I wanted to take a second and share a bit about Ryan Muirhead, my photography assistant.  Ryan contacted me almost a year ago about assisting on photoshoots and I did what I normally do with all the requests I get, I put it aside and thought I'd take a look at it later. That makes me sound mean but I get dozens of requests a year!  Then he contacted me again, which is ALWAYS a good sign to me.  Persistence means they're serious.  So I took a look at his work and decided he was more than qualified to come assist.

Since that time his work has exploded! He took very good advantage of new access to models, stylists, and ideas and quickly brought his work to a whole new level.  Go give him a look, and tell him I said hello!

Enjoy!

The milestone is nearing, and I'm taking my queue (did I spell that right?) from Chris Weeks (awesome photographer and blogger!) and am offering a signed 8x12 print to visitor number 200,000.

If you happen to be the lucky winner then simply email me a screen shot that shows you as visitor number 200,000 and choose any photo in my deviantart gallery.

Also include
Your Name
Your Mailing Address
The name of the photo you'd like a print of!

*** Please note ***
A small handful of my images are not available as prints due to licensing or other concerns, so you may have to select a different image if that is the case.

I will ship your print for free if you live in the Continental US - International shipping may cost extra.

If there is some small mix-up and I get several entries with the winning number then I will figure out who cheated, if I can't figure it out then I reserve the right to draw randomly for the winner... but if I do figure it out I will publicly shame you and ask Hitler to punch you in the face when you get to hell.  >:-|

According to the total number of 'favorites' received these are my top ten images, in order from 10 to 1.  What do you think?  Are these my best ten images or are the number of favorites a poor way to judge?  I have my own thoughts, of course, but what are yours?

Starting with number 10:

Thanks everyone for all the faves and wonderful comments, I read them all and respond to few - but I appreciate the support.  And I feel very honored for the DD today!  I noticed one of my images started to get a lot of comments last night, and it took me a second to figure out why.
