    I enjoyed reading the responses to my essay.  The most relevant are those by Jeff, Kevin and Terry because they understand I am trying to get photographers to try something different, something they will have to do eventually if they want to photograph specific locations, such as Antelope Canyon, as Jeff pointed out.

    In my upcoming essays I further challenge past assumptions about landscape photography.  Digital photography has opened a world of possibilities that film photography denied me and to use these possibilities it is important that I approach this new medium with an open mind.

    Michael mentioned my approach to marketing.  Here too approaching it with an open mind is important.  Fine art photography has long been an endeavor that generated a low income. It no longer is but for this to become a personal reality a mental change had to happen in me otherwise I would have been trapped into a ‘poor artist,’ ‘buy art because I am starving’ image.

    Things change, in photography and in many other domains.  Personally I am all in.  However I respect the fact that other photographers have a different take on it. I have no problem with it. Creating art is a personal endeavor and I respect the fact that no two photographers are alike.
