Just follow these simple steps: 1.- Plus the post.2.- Share the post publicly in your own stream.3.- Please leave a comment so I am fully aware of your participation.4.- Please follow me (if you haven't reached the 5000 limit already!)PLEASE READ:1.- I am promoting and sharing this circle in my stream so, please do the same from your side.2.- In order to keep "The Gathering Circle" as "clean" as possible from spammers, agressive business pages or profiles who don't share anything else but spam, ads or just circles please be aware that I will directly remove and block anybody asking for inclusion and meeting any of these cases:A) Your profile mostly has circles. I'd like to include in my circles people who, at least have something to say or post, I can't understand why a profile just post circles and nothing else, not a single picture, opinion or whatever, please say something, I'd like to see there's a person behind the profile.B) Your page or profile mostly has spam links to some kind of business where they you lend money or stuff like that.C) Your page or profile mostly doesn't have anything else but spam, ads or links to commercial sites.People creating and selling their own stuff like their own Porcelain or Ceramic creations will still perfectly fit in the circle, I like promotingartists creating their own stuff, that is what we photographers also do anyway. I just want to keep away the spammers who flood our streams with lots of annoying ads and we all know how these profiles look like. ;-)Thank you very much indeed for your friendship and cooperation ;-)#gatheringcircle   #thegatheringcircle         #circleshare       #circlesharing         #circleoftheday   #handpicked         #sharedcircles         #sharedcircle       #sharedpubliccircles     #fullcircleshare         #addmetoyourcircles     #circleoftheday     #bestsharedcircle         #thebestcirclesongoogle     #thebestcircle     #circles         2014-04-14 12:55:38402163142165CC G+
Gailen Mapes62,544Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  W-Z - 13 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes2014-04-13 10:42:2291205CC G+

Margaret Tompkins101,687>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 25,000 FollowersThe photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes.  There are NO requirements to share this circle.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  Each profile has been verified by me.  Most have < 25,000 followers (when they were put into the circle).  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  I have included myself in the circle and also the landscape page.  Some are fairly new to G+ so please make them feel welcome!!Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography  #LandsacapePhotography theme.  If you want to impress me, that’s the place to do it!!  Post a great landscape that will get my attention.  See the About tab for all the details.I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!There’s a really great photographer XXX that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people but please only one.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you!A while back, I had a wonderful discussion about circles with +Robin Griggs Wood and +Charles Lupica .  If you don't know them, then let me introduce you to two of the finest people here on G+!    Charles is a master of monochrome!!  Robin is a master of everything and a mentor to all of us!!  Did you know that she speaks seagull!!   I hope that both Robin and Charles will look you all over and give you a share!  There aren't many quality vetted circles shared on G+.  I'm proud to say that this is one of them!!#Circleshare   #Sharedcircles  2014-02-16 03:26:0247725963163CC G+

"M"
Brooklyn, NY

Here's another one from my local wanderings last week. Unlike the previous image, "O" (goo.gl/Iubf4b), "M" called for a reduced tonal range with a delicate presentation. This probably won't be combined with "O" for that diptych I spoke about. They both enjoy their peaceful isolation.

"O"

A beautiful rock I spotted while roaming the coastline of the Lower NY Bay near my apartment yesterday. The shape of this rock reminds me of a place called "Petra Tou Omirou" from my father's hometown in Greece. According to legend, Petra Tou Omirou, or Homer's Rock, is the teacher's chair from which Homer taught his students. The "O" is short for Omiro (Homer), so I felt it appropriate to choose a harmonious centered treatment on this one.

"O" will most likely be part of a diptych, displayed alongside another image with a similar minimal composition. The second image is almost done, so stay tuned!

"O" is on my website for those who are interested in prints.

Anaïs
Bandon, OR

Spent some time working on a new image this weekend and along with it, I thought I'd share a quote I came across recently by an author named Anaïs Nin. It goes, "We do not see things as they are, we see them as we are." After a fair bit of self-reflection this winter, Anaïs' quote is a gentle reminder that we should really love ourselves and see beauty within in order to appreciate everything around us and reconcile the complexities of the outside world.

Among Gods
Three Arch Rocks National Wildlife Refuge, Oceanside, OR

Well folks, I've been trying to figure things out for myself lately, searching for inspiration and artistic vision. In case you haven't heard, the very generous +Ivan Makarov and +Andy Lee are publishing a new version of Plus One Collection. This has caused me to come out of my brief hibernation stage. 

