As summer 2017 gets underway tomorrow, want to share a little about what projects I've been working on and where you can find me (and my work) in the next few months.
1-- The Catskill Art Society in Livingston Manor has a members exhibit opening May 27 and running through June 25. I have a piece on exhibit and hope you check out all the great local artists.
2 -- I am helping to curate an exhibit opening June 16 at the Liberty Museum and Art Gallery. The theme is "Barns of the Catskills." It will include photos, paintings, architectural drawings and more.
4-- I am shooting for two great local businesses: The Fosterdale Motor Lodge, which will have a new website up in a few weeks, and The Fat Lady Cafe in Kauneonga Lake, where I am shooting delicious dishes, kitchen and dining scenes and more for their Facebook page. You can also find me shooting the local music scene, sports and other community events.
5-- Rich Klein New York Photography just shot a fun newborn photography session with a lovely family from Liberty, NY. They were smart to choose the historic Stone Arch Bridge in Kenoza Lake as a backdrop. Once I get client clearance, hope to post a few proofs.
6-- Since April, I've been a freelance photographer and reporter for the Sullivan County Democrat. Many don't know that I started my career as a political writer/editor and later as a daily newspaper sports writer. But now I get to shoot and write -- and it's been a blast. And really looking forward to photographing two significant Memorial Day parades/events - one in Liberty and the other in Wurtsboro.
7-- With many flea markets and farmer's markets opening this weekend, I expect to be selling photographs and possibly some books throughout the summer around Sullivan County. Visit Rich Klein and Rich Klein New York Photography as well as The Catskills of Sullivan County on Facebook for my schedule. And I would love to meet anyone who has bought my books online..so please get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can meet and so I can thank you with a discount on prints. I'd be honored as well to sign books and prints.
