Robert M Worth Jr, Grand Rapids Michigan Member Since August 2008 Artist Statement FIRST, I'm a Publicist. That is one who works with other photographers, both amateur and professional, by invitation only, to market their art through our portals. We do not charge them for this service although we do have contracts with each photographer giving us permission to be their Publicist and posting of their work on retail store fronts.
SECOND, I'm a firm believer in providing a quality product that buyers will enjoy and cherish for many years. My goals are to help others achieve many of the things I've struggled with in achieving without a helping hand. Maybe, just maybe, I can short cut that path for others. At least they believe in my optimism and are willing to allow me and my Brands to move forward with them.
THIRD, Photo Marketing USA is about helping other artists display their best works in galleries within their own web sites as well as through our various portals and portfolios.
My company's values include inviting those photographers which have an eye for the unusual, the mundane, and every day scenarios which they bring to life in their work.
Take a look at the photos from Ken DeJonge who takes photos as a hobby. He especially likes to take his camera where cameras should not go - into the caverns beneath the surface where there is cool moist air. His photography brings to life the life down under. Ken takes long hikes into the world of taking time to "smell the roses" capturing the beauty which surrounds us.
Or the photography from Mike Bacon, who in his retirement years, contributes his time to volunteer projects as a member of the board of directors for a local community television. Mike travels to far off places like South Africa, Italy, Germany, and Japan. His photos are striking, unique, and captures the essence of his targets. His macro shooting is just as bright where he brings us into the world of micro photography. We see the beauty of his subjects where they leave lasting impressions on our minds.
All of our photographers have unique gifts. Be sure to visit their galleries and if you see something that you like, posters including canvas and other entities are available for your purchase. Otherwise, enjoy the beauty.
FOURTH. While this beautiful retail site says we (I) own the copyright to the images, I only own the copyrights for the ones which I've taken as photographs. The others belong to the respective photographers and artists identified within the galleries as well as the individual artwork. The photographers understand these terms as they are spelled out within the contracts we have with each one.
