    I'm a printmaker with a degree in painting, who has always been into photography. Confusing? It makes me confused sometimes too.

    My most recent work is a photogravure series (polymer) about a Grand Canyon trip one winter on the Colorado River. The portfolio is about half way finished, and I'm trying to figure out how to raise the money to complete it (very expensive to make the full edition of each image). I have a Kickstarter thing going to try to do that, but not sure how to promote it.

    I am a part-time University teacher (looking for a full-time position).

    My website is here
    http://www.ARTandWATER.com

    I've lurked on this site for years. Thought it would be good to actually join up and introduce myself.

    Why should you be confused? Just complete your portfolio and do what you can with the budget available. You may promote it with early release/publication of some of your initial images.

    Print quality is excellent with compositions. Lay your project in time and may be a book completes it.
    Welcome from Istanbul, hot, humid and nothing cool you.