"Among Gods" is my submission to the new book - it's an image I created after I began +Joel Tjintjelaar's workshop last summer. It was well-received at the time, but I'm using it because it represents an intentional stylistic/artistic shift from my image published in last year's book. Gone (for now) is my obsession with bridges, buildings, and tunnels; inspiring me more than anything today is the beauty of the natural world. We recently took a trip to Sedona,Arizon... more »

Thank You For A Great 2013!

I want to quickly thank all of my friends on here for their amazing support this year. I began 2013 as a straight-laced financial analyst and ended it a photographer pursuing his dream (still straight-laced though!). If it wasn't for the inspiring community on G+, FB, Instagram, Stark Magazine, 1x, etc, I would have never mustered up the courage to change career paths and test this dream of mine. I can't thank you all enough for giving me the fuel to push myself during this journey.

+Peggy Richardson and I will be launching our local photography business, 11Pine Photography, next week (please look out for the announcement or scroll back to last week when we posted teasers!), but God-willing, I'll also continue to grow as an artist working extra hard to cultivate, develop, and hone my artistic vision.

As a reminder, all... more »

Devilkat Tripod Spikes!

I'm loving my new support gear (picked up a Really Right Stuff BH-55 ballhead and TVC-33 tripod legs), but I was in need of a set of spikes for shifty terrain, so instead of paying $100 for the RRS or Gitzo versions, I worked with my future father-in-law to fabricate a custom set of vicious red spikes that would work wonders with my sticks :)

I'm calling them Devilkat Spikes by Richardson Industries.

All I Want For Christmas Is You.

What's on YOUR Christmas list this year? Frankly, I'm just happy to be spending the holidays with my fiancée, +Peggy Richardson. Lucky for me, she was agreeable to a quick portrait session while we were driving around scouting for foggy photo ops :)

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Dance of the River Ghosts 
Estacada, Oregon 

Having a blast spending Christmas with +Peggy Richardson and her family. I haven't done too much landscape shooting as I'm waiting for my new +Joel Tjintjelaar edition filters to arrive, but here's an image from the other day of the local Clackamas River with a blanket of fog over the water which dampened down the details and added some moodiness to the scene :)

With 28 minutes left in the day on the West coast, I'm sharing this with the super cool Christmas edition of  #minimalmonday  by +Olivier Du Tré because to me, scenes like this are just cozy (fog creates a wonderful silence and adds thickness to the air...mmm), and that is exactly what the holidays should be - cozy and spent with family (pardon the spooky/moody title which is very un-Christmas-like, but I couldn't resist).

Teddy The Thunderbear

Hi guys, I'm asking for your favor in supporting my brother's Kickstarter project. The image below shows one of his motivational art pieces that's being included with a $150 pledge. It's called a Bear Box, and is inspired by Teddy The Thunderbear, the main character in his storybook project.

Please help him launch Volume 1 of Teddy The Thunderbear here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2056548064/tttb-teddy-the-thunderbear

We're Starting a Portrait and Wedding Photography Business!

I know that I've been absent a bit lately, but +Peggy Richardson and I have been hard at work on forming our new photography business. We'll be specializing in portraits and events, and I really can't wait to launch! Here's a teaser image from a wedding that we shot a few weeks ago. 

Details (business name, website, logo, & pricing) will be posted in the next couple of weeks, so please stay tuned! 

Peggy thinks that my "king of darkness" profile picture needs to go in favor of something a bit more cheerful, but my intention is to continue putting out my fine art photography under Simos Xenakis and the business will go under its own name. As for my G+ profile, I might create a new name/page for the photography business, or (haven't decided) I'll just shareph... more »

Hey guys, been a little busy shooting people rather than landscapes & buildings lately :) With permission, I'll be posting some of those in the near future, but in the meantime, I thought I'd reshare my photo essay of last year's Hurricane Sandy in honor of the 1-year anniversary. Even though my area was not hit extremely hard, there are still signs of the storm as the waterfront has not been completely repaired yet. Crazy, I'll never forget that day.

Two Nights In Bandon (I)
Bandon, Oregon

I'll be sharing a series of images taken on my last trip to Oregon, during which we spent some time photographing the coastal town of Bandon. If you've never visited Bandon, I'd highly encourage it. Not only are the monoliths/sea stacks super creepy but the atmosphere out there does some fascinating things that give the entire place a surreal mood. The great thing about Bandon is that the weather conditions change very quickly. Normally, this could be a bad thing, but I see it as a great opportunity to vary your shots throughout the day.

I received four Honorable Mentions at the 2013 International Photography Awards (IPA 2013)!

Pretty amazing news for me. I'm especially stoked because everything I submitted got something!

