Thank You! - DIY UV Printer Video Course & What Do You Want Developed Next?

August 30, 2016  •  Leave a Comment


I wanted to say thank you to all of the photographers that have purchased my DIY UV Printer course that I released earlier this month.  

I am humbled by the positive feedback and demand for the course.  This tells me that the art and craft of traditional photography are alive and well.  That makes me very happy. 

I love making alternative prints.  I think they are very special because of the intimate hands-on process that it requires.

Follow me on my St. Francois Mountain Platinum Histograph Heirloom Fine Art Print Project where I am photographing the St. Francois Mountains that were formed by volcanic and intrusive activity 1.5 billion years ago.  By comparison, the Appalachians started forming about 460 million years ago, and the Rockies a mere 140 million years ago.
