A Road Less Travelled

CREATING A PASSIVE INCOME IN 2015 – A SLIGHT DETOUR ON THE ROAD TO BECOMING A FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHER

So I’ve decided to take a detour in 2015 and concentrate on developing three passive income streams which will allow me to travel with more time to pursue my interests as a photographer and a writer. To do this, I’m looking to add value to the photographs I capture – not just to create an immediate return but to create an on-going return that will require less involvement on my part after, say, five years.

Here, as I did about this time last year (https://kirklandphotos.com/?p=3381) , is me using the new year to review and focus my ambitions.

CLOSING SHOP ‘TIL FEBRUARY 2015

Our working year ends tomorrow and with 13 assignments completed, including two ocean cruises, I’m looking forward to spending some time at home (where travel photographers go for their holidays).

PHANTOM SALE – IS THIS WHAT A $6.5 MILLION PHOTO LOOKS LIKE?

It’s official (at least if you believe the press release from his PR company, you accept the loot was forked out by an anonymous buyer and that there has been no creditable verification of the sale), that Peter Lik’s black and white photograph titled “Phantom” (above) has sold for US$6.5 million.

“THOR” WREAKS HAVOC IN AUSTRALIAN HIGH COUNTRY PHOTO SHOOT

Not so remarkably you might suggest, the stylist all but fled at the end of the assignment. And my client, who I asked to steady a lighting stand in the middle of the tempest not even thinking it would act as a lightening rod, said she never hugged her children so tightly when she finally got home.

ACTOR WINS LEAD ROLE IN VICTORIA HIGH COUNTRY PHOTO SHOOT

From the moment he turned up, Steve Murphy wanted the lead role in the Victorian High country photo shoot.

It was always going to be him – an actor (and a Qantas steward in-between gigs) – plunging down that mountain ravine leaning back on his horse in that classic scene from The Man from Snowy River movie.

The only problem was we didn’t have a horse and the tourism authority wanted to move on with something fresh (i.e. great food, hiking, the High Country scenery).
