It has been a very busy few weeks. Kasia and I have been working on a new photography platform – an idea that was formulated in our heads a long time ago but never got onto the drawing board. This year, that all changed.
We have both enjoyed running this blog and we cherish and value your readership and continuous patronage. However, we are aware that this form of presentation and interaction has its limits. And these are not the only obvious limitations in regard to content production, the publishing schedule or even interaction with our readers. Most importantly, there are restraints in relation to the lack of time and funding to provide new and original content.
From the start we decided that we want to share premier content without burdening you with ads and unnecessary visuals. To achieve just that, we made this blog 100% ad free. Our goal was to put imagery and the written word at the centre of our blog.
Last year, we came to the conclusion that an additional platform was needed. Many of you indicated this and encouraged us to go beyond the blog in the form of workshops or some other ideas. We listened.
Today, we are nearing the completion of a brand new, subscription-based travel, educational and mentoring platform. This special photography resource is based on a one-of-a-kind program that we have designed from the ground up. But it will be much more than that.
While most photography offerings are centred on technical know-how, Simplicity-In-Seeing provides a personal approach to photography, creativity, mastering composition skills, exploring natural light and interacting with the subject. The platform will also offer exclusive guides to the most magnificent photography locations in North America.
Most importantly, the goal of Simplicity-In-Seeing is to help photographers from all walks of life to experience the real joy of photography. Did we mention creating exceptional imagery?!
As we near completion, we feel excited and we cannot wait to share this new platform with you. Stay tuned for an official announcement early July.
In the meantime, please find more imagery (below) taken on our recent trip to Palouse (the Fuji X-Pro2 paired with the XF 50-140mm and Fuji X100S).
next time…Palouse in…B&W!
