A New Marketing Idea


Marble No. 3 by Abbey Ryan

This weekend I was catching up on all the photo blogs I follow (the list has grown to be nearly unmanageable), when I came across A Painting A Day” by Rob Haggart, renowned photo editor. It got me to thinking. He’s right, nobody is trying this in the photography area. Well, I have a mind to change that. I can select a photo, choose a mounting style, set a base price, and slap it on ebay for cheap. It’s pretty genius really – kudos to Abbey for trying it (and it looks to be successful for her), and thanks to Rob for bringing it up. I might try it on a weekly basis instead of a daily one, at least until I see how successful it is, but what a great way to introduce the new print of the week. Yep, definitely going to try this. Stay tuned to see how it works.

With winter fast approaching (it certainly feels like it this morning!), I selected this photo for the print of the week.

Taken in Lakewood, Colorado last January, this windmill had the perfect backdrop of a partly cloudy sky and the early morning light of day. I love it when I come across a striking seen such as this. I love it even more when it happens so close to home.

As with all “print of the week” entries, this artwork is on sale through next Friday, at which time prices will go up. Take advantage now by visiting my Art Gallery.

If you are interested in a download for personal printing, or a commercial rights license, please contact me directly.

Have a good weekend.

Each Friday I will debut a new picture that I am putting up for sale (print or download) at http://photos.chesterbullock.com. The inaugural image is of my daughter, taken at Bear Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park. For the first week than an image is available for purchase, it will be at a reduced price. Once a new image appears here, the prior one will revert to normal pricing (so if you like one, buy it right away).

There won’t be any specific theme, just images that I have created that I feel are worthy of someone’s interest and ownership.

Lakewood High School Senior Pictures Deadline

Another Senior Picture Candidate
The deadline for turning in the headshot for inclusion in the Lakewood High School 2008/09 Yearbook is October 3. Auto submission of the shot is something I plan to do for seniors I take pictures of. In all reality though, you don’t need to get the bulk of your pictures taken until February or March. This gives you time to pick out the ones you really like and have them back in time to mail out with announcements. It also gives you a chance to take some outdoor winter or late fall shots if you like those sorts of backdrops.

While I haven’t started officially doing the senior picture thing as a business, I will be taking portraits of the Lakewood High School Spirit Squad (cheerleaders) today. This will be the first step of creating the business, as I will be offering pictures for sale via my new Zenfolio site, where I will also offer selected prints available for purchase. These prints will be chosen from the various landscape and other pictures I have taken over the years. Hopefully other people will like them as much as I do.
