Top Photographer Finalists

Although many of us were holding high hopes for news on the 6th of September as to the Finalists in Adorama's New TV show Top Photographer, we eventually quit holding our breath.  No e-mails or announcements were received for a few days, and after many of the semi-finalists began tweeting about the silence, Julie had a response from a spokesperson at Adorama to a tweet that to her "understanding that the Finalists have been contacted."

And that was it.

A lot of hype, suspense, and most importantly support from all of you with best wishes for her in the competition.  We really appreciate your thoughts, prayers, and well-wishes.  We were obviously disappointed in the lack of information considering the efforts made by so many contestants.  Hopefully, Nigel and the folks at Adorama will rethink future endeavors and be just a little more considerate of the contestants.  As I write this, it should be noted that had Julie been selected, we would be in NYC to begin filming.  Instead, an email was sent out en-mass on Friday, 9/16 with a link introducing the finalists.  
You can see that link HERE

Again, many thanks for all your loving support, and we hope you will keep following as there are many surprises in store over the next few weeks.

Perhaps this really is me...

As Time Goes By...

Stopped In Our Tracks
It's mid-September and Fall is just around the corner.  The Pumpkin Spiced Everything is already showing up on every street corner and the recipes for its uses are being shared with the efficiency of a Civil Defense siren in the 60s.

What else is there to this whole Fall thing?  Well. around our house one would think perhaps Halloween.  Actually, this years Halloween costumes have been finished and hanging in the closet ready for use for over a month now! Of course, that leaves our favorite topic - Photos!

Last year, we took off for a 5 week and nearly 6000 mile road trip with 3 cats and our 30' 5th wheel. These are a few of the never before released images I took on the trip.  

What are you doing this Fall?  Do you have any favorite events coming up?  Perhaps a weekend Fall Festival, Oktoberfest, Renaissance Faire, or just a drive through the countryside?

Wherever you go to just get away for a while and enjoy the colors, smells, and sounds of the season, take a camera along and take it out for a little walk!  These are all moments in life that you will never see again!  The colors and clouds will always be different.  The winds will shift and the water levels will change, giving the scenes completely different feels.  The sun will rise and set on a different world every day.  Save a few memories of what you saw and did!

Wherever you go and whatever you do, keep the glass clean and the shutters clicking.

Oh, and in case we're on the road somewhere shooting, Happy Halloween!

Only 24 hours in a day?

I was reminded that there are only 24 hours in a day, but somehow I always seem to need more! Sound familiar? At least this is a three day weekend for me from the Telephone Factory, so I have been able to get a few things done.

Although I would like to say that I have been out flying my quadcopters, taking great aerial footage and stills,

And I would love to say that I have been fulfilling many items on the "Honey-do" list,

This weekend has been spent so far with a great deal of time clicking away and banging on the keyboard.

Surely by now, you know that Julie Everhart and I are the owners and operators of "From Camera to Wall".  One of my responsibilities in that operation is maintaining our website.

Your website?  Why yes, our website!  Please take a couple of minutes and visit it, look around the site, and if you are feeling especially giving, leave us a word or two about how it looks.

As always, I appreciate your views and comments, and will provide some new insights within the next couple of days.  So while I work on a couple of other things, clean that glass and get those shutters clicking!

Thanks again!
