Mount Grampians, Victoria Australia 2016
Just relived the memories I have of my travel through my photos. I'm currently upload my photos to Smugmug for cloud storage. I'm also make it available for people to purchase if they like what they see. The best way to show your appreciation is through your wallet not pluses or like or love. Put it in your wall where you can appreciate every day.
We live in an information age and for artists to showcase their work then the Internet is a great place to do it. But if you look back just 100 years, you have to go to a gallery to see up and coming artists and usually there's a gate keeper right? They don't let you in for free, why shouldn't it be any different because of the Internet.
You can't expect artists to keep producing wonderful materials and have bread on the table at the same time without the generous support from the public. It is sad that some of the great photographers in our time didn't get the recognition and financial success that they deserve until they were in their later seasons. I'm probably follow that same path unfortunately and that's the life of an artist.
