I decided to arrange a Print Giveaway once again and this time it was only held on my Facebook photography page. I gave out two high quality Hahnemühle fine art prints. After a lottery pick out of almost hundred people, the winners turned out to be from Finland and Canada. So, here we have the two pictures that the winners selected and I set out to post them.
Thanks to internet and digital advancements, there's more and more publications and websites that support creative people and give them a chance to display their work. Under Republic is one of them and they are here for "Establishing a network of Artists, Musicians, and Iconoclasts." Sounds really good to me. Anyway, they were kind enough and asked me some questions and displayed some of my photos in their latest #10 issue.
Under Republic is an e-magazine and you can read it in here. If you want skip to my interview, it starts from the page 42. You can tell from the funky layout that these guys want to do things in their own way and that's always a good thing. I surely appreciate that they have my photography nicely presented on spread sheets too.

Gotta love social media. Boy, somebody had started a snowball of sharing of my photos the other day - in twitter, photo directories and whatnot. Then I see people pouring into my site from different blogs and photography/art community sites such as Shockblast.net. Feeling pretty humbled.
I already linked one of the articles on my facebook site, but since this blog is MY photoblog I think it's not too bad if I post some of the sites I found my photos shared from and people writing very nice things about my work. Even though you could say; "this is how social media works", it's also encouraging to get some nice feedback, nevertheless. I also got some new fans on my facebook page from numerous new countries and got about 70 twitter users sharing my work to their followers. So, thanks everyone! Here's some of the links that I found my photos from:
