At the time of my last post here, things were dreadfully slow at the studio. I had a wonderful summer, riding my bike with great friends and spending time with my son home from college. But the downtime can become unnerving. After twenty-plus years in the biz, I understand the peaks and valleys are a natural component of operating a commercial photography studio; however, you never quite get used to it.

Fortunately, things got quite busy in the fall, and I had an opportunity to work on some fun projects with some fun people, many of whom I worked with for the first time. I will try to share some of it here in the coming weeks.

When slow, I try to push myself in new directions and get some of my more creative work out where folks can see it. A few months back, I made a submission to an online competition and was recently informed three of my images, below, were nominated for inclusion into the winners gallery, two in the pro category of “people” and one in the pro category of “fine art.” There is some pretty interesting work there– check it out!

Shadowplay; Richmond Street Photography




I’ve been running around the woods and on the roads of the Richmond area for the past couple years photographing people riding their bikes.  It is exhausting at times. The incidence of poison ivy infliction and chigger bites goes up tremendously when you are standing just off the trail, in the knee and waist deep greenery, while others fly by.  Lying down trailside with my camera, as is not unusual for me, only compounds that fact.

For once, I thought it would be fun (and safer) to have them come to me.  So, yesterday, I set up a backdrop and some lights in my studio and invited members of the RVA Racing team to drop by.  Mykl, Eric, and Mike came by with their bikes, and we got some fun and interesting images.  And then we went for a ride…Studio Photography of Mykl Egan
