It has taken me a few years to show at an art walk, as most of my prints have lived in galleries. But the desire has certainly persisted. Thanks to the support, patience, and encouragement from my loving partner, I was able to overcome the hurdle of procrastination, and present some gorgeous fine art photographs to my Las Vegas community.
I was so honored and flattered by the comments and feedback I received from visitors to my display, and I met some very nice people who I hope to meet again.

One aspect of the show that I am very grateful to have experienced, was seeing the work and displays of the other photographers. I am pretty happy with my current display, as I only bring limited edition prints, so I don't have much overhead, where I feel the typical M.O. among photographers is to make a whole lot of prints in different sizes and bank on familiar images (images that you've seen in magazines and advertisements). I certainly have a number of images of those familiar locations (Maroon Bells, Mesa Arch, Horseshoe Bend, etc), but I often feel more satisfied with images that I create that can't be confused with someone else's work... images that tell a new story. We'll see how it works out. Beauty is beauty, and people like what they like. I am just very glad that I didn't bring any of my "familiar" southwest images (specifically from Zion), because the images I would have chosen were essentially mirrored in the photography display across from mine.
That being said, I wouldn't mind having more walls, and more various prints on hand...
One step at a time, I suppose.
In the meantime, please enjoy the current limited edition prints that are available. Not all of these are able to be shown at the art walk, but they are all available for delivery. If you mention the art walk for your order, I will extend the "Free shipping" promotion I am extending to the visitors of my display. Ordering limited edition, signed prints is currently limited to direct communication with me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Of course, you can always purchase unlimited editions of my work, with the convenience of size and material selection, at www.navandale.com.
