“Aren’t you afraid that some one might download your photos and print it themselves?” This is the common question I’ve been hearing from some of the people who have seen my website. They sometimes even advice me to right click protect my pictures.
They just worry about me. They understand the kind of time and effort that I’ve spent on shooting pictures, creating my images, building this website and maintaining it. I must say I really appreciate the concern. If people want to take my pictures and print for themselves, that’s fine. It’s not the end of the world. I actually think that’s kind of nice. May be someone likes an image they found on this website so much that they want a small print of it for themselves. May be they have only little money, hence they might prefer to take prints on their own. They know they are not getting the best quality of a Limited Edition copy, but at least they get to enjoy the art. After all, that’s the primary reason of my website. To share my art, with the world.
I’m not afraid, and I don’t want to live in fear. I believe the world is mostly full of people who would rather do the right thing for the artist and see the good reasons to buy a print.
- Purchasing a print ensures it is Limited Edition and more rare. This makes each one unique and a collector’s item.
- Purchasing a print supports the artist directly, who most people know spend a lot of time, effort, and finances to produce the imagery.
- Purchasing a print results in a vastly superior print, which can come on canvas, high-quality fiber-paper, or metal, and comes in various types of sizes and with different finishing styles
These are good enough reasons for me to purchase a print. I know that there are mostly good people out there. Thus we provide reasonable options.
