My second photography book is now available for sale - please click the link above...

This is an 80 page, 8.5" X 11" color coffee-table picture book about my state - North Dakota - as well as western Minnesota where it borders with North Dakota throughout the Red River Valley.   I have relied heavily on people photos in my soft cover, perfect-bound documentary photo book but have also sprinkled it liberally with pictorials and photos of nature.   Though I don't have an exact date,  I am hoping to get an e-book version of my book available by mid to late July.  Happy reading!

Can't believe it has been over a year since I last corresponded here - but just wanted everyone to know I am still alive...I have had many personal changes this year and business continues to take a big chunk of my time.  Just wanted to share the amazing colors at Maplewood State Park - Lora and I took a short day trip yesterday and joined the throngs of other photogs elbowing each other out of the way...

 If ever you need evidence of why we live in this area, exhibit A could be the Coler Family Tailgate Benefit held this past Sunday at Hope Lutheran Church South in Fargo.  John Coler is battling pancreatic cancer and the faith community there along with many other friends and family in the region and around the country came together at Hope for the huge event.  It was an outpouring of love, concern and resources...see my photo gallery in "Photo Features" for a look at the festivities.

Let's be careful out there...

A recent trip to Bismarck to cover the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference & Expo at the Civic Center there netted me a ZUMA Press International "Photo of the Day"...

featured Rep. Earl Pomery (D-ND) wearing a traditional American Indian headdress, presented to him moments before by ND Three Affliated Tribes, while addressing the conference.  Seems the tribes' Forth Bertthold Reservation is smack dab in the middle of the Bakken Formation - which some industry experts predict could be producing nearly 1 million barrels a day by the end of this decade.

 Well,  it looks like we're gonna be in the soup...again.

Both Fargo and Moorhead are ramping up once more to fight a major flood with sandbag-making operations well-underway on both sides of the Red. Fargo hopes to have 1 million bags made by St. Patrick's Day next Saturday while Moorhead is locked in on 300,000...

All this is precautionary and advance planning as water experts are telling us we are wetter this March than in '09...

I am debuting a special offer today...with the purchase of each "2009 Red River Historic Flooding" photo books here, I am throwing in a free, commemorative 11X17" color flood volunteers "Thank You" poster - sorry, F-M metro area only...(see above)

Let's be careful out there!

Best, Bruce.

Rouse the children!  Wake the neighbors!  Hitch up the horses!  Come to my new online store - debuting at http://www.brucecrummy.com - my archive/e-commerce site - sometime in January...

To kickoff the change, I am slashing prices on my 8X10 and 4X6 inch reprints down to $9.99 and $4.77 respectively almost immediately!!

Have a great holiday season all and let's be careful out there.

Best, Bruce.

Hello all...

Just back from a few days out in western Colorado and southeastern Utah.  Will be posting those photographs here over the next several days.

My oh my,  the beauty of erosion over millions of years...

You will see what I mean when I have the opportunity to share my images from Moab, Utah and other locales I visited over the weekend...

Let's be careful out there!

Best, Bruce.

Just coming off a wonderful weekend as a participating studio in the Fargo-Moorhead Visual Artists-sponsored  Studio Crawl - a two day, free-to-the-public, tour of more than 30 artists' studios across the F-M area.  Met lots of wonderful people this weekend at my studio and appreciate everyone that was so kind to stop by and visit!

Fire away!

The credit card ordering issues have been resolved here so my flood book may be purchased:HERE... 

Thank you for your patience!

Let's be careful out there...


Tuesday, 9/15/09

My fervent apologies, people...

Having problems with the credit card ordering function regarding my flood book, online sales - so have suspended that function pending getting those problems resolved. 

A fix should be forthcoming shortly...

Let's be careful out there...

Best. Bruce.

Hello folks, for it is I - your humble, cyberspace servant coming to you live from the West Acres mall where I am sitting in the GUY section...

Wanted to let everyone know that my flood book launch party/open house on 8/27 went very well with a steady stream of visitors coming and going at my studio all evening long...

The following Monday, I was on the phone ordering a second printing and am pleased with how sales are going thus far.


Am scheduled to be interviewed Monday, Sept. 21 about my flood book live on WDAZ-TV Grand Forks with reporter extraordinaire Terry Dullum during their 5 p.m. newscast...

Will have a booth at the F-M Homebuilders Show the last weekend in September Sat. & Sun., at the Fargo Civic Center - stop by and say hello if you are there...

I am taking part in The Studio Crawl - basically a Tour of Homes for artists - on Oct. 3 and 4 in Fargo-Moorhead.  Artists in all genre's open their studios from 12-6 each day for the public to stop by (free of charge) and check out the artist's work and their digs...


