I received a call the next day explaining that the store manager would love for me to photograph the event, but had to check with Clarence's people. I told her to let them know that I would be more than willing to send Clarence the CD/DVD of the photos. Didn't hear anything...I decided to go to the signing anyway...What was the worse that could happen? I arrived to the store just as a black, stretch limo appeared in front of the store...I tried to peek, but didn't see Clarence. I found Thea, the store manager, and she told me to set up in the Media Area...As soon as I fired off some test shots, Clarence comes walking in.
So...Bruce fans...dig this...I shook the hand that shakes the hand of Bruce Springsteen on a pretty regular basis...
Check out my website - http://www.cameraiphotostudio.com/ - for more photographs of the Clarence Clemons book signing. Should be updated by tomorrow night.

It was a day I will always remember...a day I will never forget. Please take a moment to remember those who died in the attack, and those fallen heroes who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan protecting us and the innocent people living in those two countries.

I admire the work of Ansel Adams. I study and look at his B&W photographs and hope that in my lifetime I could achieve one print like his. I believe, though, that Ansel Adams was alive during a time when photography was desired...people wanted to own photographs and other works of art. This was something new for the masses to be a part of, join the collective, so to speak.
You know the question, "If you could go back in time, and speak to anyone, who would you speak to?" I would love to hang out with Ansel Adams for a month. The knowledge this man had would be worth more than gold.
I leave you with this quote to think about. It really made me think about my views on the world, as I see it, with and without the camera. For me, there is so much ugliness, bitterness, hatred, and cruelty. I want to forget that for awhile and concentrate on the beauty life/nature/people have to offer me and one another.
Luis"A great photograph is a full expression of what one feels about what is being photographed in the deepest sense and is a true expression of what one feels about life in its entirety."

On top of everything else, the Hickman Photography Exhibition will take place June 1, 2009. The Artist Meet and Greet will be held on June 5, 2009 from 6-8 pm. Admission is free and the show runs the entire month of June. I am planning on exhibiting 20 framed pieces and showing a portfolio with some matted and unmatted pieces. Everything will be for sale.
Recently, I received a press pass to the Devon Horse Show. I am excited about this, and now I need to decide when to go.