My 'Among Gods' series was recognized in the Self-Promotion Category, while 'A Touch' made Self-Promotion and Fine Art Landscape. 'The One' was recognized in the Architecture - Buildings category.

I wish I could sit here tagging all of my fellow photogs who won awards & honorable mentions, but instead, I'll send out one huge CONGRATS! The competition was seriously good. I'm insanely inspired!

Plus One Magazine Issue 2

"Off Duty" is my submission for Plus One Magazine Issue 2 for +Ivan Makarov, +Andy Lee, and the Photographers For Good Foundation.

Why does this represent home for me?
Ever since I began to narrow my focus as a photographer, I've felt most at home shooting b&w architecture, landscapes, and seascapes.

I really love architecture, but shooting buildings can be hectic and stressful, especially in NYC! You are constantly battling foot traffic, neck pain, and security officers trying to chase you off their "private property" (the public sidewalk)!

Great landscapes require planning/scouting, good timing, and a fair bit of hiking/exploration! That can be a lot of work!

Seascapes in particular give me the most peace and make me feel at home. Facing the ocean allows me to escape from... more »

Hermes The Messenger
Tolovana Beach State Park, Cannon Beach, OR

Hermes The Messenger is the second photo from my series, Among Gods. Like the leading image posted last week (http://goo.gl/5eSLb), this photo was also taken on the Oregon Coast during my recent trip in June.

As promised, I'm continuing the dark, mythical, mystical, and magical theme and once again, I've used the incredible techniques that I'm learning in +Joel Tjintjelaar's B&W masterclass. I've been so fortunate to  receive instruction from Joel, not only for the post-processing side of things, but because he has taught me the importance of translating vision into an end result.

And now for the themes!

A Memory
Tolovana Beach State Park, Cannon Beach, OR

This is the second image from my series 'For Ages To Come.' It's a departure from my darker, moodier work (e.g., Among Gods) and is intended to be more airy and uplifting. The first image, "A Touch," was shared back in July (http://goo.gl/qlcJl1). I hope you like the progression!

Instagram, anybody?
(I'm feeling chatty today.)

Two months ago, I made a vow to stop being a lazy photographer. I said I would do less posting on Instagram and more DSLR work. Since then I've formed a different opinion about Instagram and laziness. Today I shoot with my DSLR all of the time but I'm utilizing Instagram differently. Since I always carry my phone with me, I snap photos while waiting on my long exposures :-) For one, that helps me pass the time while I wait for my exposure. Secondly, it allows me to find my next shot or PoV. This is great because it forces me to stay aware of my surroundings and shooting environment. This photo is a good example because I was in the middle of a 5-minute exposure (which made little sense considering the cloud conditions on this day) and as I looked around, I noticed a really awesome contrail streaking across the sky.

As I Journey Through... (my circles)
Cape May, NJ

A few things come to mind...

1) It's so amazing to discover breathtaking artists who were once buried in a circle of 4,000 "Photographers" and to be able to move them into a "Hand-Picked" circle of great artists. Back story: When I first started here on G+, I blindly added almost every circle share I came across, but ... ::breathe:: ... I have finally started the arduous process of going through, person-by-person, to develop a beautifully aesthetic and coherent stream of Simos-approved photography for my viewing pleasure :)

2) I really wish people would utilize that G+ option to remove duplicate posts from their profile when they post something to both the stream and also to communities. I just came across a photographer who had some nice work, but the same picture showed up 30... more »

Off Duty
Cape May, NJ

Pardon my brief hiatus. After working on IPA submissions last month, I needed a break from editing. We took a vacation to Cape May, NJ (where this photo was taken), came back, relaxed for a bit, and got my fiancée baptized :) I guess you can say I was "Off Duty" ...but now I'm back with lots of new images to edit!

Artemis The Huntress
Arcadia Beach State Park, Arch Cape, OR

Here's the final image in my series, "Among Gods." It's been an interesting challenge to put out a series and keep all of the images looking like they belong together. I think this one most closely resembles Hermes The Messenger (http://goo.gl/ei7Uf) which means I will probably go back and tweak Heracles The Gatekeeper (http://goo.gl/ei7Uf) to be more in line. In fact, I'll probably go back and fine tune everything to make sure it's all buttoned-up and cohesive.

In terms of story, I'm happy with the result! The series was intended to represent being among gods (see my leading image, Among Gods, here: http://goo.gl/ei7Uf), and each photo is a glimpse into the character's personality, similar to an intimate portrait session with an A-list celebrity who normally... more »

A Touch
Cannon Beach, OR

I decided to take a break from my dark series to start on something more airy and uplifting. This one will be part of a high key series called "For Ages To Come." It will represent the fragile and short-lived time that humans spend on Earth contrasted against the enduring nature of monoliths. The titles are a representation of our passing memories during this brief stay. 

