So, once upon a time, many years ago, before Lensblr and even The Photographers Directory, if you can grasp such a concept ; ) Tumblr was a pretty bleak place for photographers posting original work, and so to help find each other a few of us started compiling lists … hence The List which I feature on both my blogs.
If I follow you and you’re not on the list, please don’t be offended, it’s either an oversight or I started following you after I made my last update, which isn’t very often I must admit.
If you’d like to be added, just give me a nudge, this will expedite things greatly, as I don’t have a lot of free time these days!
Edit : Tina makes a valid point, it’s too long and hard to navigate and I am working on that, will attempt to add genres ( black and white, street, abstract, etc. ) to add some order to the general mush!
thesnew asked: i'm just going through your entire photographers to follow! good idea, more people should do one. I recently unfollowed everyone (i had 3 years of accumulated follows which was done mostly without thought, so a lot of noise!) it's good to see a well compiled list so i can start rebuilding!
Ah The List … I must warn you it’s only updated periodically so there’s a lot of new blood not included here, I will rectify that soon! On this blog I try to give you a good mix of old friends and new finds, and welcome photographers getting in touch with me to have me check out their blogs.
… just in case my lovely followers over here aren’t familiar with my reblog blog, which only showcases original photographers I follow here on Tumblr. I am always on the hunt for new inspiration so please feel free to contact me if you’re posting original work and I’m not following you or haven’t been to see you in a while! Jules
I used my smug mug account where I sell my prints, as I didn’t want to send the same card to everyone, but this was a pricey way to go, each card cost me $2, plus shipping, plus the stamps. I ended up sending 100 cards, but this was spread over several orders as I didn’t expect the kind of response I got.
What I loved was the really creative ways other photographers went about replying to my cards, creating their own using simple prints stuck on cardboard backing, or some just sent the print directly in the mail, and it all came through, most survived better and less damaged then my postcards! If I was going to do it again I think I’d go the home-made route, so much love and creativity went into these, I treasure them all, and really miss my daily dose of real mail.
Good luck with your project! Jules xoxo
