Three years ago I had a holiday print sale of an image that many people had seen and enjoyed, but was not part of a limited edition or larger project. Therefore making it available for purchase for gifts or whatever, unlimited, at a very reasonable price worked out very well. Again this year I have [...]

The main points if you don’t want to put up with my rant- The process is not complete yet and could potentially be altered between now and December 19th. The FBI interfered with public opinion with false implied pronouncements at just the right time. An unfriendly foreign power worked with the “winning” campaign. He did [...]

Guidpost people

These two are extremely different, and extremely similar, though neither would probably want to admit it! Paul says he’s on the wrong planet, Bill “exists on a plane elsewhere and visits occasionally when pressed”… yet somehow they resonate with me so much more than anything of the contemporary “norm”. Analysis undermines.. Bill- “The only thing [...]

Brief and introductory talk and Q&A at Google, Kirkland WA, accompanying a guest exhibit at Google Kirkland, WA, in April and May of 2016.  The video is simply the eleven images in the order shown, then an attempt to bring various images up that may relate to the topics as they come up. The talk [...]

Place to Print

Spoiler alert- brevity seems beyond me. I’ve been thinking of a write-up like this for some time. Coincidentally without intent there seems to be quit a bit of support material surrounding this one image, so this is an indulgence about one piece of work, from place to print.

Snapshot blabla

I post a lot of snapshots to Facebook, simple pictures of noticed moments. When many of us were very young and had some little plastic camera we’d innocently photograph anything, a sunset, a friend making a goofy face, a flower, mountain… no thought to whether it amounts to anything, just found moments remarkable enough to [...]

The Fine Photographic Print: Possibilities and Intention at Newspace Center for Photography September 27, 2015 With the workshop date approaching, I’d like to touch on some of the things participants will get [...]

Last November I contributed guitar to a live performance by ambient music artists Marc Barreca and K. Leimer. In addition I prepared videos to accompany the music, that were projected above the stage, utilizing many of my landscape images. They later used this live performance material mixed with newly created music to release “Field Characteristics” [...]

Lenswork Podcast

Looks like LensWork used one of my images for a podcast. Brooks Jensen always contributes so much to the high standards of photography. I value having been published by them and included in any way at all. http://daily.lenswork.com/2014/10/podcast-875-kalaloch-wa-by-tyler-boley.html Lenswork has been an example of, and supporter of, a real commitment to photography and those who [...]

Since going through this process throws light on several issues, some perhaps peripheral, but important, I decided to post the process. Everything from why it was required, through execution and completion may be applicable to others in a variety of situations. When I first started inkjet printing there were no good coated fine art papers [...]
