A Constantly Changing Creative Work In Progress

Futernick Family Art Gallery Show

From February 3rd through March 3rd 2013 I will be showing both my Biscayne National Park and Everglades National Parks work together. I have done a few Clothes Line Shows with a portion of the work being shown but this time I will be presenting the two traveling shows together for all to see. The Futernick Family Gallery is located at the Dave and Mary Alper Jewish Community Center located at 11155S.W. 112th Avenue.

Web Site Under Construction.

I am working and re-working my website to add some new galleries and images while removing some of the old work that just doesn’t seem to be as exciting as some of the new work. I am also adding new galleries to the Artist Info tab which will include some shots of me working, Media Articles, Images of some of my shows as well as a gallery I have wanted to add for some time now which will include some images of the other mediums I sometimes work in. All in all this will be a better site with lots of new work and information about the work and the ideas I use to create my images. I am trying to keep my website more current and this is a big step in the right direction. Should you also like to know about upcoming shows and events please email me at briansgallery@comcast.net an please don’t worry I am not one for sending emails every time I take a picture. This year I sent a total of five emails and have found it to be more then enough emails to let people know what I am up to. You can also like my Facebook page Brian Trainor Photography .com by just clicking on the link on my website homepage. Have a Great day and don’t forget to stop back cause things here are always changing for the better.

14 is my new lucky number for December and January

I wasn’t so sure where I was going to show my Biscayne National Park Project for December 2011, and January 2012, and then came the offer to move my Everglades show up from the June and July time frame, and seeings that it is already book it wasn’t possible. When they called I made mention of my Biscayne N.P. work which the Homestead CIty Hall Program coordinator seemed to like, and then it had a place to show for December and January. I am going to be at the December 14th evening council meeting where I am will speak a little bit about the work and the idea behind the work.

I am now also going to hang my newest work the Everglades Project in the Everglades City Museum on December 30, 2011 for the month of January, and my opening will be on Saturday January 14, 2012. I had never met the museum director Mr Timothy England until this past Wednesday, and to say the least he seems to be one of those guys as an artist you wish you could work with on all your shows. I had spoken with Mr England on the phone a few times, and now in person, and all I can say is I wish I could work with more people like him when it comes to doing shows.. Having worked with many other people and places makes one appreciate when a good program director or artist coordinator comes along. If you or someone you know lives close by or is going to be passing by Everglades City in January please do stop in for a look cause you wont be disappointed to say the least.

Doing portraits in a new way, and then some.

I have always wanted to do portraiture, but do it in a new way.  So when a friend asked me to take his picture for the  up coming Nori Nori album I though it would be another somewhat traditional people photo, but it turned out to be so much more. So when we started shooting, I thought traditional, but as time went by we evolved into an image that was very much anything but traditional.  The album should be out by the end of the month, and I can’t wait to see this image in the album.  Devin thanks for letting me create something a bit more unique then what I thought we were going to do at first glance.  You can visit the Nori Nori website at www.norinori.net and get a feel for the music.   Enjoy Brian.

Doing Whats Already Done In a New Way.

So what is it about the Everglades and all the photographers that have created photographs in the Everglades that inspires me to create images there? I always like the challenge of creating images of places as well as things that are commonly photographed, and in doing so I find great pleasure when I succeed in creating new images from what may seem to be overly photographed places and things. So if you want to shoot the Everglades just try and do it in a way that makes it your image rather then a copy of what has already been captured. Good luck cause it isn’t always easy to achieve the goal of creating something totally new and exciting. Brian
