Yes, you read correctly. In April I registered my business, so I can sell my prints in an online store – at least in Germany for now. So for the past five months I didn’t have the time to write any post. I know that not writing on a repetitive basis and complaining about this sounds like excuses. But I had to set priorities. And besides that I have a daytime job which helps me to put food on the table.
So what benefits do I get from reading this blog post? Probably none. But I did want to mention that there is a SHOP where you can BUY my prints. Oh, and did I mention that I do all the printing and framing myself? No? OK. Now I did. I print with an Epson SureColor SC-P600 and pigment ink on Hahnemühle Photo Rag ultra smooth 305 gsm paper. Also I do the framing completely by myself. This now has gone down self-advertising road. But I think printing and framing are good topics for the next blog posts.
Anyway, what I wanted to say is that I’m trying to sell my photographs to an audience which appreciates my work. Somebody who would like to hang a real image on the wall. I know there are those „DM me for prints“ messages on instagram, but I don’t think that this is a good platform for selling prints. Sure, you can reach a large number of people on social media, but I think the advantage is on the side of the social networking service itself. What I’m trying to say is that I have a business now and you’re welcome to contact me or interact in any form you like.
Oh, by the way… if you don’t know Shin Noguchi you are in for a treat. This wonderful man is photographing his surroundings in Japan and does a wonderful job. And with this improper ending, it’s „back to the studio“.
