“His images throughout the book are stunningly alive with light.” Rick Darke (American Gardener review of American Meadow Garden)
Viewing your photography is like having a butterfly land on my hand. it allows me to examine nature in a fresh way that feels deeply privileged. bravo! – Debra Lee Baldwin
The Supporting Membership
These are exciting times to be a photographer, a publisher, a journalist, an artist. I find myself working on many projects at once, which I have come to call a Living Book. It is a self directed path generally outside the realm of smart business: you can follow the project development for free right here.
I hope you find it interesting and informative but more than that, I hope you will support my work. I have a very modest membership subscription with thank yous that begin with a handwritten note and includes access to a private Library.
PhotoBotanic is a publishing site for e-books, but these books are developed without any sort of publisher advance and are on the fringe of traditional publishing. Some of the books I think are important – the Summer-Dry Project is designed to promote sustainable gardening practices, and the Photo Florilegium is a new process of botanic illustration.
I don’t expect all the ideas I explore, and all the article I write, will become incorporated into a book that I will sell. I don’t know if the books will sell. So I ask for your support.
Please join the mailing list, and comment on any article you find interesting, buy something in the Store, and if you can, support me with a paid subscription.
Membership comes with a few special perks but I hope you will think of it as a modest $5 a month magazine subscription to content you enjoy. Subscribers will get a free copy of every new e-book while you are a member and the best discounts to all books. You will receive a monthly newsletter summarizing, magazine style, all the recent articles with link to special membership Library and promotions.
