What do you think?
I’ll save my opinion for later…
... is the answer when asked Why? Hiking, Running, Family time. Do we need any other excuse?

Out little company shot it’s first road race on the weekend. If you ran the race, we probably have a shot of you. Take a look! Buy an inexpensive download or print or button or whatever! Lots to choose from!
I’ve been learning and shooting. A lot. Photographing Calgary. a lot. at night.
Check me out. anywhere really.
Well, 2012 was pretty much the exact opposite. Not much writing, but tons of living! We did so many amazing things this year!
I still read and follow all of you, It’s just that I can barely keep up with all my life things, let alone write or respond about it!
I have a Photography website: www.NeilZellerPhotography.com where you can purchase my stuff. I started taking some really unique pictures of a bridge here in Calgary and all of a sudden became a bit of a popular photographer. Nothing mind bending, but I have actually made some decent money as a hired gun in recent months. follow along at my Facebook page too!
I have a calendar of said bridge available here. Have a look. Buy one. It’s accurate and has no Mayan anything on it.
Other than that, my day job is fine, my home life is great and things are only looking better each day!
I met so many cool people! I was in awe of the great people involved in the art show I was a part of on Friday.
Tammy W from www.LimeLighter.ca threw a wicked party for us all. Live music, incredible ambiance, cool artists, and me.
Mandy Stobo is plain ol’ Rad. She paints bad portraits, really good too. Her large art is pretty much the opposite of my photography. Messy, random, and freaky. and. oh. so. cool. Bad Portraits is even cooler than that too. You can send her your face and she will make it bad.
Jo Luke Giles is really low key and completely incredible using whatever he can get his hands on to make his art.
And also me.
The venue was really great. Village Brewery is at least 33% responsible for my meteoric rise to fame in my own mind, as they host these really cool Wednesday meet and greets that I attended 1 of a while ago, that day I met all the people I now cohort with in the art and photography world. And I am completely in love with their Village Blacksmith beer that I drink from a growler. Drinking my beer from a growler makes me at least 47% cooler in my own mind.
I sold some of my pictures too. Bonus! I was happy just being included in the incredibly hip crowd that was brave and rad enough brave the blizzard happening outside.
Total success for my very first art show!
Sunday Traci and I rented a booth in the Fort Calgary Artisan Fair. She with her amazingly glamorous jewellery and me with my images. Almost no one showed up for this Fair, but the ones who did came straight to our booth and bought something. In a craft fair where most vendors never covered the cost of the table rental, we were floating in dollar bills! Woot for us! We rock! say us.
Oh yeah. I bought a ridiculously cool paisley jacket that helped propagate the idea that I am cooler than I am. It worked! Fool’d em’ all!
Oh, and this was the large canvas print. that bad boy is 5’ tall!
It was very popular and probably 63% responsible for me selling what I sold!
Oh, Friday night there was commerce happening for the first 3 hours of the Event and the last 2 hours was pure party! It was a fantastic evening!
I have the utmost and humbling pleasure of sharing the stage that evening with the ballooning famousness of Mandy Stobo. In my head I hope this parlays into more sales for me, but being it is my very first show I have
high no expectations. The publicity can’t be bad. Well, unless of course it’s bad publicity. Then it would be bad.
I started to drag and drop my favourite photos from my large catalogue into a separate folder. So far there are 996 images in there. And I have only gone back to May of this year. I need to pare this down to about 25 key images to print and mat (or frame) in various sizes, along with some loose prints for sale.
I also need to choose an image tonight to have blown up to a 40”x60” Canvas Gallery Print. I am pretty sure it will be this one.
But I’m torn. Maybe this one.
Or what about something like this?
Could be this too?
hmmm… maybe this…
Anyway, if you are around on Friday night, feel free to drop by Village Brewery for some Live Music, Local Art and Great Beers! I will be the one sweating bullets, doubled over in abdominal pain from the anxiety attack that I can feel building up inside me… Here is the event on Facebook.
