Sorry about the dust. I’ve been kinda sprucing things up around here at the ol’ blog here. And, in between Seinfeld Marathons, I’ve managed to spruce up the ol’ website as well. You most definitely should not go to www.jbeardfoto.com and take a look at it. (does that little Bugs Bunny wait and pretend to whistle thing..)
One thing you might notice at the top is the slug-line “Not a Travel Photographer” . That would be because indeed I do not consider myself to be nor do I really wish to promote myself as a travel photographer. That being said, I am a photographer who is currently traveling.
If you’ve read any of my recent posts, then you know that obviously I’ve been still taking photos, and plan take many more. This isn’t my mission, however. My mission is my Strange Tiny People project. But to keep going with the project, I need to make some dollars (or bahts, riels, yuans, dongs, etc..). So, since it would be a shame to never put these photos I’ve been taking to good use, I’ve decided to put them up for sale!
That’s right, folks, step right up! For a limited time only, you too can be the proud owner of a photographic marvel from the Professional Foreigner series! These will only be available for a short time (until the trip is finished)! Head on over to joshuabeardphoto.com/prints today! Get ‘em while they last!
With sizes from 11″x14″ to a whopping 20″x30″ to decorate your fabulous living room, office, and/or dungeon! Amaze your friends! And, for 1 week exactly, you can have all of this for a very special introductory price of 25% off all stock! No need to ask the misses, just click today!
OK, now that I’ve shattered that soap box, let me explain why this print store is important: it is currently my sole means of funding my creative education project. Every time you buy a print, you keep me going on to the next school. I am not backed by a publisher, NGO, or sugarmama (any of those that would like to back me, hit me on the text ;). Travel, translators, supplies, gear maintenance: these are all things I have to keep covered or the project comes to a screeching halt.
While, again, I don’t promote myself as a travel photographer, I have worked hard and lost a lot of sleep perfecting these photos that are now up for sale. This is your one chance to own them, because after my travels for this project are over, so is this print run. They all come down, never to be sold again.
And to entice you further, I’m putting up a previously unreleased photo here and in the store early. This one involves my stay in Ha Tien, Vietnam. To read more, click that pretty boat picture below (hint, all the prints available in the store have a story alongside them).
So remember, kiddos. This week only, all of these prints are 25% off. So joshuabeardphoto.com/prints and get em while they’re cheap, and in the process, help give awesome kids the chance they need to show their creativity to the world (there’s all kindsa karma involved, I’m told).
