Buy a canvas - Reflections

+500px has finally released a market/store for photographers wanting to sell their own images.

I'm not the kind of guy that spams or who brags too much about my own work, I'll keep this short and simple and I won't write about this again.

I'm setting up my best image of 2011 and a couple of others for sale in canvas or download at http://500px.com/trmanco/store.

The image I'm promoting is the one you can see below and all of them are for personal use only. More details about the licence you get on 500px.

Wow! The original post reached the 500 comments limit. Please use this one now.

My new circle: Photographers on Pinterest
==================================

It's really hard to find photographers on Pinterest, so I've decided to create and share a Google+ circle for this. Are you into photography? Do you want to be included in the circle? Do this:

1) Share the link to YOUR Pinterst profile in the comments below the original post:
https://plus.google.com/111873853137122484021/posts/dZzkXTcD6CR

Old post (the comments limit reached):
https://plus.google.com/u/0/111873853137122484021/posts/agRa7siUYz4

2) Share the original post publicly with your G+ audience.

I'll add all the users who fulfill both conditions into my Photographers on Pinterst circle and I'll share the circle publicly on February 21.

Feel free to follow my Pinterest profile http://pinterest.com/jarek/ or my TOP Google+ Photos pinboard http://pinterest.com/jarek/top-photos-google/ . You aren't obligated to do this to be included in the circle.

If you need a Pinterest invitation, share your email here. I'm sure there will be enough Pinterest users who will be willing to invite you.

Plus One Collection - Fund Raising Update + Important Announcements - PLEASE SHARE

First, how are we doing?

We're doing great. Since we launched last Thursday, we received 144 orders for the Limited Edition version of the book. 94 are from US/Canada and the rest will ship all over the world - Europe, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Israel, Argentina - and so forth.

This translates to over $6,000 raised for +Kiva in the first few days of our campaign. Wow. That shows you we can do some good with our art, if we try.

Second, when are other versions of the book launching? Can't tell you the exact date, except to say we're all working really hard to expedite the process. Best estimate - first two weeks of March. Some things are beyond our control. To help you know exactly when, and perhaps get an early announcement, we set up... more »

Some things are beyond our control. To help you know exactly when, and perhaps get an early announcement, we set up a mailing list you can join here - http://plusonecollection.com/about-the-book/ - please sign up!

Third, we have a lot more ideas in our heads about what else we can do with our project that will not only raise more money, but will also promote the artists in the book and the community in general. I'll discuss some tonight on +Photo Talk Plus and will announce other projects at a later date. What we have now - the book - is just a tip of the iceberg of what I think we can do.

Fourth, only 5 days remaining to order the Limited Edition of the Book. Let's make one more push to spread the word, as orders are slowing down. Please share this post or link to our web-site wherever you can today. Let's keep momentum rolling.

Thank you!!___

Wow, what a success! Thanks to all who put time and effort into making this possible! Amazing!!

Plus One Collection - Update on Sales

Wow - what a day.

Really appreciate all you who spread the word today, and who ordered the copies of the book. Remember how I thought 100 copies would probably not sell and may be too many? So glad +Marc Evans suggested to me in email that we limit the edition by time rather than number of copies, since the #1 goal is to raise money and we shouldn't have limits on that.

So with that, glad to announce if we had a limit of 100 copies sold, all books would have been sold on day 1. Wow - thank you, thank you, thank you!

Please continue to support the cause by spreading the word, and if you have the ability, buying copies of the book.

We're just starting, but the amount raised for +Kiva in one day is already in 4-digits.

Wow. Think about that for a second how many people Kiva supports that can help. Sometimes all they need to get on their feet is $25.___Wow, what a success! Thanks to all who put time and effort into making this possible! Amazing!!

Almost!!

Plus One Collection - Update #38 - We're Almost There!!!

Happy Saturday to you all.

First, we went ahead and organized all your submissions this week. Another wave of follow up emails went out yesterday to those of you who have missing information. Much thanks and all credit should go to +Tricia McDonald Ward who took on that boring task and have done an amazing job of it. Without it, the project would have stalled. She also organized a circle I'm sharing that has all artist from A through S. The rest are here - https://plus.google.com/u/0/106711803105103787711/posts/1zaPkDTTE4u If you want to see the full list - take a look here - http://goo.gl/7ykZX and then do CRLT+F to find your name.

Second, the process of book design is well underway. +Andy Lee has been tirelessly working behind the scenes to put together a beautiful book. Tell you what - early drafts look amazing. He's a professional designer by trade, and also a great photographer whose image submission is one of my favorites in the book.

Third, we're still working on finalizing the details about the partnership with a charity. It's not as easy as you think to arrange and there's been hurdles on the way. I'll share an update when I have it.

Fourth, next week we will also be launching our own web-site which will be our home for the project and will help us promote it. Stay tuned on that - +Ingo Meckmann has been working hard to make it possible.

So there's your update. If you have any questions, leave a comment or send me an email through my profile.