Following a several month period of getting out my flood book, I am just now finally able to get back to a more rounded schedule of shooting these days - shot a couple weddings the past two weekends and will share the highlights here with you all soon...

Let's be careful out there - Bruce.

Hi...remember me?

OK, so it's been about two months since I last communicated with you - my loyal visitors - in this space...

Why, you may query, has it been such a long drought?

Been busy putting the finishing touches on the first of two photo flood books I am publishing soon documenting the 2009 Red River of the North and Sheyenne River flooding;  and, am rolling out Bruce Crummy Photography Seminars to debut Wednesday evenings from 6-9 beginning July 8th in my downtown Fargo studio at 806 Main Avenue.

Details on both coming soon - here...

Am off to photograph the 3rd Annual Moondance Jammin' Country music festival this Thursday through Saturday near Walker, Minn., where I will be filing daily photo galleries to...  


...the High Plains Reader website.

Let's be careful out there,  Bruce.



A heads up that I have gotten a good start on posting my all-inclusive gallery of the 2009 IIHF World Junior U18 Hockey Championships with about two dozen images from the final, gold medal game won by Team USA over Russia 5-0. Those of you who may be interested can go directly to my Flickr gallery of this here:


As time allows, I will work backwards through this tournament and post several photos from each game I covered - please bear with me...

Reason I mention this is that eventually all the photos I took at the nine-day hockey tournament can be seen in that one spot - though I have several galleries posted in my "Sports & Leisure" galleries here.

Still doing flood coverage so my time can be fragmented.

Let's be careful out there..

Best, Bruce.


Saturday, 4/18/09

Alot of water has gone over the road so to speak since we last talked here but suffice it to say I haven't been twittling my thumbs...

For those of you interested, I have posted a Flickr gallery entitled "2009 N.D. Sheyenne River Flood" and it can be found at this URL:


To reiterate, my Red River Flood photos can be found on Flickr here:


Hoping to get one up there about the World U18 Juniors World Hockey Championships that wrap up tommorrow at the Urban Plains Center...

Still flood coverage on the horizon though it is not at the fever pitch as of a week or two ago...

Thanks for all your emails and inquiries, I enjoy hearing from you all...

Let's be careful out there...

Best, Bruce.

To better serve you in this time of crisis, I have moved my Spotlight blog out front to now occupy the home page position. My reason for doing this is that our flood situation has turned into a fast breaking, ever-changing spot news story...

By now, many of you have heard that yesterday the National Weather Service in Chanhassen, Minn., released its new Red River 2nd crest prediction - and it ain't pretty folks. A 75% chance we could equal or exceed last week's all-time record levels and a 25% chance it could go even higher than that. Stay tuned...

Let's be careful out there!

Best, Bruce.

Tuesday, 3/31/09

Hi folks, seems like I've finally been able to come up for air as our flood situation here is at least stabilizing and hopefully the raging Red will continues its slow drop.

In case any of you are interested, I've posted a Flickr folder of my flood photos so that would be a convenient single place for you to go and see everything I have shot. Here's the link:


Let's be careful out there...

Muddingly yours, Bruce.

Seemed like just last week (actually, it was) we were digging out from under a mountain of snow from the biggest blizzard I've seen since 1996-97, and now, here we are, on the cusp of possibly THE highest Red River flood crest ever from almost exactly half the amount of snowfall during that winter...what gives? We'll leave the explanation to the pundits, academicians and engineers, but Fargo's looking at one hell of a flood fight in the next couple of weeks. I will be shooting lots of photos documenting the fight and sharing with you - and ZUMA Press - so check back regularly here. BTW, one of my snow photos from last week's blizzard was on msnbc.com during the blizzard cycle...

Hoping to post a photo gallery from the "Girl's Night Out" fashion revue show I shot Thursday night at the Fargo Theatre - an evening for the ladies including wine and another yet viewing of Sex In The City...



Tuesday, 3/10/09

This is a good day to stay home...

We have a raging blizzard outside, schools are closed and businesses probably should be.

I will get out and hoof it this afternoon to shoot some weather photos today to share here and thentommorrow as well with the cleanup...

Hoping to shoot the Fighting Sioux opening round hockey playoff series with Michigan Tech this weekend at The Ralph up in Grand Forks...

Having the Grand Opening for my new studio space downtown this Thursday night and looks like the weather will be a far cry from today, so let's keep our fingers crossed, shall we?

Stay inside today, but if you have to go out...let's be careful out there!

Best, Bruce.
