I am excited/happy to announce that this Tuesday I will be signing paperwork and delivering files which will make a new deal official.
A line of myto be sold in popular religious bookstores
I will be working with a wholesale company that sells to book/art stores which cater to members of /aka "Mormons"
The wholesale company is one of the primary distrubutors for stores such as Deseret Book and Seagull Book. So hopefully within a few weeks you'll start seeing my pictures show up for sale at these stores.
May I add… for less than they would cost if you bought them straight from me. (it's a quantity thing)
This is what I like to call a low-bandwidth move. (Meaning it won't take a lot of my time and effort but will yield great results)
The wholesale company will print, frame and package all these prints and distribute to these bookstores. They will also meet with these stores to decide which of the line of temple images they would like to carry as well as provide booklets with all images available for either in person searching or online.
Build the name
What I was most impressed with was this companies desire to build my name in this market which essentially has only one other prolific Temple Photographer in bookstores.
I'm thankful to all those that shared my SLC at night picture on FB (the one with the cityscape featuring Temple Square) … they shared it and someone who makes decisions at Deseret Book saw it and wanted to have it for their store and that triggered this chain of events.
Was taken last night… on a night that I thought was going to be a wash… but turned out about 4-5 images that I really like.
Getting things ready
So before my meeting on tuesdday I have to prepare all the temple pictures that they'll be using for the launch of the line of pictures.
Lots of work to do on a week that I'm prepping to leave to Bolivia and finishing up a couple final wedding edits.
Now I need to search through the large catalog only a part of which is represented here: http://smu.gs/zLW9yS
