Are you a postcard person? Do you love to send and receive postcards from family and friends?
I do (even though I have been really bad at it - #momlife). I love walking around the streets of a new town and look for the perfect postcard. However, I rarely find IT. I found a lot of ugly ones and a lot of boring ones. Usually, I end up buying the more artsy ones, unless I know the person collects ugly postcards =)
Well, if you have visited or long for visiting Portugal, Denmark, Iceland or Hawai’i, look no more. Today I am releasing sets of prints for these countries+state for you to have at home and send to your beloved ones. Get them while they’re still very cheap! They’re now available in my store.
Here’s a sneak peek.
Let me tell you a secret: my previous store was a joke.
No, I’m kidding. It wasn’t a joke, but it sure felt like it. I was depending on third parties to print my photographs and send them to you. I didn’t like that, but, back then, I thought I didn’t have any other options.
Today I am releasing my new store, which means that, if you purchase any of my products, you will be in direct contact with me and me ONLY! No third parties involved! Yupiii!
Of course this also means that my sets of prints are limited to the selection I offer and to the number of prints I have in stock. But do not be shy to ask for another photograph you do not see on the website, OR to ask for one you see but it’s marked as sold out or it is not in the size you want. It may take a little longer to get to you, but I will make sure it gets to you.
So go check it out and let me know what you think. For now, I’ll leave you with the selection of fine art prints I have in stock. I’ll be adding other products later in the year. Stay tuned =)
Those that know me in person know that I have been very drawn to minimalism in the last months, perhaps even a year. It basically means that I am on a quest to a more meaningful life with less.
I don’t remember exactly where I heard about it first, but I know that, in a very short period of time, I binged on dozens of episodes of the “The Minimalists” podcast. They focus “on making room for more: more time, more passion, more creativity, more experiences, more contribution, more contentment, more freedom. Clearing the clutter from life’s path helps us make that room.” They inspired me to get rid of the clutter around me.
While seeking the path to less clutter and more of what really matters, I decided to change my website, and that is why I have a new face. The design you see now was always my goal, but I ended up getting distracted by a different one - a noisier one.
It took me months to get to a stage I was happy with, including a few hours (throughout maaaany months) discussing and brainstorming about my new logo. I am lucky to have friends with good taste that happen to be graphic designers. [Thank you so much, guys!] These two friends are working on my logo and I am so grateful for it. I will share it when it’s ready.
The website is built on format.com, which focuses on professional artists, designers, illustrators, photographers, and models. I am very happy with it. I have ventured on learning HTML a year ago (which I successfully completed through codecademy), but, for now, I decided to focus on building a website that really reflects what I want to share, therefore I needed a platform that would make my job easier and still provide a clean, minimal and functional website to my visitors.
I do hope you like the change. I still have my many doubts and insecurities when it comes to photography (specially analogue photography), but this is a step towards changing that. Of course I will need your help, so please do share and make sure you check my instagram.
