We are looking forward to a new project starting in April 2018.

We will be posting biopics of representatives of the Kansas City creative community.  People are creating all around the city.  I will start featuring some of them here and on a few other sites.

We will be interviewing visual artists, musicians, writers, and other creative types.   We will show where they are now with thier art, and the journey they have traveled to reach their present creative place.  We will feature the artists themselves and their art.

This project will be an exciting collaboration between my photography and interviewing, and my husband's writing.   

We have been talking about this project for a long time, but after spending another night at Prosepero's (www.prosperosbookstore.com ) listening to the energetic Irish music and taking pictures of the musicians, I decided to dive in to the project.

Here are a few pictures from the Prospero's Irish Sessions to wet your whistle while I'm working out the details of our first few artist pics.

I will try to add a little Irish music to the slideshow in the near future.

Some of the vendors I use for printing have raised their printing prices as a result I was making a negative profit.  I will be going through the price lists, updating and simplifying.   I should have updates done by April 24

new focus for 2017 http://photogenic.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/2/new-focus-for-2017 redwoodswarm 33907-2_09_11_tonemappedredwoodswarm 33907-2_09_11_tonemapped

I have not been updating this site lately since I've been wrestling with myself over the direction I should take with my art at this time.  

I want to get back to the roots of what interests me about photography.  What this means is doing only that which I love and not saying yes to jobs just because they are a paycheck.    

This means this year's photography will be more project focused.  I have a few projects in mind, but I'm going to work out a few more details before I put out exactly what I'm going to be doing.

We recently adopted a dog and for the past month most of my pictures have been of him.  I promise this will change over time and I will get back to creating art.   

I don't have any shows planned in the near future.  Once I have a collection of work from the new projects, I will update with details of any future showings.

Colorado LOVE http://photogenic.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/8/colorado-love We just returned from an AMAZING time in Colorad.

We started the 2 week trip with a drive through Rocky  Mountain National Park and the wedding of a dear friend Mary to her kind, romantic, partner Paul

  I'll be posting pictures over the next 1-2 weeks of the wedding and related festivities.  

After the wedding we spent the next week driving, hiking and camping along the continental divide.   Everyplace was beautiful, my favorite was our hike and campsite around Leadville.  

 

After I've finished with the wedding photos I'll start posting more of the beautiful mountains and canyons we witnessed in Colorado.    It was truly a beautiful magical place and I can't wait to return to see more.    I feel like it would be fun to make a week long Cororado trip in each season and do a photography show just around the changing beauty of the mountains through the seasons.

Contemplating the 100 days project, do I or don't I? http://photogenic.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/12/contemplating-the-100-days-project 2009.03.01steps streaks ripples2009,03.01steps streaks ripples   

Another photographer sent an invite recently for a Winter Solstice project.  Her project is to take one picture every hour on Dec 21, the day of the Winter Equinox.   There a good reasons for this project (a higher proportion of hours in the day having good quality light with the sun being lower on this shortest day of the year.)    I liked the idea of a Solstice project, but I will be indoors at my day job for most of the daylight hours on this day, and probably with clients where I can not rush outside to take a picture on the hour.  

Not wanting to give up on the idea of a Solstice photo project, I searched the internet for Solstice Photography Projects.  What I found was a more general creativity project which has me feeling hopeful about a creatively inspired winter.   I think I will do it if I can settle on a focus by the Dec 21 deadline!

The project (which is initiated in a more Northern community than KC is "The 100 day project, Out of the Darkness and into the Light"

http://the100dayproject.com/2016-out-of-the-darkness-project/

The project, in a nutshell, is that you choose a creative idea, and you spend some time with it every day for 100 days, from Winter Solstice to Summer Equinox.   There are different potential versions.  In one person you could have a large project in mind and just do some kind of work on it during each day.  The other would be that you actually create some small piece of work a photograph, a sketch, something related to your chosen subject.

winter20150822photogenic.zenfolio.com277winter20150822photogenic.zenfolio.com277 Copyright Genevieve Casey 2014Copyright Genevieve Casey 2014

If I do this project I have to consider my Tuesday work schedule, which has be in the office usually from 830 or 9 AM until between 8-10 PM, plus the 30 minute drive time from work to home.     This leaves little in the way of daylight hours, but to be honest even my normal 5:30 PM quit time has me leaving at or a little after sunset during this part of the year.  I am not typically an early riser, so I could use the opportunity to capture sunrise, something which I seldom observe, much less photograph.   I catch sunset with relative frequency, but I miss the Sun's rising.   I could make a project of the Sun's rising and setting - requiring myself to capture a sunrise on any day that I will not leave work early enough to watch it set.   The main challenge is that I live in a suburb and I would have to go someplace to capture the sunrise, then drive back to get ready for work.  If only there was a pretty scene on my route in... That is definitely a desirable feature of my next daily commute - someplace along the route that makes a consistently good photo op.

If, after contemplating the thought of rising early and driving out of my way every Tuesday, the sunrise option doesn't seem practical, then I will contemplate another project.   One that I've been giving some thought is working more with abstract images, especially altered reflections.  Some of my post popular images have featured water, and some element of abstraction or distortion.

All of this bears contemplation.   Another way to look at the challenge is to spend most of the week reading about a concept, and looking at examples of other people's work, learning how to execute a particular technique, then to spend my weekend executing the shot.    This would allow me to try some more conceptual work that what i typically do, perhaps even to collaborate with my husband as we have sometimes discussed.

As always, I am open to suggestions for what you would like to see in the 100 days following December 21.

