Marshall's Photos For Sale!!!

Hey everyone, if I had a nickle for how many times I've been told by people that they wish they could buy some of Marshall's photos, I'd have a lot of nickles. Well, this is Marshall's big announcement (which I stole from his blog). The majority of his photos are from his most recent trip to Ethiopia (Lalibela and Bahir Dar), though he has included some beautiful photos from Hawaii, San Diego and Yosemite as well. 100% of the proceeds go to Charity:Water. The site allows you to pick your photo, pick your size and then choose whether or not to have it framed. You buy it from the site and it ships it directly to you.

The Big Day!

I'm going into business! Well, not quite, but I've decided to offer some of my images for sale. I struggled with this because it has never been my desire to make money from my images. At the same time, I would like to offer a way for people to enjoy them in their own home, and share them with their friends and family. Also, I truly feel that until an image is printed and hung on a wall, it's not quite complete. After researching my options I decided to go with Zenfolio for hosting and providing a store front. One of the things that sold my on Zenfolio was their use of Mpix for image printing. I have used Mpix for every print in my house and am constantly amazed by the quality and consistency of their work.

Here's the link!!


Is there a markup on the prices? Yes. While I don't want to make money for myself, I believe these images can not only inspire and add beauty, but be used for a greater cause. To that end, 100% of the profits will be donated to my favorite charity, charity:water. Some of you may remember my fundraising campaign for them last year. This is a such a transparent and well run charity that is really making an impact for those that don't have access to clean water.

A big thanks to all those who've expressed interest in buying prints and to those who've encouraged me to take this step!
