I got the call earlier this week that I was awarded one of three annual Zion AIR's. Starting in mid-October I get four weeks with no commitments other than photography (aside from two, hour-long artist talks, that is). No work, no lawn mowing, no dog walking. Just me and a camera.
I have no idea the direction I'm taking other than I'm going to try and avoid the many cliches (as best I can). As much as I would love to stock up on salable work, this is not an appropriate opportunity for pretty pictures (well, maybe a few). My goal is to focus (literally) on the lesser appreciated, yet equally compelling, aspects of the park.
No matter how it works out, it's gonna be one helluva ride.
