In this crazy world of digital photography we are producing the first generation that will not have a tangible product to show for their existence. Even I have been caught up in this digital world wind saving all my images to my computer or to a USB drive, sometimes I’ve saved them to DVDs in order to give them to models. What I have noticed is that they show up on their Facebook page, but I’m pretty sure they’re not anywhere else, they haven’t printed them nor have them in the portfolio book. This has started me to think about how I want to display my art. As an artist I want to preserve the art that I produce and I want those who purchase my art to proudly display that same art. I am saddened with the thought that the time and effort I put into the images will simply be lost or forgotten on the dvd. I am increasing my efforts in recommending and offering prints and will not provide low cost digital images, the only exception will be tf shoots.
There is nothing more satisfying than displaying quality prints on the wall. My prints are printed through some of the finest companies in the U.S.. If you want digital images instead, the price will be comparable to a print order. I recommend a quality printer for your prints, this will be an investment for a life time.
I do not want you to select me as a photographer because I’m in your price range, my art is more valuable than that. Select me because I can give you the look you want, you proudly displaying my photography on your wall.
I am not desperate to make a buck, I’ve got a job that pays the bills but don’t think that will distract me. I will spend the time to make keepsakes for you, those you proudly display on your wall, in your album or your portfolio.
Think about the last digital image you took, did you print it?, Frame it? Hang it? It’ s ok if you took a selfie and didn’t print it, just don’ t place my art in the same category.