We're almost there!!!___Almost!!

I still have some images that I've taken last year that I haven't posted yet and will be posting in the next upcoming weeks! I will also be re-sharing my best images from 2011 every once in a while!

Any ideas? Please share your thoughts on the original post! http://j.mp/tCglbH

Okay Photographers. I could use some help with brainstorming!

I am have newly moved into doing photography for a living. I am looking for various forms of revenue. I understand that this is the hard part -- making a living for a new photographer whose portfolio is still fairly small.

So I am looking for some ideas on who/where/how to market myself to people who can/will buy photographs. Some ideas I already have:

1) Calendars. This is the season to put together some nice calendars - but I am not ready, so I will keep this in mind for next year. Do people buy calendars throughout the year?

2) Postcards and Blank greeting cards. This is good for craft shows and "Starving Artist" street sales. Perhaps consignment stores, gift shops, or tourist stores would be interesting in buy bulk or selling consignment?

3) Posters. See point 2.

4) Publication -- This I have no idea how to break into this market! How does a photographer get noticed enough for magazines to see them? I understand that as a new photographer, I will not get into Vogue or Canadian Living...but there are WAY more magazines than that around! How does one break into that market?

5) My own website to sell prints.

6) E-books. I am leery about getting into this business. There are so many fabulous free resources out there that creating an e-book would feel like I am plagiarizing from someone else.

I am interested in your thoughts...things that have worked for you, things that haven't. Lessons learned, ideas you haven't tried yet? What do you think?___Any ideas? Please share your thoughts on the original post! http://j.mp/tCglbH

Wow, 8000+ followers

This place is amazing, if it wasn't for Google+ I would never be this motivated in taking photos. Let's face it, I know I'm bragging a little too much in comparison to how many followers +Thomas Hawk or even the all mighty +Trey Ratcliff have (they get that much in a day, YIKES!!) but let me have the spotlight for a little... OK guys ;)

Below you can check out some of my best shots. Feel free to be social with them!

More updates soon!

Thanks!!

Wow, 8000+ followers

Ladies and gentlemen, the photography community here on G+ is going to help charity by creating a book. Follow +Ivan Makarov to stay tuned or simply contact him if you want to help out. Don't forget to circle the page as it's one of the only places we can keep track of what's going on.

Update #4 - PLEASE READ - Let's Talk Format + New Page

First, those who are interested in a book - please make sure to follow new page I created specifically for the book. Soon all updates will be done through the page.

Second, let's discuss the format of the book.

The way I see it - we'll have two versions of the book, hard copy and ebook.

Hard copy will be fulfilled through Blurb. With no capital to start with, and with 200+ photographers (and number is still growing) willing to contribute, Blurb model seems to be the most practical. Anyone can order and they ship to quite a few countries now. However, the book is not going to be cheap with so many photographers. We're probably talking 150-200 pages when all is said and done, which would put us at a price of $75 when we add $5 charity contribution to it and before shipping charges. We'll sell 100+ copies and I know I'll buy one, but it's expensive.

This is where ebook comes in. No cost to produce it whatsoever, except the time to design it. We'll price it at $5 for high quality PDF viewable on computers, iPads, Android tablets, iPhones, Android phones, etc. Opportunities are limitless here. Imagine if we sold 1,000 copies - that's close to $5,000 raised for charity. Imagine 10,000 copies?

I'm thinking we'll design a PDF - but if we have app designers among us, we can even create an app we can sell in Apple's App Store and Android Market. I don't know how to do it, but maybe someone else knows (let me know!).

Why just $5? I think that's an important price point on the internet. Check out how much money one comedian made this month selling video of his show for $5 - https://buy.louisck.net/news

So you need some new gear and software to jump-start your photography? How about a chance to win the items below between now and Christmas?

1) Share the Love and give someone else a chance to win by sharing original post here:
https://plus.google.com/111852119488463725230/posts/ReXXCWvHeKE
2) Leave a comment on the original post (so I can include you in the drawing)
3) Circle me (+Ali Elhajj)

One last thing, some of the companies have brand pages, circle them as a thank you, they’d appreciate it.

I’ll send out a post before the items are given away as a reminder to what’s coming up (but you only have to share this post) - hopefully this will help keep the noise down in your stream.

The Details
-No Purchase is necessary and this giveaway is void where prohibited.
-I’ll cover the first $20 of shipping for the items that can’t be delivered electronically. It gets expensive shipping around the globe so if it’s over $20, I’ll ask you to chip in.
-I reserve the right to substitute any item with another item if necessary (I don’t anticipate this happening, but just in case).
-Winners will have 48 hours to respond with email or physical address. If I don’t get a response, I just have to regift the item.
-Each eligible individual will be assigned a number and the winner will be selected by using random.org’s random number generator.

*Induro indicates the AKB0 Tripod may be out of stock until sometime in January (we’ll try to get it sooner, but just know this one could take a while to get to you).___I got late to the game, but I'm in ;)
