Mon, 27 Feb 2017 02:00:20 -0500Most camera bags, even if not waterproof, will hold off heavy splashes or even submersion better than you think. Don't panic if your bag goes under. Retrieve the equipment and quickly get it out of the wet case before water soaks through. (First published Nov 11, 2015)
Sun, 22 Jan 2017 14:42:20 -0500I've added a few more photos here and there over the past year, including some from a trip to Hawaii in February of 2016. Most exciting to me are my plans for a trip to Cuba in February, dedicated mainly to a photographic exploration of the ever-changing little country. Stay tuned!
Sun, 22 Nov 2015 19:49:23 -0500I've been off the map, photography-wise, for some time. Life's been quite busy (and exciting!) with my professional life developing, our young man growing up (Fin's going to be 4 in February) and various other goings-on. However, on an October family trip to the Oregon Coast, I decided it was high time to dust off the camera lenses once again. And am I ever glad I did! The trip was lots of fun for all, and now I've got 12 new photos (from the trip and the last couple of years) scattered around the site. Enjoy, and let's hope it's not another 2 years until I get out again!
Sat, 31 May 2014 17:42:48 -0400This launch announcement comes a little behind schedule, but better late that never! I'm very excited to introduce the first completely new version of my photography website in over 8 years. It's designed for the modern web, friendly (I hope!) to various devices, screen sizes, and new HD monitors. The new site is less reliant on decorative images and old programming techniques. The layout is cleaner and, I think, displays my photos in a bolder, easier-to-see way than before. Let me know what you think!
Sun, 30 Mar 2014 14:52:00 -0400I recently added a dozen new photos, scattered throughout the galleries. This brings the total number of fine art photos on MarkRaymondMason.com to over 250! It's been well over a decade of work, and I'm proud of my collection. More Black and White galleries will be added as time goes on, but the main Urban and Rural galleries will contain only 60 photos. This means some old favourites will have to move over to make way for new images. Don't worry - nothing will be taken off the site completely: you can always find old photography by perusing the More Photos area.
