What's New? Quite a bit.
For starters, I now work for PhotographyLife.com! This is a big deal for me. PhotographyLife is the single most reputable photography website on the planet, and it is one of the biggest, too. I am now part of the core group of editors, and I will be writing articles fairly often over there. Here is a link to their website, and here is a link to the article where they introduce me.
This means a couple of things for spencercoxphoto.com. First, I will continue to post articles here. Most of the new content on this site will consist of articles about specific images. For example, this article. Moving forward, most of my essays and tutorials will be on PhotographyLife.
Also, I am going to attend Northwestern University this fall! I do wish that there were more grand landscapes near Chicago, but I am looking forward to some cool cityscape photography. Chicago is great for galleries and connections in the photo world, so I am happy about that. Also, I have found some interesting natural areas outside the city that I am planning to explore, although they will be for hiking more than for photography. I am even thinking about branching out into taking street photos, but that may be too crazy for me : )
I have updated pricing information throughout the website, and I have added several new images to my galleries. I have also taken away several images from my galleries, since my tastes have changed. I eliminated the graffiti category from my galleries, and I have transitioned the best of those photos to my "Cities and Architecture" gallery. In its place, I have added a gallery where you can view all of my images on this site in alphabetical order, if that suits your tastes.
The Solstice Project, my attempt to sell $2500 worth of prints in a month (to fund a landscape photography expedition to Iceland) was barely a success. But it was a success! With less than twenty hours to go, I met my goal. So, yahoo! I will use the money to take aerial photos over the Icelandic coastline (from a helicopter), to bring a completely different perspective to my landscape images.
Busy times : )
