Philip Johnson Jigsaws Now Available in Australia Myer & Go Lo (Sams WareHouse) Stores

Its always great to get a sale on Red Bubble , but what Red Bubble offers is an invaluable means of getting your work seen by buyers who might want your images for a product or licence
It goes to prove Red Bubble provides an important means of getting your work noticed, and it can be in many ways like advertisers etc searching Red Bubble for images. Recently it was a game company Crown & Andrews looking for material for Jig Saws,
A collection of 8 of my images to be used for that purpose, the collection of 8 1000 piece jigsaws , are now on the shelves of the Australian Department stores Myer and Go Lo (Sam’s Warehouse) as the “Philip Johnson Collection” in time for Christmas they dont cost much and make great stocking stuffers.

Go Lo have all 8 jigsaws and Myer…

Australian Outback Timelapse Photography

One comment I hear from overseas photographers visiting Australia is they Love The Light: i came across this video on Australian Geographics Site time lapse photography taken over a year in the Australian Outback an epic task of 105,000 images check it out HERE:

I always remember a quote from Ken Duncan where he said the most important item in a Photographers Camera kit is PATIENCE

Black Friday - Biggest Online Sales Day of the year

Black Friday the largest online shopping day of the year is this week, its a good time to discuss ideas about getting your work seen and hopefully purchased. So what’s your tips for getting your work out there ?

Source Read now Black Friday:

The news media have long described the day after Thanksgiving as the busiest shopping day of the year.3 In earlier years, this was not actually the case. In the period from 1993 through 2001, for example, Black Friday ranked from fifth to tenth on the list of busiest shopping days, with the Saturday before Christmas usually taking first place.2 In 2003, however, Black Friday actually was the busiest shopping day of the year, and it has retained that position every year since except 2004, when it ranked second.1

Black Friday is popular as a shop…

A Jigsaw Contract

It just goes to prove you never know who is watching and where your art will go when i joined Red Bubble in 2007 i wasnt to know that anyone would like my work little alone buy anything. Well recently interest took another turn with the large Australian Toy and Game Company Crown & Andrews who market Games & Jigsaws throughout Australia and the United Kingdom expressing interest in producing some of my work as jigsaw puzzles.

The first of my images to be used for that purpose, the first 1000 piece jigsaws will be marketted by the Australian Department stores Myer and *Golow*as the “Philip Johnson Collection” will be shipped to stores this month in time for Christmas.

All from being a member of the Red Bubble Community

There will also be a chance for sunrise and sunset shoots, perhaps a trip to nearby Bathurst and Abercrombie House, a dinner at hill end lodge, meals at the historic Royal Hotel.

6 Things You Should Never Reveal on Facebook
The following article is By Kathy Kristof, syndicated personal finance columnist, speaker and author of three books, including the recently updated Investing 101 (Bloomberg, 2008).

..The whole social networking phenomenon has millions of people sharing their photos, favorite songs and details about their class reunions on Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and dozens of similar sites. But there are a handful of personal details that you should never say if you don’t want criminals — cyber or otherwise — to rob you blind, according to Beth Givens, executive director of the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse.

The folks at Insure.com also say that ill-advised Facebook postings increasingly can get your insurance cancelled or cause you to pay dramatically more fo…
