The folks over at AWL Images recently asked me a few questions about life on the road and what it’s like working as a full-time travel photographer. If you have ever wondered what it takes to be successful as a travel photographer (hint: It’s all about having enough fresh socks on the road), check out the full interview HERE.

Editing photos from Palawan looks like this. So hard to be critical when every frame looks like paradise! Almost there.
After a hectic last few months, a wedding, and a house full of people all summer long, things are finally winding down in our little village. We were finally able to get out for a breath of fresh air and catch some sunshine on a beautiful day at Crozant this afternoon.
We will be heading out for the next two months on an extended travel through France and Switzerland. I am definitely excited to finally have a chance to get back to traveling for a while and produce some new work… Will be back with plenty of fresh images in the new year!
Well, it only took a month and a half, but finally a portion of my back archives are now online. That included quite a lot of content from a couple United States road trips (more to come eventually from last summer), as well as some photographs from my European travels from Czech Republic, France and most recently, Germany. Of course, there’s a lot more to come when (if) I ever have the time to sort through it all. After all, I realized it has been ten years now since I started traveling and taking photos (which is probably not a coincidence), so there’s literally years of work to go through… One day.
Also, I have added the possibility to buy prints directly from the archive page– This is still in testing, and I’m not sure if it will stick around as a long term solution, but for the time being I will keep it. You should see a link under each photo which will allow you to purchase prints. Print orders are fulfilled through Fotomoto, and I have ordered a couple of test prints and the quality is definitely very nice. The pricing structure is a little on the pricey side however, but if you ACT NOW you can get 25% off. How’s that for a sales pitch? Seriously, use coupon code 64AA04 at checkout. Limited time offer, and all that, so get it while it’s hot. Or something.
Going forward, I still have a bit of work to do getting the rest of the Peru work finished! I should be able to finish that all up in the next few weeks, and then it’s on to the next big thing…
Most of the portfolio content is now online, and I am pretty pleased with the result so far. I will be adding new work there from time to time, but for now I will begin to focus on uploading my archives. I hope that in the future I will have most of the archives available for viewing as well as adding the possibility for directly purchasing prints and configuring licensing options on the website. That will be a longer-term project though, since I’ve now spent now over a week getting the website up and running, getting the portfolio galleries online, and working out all the coding problems. Now, I have to get back to working on some other things for the moment and will have to let things here rest as they are for now- Hopefully not for too long though, since the new system will allow me for much easier updating and workflow once it’s all smoothed out.
It was a long time coming, and quite a big undertaking, but Reciprocity Images finally has a fresh coat of paint to catch it up to the 21st century. After a few sleepless nights tweaking the code and setting up the new galleries, the site is now live- If you come along anything out of place or something that doesn’t work quite right, please let me know so I can look into it. I’ll be slowly adding to the galleries and fixing a few small bugs that are still running loose over the next few weeks, but perhaps from now on the site will be kept better updated in the future- That means no more looking at the same photos from five years ago! So, be sure to subscribe via RSS, or sign up for email updates to stay in touch and be notified whenever there’s new content.
Along with the new redesign, I will also implement the possibility to purchase prints and license images directly from the website as well as view a larger number of images in the archives. It’s something I have been considering for a long time now, so I hope that the effort and costs will be worth it in the end. So if you happen to have a blank space on your wall, or are looking for something for your next design project, check the galleries and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any specific needs.
