I am now a verfied member of the Society6 community of artists, which provides a micro-patronage for members producing art in a variety if media from photography, to painting, to graphic art, etc.
Society6 provides me with a virtual gallery in which I can display my work and generate support. The more viewers who like my photoographs and ‘promote’ them, the higher up on the “charts” the images will rise. My studio allows viewers to follow my progress, and hiopefullyc build the artist-viewer relationship even further. So far its going quite well, with one image already on the front page of the photography section and another accepted as a print for sale via Urban outfitters.
My Society6 studio can be found here
Many of the better photographs from the blog have found there way on here and it provides a perfect forum for me to sell prints, stretched canvases, ipad & laptop cases, iphone cases and even T-shirts whilst at the same time still owning the work.
Please go and have a look at the wonderful artwork on display from some very talented individuals!
