During the last two weeks of August I will be in Colorado on a project photographing ghost towns and old mining towns. This request for backing would allow me to rent a full frame high resolution camera such as the Sony A900 (or possibly a Nikon or gasp! a Canon) and some lenses. The Sony A900 and the lens would cost over $6,000, so I am hoping, with your support, to rent for this project. As a backer of this project you will receive your choice of prints from this project. All prints will be printed on the Epson 3800 printer on Ilford Gold Silk Fiber paper, and mounted, and matted, using Rising conservation mat board. My signature will be on the mat, as well as on in the boarder of the print. Black and white prints will be made using Epson’s advanced B&W print mode, which is just awesome. For those that back at the $75.00 level, I will be producing one Limited Edition Print from this portfolio. There will only be 25 of these prints made ever. Also, this will be my first Limited Edition Print. The first person to back at this level will receive print 1/25, and so fourth.
