Why "Day Six Pix" instead of "John Hartleroad Photography" or something like that?
Well, I'm inspired by Eugene Peterson's account of the Biblical story of Creation in The Message
"God looked over everything he had made: it was so good, so very good! It was evening, it was morning---Day Six." Genesis 1:31
My photography is an appreciation of all these days beyond Day Six. I first experienced the wonder of photography as a college sophomore when a friend showed me how to process black and white film and then to make my very first print. I vividly recall the wonder of that experience. While I could now be classified as an amateur, I have been a professional in the past, having worked for a weekly newspaper, a studio, and an advertising agency. I have studied with several nationally known photographers, including Byron Jorjorian, Jim Clark, John Shaw and Rod Planck. I have been a juried artist of the Prairie Art Alliance
in Springfield, Illinois, and a member of NANPA
, the North American Nature Photographers Association. Currently, I am a member of the Brentwood (Tennessee) Photography Group.
