Show Updates

31st July 2012

My show at Broadway Gallery NYC is wrapping up this friday, if you haven’t gotten the chance yet, then go check them out before Friday.

If you can’t make that, then check out my work at the RAW Artists RADIATE. Get your tickets now cause it’ll be awesome.

(A little request: I like to think that I give a lot to you guys - I take a lot of pictures, and while I occasionally bug you to buy prints and ask you to buy things with my affiliate links, I don’t really ask that much of you. So if you can afford it and can’t make it, buy a ticket for me, and if you can make it, I’d love to chat!)

(I don’t get any cut of ticket sales)

11th July 2012

I was recently asked how often I sold prints, and if I sold enough to make a living off of them (I published a sort of answer before I was ready, so I lost the actual question, sorry asker!).

The short answers: Not often at all, and I don’t sell anywhere enough to make a living off of them, though to be honest, that’s not really my goal right now, and isn’t a necessity either.

Ideally, I’d like my photography to pay for itself - whether that’s equipment, film, or a new computer for back ups (I’ve got a post coming about the ‘hidden’ costs of being a photographer) - if I could hit that then I’d be pretty happy.

Right now that’s not happening. I’ve been selling prints less frequently these days, due to reasons that I’m not clear about. It probably has a lot to do with not having enough photos in my store.

If you are interested in buying prints, feel free to contact me and I’ll put up in my store. If you don’t want to buy prints and still want to support me, please use these links to shop at Adorama, B&H, or Amazon and I’ll get a very small amount of the sale.

Let me ask you a question: how come you don’t buy prints? Price? Availability? Method (eg do you not like Etsy?) Would you buy other products (digital downloads, ebooks, etc)?

I was asked by Broadway Gallery to select 2 photos to be included in their July showcase. If you’re in NY, please check it out!

Many thanks to Chase, Drew, Ren, Alice, Ashley, Karishma, Emily P and Emily S for your help selecting pictures, I couldn’t have done it with you. If you should be on this list, and I forgot to ask you, I’m sorry.

Print Sale

21st June 2012

I haven’t done a print sale in quite literally months, and given that it’s a heatwave right now, what better time than right now?

Use the code ITSSOHOT to get 20% off any print in my store, as per usual (pre-sale prices are):

  • 5 x 7 for $15
  • 8 x 10 (or 12) for $20
  • 11 x 14 for $25

Film shots are also available for sale but are $10 more at each size.

Have a photo in mind that you really want to buy that isn’t listed? No worries! Just get in touch with me and I’ll create a listing for you. I’ll keep this up for about a week, so get on it.

Reminder: Nikon D7000 for $100 off

14th June 2012

As a reminder, B&H has the Nikon D7000 for $100 off all this month.

This is the camera I use every day and have put through hell and high water. It’s a solid, incredibly capable camera. I highly recommend it and think that if you are serious about wanting to get into photography and have the money to get into it, that you should get it.

Like the last post, I’d recommend getting the following setup:

You’ll probably want to get some memory for that too, these Transcend 16GB cards have been great for me (and for $14, they aren’t too expensive either).

After that you’re all set!

(If you want to edit your photos, I recommend using Lightroom 4 but you can get away with doing a lot of awesome things in free programs like iPhoto or Picasa)

29th May 2012

I’ve been slacking on fully fleshing out a the buyer’s guide I started writing around the holidays last year, but the one camera I can wholeheartedly recommend (the Nikon D7000) is on sale for $100 off at B&H until June 30.

Having used this camera for well over a year every single day, I can personally attest to the capabilities of it both in terms of build quality and photo quality. Owning it won’t make you a good photographer, but if you enjoy taking pictures and like Nikon equipment then you’ll be incredibly happy use it.

Pick it up from now until the end of June at B&H and you won’t regret it. I’d forgo the package with the kit lens and get the body along with the 35mm f/1.8G to match what you are seeing with your eyes to what you see with the camera. It’s basically the same price anyway.

Giveaway | Silhouetted Mist Print 8 x 12

16th May 2012

I just moved desks at work and found a print I made of this shot I called ‘Silhouetted Mist’. It’s an 8” x 12” print on Lustre paper, which gives it a great color while not being super reflective.

Why am I telling you this? Because it will yours soon! (Well, one lucky one of you at least). All you have to do to enter is like/reblog this post here on Tumblr. If you want to increase your chances, then Like me on Facebook and then like the post about this giveaway there too (Sorry if you don’t have a facebook account). I’ll pick a winner next Monday. Please make sure you have your ask box enabled so I can get your shipping information.

Good luck!

(Oh and if you don’t win and have a hankering for a print of mine, check out my Etsy shop or my (small) store on Gumroad)

This song is aggressively on repeat of late, it just builds fantastically into awesomeness after 1:20, and then you’ll be hooked.

'Cause every single story / Is a story about love / Both the overflowing cup / And the painful lack thereof / You got the heart of a dove

3rd May 2012

I’m off for a bit of a birthday weekend of travels and not too much internet. Thanks to the magic of the Tumblr queue and the fact that I took way too many photos yesterday (and the fact that I have a bunch of film shots that I haven’t posted yet), you shouldn’t notice anything different along the way. Enjoy, and I’ll be posting again on Monday.
