After centuries (okay, okay… a few years) of searching how to best share my photography prints with the kind folks who have been asking about this very thing for some time, I finally have a perfect solution!
Say Hello to Thirty9
From the premier printing company in the United States comes Thirty9; an exclusive collection of imagery from—you guessed it— thirty-nine photographers. You’ll find a diverse collection of imagery to choose from in their exceptional online gallery including some of my all-time favourite photographs from my travels around the world.
I’ve chosen a series of images that reflect the assorted experiences I’ve had on my journey and I’m pleased to take you along this adventure in print form.
Over the upcoming months ahead, I’ll be releasing new images as well and hope that you’ll share with me what some of your favourites are. If I get enough interest in a photograph, I’ll certainly do my best to make it available for sale via the Thirty9 online gallery.
I’m blessed to have created a career that allows me to travel the world, live exceptional moments, meet incredible people, and now share all this with you on the photography tours I run with my company Discovery Photo Tours as well as via this new exciting venture I’m part of with Thirty9.
If you would have asked me ten years ago what I would be doing in 2019, I certainly would not have guessed this path. It has not always been easy and I many ways is still not easy but it is a journey that I would not trade for much anything else. Getting a chance to combine creativity with business is challenging for sure but it sure can be rewarding.
Art itself is undefinable to me and yet there are some wise people who have said some brilliant things about art in the past and here are some of my favourite quotes about art.
“A picture is a poem without words”
“Life beats down and crushes the soul and art reminds you that you have one.”
“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
“You don’t take a photograph, you make it”
“Curiosity about life in all of its aspects, I think, is still the secret of great creative people”
~ Leo Burnett
“You can’t wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club”
~ Jack London
“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, the just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while”
~ Steve Jobs
“Art must be an expression of love or it is nothing.”
“If people knew how hard I worked to get my mastery, it wouldn’t seem so wonderful at all.”
“Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.”
“Inspiration does exist but it must find you working.”
Thank you for being part of my journey. Your encouragement and enthusiasm are not taken for granted and I’m truly grateful for each and every kind word I have received from all of you over the years.
Now, can I interest you in buying a print?
