Alongside our friend and author/designer Kelly McManus, Kurt will be signing the brand new Children's book "Welcome to the Small World A Book of Big Surprises" featuring his photography. The events will take place this Saturday, March 1st and Sunday, March 2nd at a few locations in the Twin Cities. Feel free to stop by if you are in the area!
We'll be flying back to Minnesota to attend the launch party as well as a few signings for the Children's book "Welcome to the Small World a Book of Big Surprises" that features Kurt's photography. It's an open invitation, if you wish to attend, please fill out an RSVP by clicking here. Hope to see you soon!
We spent a few days on the Sanibel causeway and took many bike trips to the island to explore. Kurt got his best work towards the end of our stay, which tends to happen this way. We had sunny days most of the week, except for the last couple days which were foggy.
Kurt took care in preparing the props and the scenarios ahead of the photo shoots. While in the field, there were many challenges: keeping both the camera and the lens dry, not loosing a miniature to the surf (alas we did lose our sea captain in Tarpon Bay), finding the right shells to include in the scene (interesting in shape and color), finding the right texture and color for the sand, evaluating the tide and anticipating the advance or retreat of the sea, keeping an eye on the light.
For me, it's a very rewarding moment when Kurt exclaims: " I think we got it!" I love to hear this because it means: "I accomplished what I had in mind, it'a wrap".
Kurt and I took a walk on the Royal Palm Hammock Trail in Collier Seminole State Park. We were looking for opportunities and angles to photograph the miniatures. Kurt found just the right tree to photograph the climber.
