Drink and Click NYC522UPDATEContrary to the posted map (which will be updated most likely by time you read this), we'll be meeting at Jane's Carousel around 3pm and then proceed to shoot around DUMBO, Brooklyn Bridge Park and the Promenade. I just heard back from the Navy Yard and they only do guided tours on specific dates and reBar is closed weekends for private events during the summer. Sorry for any inconvenience!***********************************************So as promised, here goes the official July Drink and Click event. Let's continue with our 'out of manhattan' kick and check out the awesomeness that is DUMBO! Thinking we catch DUMBO while its light, grab a drink at reBar, move on to the carousel, Pier 1 (cuz the Brookyn Ice Cream Factory is there, yeah!) and the promenade for sunset, walk the bridge during blue hour and catch our final drink at the Watermark. Down below is a link to a map for our itinerary. Still working on the Navy Yard so that's as yet TBD. Check it out, grab your gear and let's rock the BK!Welcome to the #11 Drink and Click ™ July's Chapter Wide Photography ChallengeIMPORTANT INFORMATION:To be eligible for this month's Drink and Click ™ challenge attendees need do the following: (If you win a prize and your stream does not show you completed the sponsor mention your prize will be forfeited)  - We love our sponsors.

I don't know about you but summer is a crazy time for me. It doesn't matter where you live your city should have a typical event that happens during summer time. A festival, kite competition, people swimming or boating. You can have your lead schedule your event around those locations which can give you the best Photo opportunities. Go ahead Google "Summer" images and see which image can serve you as inspiration.  Here, I Google that for you http://tinyurl.com/mbygpj2Challenge Rules:-Images must be taken on a Drink and Click ™ event during the month of July-Three images per person max-The images must be submitted into this event page-No WATERMARKS (This is mainly to remain anonymous during judging).We will select the top 5 or 6 images.

#MetallicMonday1,147I meant to do this for a while, but finally thought about doing it enough in advance this week ;) So anyway to get to the point. I think it is long overdue that the page gets a decent cover photo. While I can try to take one myself I thought it'd be a lot more fun if we make it an event and then decide which to use. So anyway if you have a photo, which you think would fit, and don't mind me using as a cover of course, then just put a link in the comments here - or add it to the event .. although I think if you "normally" share with the page and #MetallicMonday  and put a link to the post in the comments here it probably makes more sense.#MetallicMonday needs a cover photo2013-05-26 12:00:0010G+

The pictures must show yourself in a reflection. No matter whether your reflection is shown through a mirror, a window, some water on the road or any surface that can reflect yourself. There is no need to be recognized in your picture, you can reflect any part of your body. Try to find funny surfaces or elements where you can be reflected and just have fun taking part! ;-)Who will be the winners? Ok, trying to be fair no matter how many followers, plusses or shares you have and also taking into account your kind suggestions,  I have decided to invite 2 or 3 photographers from my circles who I think they produce quality pictures to help me judge the best works. The contest will end the 4th of November this year 2012.I will create a circle of winners with the 10 best photographers in this contest and I will share it in my stream. (Sorry, I know is not much but is better than nothing I guess and there's nothing else I can offer! ;-)  ). Of course I am opened to any suggestion from you all to make the contest as fair as possible. ;-)Finally, the most important thing... have fun and enjoy taking your pictures and sharing them with us! ;-) Cheers!Photography Contest - My Reflection - By Gorka Ortiz.2012-10-04 19:00:00138G+

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 July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."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 +2014-07-13 11:58:3981406CC G+

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 May 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting April 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 Mapes2014-05-13 10:19:1589425CC G+

In parallel I am building a new circle that I started a month ago. In a months time the people in the new circle will be shared. The old one will be kept as reference to add people that return after a longer break.  I use  #Circloscope premium to help me manage, but the rotation from the old circle to the new is the only way people gets kicked out. http://www.circloscope.com/2013/04/google-plus-circle-management-tool.html +CircloscopeA bit of caution here, I do NOT check the quality of what my engagers share. They are here since they are appreciating my photos. You have to do your own selection after importing the circles.Please let me know if you somehow slipped through my masks.

The old one will be kept as reference to add people that return after a longer break.  I use   #Circloscope premium to help me manage, but the rotation from the old circle to the new is the only way people gets kicked out. http://www.circloscope.com/2013/04/google-plus-circle-management-tool.html +CircloscopeA bit of caution here, I do NOT check the quality of what my engagers share. They are here since they are appreciating my photos. You have to do your own selection after importing the circles.Please let me know if you somehow slipped through my masks. I am doing this in a combined automatic and manual way and I am old enough too know there might be errors. And there have been errors I have discovered. That is really the only thing that bothers me with this circles……..Have a look at this post for even more info on how this circles is made. https://plus.google.com/115491639983481019768/posts/iuYYSLzSH9G ♥♥♥♥ ☀☀☀☀ ♥♥♥♥ ☀☀☀☀ ♥♥♥♥ ☀☀☀☀♥♥♥♥ ☀☀☀☀   #circle #circles   #publiccircle #circleshare #circlesharing #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle   #sharingcircles   2014-02-16 22:32:1540918557CC G+

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!

