Texas Photographic Society
The Texas Photographic Society invited me to be one of five featured photographers in their 2018 Print Program. I created a Special Edition of 25 mounted & matted prints of my image titled, Jornada del Muerto. I was honored to be included in this fine group of photographers and to be added to the list of past participants of this program.
MoMaZoZo at the Carrizozo Colony in Carrizozo, New Mexico. I was privileged to live/work and immerse myself in this wonderful art community in Central New Mexico
In late 2016 a group of five photographers based in the Southwestern Border area came together to informally discuss their personal projects and aesthetic directions. As a result of those gatherings it became apparent that, although the individual work was quite different, there was a common thread of exploration and approach to expressing each ones’ personal narrative. Expansion V celebrates the diversity and quality of Emmitt Booher, Paul Schranz, Storm Sermay, Sirous Partovi and James Rodgers work. The exhibition was curated by Emmitt Booher.

High and Dry XIV
A photographic exhibition of peoples & places of the world’s dry lands
November 23-January 25, 2017
Juror: Amy Holmes George
First Place Award-"Jornada del Muerto"
"Your photograph is simply stunning. It is the quintessential "high and dry" image. I was struck by the grand sense of scale and how I felt as if I was floating high above the landscape. The many layers of information offer so much to the eye. And, even the choice to print the image in black and white seems to convey a sense of "dryness" . . .
