Robert will be at the State Fair this week! Rebecca did such a beautiful job of capturing his work place. Here’s her wonderful blog post. Enjoy
I belong to a co-op gallery in Silverton, Oregon called Lunaria Gallery. Each of the 25 artists are beyond talented and I feel so lucky each time I get to visit one of their studios. Since I’m a fine art photographer (and a pet photographer), I use outdoor light. I own lots of lenses and several tripods but no big lights and ergo – no studio.

Dive in and enjoy Kelly Rae’s blog and website.
