Wow, where have I been?
Well…. I wish I could tell you that I have been in some far off land exploring little villages and taking some photos, but I can’t. I have been in a pure madness marathon getting ready for the 2012 Summer Sawdust in addition to a whole bunch of other photo projects that are going on right now.
I am going to post soon about the building of my booth this year. Booth #409 (come by and check it out ) but in the meantime I hope you enjoy this sunset from last night. I am happy to say that it looks as though sunset season has returned to Southern California after a couple of months off.
Last night was a gem.. here you go!
This was one serious sea cave off the coast of Southern Tasmania.
Well, the weather is starting to heat up (you wouldn’t think so judging by the marine layer we’ve been socked in with the last week) but it is… so in honor of that I have posted a little surf shot. The sun beating down, warm water, south swells, this image has everything that signifies summer here in Southern Callifornia. We’ve gone with just a “May 2012″ label on this calendar, not all of the dates. I wanted to ease back into it, because as I am sure most of you know, I have really been slacking on putting up wallpapers this year. This is kind of a “re-start”, so let’s hope it gets another posting trend going.
In this months issue of Laguna Beach Magazine, I had the privilege of photographing local Laguna musician Andrew Corradini and his wonderful family. Andrew has got a great folksy vibe and his family’s story is truly inspiring. If you get a chance please take a minute to read the article, great people.

Nearly a year in the making, I have finally edited and published my film from the Philippines. This is not quite like my others, this one I worked directly with my friend Jack and Eddie who run Tao Philippines and spent nearly a month with them on their boats out in Palawan. What came from it, well you can see for yourself below….
It was a wild adventure, through some of the most insane landscapes I have ever seen. I got to wreck dive through old Japanese war ships, swim with unreal coral cliffs and, to be honest with you, I could continue listing things off for an hour.
This film was different because I worked so much with Tao, to produce a beautiful/but not over the top movie. I also wrote the script and had a professional voice over actor from England read, which was the first time I’ve ever done anything like that.
On a closing note, I know the boy who cried wolf, I’ve said this before but I want to start using this blog in many different facets. I have been neglecting her for a few months now but I am making some big changes to the SporlederArt world and I’m going to be bringing everything together for a more cohesive feel.
Until those changes start appearing here… ciao my friends
A room unlike any other. No two are the same and it exists for only a fraction of a second. The color can only be possible for a few minutes each day.
It’s a room with a private view, lit by little golden glass bulbs. It’s the thought of sitting in this room, cut off to the rest of the world in a private place that keeps me coming back. Dreaming of what the next one will look like for that fleeting moment in time.

This is not exactly photo related… but I could stare at this map for hours! Take a look:
Here is a little in between wallpaper. No dates, but it’s something to freshen up your wallpaper a bit. This is an image of the beautiful lake, Laguna Lachua in Northern Guatemala. It’s a beautiful lake that is full of little fish that come up and nibble on your body as you swim.