Fund Raising - selling my prints

Hi everyone, this is something I would not normally do, but I have thought long and hard about it and have decided to share this. 2 weekends ago the most painful thing happened to me while I was out on a photowalk with some visiting photographer friends. While taking a long exposure shot by the coast, a sudden gust of wind blew my tripod, Canon 5D Mark III and 17-40mm lens into the water.  The camera fell and hit the rocks so hard that the lens broke off from the camera body. Everything happened so fast. I had made sure my tripod was steady after the setup unfortunately as I turned to get my filter, in a split second the wind knocked my tripod over, fell a good 6 ft, hitting the rocks. The next thing I knew, my camera was already in the water, I was in a state of shock, stood there helpless as I watched the waves went over the exposed camera body. I... more »

Siletz Bay, Study 2, Lincoln City, Oregon

Here's another image from Siletz Bay, just outside of Lincoln City. It was taken during my recent seascape adventure along the central Oregon coast. I absolutely loved this location and could probably spend a couple of weeks staring at these gorgeous rocks.

Hope you enjoy.

kōzu essence

Really pleased to be part of this project and have my story and image featured alongside other great photographers, +Thibault Roland, +Michael Diblicek, +Julia Anna Gospodarou, and Greg Stewart. Kōzu essence is a new multi-platform project by +kozu books that's all about sharing stories and images about inspiration. The write-ups on the site are great and the images are truly inspirational. I can't wait to see some of this stuff in print.

Siletz Bay, Study 1, Lincoln City, Oregon

I'm finally getting around to editing photos from my recent trip along the Oregon coast. This is the first of a few photographs taken during an amazing session in Siletz Bay, just south of Lincoln City.

Have you guys seen Volume 1 of +kozu books yet???
It is AMAZING.

All B&W long exposure, litho printed on 300gsm paper. It features the work of +Jeff Gaydash, +Joel Tjintjelaar, +Michael Diblicek, +Hengki Koentjoro, and a few others I can't tag. The print quality is just fantastic and the shipping was super fast to the United States.

Even if you are familiar with an artist's work (from websites & social media sharing), I encourage you to buy their work in PRINT. Seeing images printed on beautiful paper (especially at such a high level like this) gives you a whole new appreciation. This book is a great way to get your hands on PRINTED work by some of the best B&W fine art photographers around.

I'm loving the latest G+ update for Android. Don't care much for all the auto-awesomeness or whatever, but the improved image quality on mobile devices is seriously AMAZING. I stopped viewing images on my phone for a while because they just looked like crap compared to FB and the regular website, but the images are now looking sharp and clean with lots of pop.

Thank you, Google.

A glimpse into what I've been up to...

My fiancée, +Peggy Richardson, and I run a local photography business on the side called +11Pine Photography. It's a new thing for us but we're not being too aggressive with our marketing yet. One reason is because I'm trying to maintain a good balance between "for hire" work and my personal passion for fine art photography. So far, I'm happy to say it's working. 

Last week, I spent 6 days on the road shooting seascapes (ugh, I could have done it for 60 days - it was amazing!), but before I left, we shot this adorable newborn in the photo below, and while I was on the road, I was hired to shoot some professional photos at one of the hotels in Lincoln City, Oregon. Pretty cool, right?

In summary, balance is key.
When I left my job to pursue photography, I decided that I would alwaysdo... more »

"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.

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.

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).

NYC is always so special around the holidays, but equally great is spending Christmas with +Peggy Richardson and her family back in cozy Oregon.

As we fly over Michigan en route to Portland, I wanted to wish everyone a happy holidays. I hope you all enjoy your families and stay warm (looking at YOU, NYC... after we spent 2 hours on the runway getting our plane de-iced)!

We'll be back in NYC after New Year's, bellies full, and re-energized to launch our new photography business!

Stay tuned for a teaser sometime next week :-D Take care!

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.

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!!

You can vote for my photo here:

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!

Very pleased to hear that my image "How Many Days 'Til Christmas?" was published in issue #57 of DP Arte Fotográfica out of Portugal. This month, the magazine featured the People & Portraits Facebook group curated by the very talented +Jaycee Crawford and my photo below was part of the feature. Thanks, Jaycee!
