
Gots a new blog post today: http://bit.ly/1rpBdQN. It's about mobile photography, or at least my experiences with it of late. Plus a bunch o' pics from the various mobile devices I've had fun checking out: The MotoX, Nexus 5 with Google Camera App, Verizon's HTC One - and of course my own personal iPhone5. 

I was comparing the pics from them - then thought it might be fun to share some of those highlights and impressions. 

This photo is NOT from a mobile device! Unless you could my Canon 5DIII as one. I mean, I DO carry it around so I guess that qualifies! haha! 

It always blows my mind the colors you can see in Lake Tahoe under certain conditions. Bleu, bleu and more bleu... with a little vert mixed in! I mean, green. :D

About 11 weeks ago Idyll... Santa Cruz, California

New photo and news on my blog today: http://bit.ly/1iVDC0j!

When the only camera at hand is your mobile, 
it's the best camera in the world! 
Such was the case a while ago, when this happened. 
iPhone 5 to the rescue. ;))

Sometimes the greatest adventure of all
is the one you embark upon solo.

Sail on, my fellow adventurers!

About 5 days ago Heaven and Earth... Canyonlands, Utah
He said he'd move heaven and earth for her.
And then he did.
---------------------------------------------------
My projects right now are keeping me at home... but that doesn't stop me from soaring out over the mountains and deserts of places I've been... and will be again... through my images. 

The plan: to create my world in such a way that I can go out and soar in person WAY more often, so I can bring even more of it into my heart - and yours.
