For years like many of you I have been a Luminous-Landscape loyal follower. I spent a lot of time reading articles and enjoying the Video Journals and even attended the LuLA workshops. Like yourself I am very passionate about photography. Through the forums and articles I have been able to enrich my knowledge of photography and share that knowledge when I can with others. I have been extremely fortunate to travel the path I have in this industry and now I am here, my last stop. Speaking for Micahel and now myself, we pour our hearts and souls into this site. Our passion is photography but our real joy is sharing that passion with 1.4 million readers a month.
This is the first I have spoken about my role here at LuLa and I want you to know that we have a lot of ideas to enrich everyones experience with our site. Michael and I are working on a very aggressive roadmap for the site. Together with Chris we know we will make the site even more beneficial for all those that have a passion for photography and find great joy in taking pictures. In the near future we will outline more of our plans and goals. Rest assured we are very busy behind the scenes developing new content and material that all should enjoy.
We are a small company and as with any company we have expenses and obligations. We float the boat sort of speak through advertising, workshops and our videos. While we offer much of our content free we do have to charge for some things. I know we have been a bit aggressive in our promotion for the Antarctica workshop. Our obligation to the cruise company for the trip dictates that we have to make this initial push. We are doing quite well too on this.
While I am sorry this may have annoyed some I need to stress that many of our readers only visit the Whatís New page only a few times a month thus we needed to make sure the push was there for those that only occasionally visit us. And, of course we will also be promoting our other products on a regular basis.
As I said we have a plan. We will evolve Luminous-Landscape with the goal in mind of offering our readers more benefits with both free content and content for sale. And, we will use ads and other means to promote these. We will also most likely have more advertisers. But, our advertisers will be those that our readers can most benefit from with a relationship. I promise you no Loose Your Belly Flab ads.
As time goes on Iíll have more to share. I am very excited about where we are headed. We have a number of excellent articles coming, new video content, more tutorials. Plus weíll have more workshops and some other surprises you should like. This site always meant a lot to me as the new publisher it means even more.
