Beverly Hills to Century City

Daily Photo – Beverly Hills to Century City

This image was from a fun day with some friends a few years back in LA. I was there for some work for a collector of my Fine Art and was able to have an impromptu photo shoot with some friends at the collector’s house. This is Sacha, and over there in the background you can see Century City surrounded by the flatness that is LA. (I also remember we recorded this afternoon in 360 for Passport subscribers, so if you saw that back then you got a peek behind the scenes of this awesome home.)

San Francisco at Dusk

Daily Photo – San Francisco at Dusk

I spend a lot of time in San Francisco trying to work out how to get into the higher buildings, sometimes it’s as easy as just booking a hotel room, usually though it involves a lot of persuasion with the staff in a lobby. Always a fun challenge. 🙂

California?

Daily Photo – California?

This photo is tagged “california”, so I have to assume that’s where I took it… but I have no recollection of doing so… and therefore, no idea where in California it is. If it’s even there. Tag your photo’s properly people. It will help you later!

Pacific Coast Highway. USA.

Daily Photo – Pacific Coast Highway. USA.

5:30 AM. Alarm goes off. It’s always painful. People that say they are “morning people” — I think they are lying. But, when in a beautiful place like here along the Pacific Coast Highway in California, I always force myself, military style, to pop out of bed. On this occasion, my room had a little fireplace and everything which made it even harder to get out of bed! After I got downstairs, I started a little hike to get a good vantage of the coast and the sunrise.

Secret Beach. USA.

Daily Photo –

This spot is well known to people that photograph the Big Sur region a lot, but it remained unknown to me for a very long time! Even though I have shot in the Big Sur area many times, this spot always eluded me. So, when I parked and started the short walk, you can imagine how excited I was to find such a beautiful scene right under my nose!

My Million Dollar Art Drop

What a crazy couple of days! Those of you who read the last newsletter or some recent posts will know that I launched a new collection of NFTs on OpenSea this past Tuesday. It’s my fourth drop overall after some experimentation previously on Foundation, MakersPlace and another on OpenSea. They were all great learning experiences (and exceeded expectations) and this week was no different.

The short version is that in 2 days, split over the 50 Cities/NFTs in the collection, over $1million USD was processed. My thanks to any of you who got involved, it’s really incredible and we are full of gratitude. Today, along with there being some items still available on the first and secondary markets, there are 4 auctions ending (LA, Moscow, Tokyo and Paris) if you want to get involved in the fun.

As I’ve mentioned in previous mails, I think NFTs are certainly something artists and collectors should be getting involved with now. The potential is huge, and I think it will be a big part of the art world in the future. That, along with giving back to other artists, is why I’m now investing in other NFT projects. I know it can be a bit daunting though, so I’ll be producing a bunch of how-to videos and recaps of my experience so far for Passport Subscribers. There are already 3 or 4 available which can be viewed after signing up ($9.99 a month, cancel any time, and on top of those NFT videos you get access to all of my tutorials to stream, preset downloads, eBooks and a weekly video which can be anything from processing tips to behind the scenes of helicopter rides in 360.). Once you’re in there, check this page for quick links to the previous NFT videos.

In terms of getting yourself involved in this drop… it’s fairly simple. You’ll need an electronic wallet (MetaMask is one that works with most NFT sites, others are available so definitely read some comparison articles). You’ll also want a way to get Crypto in/out from the “real world” and services like Coinbase are used for that (again, there are alternatives so do a bit of reading to see what’s best for you). If you’ve got questions, drop into my new Discord collectors group where there are a bunch of awesome, friendly people who will be happy to help. Feel free to join and just lurk or chat too as you ease yourself into this wild new world as a collector or creator.

*On re-reading this I just realised I automatically #’d NFT… too much posting on Crypto Twitter. Time to go take a solo lockdown walk…
