Andy Biggs is an American, but his website (www.andybiggs.com)
displays many African images. The Galleries section contains collections from
Tanzania, Kenya, Zanzibar as well as the American West. Images are shown large
with real captions identifying where they were made. "Zebra Sunset"
is as good as it gets when looking at images that capture the spirit of Africa
that sent Burton and Speke searching for the Mountains of the Moon in 1854.
Yet there's humor in his photographs of flamingos in "Lesser Flamingo
Limbo." In the Tanzania collection, you'll find something completely
different: a monochrome African photograph made in Serengeti National Park.

Closer to home, Biggs' image of Mono Lake in the Eastern Sierras is
just falling down beautiful and is the kind of landscape image that every photographer
interested in the outdoors aspires to, but few attain. His Monument Valley images
are incredible, matched only by the unexpected beauty Biggs captures in Death
Valley. Prints of all of these amazing images are available at most affordable
prices. Biggs' workshops also look interesting and Mary and I are planning
to attend his 2005 Texas Wildflowers workshop.
Poet Of The Smoky Mountains
Adam Jones is a quiet, lanky photographer whose persona is of the quintessential
"southern gentleman." Based in Louisville, Kentucky, Jones'
book on the Great Smoky Mountains lives up to its subtitle: "Simply Beautiful."
His classy website (www.adamjonesphoto.com)
is a collection of the eclectic images he creates for clients and himself. The
galleries, which feature large, non-clickable thumbnails, have warm, empathetic
images of horses at work and play as well as colorful street rods. All of these
photographs are executed with an interesting combination of flair and sensitivity,
which might just be a description of Jones himself.

When you're in a gallery, there is a pop-up menu to take you from one
to another, so just in a mouse click you can watch a hippo yawning in an African
river and switch to a photograph of an owl sitting on a cactus in the southwest
US. The Architecture gallery's contents varies from fisheye shots of modern
structures to nostalgic photographs of barns in Jones' home state. He
does it all in color and always with a distinctive style that is the hallmark
of a truly great photographer. Photographers will find inspiration in the many
galleries, including Abstracts, Insects, ("no thanks, I had bugs for lunch"),
and Patterns. Be sure to stop by Books & Posters and purchase one of his
books. There's even a how-to book called The Step-by-Step Photography
They're Gonna Put Me In The Movies
is a new project that I'm involved with along with movie still photographer
Ralph Nelson, SMPSP (www.ralphnelson.com).
Its goal is to sell stock images as prints to be used by motion picture and
television set decorators for use on sets. Some of Nelson's images for
MovieWalls will be seen in the new Jim Carrey film Fun with Dick and Jane. While
this site is far from finished, look for the MovieWalls name during the credits
at the end of your next film at the multiplex.