We are looking forward to participating in the Empty Bowls Event tonight.  I contributed a canvas photo print of Nikita and Wes Casey (my talented husband) donated a sculpture of a buffalo skull.    Many talented artists have donated to the art auction including the amazing Jilli Nell, who submitted both painting and jewlery, and LeRoy Grubbs who has played a major role in organizing the event in addition to his sculptural talent.  Ceramic artists all over the city have donated bowls.   Restaurants have donated soup and beer.  This will be a fantastic event to benefit Harvesters and other local food charities.   I hope we see you at 6!

Art show updates and a quick word about portraits http://photogenic.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/9/art-show-updates-and-a-quick-word-about-portraits Portraits and Fall shows
  • As we transition into fall it is time to start thinking about those family, senior, and engagement photos.   More on that soon.  
  • The other change is summer art shows have come down, and fall shows are starting to go up.    
  • My work at Suite 100 and Dotte POP has either been purchased or has been removed to make way for the next show.  Thanks to both locations for a great Summer of supporting and promoting local art.

In addition there are some smaller more affordable items including magnets, cards and some smaller prints.

KC Ethnic Fest 2015 http://photogenic.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/8/kc-ethnic-fest-2015 I lost the post I originally wrote about the Ethnic Fest.  I'll come back and update it later.  For now here are the pics I was able to take of people before and after the flag ceremony.

This wasn't a paid gig - so I did very little if any editing on these other than a quick crop and turning some of them to black and white.

 

 

Thank you to all of the lovely people who stopped and posed for pics.

Art Prints - and Guidance on Navigating the site http://photogenic.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/6/art-prints---and-guidance-on-navigating-the-site Currently you can see some of my work hanging at two different businesses, representing the VALA Gallery     

1) Metal Prints are hanging at

This show will remain up for the 3 months following the June 5 opening reception & is available for viewing during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  Arrangements for viewing can be made by calling the Corley Law Firm at 816-753-5556 Sales of work by VALA artists are handled by Penny Thieme of THE VALA GALLERY, 913-826-6858 Sales of works by non-VALA artists are handled by each individual artist.  

2) Framed Archival Paper prints are hanging at

Blue Valley Parks and Rec Activity Center,  6545 W. 151st Street

BVPRD hours:
Monday - Friday, 6am-9pm
Saturday, 7am-7pm
Sunday, noon-7pm

You can also see my work at a pop up shop that is not connected with VALA:

3) Dotte POP Shop gift/gallery, 731 Minnesota AVE 66101

Shop hours: Wed - Sat 11-4

  If you see my work in one of these spaces and wish to purchase a print in a different size or format than what you see on display - here are some instructions for seeing the available options, you can order directly from the site:

If you order a print, the watermark you see will not appear on the image you receive.  These are only on the site for the protection of my images from internet image pirates.  it is unfortunate, but this is necessary to protect my investment in my images.

Some guidance on navigating my website to ordering art prints:

Select the Album you like under   http://photogenic.zenfolio.com/artprints 
“For June 2015 Vala Show” 
 “Metal Prints” and 
“Meditation Book” contain most of the work that I have showing currently

Choose your image, click the buy button you will be taken to a catalog with options like “prints, downloads, showcase, greeting cards, apparel”
If you want prints on standard professional photo paper – choose prints – you will see a price list including recommendation for what size will best showcase the image with no cropping.
If you want metal, aluminum, canvas, or wall clings, choose “Showcase.”  The “vivid metal” options is larger prints w/ a more expensive printing process.   The “metal prints” option will offer prints on aluminum which will still add a beautiful liquid appearance to your image at a lower price point than the larger metal prints.
“Specialty” offers coasters, mugs and playing cards (and in portrait galleries, books are also offered)
Apparel offers a few t-shirts
You can also purchase blank greeting cards with most of my images.

 

If you do not see the image you want in a format that you want, please contact me with specifics.  I will also try to attach screen shots of the price lists here so that they are all in one place.

click on the price list image below and you will be taken to a full page PDF.  click on the URL in the PDF and it will take you to the Art Gallery

 

June 2015  art print price listArt Print Price List 2015June 2015 price list for unframed prints available on this website. These are the prices for art prints - portraits are different since you will already pay a session fee.   

Floating:  11_28_08_GNC_Squaw CreekFloating: large canvas print 11_28_08_GNC_Squaw CreekFloating - this looks lovely on canvas and metal, which enhances the liquidity of the water. It is also quite nice on good quality photo paper.

We loved photographing down to earth Abbie http://photogenic.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/9/we-loved-photographing-down-to-earth-abbie Today we shot  part 1 of a 2 part senior photo session with Abbie. GNC2014Abbie28Genevieve Casey20140907GNC2014Abbie28Genevieve Casey20140907   I have more to edit but i couldn't resist posting a sneak peek.

She wanted both urban and autumn shots - but her yearbook deadline will be here before the leaves turn - so we solved the problem by scheduling two mini sessions.

 

This is a great solution if you want to capture two different seasons, or you want to shoot at multiple locations - but want to shoot close to sunset or sunrise for each location to get the best light.

 

Session 1 we got done in time for yearbook in the colorful setting of the West Bottoms.  As always, there were lots of photographers roaming the area, and a grouchy man in a van to tell us that no portraits are allowed on one whole block...   Even so, we found plenty of colorful spots for this senior's photos without getting in the way of any other photo shoots.   Abbie was a pleasure to photograph with her super laid back attitude and sense of humor (which runs in her famly by the way.)   I'll be looking forward to session two when the leaves turn in another 4-6 weeks.