Many thanks again to +Joel Tjintjelaar for teaching me some amazing techniques and advising me to focus on a style, subject, or genre in order to grow creatively.

Thanks also to all of the great supporters here on G+! You guys encourage me to keep this dream alive.

And now for the themes!

La Défense Study II - Tour EDF, La Défense Paris

As some of you might have noticed my latest 3 or 4 architectural images are different from my previous successful and award winning series from the past few years. Reason: I always try to keep moving, and never stand still, even if it means you have to leave a successful concept.
To quote Mark Twain: to stand still is to fall behind.
I'm not saying I'm going to change and revolutionize the world of architectural fine art photography, absolutely not. I'm just saying I'm changing myself, once again. Subtle but important changes in my view to keep growing and never get bored of myself and my work.
What you see since a few months and what you will see in the future is a combination of the fine art architectural photography I've done for the past few years and the more technical, sterile and conventionala... more »

Heracles The Gatekeeper
Arcadia Beach State Park, Arch Cape, OR

Here's Heracles The Gatekeeper, the third photo from my series titled "Among Gods." Like the other images in the series, this shot was also taken off the coast of Oregon last month.

The techniques I'm learning in +Joel Tjintjelaar's B&W masterclass are really enabling me to think creatively about what my final result looks like. I feel that I no longer have bottlenecks in putting out an interesting image. The class is nearing an end, but these are tools I'll carry with me for the rest of my life/career!

Can I have your vote...(link below)...?!

First, thank you to Stark Magazine for featuring my photo on the back cover of Issue #15 of the publication! I'm always blown away by Stark artists and it's a huge honor to be published!

Secondly, can I solicit your vote for a chance to be featured in a TV commercial...?! 

It slipped my mind that the *deadline for voting in the first round expires in three days!" At Fine Art America, I'm a little fish in a huge sea of talented artists. As such, my photo is one of thousands entered in the competition, so I still need over 200 to make it into the judging round. 

Can I do it in three days? I would be FOREVER grateful if I can have your vote. Thank you!!

Among Gods
Symons State Park, Oceanside, OR

This is the leading image of a new series I'm working on that will consist of coastal monoliths photographed during my trip to Oregon last week. As with much of my recent work, I used many of the techniques I'm learning in +Joel Tjintjelaar's B&W masterclass - which are amazing.

I have to say, this was the first time I actively thought about design and vision when taking and post-processing a photo. Big thanks to Joel for that. Joel also suggested that I pick a specific focus of subject, style, or genre to practice on, so you will definitely see some recurring themes in the upcoming series. If you like a combination of dark, mythical, mystical, and magical, stay tuned!

So excited that my copy of Plus One Collection 2012 arrived. I had some issues with the shipping but +Ivan Makarov was a superstar in sorting it all out. Thanks so much for your prompt responses and amazing service, Ivan!

I have to say that the images are incredibly inspiring. I don't even know how I made it into this book, but I'm so glad to have this beautiful source of inspiration hanging around my apartment.

If you're interested in picking up a copy, please see the link below as the book is on sale today for only $74 if shipped within the US / $99 shipped outside of the US - a steal.

The One
Flatiron, NY, NY

I've been learning some great new editing techniques in +Joel Tjintjelaar's B&W masterclass and after only a few days, I feel like my abilities have grown substantially. 

This photo is titled the same as an Instagram photo I posted a while back of the same Flatiron view/composition, except this one was taken with my DSLR with a lot of editing hours behind it. 

So far, my recent "life change" has really allowed me to focus on photography. I've learned, I've grown, I've been taking less photos with my phone and posting less on IG, and I've sold two prints  OK, I might not be getting rich, but I feel more and more fulfilled each day as I learn and grow as a photographer!

Note New Job Title - PHOTOGRAPHER

Today was my first day on the new job! I am now a proud employee of simosxenakis.com. 

Yes. I decided to make a big change in my life and pursue my passion 100%. Ever since I got into photography 18 months ago, it's been a huge part of my life. Nearing an obsession at times, let's just say it was a distraction. During that time, I was trying to push my professional career as a financial analyst and I quickly realized something about myself - I can't handle too much at once. I don't want to be okay at a few things. I'd rather be excellent at one thing. I also don't want any regrets about lost opportunities...

Back in December, I got a promotion at Coty, and although it was exactly what I wanted (certainly what I asked for), it wasn't right. It wasn't photography. Beyond that, my new job demanded morea... more »
