    Where is APUG's Sales Gallery?

    I've been thinking of offering some prints
    for sale via APUG's sales gallery. After
    searching today I could not find it.
    Has it been dropped? Dan

    Yes... I think it became a bit of a headache for Sean for a variety of reasons. Not sure if it will return in some form.

    i tried to make a income out of my own images once , many years ago.

    decided id rather chew of my own foot.

    i then decided to make my living from printing other peoples pictures using English photo magazines to advertise, that worked well but i had cut it a bit fine with my start up cash and ran out of money so moved to new zealand :0)

    i then realized my true calling and that was to buy every discarded camera i could find and make them good again and resell them as a dealer

    i started 4 years ago in new zealand, full time and made great money there, i then moved to amsterdam and started up the same business , buying out of one of the richest seams of photo gear i have ever seen.

    it has had a great effect on my own photography due to having access to all the gear i need and i have a full large format darkroom in my house.
    i am now once again advertising my commercial photo printing service to my camera customers.
    printing all film material up to 5 x 7 inch negs .

    i know that i wouldnt be taking pictures now if i hadnt gotten my screwdrivers out and started to bring all of those lovely old cameras back to life

    i love photography not taking photos

    I make my entire living from photography, but I have to admit it is 100% color now, a combination of film and digital. I shoot b/w almost exclusively for my personal art.

    My income is 100% B&W portrait / people photography, both commissioned and commercial.
