Bravo guys, I will sign up as soon as I see it is available.  It's a small price to pay to support the site we all know and love.  Frankly as I was reading the announcement I was worried about what the price would be ... but then to see $12, including videos!  Easily the best deal around [although you know, once we are paying customers we might start to demand more Schewe :)]

I welcome and support the change. As photographers, we hate when someone asks us to work for "exposure," i.e., for free. The site of this magnitude and significance in the photographic community is not cheap to run. The internet, in its infancy, spoiled us with free stuff. Time to pay for things worth paying. Let alone such an extremely reasonable amount as $1 per month.

I was cool with it until more Schewe......(note lack of smiley faces or any other inference to this being a joke)

Kiven,

Just saw your video and read the article about the site becoming a membership. I have to admit when I first starting viewing the video I thought the price would be to high. Howerver when you said only $12 a year and it included the videos I said WOW this a great deal.  That's just a couple of coffees at Star Bucks. I think this will be a great new way for Luminous Landscape. I assume that once you signup you will have access to all the current videos?  By the way I did not see where to signup so I assume this takes place on November 30th for joining? 

Cheers,

Stu

Outstanding idea guys. I've been supporting your work for many years, and will happily continue to do so in the future. Lula is the best photography related website ever. Period. I enjoy each and every one of your articles and videos, specially those with Jeff, which is a character on its own  ;) The new model is an incredible value.

Looking forward to it.

Many thanks.

Martin

Price is fair. Hope you make it. It's going to be interesting, since many will think they can get the same stuff elsewhere.

Totally reasonable (actually, well beyond totally reasonable) and I applaud you guys for a creative solution to the problem.

I was initially disappointed at this news until I saw the price, I feared it would mirror the $150 subscription for the videos which frankly was not good value.  However, $12 a year is exceptionally good value for the content offered and videos too!

Good luck with the new venture, I'll be along for the ride.

I too welcome and support this change. So I'll become a paying member soon.
But I am wondering, does this mean that the forums will become members only? If so, how will you entice new members into enrolling in case they cannot see the contents of the forums in advance?

You should offer a 'Charter Member' designation for the first year members, or a $15 membership with $3 of that going to the Endowment directly.

Don't mean to make things more complicated but I bet there's a lot of people who would be willing to pay a little more to give and get a little more.  ;)

Hey guys, here in the USA you can't buy a bottle of 20 OZ Coke for less than $1.69, so count me in!

Thanks Micheal, Kevin and Chris!

Well done to all of you. If you can make this work (and I suspect you can), I'll be thrilled with it. It's a great offer.

Fair enough.
