Video About Truckee, Shopping Local, And Some Photos Of My Studio

I did not produce this video. However, a local Truckee photographer did - produced by Court Leve. Shared with permission (and by request).

Gallery 5830' and my work make a quick cameo in the video. It's a great look around our town's shops, a different view of Truckee than I normally share.

Speaking of shopping... It's not "local" but if you happen to be interested in buying prints with HIVE or other crypto, please message me. Gallery 5830' accepts certain cryptos for payment. I can as well. Shipping is available of course. Just shoot me a message to start the conversation!

Here's a behind-the-scenes look at some new prints getting produced in my little messy studio. One of the owners of Gallery 5830' asked for some new "abstract" prints. That is part of what inspired the recent abstract shoreline photo I posted about yesterday. That image will be a 20"x30" canvas on the walls of the gallery soon...

These canvas prints are coated in a UV and water resistant glossy coating that really makes the colors on the canvas pop. It also helps protect the prints when they get moved around, something that happens often when selling out of galleries.

I find it important to filter the coating before rolling it onto the prints. Little globs of slightly coagulated coating can ruin the look of a big print if it is allowed to get onto the print and dry there. I know from experience...

The prints will get a second coat in a few hours. And tomorrow I will stretch the canvas and then bring it to the gallery soon. Hopefully before Thanksgiving and "Black Friday". Downtown Truckee gets pretty busy that day, and I expect that the gallery will too.

Thanks for looking. Cheers!

Good luck with holiday sales 👍 I bet your friend could get some support from Amex for Small Business Saturday. Either production money or maybe some exposure in Amex ads.

Thank you!
Interesting campaign, just dove into a bit of research on that one. I plan on going to the gallery tomorrow so I will let them know. Cheers!

I always read your articles with interest.
I saw on the video that there are paintings hanging on the walls of the store. I understand that these are your paintings. Beautiful works.
A little indiscreet question - is this your business? I see that a lot of money has been invested in the equipment, I imagine the price of the plotter. In order for all this to pay off and make a profit, you need to have a good clientele who buys photo pictures, prints. And the price is probably quite high.
In my village I have a person who has been offering photos of the landscapes of our surroundings for many years. The first time I saw them was almost 20 years ago and I really liked them. But I've never seen anyone buy these paintings from him.

Thank you @apnigrich, I appreciate it. The photography studio is part of my business. The gallery is not mine, I just sell out of there. The photography print business can be busy at times, and slow at times. I also shoot real estate photography which helps keep me busy. Thank you again for reading, have a great day!
