Koch Fine Art Photography: Blog https://www.ernestkoch.com/blog 120 72 Exhibitions Galore! https://www.ernestkoch.com/blog/2024/1/exhibitions-galore Hello Everyone.  It's been a while since I checked in here and there has been a lot happening.  I closed the year with four art exhibitions, the most exciting of which was "Expressive Abstractions."  Check out the great video here... Zenfolio | Ernest T. Koch Fine Art Photography | Expressive Abstractions Exhibition - 12/23 (ernestkoch.com)   

Suzan Gottshall and I had a private studio exhibition (with guest artist Marissa McManus "Floral Finesse") for the entire month of December.  I had 90 pieces in the Exhibition and was pleased to sell 2 framed pictures and 8 prints.  In this economy (and it has been a tough year for all), I consider that an outstanding result.  More than sales, it was such an honor to have so many people come to see my work.  Josh Woodroffe hosted the show at his pixelMIGHT Studio with our sincere thanks and appreciation.

I also had 3 pieces juried in the prestigious Exhibit B Gallery "Winter Show," 4 pieces at the LBH Gallery, and 2 pieces in the Second to Nun Framery Gallery.  Busy, busy, busy!

Lots more coming up with LBH, Show Some HeART, and more.  Stay tuned.

Looking ahead, I would love to see another purchase (or more) at the AOB Exhibition and...

On February 6th, I will be happy to include two of my pieces in the "Show Some HeART 125 Exhibition" at The Gallery at Lower Bucks Campus.  I was pleased to not only have sales at prior events but also be awarded "Best in Photography" twice. Such an honor! Looking forward to another great event.  The Gallery at Lower Bucks Campus | Bucks County Community College

New Year - New Beginning https://www.ernestkoch.com/blog/2023/1/new-year---new-beginnings First ... Happy New Year!  I hope this new year brings good health, prosperity, love and happiness to you all!

Last year, we downsized to a lovely townhome in Perkasie. We were blessed to celebrate our first Christmas with the family there (2022).  As we begin the new year (a first, as well), we look forward to continuing to fill this home with love and lots of my photos :>).  The picture over the fireplace is one of mine. My wife plans to change it with the season.  Lucky thing she is married to a photographer.  Summer, Spring, Fall, Winter ...I've got it covered.

Juried-In the Prestigious Philadelphia Sketch Club "Art of the Flower" 2021 Exhibition https://www.ernestkoch.com/blog/2021/4/juried-in-the-prestigious-philadelphia-sketch-club-art-of-the-flower-2021-exhibition Great News!  I entered 8 photographs (10 were allowed) for consideration for inclusion in the prestigious Philadelphia Sketch Club "Art of the Flower Exhibition."  I knew that the maximum number of photographs that could be accepted for the Exhibition was 4 (if the judge considered them worthy of being juried-in) and I was hopeful that one or more would make it.  I gotta tell you, I was seriously excited when I was advised that 4 of my photographs (the maximum possible) were accepted!  What an honor!  I didn't win the best photograph in this contest.  Cheryl Bomba, a highly-respected and seriously-talented photographer friend did; but, I was really honored to be included in the company of such great artists and photographers.  I take that as a treasured win.  The virtual exhibition runs from April 25th to May 25th.  Stop in and see some outstanding work.

This is it! My photography website is live today. https://www.ernestkoch.com/blog/2021/3/this-is-it-my-photography-website-is-live-today Blog | E T Koch

Well, this is it! My fine art photography website is finally finished!  There are some odds and ends yet to be done (it's a lot of pictures to title, caption, and keyword!!); but, for all intents and purposes, the website is finished and I am thrilled to be able to share it with you.

So, you might ask, "What is Fine Art Photography?"  By definition, fine art photography is photography created in line with the vision of the photographer as artist, using photography as a medium for creative expression. In practice, it is just something I do. I see beyond the image I am capturing and I translate what I see into the picture I "make." 
Many years ago, I was inspired by the words of renowned fine art photographer, Ansel Adams. He said, "You don't take a photograph. You make it."  Yes, that's what I endeavor to do. I hope, as you look through my galleries, you like what I have "made". 

Please subscribe to my Blog to keep up with what's happening at Ernest T Koch Fine Art Photography. Stay tuned ...and, again, thank you so much for being here.

Ernie
