Woop woop…the moment is almost here! When Kelly from Whole Foods approached me this past summer and asked me if I would be interested in showing my shots in a solo show, I jumped for joy. Thrilled at the opportunity, I’ve been hard at work these past months getting my photo library in shape to prepare for my first show. There has been lots to do, but it’s right on schedule. If you’re in the Los Angeles area and would like to show some support, please consider stopping by. Even if you can’t make it to the opening reception, my work will be on display for the month following, until Dec. 14, so you can peruse at your leisure.

The details:

Thursday, Nov. 18, 5:30pm-8:30pm
“Locals Night” at Whole Foods Venice, feat. photographer Maggie Houtz
225 Lincoln Blvd.
Venice, CA 90291

(located in the Whole Body section, center of the store)

We will have a DJ, food, and lots of friends on hand. Additionally, as of November Whole Foods is an official stop on the map of the Venice Art Crawl so there will be plenty of amazing art to see throughout the city. Why not make an evening of it and come check it out?

It brings me great pleasure to announce the launch of this new Website for my artistic endeavors under the mantle of Softly Lit Studios. Why Softly Lit? It describes a mood, or a favored lighting technique. It’s also a bit easier to spell than my last name. I happen to just like it too!

Welcome, and have a look around. The Photos link will take you to my portfolio, which will be a fully functioning store just in time for my upcoming photography show on November 18. The DJ Mixes link will get you to all of my (freely) downloadable mixes of chilled beats and pastoral soundscapes for your relaxing and recreation. You can find out a little more about me on either of the “About” links. There will probably be some more content added as things settle in a bit, so I invite you to bookmark this site and come back for a visit now and again.

I also have a mailing list set up for all announcements related to photography and DJing/music. Sign up here.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy what you see and hear!
