A bit of press in Le'Toile Mag


They took my words from the press release and tweezed it up for me.  I should have their staff write my artist statements.

The reception was really fun, and not just because they had real food for nibbling and wine and beer, but the work looked great in their office space and strangers and friends alike stopped by.  For some reason that's important to me. I enjoyed my conversations and the chance to show people around photo by photo and give background info.  I very much enjoy taking pictures and am thankful for the chance to show my work.

Mannequins from London




I just got back from 2 weeks in London and Scotland.  It is so nice to travel.  I wasn't expecting much, but London really goes all out for their window displays.  Here are a few outtakes.

Website update - Portfolio pages added


For years I used Smugmug hosting so that people could order their wedding and family photos directly from there.  It worked great and also doubled as a wedding photography portfolio.  I think the last wedding I shot was in 2006.  So, it was definitely due for a revamp.  Smugmug just did its own redesign and offered some more attractive page layouts to choose from.

I've archived all of the wedding galleries, added the Store Window Portraits, and came up with this: www.mcgrawphoto.smugmug.com.

Here are some of the Store Window Portraits you will find here, in addition to exhibit history, resume, etc.

Mona Lisa of Robbinsdale - SOLD at the MN State Fair Fine Arts competition




So, I'm pretty excited to have gotten into the MN State Fair Fine Arts competition this year.  I made it a few years ago with my Geese on the Mississippi River photo.  Mona Lisa of Robbinsdale was shot earlier this year at night outside a second hand shop.  There is a 3 foot by 4 foot Mona Lisa print in the window.  I was testing out my new camera and its low-light capabilities and caught the reflections of the traffic, too.  The headlights lined up with the nostrils.  Pretty funny.

Anyway, so I got into the fair competition, went to check it out and it took me forever because it was on the last wall on the left.  What did I see?  A red dot!  Sold!  I'm so happy this photo will be sitting in someone's living room.  So happy I don't need to make another trip down to the fair grounds to pick up my photo, too.

About Me

My Photo
Minneapolis, MN, United States
Photographer/Artist based in Mpls, MN. I have a studio in the NE Arts District--Studio #274 at the Northrup King Bldg, 1500 Jackson St NE. I photograph elements of nature to explore color, shape, and composition. My goal is to capture images of the nature around me in a way that explodes (or seaps) with beauty. If that nature is in a vacant city lot, all the better. (All images Copyrighted. Use permitted with permission).
