Says their website: "MyParkPhotos.com is an acknowledgment to all of those who are dedicated at keeping thousands of American and Canadian park, wildlife refuge, forest and trail systems and their unique natural resources and cultural heritage in operation. As a photography community for these public lands, we seek to promote and support these properties through our photographs, articles and testimonials shared on this website."
Not only is the group's mission noble, but a great collection of talented photographers have signed on as members. Kudos to their charge.
However, NPS representatives were quick to explain that permits would be required only for film crews and for commercial photo shoots involving more than two people. However, there have already been reports of still photographers being challenged by park personnel who misunderstand the difference between photography that is commerical and photography that is fine art, editorial, etc. (In my visit last week to Bryce Canyon, Mount Rushmore and Badlands, I had no such trouble.)
Just a quick check-in from the road. I've been out for two days longer than expected, but have gotten some (hopefully) good work done. Was shooting in Bryce Canyon National Park on Sunday, Mount Rushmore and Badlands National Park on Monday, and possibly Chicago tomorrow.
I'll be traveling for the next week, including a possible shoot in Bryce Canyon National Park. Any print orders will be fulfilled immediately upon my return. Feel free to leave me messages, as I'll be checking both email and voice mail while I'm away.
The article, "Artfully Decorate with Feng Shui," details how to use the Chinese art of placement to choose photo prints for your decor. The article was graciously written by Beverly Marshall, a certified Feng Shui consultant and purveyor of Feng Shui products.
In the category of "Things I've Been Meaning to Figure Out For Years," I've finally installed a shopping cart on this website. This should make it easier for you to order prints, and easier for me to cater to your requests. It's a win-win deal.
In fact, the only party it's not easier on is PayPal, which processes the orders. But they get a cut of the transaction, so they can cope.
Also, I've altered the page menu at the left ó hovering over the Photo Gallery option now opens a sub-menu with links to all the galleries. It took me a while to get this to work, so I'm very happy with it. Please use it a lot, to make my toils worthwhile.
