Redbubble.com is a site where photographers and artists can display their work for sale on prints, posters and cards. There are groups within the site which feature specific themes. Two of my images, both composites, were featured in groups this week.
She Walks in Beauty was featured both in Simply Horses and Equine Art and Photography. That's my lovely Mouse of course!
Gentle on my mind, which features both Red Riley & Mouse, was featured in Equine Art & Photography.
I'm launching a new magazine, The Tennessee Equestrian, on February 15th. It will be like a beautiful, classy yellow pages for the Tennessee horse owner. It will have listings for every equine professional, service, and product imaginable. It will also have show listings and information on organizations and events by breed, discipline and open shows. And it won't just be a directory for equine needs, there will also be informative and entertaining articles on a wide variety of equine interests, a travel guide and map for the equine traveler and trail rider, and we're hoping to include a stallion directory and product reviews. The best thing about all of this, besides the fact that it will be such a comprehensive, go-to guide for everything horse, is the fact that all of this will be available for FREE!
I plan to pay for publication and all other costs through ads and listings. This will be a way for those in equine businesses to reach a much broader range of their target audience and to let them know exactly what they offer. And it is also a very economical way to advertise your service or wares because listings start at just $15 and there will be discounts for multiple full page ads. Also, after publication, both ads and the magazine itself will be available on the website as well as distributed at horse businesses, events and shows across the state. Web listings are free with the purchase of a listing or ad.
And, best of all, all of this comes in a beautiful, glossy, high quality, full-color package that the horse owner will not only keep close at hand for all of the information and articles but because of how attractive it is and enjoyable to read and view.
I've launched the blog for the magazine and a fan page on facebook. I'm currently working on the website as well as revamping all of my websites and I hope to have that ready for view by the end of this week and ready to take orders for ads and listings by credit card by the 16th. Check out the blog and fan page for more information and updates and contact me if you want more information, 865.458.1420 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Not only were photos of both of my boys featured in two groups this week....first time ever having two features in one week: Riley, Shake, Shake, Shake in the Backyard Photography group and Django, The Weather Outside in Frightful, in Equine Portrait Photography group....but also my collaboration with Geno Praag, The Storm of Passion, has topped over 6000 views!! It is a composite work featuring two photos of mine, Mouse's eyes and fire, and a beautiful shot from Geno of two battling wild stallions in the Utah desert. Thanks to all who made this happen.
