We all have bonds to the places we know. From where we were born to where we call home, from the places we work to the places we play, from our windows on the world to where our hearts lie. Our geographic ties instil passion and pride as they provide a sense of identity and remind us of who we are and where we’ve come from. We all have a connection to some part of this special planet we share.
Landscape photography forms the perfect way to remind us of the places we love and as the name suggests, My Place in Print is this vision. The definition on ‘my’ says it all really:
my [maɪ] possessive determiner
Definition: of or belonging to me
And the ‘print’ part? Well, that’s all about getting great images into a form that can be shared and enjoyed by all. A photograph is never really going to be great if it’s not shared with anyone! So My Place in Print is the means to get the photos of the places we cherish onto our walls and into our lives, and not just some cluster of pixels on a screen in this digital era.
My Place in Print will stay true to its ideals and will not in time diversify to become just another stock photo site, selling all manner of photography. Hopefully it will create a name for itself in the niche governed by the Philosophy outlined above and by keeping it simple and doing this well – just brilliant landscape photography of the places we revere.
