I am now in my third day of a ten day trial of saving my soul and from what I have experienced so far should make me negative. At least it should make me negative towards social media. I am rather polite when it comes to the use of social media so I do not bombard my friends and followers with advertisement about this project.
In fact I was hoping I would not have to. They would spread the word and then their friends and so on and I could get to work on my images and blog about how fantastically this whole operation goes was the plan. I guess that might change. But time is not out. This can still happen. You can still save my soul.
Here is how you can help. Read the original post- I need your help - Street photography for sale - and share it to your friends and foes alike or share this post any thing helps. If this works we have proofed that you can save your sole by selling photographs.
And thank you in advance.
I need your help - Street photography for sale
Read this then share this please.
Do you know of any one that wants a beautiful piece of photograph then let them know about this opportunity. I need to sell 100 pieces of my work before end of the month or this is the end of the photography road for me. In order to do that I have set down the price of my images and from the moment I reach the goal of having sold 100 images I will round up the number in tenths of the images and confine them to be sold in that limit. So in an instance of me selling 22 pieces of one of my images I will round the edition up to 30 and that will be the end edition of that particular image.
So why am I doing this. Because I need money fast to save my beaten behind from catastrophe. If I can not reach this goal I will not be able to work on my images and my upcoming books in the nearest future. That is why I need your help chipping in by at least sharing this offer to your friends
So what you might think. Yeha so what - I loose you don't win. So now is your chance to grab a deal and get a print for peanuts. Printed and signed by me and me only. There is no guarantee of that happening in the future and certainly not if this project fails.
Now as it would be plain foolish of me to do this with an image that will only sell in one exemplar or two I will round those up to the limit of the bestseller or minimum of 20. In the case of this not working out at all, the limit will be set by me not bother with doing any more prints ever again except for my self as I will probably go bankrupt any ways by doing this.
Any image in - The way I see it - series is now up for grabs and sets the path for the future. Order yours now and let others know of this mega deal by sharing this information. This includes images from Mexico, Guatemala, Panama, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Belize, USA, Canada, Iceland, Norway, Hungary, Netherlands and more
All images are black and white and come in two sizes 12" x 12" and 20" x 20" and are handprinted and signed by me on matt paper.
The images up for grabs:
The way I see it - Norway
The way I see it - Mexico
The way I see it - Europe
The way I see it - Americas
What if you fail:
That is some thing I do not want to think about because I trust that you are going to help if not by investing in a piece of art your self at least you will let some one that might want to buy know about this deal and help a struggling artist. I am putting my trust in people helping out.
p.s if you share this and then head over to my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-art-of-Icelandic-Photography/100798046679748?ref=hl and like it I will if I reach my goal pick out by random 5 of you who have liked my page and give them a copy of my favorite image.
