Why Foto Dono?

Updated: Aug 24, 2019

(Sigh) It’s one of those questions I get asked a lot. In short, it began as a nickname and stuck. It has meant many things to me over the years - the artists formerly know as Donovan, the sometimes wedding & portrait photographer and the guy who makes weird sh….err… stuff. However, lately, it’s come to mean something else. My boy is the one who drives me these days. I want to leave behind a body of work that he will enjoy. Hopefully, not some stuff shoved in a closet or just dumped off in a rubbish bin. I want him to see me working on my goals and dreams. How I work to achieve them and then set new goals for myself. I hope that he sees his crazy old man was, in the end, chasing his dreams of making art. I hope to show him my failures and my successes in my pursuit. I hope to show him by example. In the end, I hope for him. So, now 25 years later, after it all began, the answer to “Why Foto Dono?” It’s for him.
