I was recently honored by the acquisition and permanent installation of two of my Chaco Canyon prints in the NM State Capital-"the Roundhouse". The Roundhouse houses a premier art collection of state artists (as well as the state legislature)and I am very honored to be in it. It is a very selective collection of some 600 works-all of which are on permanent display. As space runs out they become increasingly selective. Some years ago I approached them twice-got nowhere and basically gave up, but last year a board member approached me at a group show I was in at the Albuquerque Museum and it finally happened. Scanned 4x5 Tri-X Film with orange filter.

Awesome, Kirk.  I need to get out there with you sometime and explore my new-found love of shooting rocks and sand.

I don't typically shoot weddings but had the opportunity to shoot a friends wedding last weekend.  These are a couple of the images that I like as plow through the processing.

Well, it's NeoCon... the world's biggest commercial furniture expo and I am absolutely drained.  We've put in about 8 days or work so far (in 7 actual days) and produced some work that I'm really happy with at Herman Miller and a couple other showrooms.

We were working around construction, installation and styling the whole time.  The space just outside of every composition is a mess of workers, furniture and props EVERYWHERE.  I have ingested more caffeine in the last week than I care to admit and have filled up nearly a TB worth of Hard drive space.  The images, while not quite straight out of camera only had time for about 15 minutes of retouching each before they had to be turned around for the monday morning web launch.



More at the blog...

I like this. Beautiful work as always.

Ps: IMO, the plant is a mixed bag. It ads an "organic" feeling and a warmer tone in a rather cold and surgical precision environement (and also balanced the compo), but on the other hand, it has nothing to do with it.
I would have been on the difficult choice to keep or not to keep if I shooted that. In the end, I'd get rid-of the dentist waiting room plant in post and just center on the space with its pureness.

Fantastic Kirk,

B&W just lends itself so well to this type of drama.
Do you still find yourself time in the darkroom to print yourself?

Thanks. These are scanned film printed digitally. For many years I printed these traditionally and could not get exactly what I wanted-maybe 95%. Digitally I could get exactly what I wanted.

You can 't do that, Chris: you simply must indulge the entire triumvirate: rocks, sand and at least one tree!

Enjoy.

Or...in Rob's style:
Rocks, sand, and at least One chick

Topless of course.

Hi CB,

Really beautiful.  If I may ask a few questions about your workflow.  (This is in regards to your office and NEOCON photography)

Do you do your own postproduction work?  Just curious to know how many layers do you typical work with?

I really appreciate how you manage the various color temperatures (strobes vs hot lights vs daylight).  Do you balance every to daylight 5500k on the location or correct the colors in post in layers?

Your style really allows the architecture and furnishings to shine.  Cool and crisp.  I can really tell you are very graceful under pressure!

Thank you for sharing.

regards,
jeffery

Pfff guys.
The only thing that's missing in those
Desert landscapes is a ww hippy van
Parked next to the tree
With a fire and a guitar.
A bit of Neil Young Or CSN
And a view camera on a wooden tripod.

Thanks for sharing Chris. Really inspiring work. Can I ask are you hiding the demo's or are they behind camera?
