    One of the top Photographers in the country bought two of my knives and came out to my shop to pick them up as he lives just a bit over an hour away. He was pretty amazed by the stone in my shop and has spent several days in the shop with me so far. He has even been taking stone home with him to photograph.

    I traded two more knives and my hours of work for signed photos he prints onto canvas with the photo area being 13 x 19 inches.

    I also have over 100 photos he has given to me to use any way I choose so I am going to try to post some here as they are amazing. He is also going to modify his website to add a section for stone from my shop but probably not until he gets back from the South Georgia Islands photographing the King Penguins in October.

    Here is his website and hopefully I will be able to link to the stone photgraphs in a couple of months!

    This first photo is Dinosaur Bone. He has already shot probably over 100 photos of Dinosaur Bone and will probably have a section on the website designated for just Dinosaur Bone. He was astonished by the amount and variety of Dinosaur Bone I have in my inventory.

    I am trying to remember how to post the larger photos without having the thumbnail too.

    This one is one of the yellow version of Amethyst Sage. I will post more later as these are some he sent to me by email. I have a CD from him that I will need to download and save and it has over 100 photos. He shoots the photos in 63 megs. I think my camera at its best resolution shoots an 8 meg photo....

    Mike,

    Your Darrell Gulin photo's are fantastic. The Dinosaur Gem Bone Mosaic is the BEST ever. I will sure be interested in his art of your great stones. You two make a great Art Team.

    I have talked this over with my wife and I beleive we will probably be putting some of the signed original pieces up for sale and see if there is interest in buying the artworks. Darrell has copyrighted the artworks he has paid me with so usually there will only be one signed original on canvas and possibly one on a ultra high gloss platinum paper of each photo unless I and Cheryl ask specifically for another signed copy.

    My wife has selected the signed photos on canvas she wants and so we are listing some of the rest on Ebay. Here is the link to the one for the Chrysocolla in Quartz knife with what I refer to as the "alien world" scales. In fact the photo was taken of the preform for the scales on the knife currently listed on Ebay.

    The "Oregon State, McDermitt Purple Jasper" is sweet!

    Maybe I shouldn't gripe about the overtime I'm working right now. Maybe in the end I will finally have enough for one of your works of art.
