Dakota Petersen Photography Has Gone Social!
I have exciting news for the gracious readers and followers of Face of Stone – Dakota Petersen Photography, my fledgeling business, is now integrated with Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and the small-store site Big Cartel! As of right now the three social sites only contain a placeholder from my trip through the West Fork (below), but with the next photo post they will all come alive and link together like some kind of internet daisy-chain, with special posts and updates every day (!) on each format so they stay interesting throughout the week. This is possible because of their more piecemeal approach to posting and viewing, especially Twitter, but whichever you follow, even if you follow just one, you’ll be sure to get a more in-depth view of what goes on here and out in the field. Of course, Face of Stone on WordPress will remain the nexus of information, hosting full-length posts and all the peripheral features you’ve come to love, but if you want something a little more personal or convenient then you know where to go.
The fourth site, Big Cartel, is an attempt to create a more user-friendly print ordering system for the more casual viewer, as well as a good place to host special collections over time. Because of the nature of the site I will only be offering a selection of prints, likely customized with each new post here, but at the moment I am only allowed five products. The store can increase in capacity to 25, 100, and even 300, but each of these costs $10 more per month and to get to that level I’ll need your help. So, to get the store rolling, I have issued a limited edition of 25 prints, five each of five photographs, featuring those which have stood out to me over the course of 2013. Each 8×12 photo is rendered in monochrome with a subtle split-tone coloration, and each will be signed, dated, and numbered in its series. Every print will be made to the same standards of quality as documented in the Store and shipped to you after signing. The price for a print is $50 with shipping included, so please consider supporting this venture and my photography in general by purchasing a print there, or ordering a custom print here.
