I love receiving mail that isn't a bill or spam. I thought why not take some of my photography, make postcards out of them, and write a personal message.
It doesn't have have to be for yourself. It can be as an unexpected gift or surprise for someone you know. If it is a gift I'll try and work in a note from you the backer. I could also pen a love poem/note for you. (warning: the image will be picked at random so I can't guarantee a sweet or romantic image should you choose that option.) I guess I could also break up for you over a postcard. That seems to have more personality than a text message or email.
I'm typically a portrait, children, and wedding photographer. I do take random photographs of things that interest me. Odd bits of beauty, and things that just caught my eye. Over the next 30 days I will be combing through my backstock of images for the postcards. These images will be gathered from close to 20 years of photography, if I can find a box of old 110 from ages ago. The images will come from digital cameras, cell phone, 35mm, 120mm, 110mm film, x-ray film, and photo paper.
I plan on having somewhere between 60 and 120 unique images. If I have more than 120 backers I might dig further, or I might recycle some of my more favorite images. I seriously doubt there will be repeats that anyone will notice.
The money will cover my production costs, and the extra will go toward those lovely school loans that seem to always be there.
