I could add that it is difficult also to make any sales from a Facebook photo page, no matter how many links you make back to your homepage with interesting materials. But that is not the essential argument; for me it is the diminishing organic reach and the low image quality on Facebook that has bothered me for some time.
Here is my new Pinterest profile. I’ve posted some ‘boards’ with my own photographs, since I want to reach out to potential customers there – 80% of whom are women by the way. In the very near future, I’ll begin to “pin” images, text and videos that I like – all around the issue of art in general and photography, of course, in particular.
Perhaps you on Pinterest already? Perhaps you’d like to be there when you see its richness and potentials? If so, let’s pin…!
Dear art photo friend
Long time, no hear from me! However, let me tell you what’s going on and how I develop my photography.
Iran – more photos, no bombs
Returning from Iran with 3,000 shots, there was quite some work to do on a small selection.
See the first few here. I sense it will be a long-term project – also to do public education to prevent that some ignorant politicians start destroying this fabulous culture and people – more than they already have with their threats and their economic sanctions. I hope to return to Iran rather soon.

Homepage for Viggo Rivad
I have developed a homepage for my 90-year old mentor, Viggo Rivad, as a small token of my gratitude. In addition to being the Grand Old Man of Danish photography, Rivad ought to be recognized internationally for his remarkable devotion to the art of photography since he took his first picture in 1946. I’m happy I could be the one who provides him with the first decent presence on the Internet and thereby a window of opportunity worldwide. Check it out here – and do write a greeting to him. It will warm his heart and mine! Here’s a post with a little more of my gratitude to Viggo
Thank you, Anders
My old printer died a natural death and I had to search for a new second-hand, better printer. Took three months to find it. My dear friend Anders Jönsson served once again as my adviser and fine-tuned the connections between computer, screen colours and printer and even done hand-made colour profiles. Wow! Thanks a lot, Anders! Continue reading
