Immense, Silent, and Sacred

I have released a beautiful 46-page 8″x8″ softcover book containing eighteen of my photographs exhibited during The National Park Service:100 Years-California Dreaming exhibition at the Viewpoint Photographic Art Center in Sacramento, California. These eighteen images span many years of my work in Death Valley National Park and Joshua Tree National Park.

Books purchased through my website are signed/autographed. Immense, Silent, and Sacred can be fully previewed at MagCloud. Please note than purchases through MagCloud are unsigned/not autographed. Digital downloads are also available.

It has never been easier or less expensive to own my photographs in print form (that’s a little more than $1 per photo). Many thanks in advance for your support and purchases!

Workshop Announcement: Visionary Death Valley. February 16 – 21, 2012

I am happy to announce my next workshop: Visionary Death Valley, February 16 – 21, 2012.

Death Valley National Park is a desert wonderland of immense scale, beauty and power. Its 3.3 million acres, the vast majority of which are roadless wilderness, encompass a staggering array of landscapes, unique geologic formations and colorful vistas. The largest National Park in the contiguous United States, Death Valley is both beautiful to behold and rich in history, mood and mystique. Its towering sand dunes, seasonally snow-capped mountains, warm springs and vast empty valleys offer endless opportunity for exploration and ample subject matter for the creative artist. There’s no place on Earth quite like it.

Internationally acclaimed photographer, author, and educator Guy Tal and I have carefully selected some of the park’s most unique locations for this workshop, and we’ll combine outstanding photography with inspirational, creative and technical discussion sessions. In addition to classes in the field, Guy and I will work individually with participants to address questions, assist with compositions, offer ideas, and share our knowledge. Discussions will include informative reviews and critique sessions of each participant’s images made during the workshop.

This workshop is sponsored by Chamonix View Cameras and Gura Gear, and all workshop participants are eligible for discounts on Chamonix view cameras and accessories and on Gura Gear camera bags.

Special Discount Offers in 2011

Despite being several years deep into our economic recession, the end does not appear near, and many are still without work long after having lost their jobs. We’re still deeply entrenched in a time where folks must weigh food for their families over photographs for their walls.

On a relative track, I recently received an email from James from Pennsylvania, who now owns two of my 8″ Mini-Prints. He had this to say:

Thank you for offering the lower priced open edition prints. I’m an amateur photographer and a lover of photography and with a young family, mortgage, etc. There isn’t a ton of money for purchasing original work from photographers, but it’s folks like you, Brooks Jensen, and Mike Johnston over at The Online Photographer with his print offers that make it possible for a lot of us who normally wouldn’t have access to good photography to amass small collections and enjoy the work as a daily part of out lives.”

After reading James’s message, I realized that I could go even further towards helping others own and collect my work. I will not be raising my prices in 2011 (nor did I in 2010), and effective January 1, 2011, all Mini-Print purchases can now be applied as a discount toward the future purchase of any Limited Edition print (maximum discount per Limited Edition print is $39). Similarly, if you buy one of my high quality posters for $25, I’ll also apply that $25 towards the future purchase of any Limited Edition print (maximum discount per Limited Edition print for poster purchases is $25). To take advantage of this offer, you’ll first need to buy a Mini-Print or Poster!

Not only can you now own more of my work for less dollars, it’s also a great way to “test drive” the quality of my photographs, prints, and finishing prior to committing a greater number of dollars to a larger purchase. Thanks for looking and shopping!
