Yesterday morning, we were thrilled to see that our very own Richard Steinberger is being featured on Fstoppers, one of the country's most popular online photography websites. In fact, Fstoppers reaches 4.5 million photographers worldwide — if it were a magazine, it would be one of the largest in the United States. So we're very proud of him!
When you have a chance, check out the article. It includes a killer video and variety of still images from his Boston Whaler photoshoot last year in the Pacific Northwest, and it even mentions our "Home: Cheyenne River" Kickstarter campaign! In the interview, Richard comments, “Sometimes you have to go back and remember why you picked up a camera in the first place... yes, shooting ad campaigns can definitely be fun and rewarding, but shooting a personal project like this does more for you because it feeds your soul. Bringing food to the table is important, but sometimes it’s worthwhile to be part of something that is so much bigger than that.”
That's how we all feel about this project. It's something bigger than we are. It's been a true labor of love for the last two-plus years, and we're so eager to see it finished and in people's hands. We're so close... we have just two and a half weeks to go.
In other news: We just added the rest of our portraits to this website. Until now, the only images available for online viewing were the photos featured in our "Home: Cheyenne River" art exhibition, but we decided to include the rest of the portraits so that site visitors could get a sense of the range of community members included in the project.
And finally, welcome to our new backers: Virginia Santo, Tammy Eagle Hunter, Carol & Luca Fabbri, Wendy Luce, Patricia Glennon, Dawn Levinson, Nola Lee Kelsey, Michael B Spencer, Julia, Ellen Pietsch, Patrick Cantellow , Sharon E. Streeter, Laure Lachaud and Dorothy Buquo! Your pledges and support mean so much to us. Please help us continue to spread the word... we can do this!
