Secretary Blenny looking out from it home an evacuated space within a coral.                      Secretary blenny (Acanthemblemaria maria). Blennies take up residence in tiny abandoned holes in coral. Most secretive, they spend most of their time hiding inside or cautiously venturing to the opening of their coral home. They are tiny usually less than 8 cm. long. Bonaire

The Living Seas.

This collection of underwater images made at the premier dive locations in the Caribbean and Florida Keys shows beautiful prints of the vibrant marine life within the Ocean.

Human perception of “out of sight out of mind” is a challenge to our insight into nature.  The oceans and seas are particularly vulnerable to our lack of knowledge because the majority of life beneath the surface is unseen and as a result beyond our consciousness.  This gap of knowledge and understanding is an existential threat not only to the health of the oceans but to our lives, livelihoods, and way of life.

This year, 2018, on the Gulf Coast of Florida a major ecological crisis has surfaced.  From within the waters of the Gulf, countless dead fish surfaced washing onto the pristine white crystalline sands of Siesta beach.  Siesta beach has been recognized as having  “the world’s finest, whitest sand”.

Red Tide has been a phenomenon for more than a hundred years resulting in fish kills.  The Red Tide this year has resulted in an extraordinary number of dead fish plus dead turtles, sharks, and dolphins. This year’s red tide event is historic and deadly serious.  It is a serious threat to marine life, human life, and economics.

For those of us experiencing this deadly event, it has been depressing.  I’ve curated a collection of underwater images I made in the Gulf, Florida Keys and Caribbean which are full of life and beauty.  They are offered to show what a Living Sea looks like and to uplift our spirit.

You’re invited to an opening showcasing these prints October 27, 11 am to 4 pm at my gallery Eastep Photography, 1338 Central Avenue, Sarasota, Florida 34236.

Interior Kiva at spruce tree house Mesa Verde CO

Sacred Light

Ancestral Puebloans built Spruce Tree House around A.D. 1200.  It was re-discovered in 1888, and is the third largest cliff dwelling in Mesa Verde National Park. This Cliff Dwelling housed somewhere around 60 to 80 people. This is a view from inside one of the 8 Kivas found at Spruce Tree House. Kivas are subterranean structures that were most likely used for spiritual ceremonies. 

This image is one of 12 prints in the collection “Art Within Architecture” on exhibit at Eastep Photography Gallery,  1338 Central Avenue, Sarasota, Florida, 34234.  The prints can be viewed on Saturday, September 29, 2018, between 11 am and 4 pm.  The Gallery is also open by appointment.  Call 917.675.0640 or write WayneEastep@Gmail.com

Persona

A portrait should represent your likeness and evoke your emotional energy.
That is my goal when making your portrait.
I  think of your portrait as being an image representing the outside and inside of you.  A single image if made with focus and connection can be a true representation of your persona. However, no manner how successful the single image is it will not represent the whole truth of who you are because you are way too complex.  At the moment the photograph is made you may be open and the still image can communicate that openness.  You may also be quiet, cautious, and have wit, chances are the single picture will not communicate all of those aspects of your persona.  When making your portrait I will guide you to being present in the moment and not get concerned about trying to show all the aspects of your persona.  Let’s be satisfied with getting one image that reflects who you are.
When you open your spirit and allow your energy to move and I focus my attention and spirit we can connect in 125th of a second to create an image that communicates your persona.
My Portrait Studio is located in downtown Sarasota at 1338 Central Avenue, Sarasota, FL 34236.  I’ve put a lot of intention into creating a space that is warm, comfortable and safe with the goal that you will feel good about having your portrait made.  I look forward to working with you to “capture” your persona. 
To schedule a time to make your portrait contact me; WayneEastep@Gmail.com  or call 917.675.0640.
