    I'm sooo jealous of you guys. You have that blue sky out there. I don't think we have a sky that clear mostly for the bigger trees. The only place close would be out on hatteras island where you can see the sky. Hope I get to see it when I am out there next week.

    Great photos Joey.

    You do realize that in photo #5 there is a burnt out lamp in the path light located in the left side of the driving circle garden! :laugh:

    I know, I know... how picky can a guy get? :)

    I have a project I finished off late last season that I did not have enough time to photograph. As soon as the foliage is out here I will be back to shoot it. Then I will have something new to show you.

    Winter does put a cramp in one's ability to capture the work.

    Last year, I got so freaking busy, I (again) did not get out to take many photos. It is a sin I know... but to be honest, I haven't had the need to really show a portfolio in some time. Instead of relying upon a photo portfolio I have found that it works much better to entertain the prospective client and then take them on a live walk through of a neighbour. This seems to be a much better approach for me in securing those challenging jobs and it builds a very nice rapport and trust between the client and myself. I have learned that ultimately, my clients are purchasing a professional relationship as much as they are buying a system. It might not work for all in every market, but it sure does work for me... and it is a lot of fun this way too.

    Here's one without my signature blue sky. Had to be respectful of the city lights view when lighting this project.
