My first crack at this challenge and my first ever self portrait, in all mediums. Self Portrait from Alexis Keenan on Vimeo. Starting the Dogwood 52 weeks of Photography challenge, but using video instead of photography as my medium.
I did it again. I dropped the blogging ball. I am back and here to stay, for the next 52 weeks at least! Lately, as a business owner, I’ve found that I’ve been so bogged down with the day to day needs of my business that I have lost track of what propels me through … Continue reading Making Art

It began with the Detroit International Auto Show in January. I joined with Voix Productions to shoot … Continue reading A Year Later
