    You're welcome. Sorry I was MIA for so long, following my surgery.

  • Posted on 03/20/2014 by minuitstorm   
    I hope you're doing well and recovering hun!

  • Posted on 03/17/2014 by photosmith   
    I'll pull back the curtain -- it was a 10 minute shoot, following a thunderstorm, just before sunset, in Rahway, NJ… after Zerotia, Chris Day and Mark Harris had sat down to be interviewed for my Bare Conversation art nude oral history project.

  • Posted on 09/10/2013 by TylerRexan   
    Love your profile photo right now!!!

  • Posted on 03/17/2014 by photosmith   
    Thanks! It was a brief bit of UrbExing/goofing around with Erica Jay, last summer.

  • Posted on 08/20/2013 by TwistedAngel108   
    love the "making art is serious business" profile pic!

  • Posted on 03/17/2014 by photosmith   
    Thanks! Erica Jay is one of my favorite people ever -- we always spend too much time talking and not enough time photographing.

    The phrase in the image is sort of my mantra -- I try to avoid pretention at all costs. :)

  • Posted on 08/17/2013 by Teva   
    Thank you for the friend request! Amazing work. How often do you travel or would I have to come to you? Hope you are having a fantastic weekend ♥

  • Posted on 08/17/2013 by photosmith   
    Aw, shucks. Thanks.

    I've got a young family and work at a university, so I won't be traveling much, during the academic year… but I can hook you up with some amazing photographers in NC, if you come up.

  • Posted on 08/18/2013 by Teva   
    :)

    I understand. Are weekends the best time for you then? I may have to plan a road trip at some point, I looked it up and it's about a 6 hour drive.

  • Posted on 08/19/2013 by photosmith   
    Generally speaking, yes. :)

  • Posted on 08/19/2013 by Teva   
    Cool :)

  • Posted on 03/17/2014 by photosmith   
    How are things in Georgia?

  • Posted on 03/18/2014 by Teva   
    Pretty good, the weather is still up and down. It was warming up but now it's cold and rainy. How are things in NC?

  • Posted on 08/17/2013 by photosmith   
    Aw, shucks, thank you! I'm really glad you liked it -- I'd been agonizing over the process of whittling an impromptu shoot of over 120 photos (including some incredible infrared images) down to just 20 for the Zivity set (and probably driving her nuts in the process) for more than a month.

  • Posted on 08/19/2013 by photosmith   
    :)

  • Posted on 08/17/2013 by TheHowling67   
    Thanks for adding me as a friend =) Your Squall Line set with Zerotia is awesome... every single pic so stunning =D the published b/w set is a killer... the spirit of the images comes across much more intense in b/w than from the bonus color set (though it's a great bonus feature to be able to compare both sets and their different impressions) Cheers from Germany, Andreas =D

  • Posted on 08/17/2013 by photosmith   
    Andreas, Zerotia and I went back and forth on this for a while -- while we loved the intense color cast of sunset (and the cool tones when she is laying on the roof, after the sun has gone down), the starkness of the black and white (it's a conversion process I've honed over the past year, to mimic a particular film and developer combination that I love to use in my medium format cameras) won-out.

  • Posted on 06/05/2013 by Manchester   
    hey there, thanks for the lovely comment on my wall (can you tell I've fallen a little behind writing everyone back? lol) Not sure when the next time I'll be back in NC is but possibly august or in the fall :)

  • Posted on 08/16/2013 by photosmith   
    Just keep me in the loop, either here, or on FB.

  • Posted on 04/25/2013 by TwistedAngel108   
    Howdy! Thanks for the friend request! :) Your work Rocks!

  • Posted on 08/16/2013 by photosmith

  • Posted on 03/22/2013 by AlycHope   
    hey darling how are you?

  • Posted on 08/16/2013 by photosmith   
    I'm good (slow to reply, though). How are you?

  • Posted on 03/18/2013 by EnglishBabs   
    Congratulations on winning the January/February Top Photography prize.Remnants of Empire and Innocence is such a beautiful set, and a very well-deserved winner!

  • Posted on 03/19/2013 by photosmith   
    Thanks, Babs -- funny thing is, I was sick as a dog on the day we made those photos and, until Spiro decided to retire, a couple weeks later, it was always our intention to go back to that location and reshoot, because we were concerned that the first go-round wasn't up to snuff. :)

  • Posted on 03/19/2013 by EnglishBabs   
    It's a shame Spiro decided to retire. Isn't it funny how sometimes sets you think won't be any good, actually turn out to be the best? That happened with us with our Lady Leather set. We were told to leave the building where we were shooting, and had about 10 minutes to finish the shoot. I have never shot so fast! I thought the photos would be rubbish, but they turned out great!

