I finally finished updating my photo and design site www.sdphotography.net. I started the re-design in March so you can understand just why happy I am to have completed it today. Most of my time was spent editing through old and new photography work and compiling all the design work I have done in the past few years. On average, I shoot about 300 photos a week so editing was pretty intense. I used to keep all my freelance work private, I was almost embarrassed to be a fine artist that was making a living though web and graphic design. Art school taught us to avoid commercialism. Ideally, I would like to be best known for my abstract cameraless work, but that is only a tiny part of my entire creative being. Now everything is all so integrated into my life and I don’t feel the need to keep it all so segregated when I present myself to the internet universe. The parties, my personal aesthetics that play a role in how I design, the images I take on a daily basis (some for work and some for pleasure), flyers, cooking, even this blog, they all are a part of my creative entity. They are not a product of a daily job I hate doing for people I can’t stand. I also made this site so my mom can stop wondering “what do you do all day?” So take a look and enjoy in this intricate web of work and play, that I have woven for you.

These are analog images formed directly on to film without the use of a camera lens (in the same way as a photogram), of the refraction patterns of light passing through formed and shaped plastics. Normally a b/w image, colour has been added directly into the plastic. The fine detail of the diffraction patterns can be seen when viewed large.

I have previously spoken about my love for the fun and quirky music of The Real Tuesday Weld and I forgot how much I love this song. I really think that they have a completely unique sound.

Check out their cute new online store where you can download some free audio goodies and purchase some strange and wonderful handmade things.

And watch this lovely gem as well.
