Quote of the Day

Mother’s Day Is a Week Away

One of my favorite portrait photos to remind you that Mother’s Day is just a week away. I love nothing more than photographing a mother and child-is there a greater love?

Want to give Mom something special? Why not book a  photo session with her so you have a memory that will last forever? If you’re in the Los Angeles area, you can schedule a session with me through my website www.chattergoldstudios.com.

Not in the Los Angeles area? I’m sure there are many fantastic photographers in your area. Thank goodness for Google! Support small business in your area.

Magnolia Perfection

In China, magnolia flowers are symbols of purity and nobility. In Japan, the magnolia is used as a medicinal and ornamental plant. The flower is called Hanakotoba in the Japanese system of flower symbolism. This means that the flower is sublime, natural and shows love for nature. Magnolias are associated with the life force and are often presented at births.

Inspired Again

I was at the @VonLintelLA Gallery last night, enjoying the nature inspired work of British born artist Susan Derges. Her images are created without a camera, quite photogram-like, including the shadows that occur in nature, among the trees and water under moonlight. Fascinating and inspiring work…and reminiscent of a series I started in 1999 but with an urban New York twist.

The museums that are lucky enough feature her work are the Met in NYC,  the San Francisco Museum and the Albert & Victoria museum in London. Go see their collections if you can. If you are in LA, go see her work at Von Lintel gallery while they’re on display.

Here’s one of the images of the NYC series I began in 1999. Dreamy yellow toned images of NYC shot with film and my Canon AE-1. Yes, I cheated a little…I used a camera 😉

This and others in my series are available for purchase -just click on the image above or peruse my website here.

Happy Sunday!