  • Posted on 03/20/2013 by photosmith   
    We were dodging dozens of hikers (I've never seen that area so busy) and fighting fading light. It should have been a disaster. :)

  • Posted on 03/20/2013 by EnglishBabs   
    I know all about dodging hikers! The joys of outdoor shoots, but I love the outdoor shoots the best, don't you? Fading light is a problem too, especially in the winter when the days are so short.

  • Posted on 03/20/2013 by photosmith   
    I don't think I've ever seen so many people walking around these ruins -- even on a gorgeous day and this one was anything but.

  • Posted on 03/21/2013 by EnglishBabs   
    The most interruptions we ever had in a shoot were when we shot The Lockkeeper's Daughter last spring on the bank of a canal. We thought it would be quiet there, but every couple of minutes someone came walking along, or a boat came sailing by. I was on and off with the clothes so many times! So funny!

  • Posted on 02/11/2013 by Corvid   
    Thanks for friending!

  • Posted on 02/11/2013 by photosmith   
    Thanks for accepting. If you're ever on this coast, I'll happily buy you a beer. Nice work.

  • Posted on 02/10/2013 by PollyVicious

    Hi, Nile!

  • Posted on 01/25/2013 by SugarShine   
    I sure have seen some of your non-Zivity work!

  • Posted on 03/20/2013 by photosmith   
    So, when are you going to visit, so we can make some Zivity and non-Zivity artwork?

  • Posted on 01/23/2013 by Kealani   
    Thanks for your friend request! Beautiful work here :)

  • Posted on 03/20/2013 by photosmith   
    Thanks, Kealani! Sorry for the slow replies.

  • Posted on 01/21/2013 by AniaDeVon   
    I just got back from a trip to Charlotte... sorry we missed each other!

  • Posted on 01/22/2013 by photosmith   
    Well, Charlotte is (sort of) in the other direction -- I'm about two hours north/east, along I-40. So, the next time you come to NC, come to Durham -- there's a couple of remarkable photographers here… and me. :)

  • Posted on 01/23/2013 by AniaDeVon   
    I know... I drive 40 into NC to get to Charlotte...

  • Posted on 01/19/2013 by ashphoto   
    Thanks for the FR! I appreciate the kind words.

  • Posted on 01/22/2013 by photosmith   
    Thanks for accepting -- I look forward to your next set.

  • Posted on 01/19/2013 by MetroGlamour   
    Thanks for the FR, keep up the nice work

  • Posted on 01/19/2013 by photosmith   
    Thank you for accepting! And for the kind words! Your work is fantastic.

  • Posted on 01/19/2013 by superman1692   
    Hey mate, happy to accept your friend request! Your work is great, no doubt!

  • Posted on 01/19/2013 by photosmith   
    I promise not to hold it against you that you're from Michigan (both my parents are Ohioans). ;) Come visit, I'd love to work with you and you can enjoy a break from winter. (Yes, it snowed two days ago, but three days before that, it was in the 70s.)

  • Posted on 01/18/2013 by mfarring13   
    Thanks for the FR! you have nice work as well!! I see from your profile pic you shoot an RB67.. I just got one a couple weeks ago!

  • Posted on 01/18/2013 by photosmith   
    I love using the RB -- that is, until I have to lug it through the woods (which I did with Spiro last weekend). I seem to have a thing for heavy cameras -- my 1D definitely isn't a featherweight. Oh, and thanks for the tumblr follow, as well, Michael.

  • Posted on 01/18/2013 by mfarring13   
    you are welcome. I seem to have a thing for heavy cameras as well... I have an RB67, Nikon F5 35mm, and a D300s with battery grip... apparently im not happy until my back is breaking! hahaha!

  • Posted on 01/19/2013 by photosmith   
    Yeah, I pile on, too -- my F3 has the motor drive and even my "lightweight" EOS 3 has the heavy-duty power pack. I think the lightest camera that I own is the only one that's retired -- the K1000 that I got when I was 12.

  • Posted on 01/19/2013 by mfarring13   
    Nice!

  • Posted on 01/18/2013 by photosmith   
    This is what I get for working my way through my email, slowly -- I just wrote nearly the exact same thing on your wall. (I'm a little slow -- still getting over the flu.)

    Do you ever venture to the east coast?

  • Posted on 01/19/2013 by KatrinaWhite   
    Haha aww I hope you get better soon! I have family out on the east coast but since I'm a full time student I don't get to travel much....

  • Posted on 01/19/2013 by photosmith   
    I'm doing okay. I think I'm up to about 80% human, today. :)

  • Posted on 01/20/2013 by KatrinaWhite   
    Haha you're almost there! :P

  • Posted on 01/13/2013 by Tita
