Want to keep up with my work, become a follower, work with me or are a fellow artist and want to connect? These are the two Social Networks that I'm part of and will actively follow you back and agree to a friend request. Look me up!
I've added a one page addition to my website, Studio Services. The need arose as I began to get more and more request to go back and shoot general commercial work. But a few wanted to see samples so I added the page. Currently I pay for advertising on a few other public formats, so it made since to do it here as well. I would rather shoot the more photoshop infused composite work, but would never say no to an opportunity to make money shooting any type of photography. As I say on the page, contact me for details.
So, about a day or so ago I added on my Blog here that I was fully ready to try my hand at Patreon. The page exist, I've worked on images for it, have my tiers ready to go, Paypal prepared for a new flow of income. But then,....I few photographer friends pulled me aside and we had a down to earth about it. Everyone has had mixed results on it. Plus the photographers I know who are more artist then commercial see it as selling out. So I was torn. What do I do? Do I launch, do I dump it, is it worth it? After watching a ton of pros and cons on Youtube, I have decided to hold off my launching and instead try what many have asked me to try first. DIRECT SALES. Here is how it works. For a fee, I have two packages or let's call the tiers as Patreon does, that contain my work. You pay the fee via, Paypal or Venmo, and I then in turn send the packages through Dropbox. Dropbox is free and they have an app. The file to Dropbox is open for 24 hours, then it is closed. So you have 24 hours to retrieve your image package. Currently I have two packages, which will contain Random Mix images. All images are copyright tagged. Very few of the images are seen online, most of what I have is work that has not been seen. For now the assortment is mixed. If this proves fruitful then I will then make a package of photo sets and videos. Two packages, one of my fully edited nude work and the other is my Adult Erotic work. $10. for 10 nudes images or $20. for 12 Adult Erotic images. Details are available in the link below. If this venture proves out then I may or may not launch the Patreon page. I want to know my fan base is solid enough to warrant sales. Hope to do business with you.
Recently I added a Store Front to my website. I used to be a photographer who sold his print work fresh from the darkroom, frustrating to only do half of what you love. So I have begun converting my work into magazine portfolio's and soon here that will merge into an actual book of my work. Fingerprint Magazine I have had the idea for since before 2006, so it's been a long time coming. All sales are through Blurb. If you want to purchase, and be anonymous then Blurb is the way to go, they don't provide names for people that sell to. I will make very little money off of these lil magazines for now. I get maybe $2. to $5. per purchase. But every little bit helps when it goes towards the final goal,which is to fund The Halloween Project photo series. The following models appeared in the magazines listed.
Weslie Tracy, Rachel Lawrence, Jessica Jinx, Nicole Roth, Summer May, John Perry, Hannah, Bridget, Bliss Van Allen, Keith Garner, Taylor Jo Haehn, Sabrina Lyn, Pam Bobker, and Lindsey
Stephanie Dilaveri, Manda Cheek, Jessica Jinx, Summer May, Tabby Gifford, Taylor Jo Haehn, Nikki Elliott, Virginia Wilson, Ashley Paul, Charly, Sam, Tessia Bowen, Randi Maxx, Kali Rising, Melissa Marie, Victoria Dee, and Delaney Dodge.
NOTE: THIS WEBSITE WILL BE NO MORE COME 2019. I AM SWITCHING THE ENTIRE SITE TO WIX.COM. WE ARE MODERNIZING AND SIMPLIFYING THE SITE.
These are all sites that my work can be found on, including my Facebook. The Wix site I am seeing as an alternate main website, although I am not thrilled with how slow WIX is in its functions. Moves very slow. These are all sites that I have no control over in what content is allowed.
SESSIONS Online Magazine no longer is in production. As with the notice above I have went in with a group, 4 Seat Productions to produce a revamped version of SESSIONS titled, PHOTOSESSIONMAG. SESSIONS was a great way to step into magazine production but had a few limitations. PHOTOSESSIONMAG is all ours free and clear. I will really miss, SESSIONS. I have kept the link up so everyone can visit the old issues.
This is the new magazine, PHOTOSESSIONMAG. It's a totally revamped version of SESSIONS, that will allow us to provide a Print, Ebook, and PDF version of the publication. Not to mention that the website will also be an online version. Print sales are through Blurb. Most issues will sell for $18. to $20. The Magazine is a quarterly publication.
