If you are looking for my gallery it has moved to www.jammckay.com
George Bernard Shaw once said that sometimes photography is too real. I cling to that statement and it drives in me the conflict that eventually led to this change.
Pure photography is the art of story telling. It doesn’t lie, it is a documentary of that moment in time. Studio or staged photography tells a story of creation and imagination, but it is still real, a documentation of the staged event.
For me, manipulated digital photography is about dreams, what could be. It brings foreign worlds together, bridges time, and alters reality.
I compare pure photography as non-fiction, basically true with a personal slant. Manipulated digital photography is like fiction. They are different and serve different purposes.
As I spend more of my effort in the fictional world of digital manipulation, I no longer feel this domain name of Jamshots Photography is suitable. My gallery that has long resided at this web address has moved to www.jammckay.com. It includes both fiction and non-fiction.
I have grown attached to this URL and I will continue to support this address with new and experimental ideas.
Change is good. Visit me from time to time. I am pursuing some new ideas and I will try them here first. I will continue to update this site with my latest efforts.
Thanks for your continued encouragement.
