   Just been having a look at my print and download sales so far this year (cuz thats the sort of exciting life I have folks :P (Lick) )

They're about half what they were this time last year , but I'm still very pleased so if anyone who may have bought something is reading this - thank you! :D (Big Grin)

Which leads me to the main purpose of this journal -
As everyone knows , DA prints are (imo) very expensive. Does this reduce or limit potential sales much?
Been thinking about setting up print sales myself online - having done some research, I could potentially supply prints of a comparable quality at a much reduced selling price (but increased profits for me)
Anyone have any experience / thoughts / ideas on the subject? I'd be very interested to hear any :) (Smile)

But anyway, this is what people have felt compelled to buy so far in 2014 :) (Smile)

And feel free to link me to your fb pages or send a friend request :thumbsup: :)


In other news - I have recently been diagnosed with a 'health issue' (nothing too serious) that is going to slow me down for a while. I've had to cancel 4 upcoming shoots (though i have a couple still in the diary) :peace:

Hazard Kitty 227 by Dave-Ellis
No, I'm not doing 2 million shoots :P but I'm pleased to say I've now passed 2 million page/image views here which I'm pretty proud of :)

June was a good month with excellent shoots with pixielovesyou , Katie Green , Hannah Clare and MadameBink

However, things for July are kicking off again from tomorrow :)
Shooting with...

Time to start getting serious!!

Aim High - the biggest truth is that you need to believe in yourself in this industry and that you invent yourself, and control the way others see you. No one will open any doors for you - you have to go kick them down yourself :D

I spent the last half of 2013 in a self defeating funk of negativity and damaged confidence. I could elaborate on this but its no good crying over spilt milk - you live and learn
But 2014 has started with a bang and i've worked with some wonderful people so far who have gone a long way towards restoring my confidence and self belief.

Helen Diaz 5 by Dave-EllisAimie 9 by Dave-EllisAkari Desire 2 by Dave-Ellis
Hannah Clare 2 by Dave-EllisPagan Kitty 285 by Dave-EllisZombie Candy 9 by Dave-Ellis



over the coming two months i'll be working with more new faces - Ms Poly, Laura Ford, Becca Brown and Akasha
and some familiar ones - OooRah, Zombie Candy, Hannah Clare, and of course my main partner in crime, Hazard Kitty :)

Other News.....

In the spirit of kicking down doors and getting serious .. A number of positive things have begun to come together :)

I've been asked by a major publisher to submit some images 'for consideration' for a book currently being put together titled '21st Century Nude Photography' - now we all know that its a hell of a giant step from submission to publication - but fingers crossed. This scenario also has implications for the distribution of the second edition of my 'Art Nudes' book which will hopefully be together by the end of April.

Its also open season on magazine submissions! :D I'm currently in the process of putting together 7 or 8 of these in the coming few weeks (some are by invitation, some are on 'the fly') and I have also been approved to submit images to a very high end international fashion mag - again extremely difficult to get work accepted, but you cant win the game if you're not playing ;)

:peace:

Hello All :)

Was really pleased to see my gallery has now received 100,000 favourite adds - really proud of that - thanks to everyone for their support :heart:

Lots of new shoots coming up in Feb/March with Aimie Twyford, Akari Desire, Hazard Kitty, Helen Diaz (tbc) and Hannah Clare :)

Shoots

After returning to action last week with awesome shoots with Hazard--Kitty and ZombieCandy-model Its going to be a busy couple of months :)

Shoots Coming Up -  Rest Jan -  Hazard Kitty / Zombie Candy / Raphaella WithLove (tbc)

                               February - Hannah Clare / Fangasmgal / Aimie Twyford / Akari Desire

                               March - Hazard Kitty

Following this i'll be having a short break to put together the improved and expanded 2nd edition of my book 'Art Nudes'


Autumn Kitty 289 by Dave-EllisZombie Candy 11 by Dave-Ellis

Hazard Kitty 283 by Dave-EllisZombie Candy 5 by Dave-Ellis



So... it's about the right time of year to review the last 12 months and to try and
make some sense of 2013 and to look towards the coming year.

It certainly has been a rollercoaster ride for me personally and photography wise.
The first six months flew by in a busy whirl with nearly 30 shoots and a generally
positive vibe and a feeling of onwards and upwards.
The second half of the year things have unravelled somewhat - just 3 shoots (none for
close to 4 months now) - mingled with depression, self doubt, and a host of other more
everyday problems

The biggest bright spot for me of 2013 has been working with and building a creative
partnership with the totes awesome Hazard--Kitty , a great model and now a firm
friend she has helped me re-discover my enthusiasm and energy for photography. Tnx Hannah :)
We have been through some ups and downs this year and havent been able to shoot for a
while for a number of reasons (we both got new jobs and have both been ill amoung other things)
but life has started to normalise, we have been beavering away on a whole load of new
ideas and concepts and will be back in the saddle early next year with new shoots :thumbsup:

Another plus worth mentioning has been a real surge of print sales on DA (well over 100 this
year) though to be honest its been mainly down to Hazard--Kitty and her fans - big thanks
to all of you that have purchased :) - any money i do get for prints all goes back into buying
props, clothes and other shizz for shoots

So... despite the recent lows things are starting to look up again - will be ending the year
with a shoot with ZombieCandy, and starting the new year working with Aimie Twyford, closely
followed by back to back shoots with Hazard--Kitty (which im already super excited about :D )
and then with Hannah Clare at the end of January.
Also, along with Hazard Kitty and Ruby Jewel I have and magazine publication coming out at
the end of this month (more details to follow) - and planning is well underway for the expanded
and updated second edition of my book 'Art Nudes' (hopefully this coming March)

So on that positive note - thanks to everyone who takes the time to read this, and those that
have watched, fav'd and commented - hope everyone has a great Christmas and New Year :peace: :)

LIFE IS STRANGE…

 

Sometimes things accelerate unexpectedly and you find your life in a state of flux  - my photography has taken some twists and turns this month , been de-railed by lack of funds and some relationships have stalled. Time to step back and take some perspective, fix the relationships and things that are broken and move forward

Just noticed from my stats that I now have over 3000 watchers, which I thought was worth a mention  A big thank you to every one of you for the support
Been a while since I posted a journal here but there's been very little going on to report apart from lots of shoots the last few months. Transport (one dead car) has been a big problem for me, but hopefully that will be resolved in a week or two and life will get back to normal

So a Question for all – is it quiet around here at the moment or is it just me – everything (favs, comments , views etc) are well below normal for me – wondering if anybody else is getting this too?

U P C O M I N G  S H O O T S

Things were looking very busy for February and at the end of last month I had eleven shoots booked in the space of the next four weeks. Common sense prevailed and I realised that I really couldn't work at this rate and be creative. In the end, my big weekend shoot with Akasha Asylum had to be postponed for other reasons, but I also cancelled several shoots myself to put the breaks on

However, there is still plenty going on, Had an awesome shoot earlier this week with Hazard Kitty, and I'm working with Rhi and Siany over the coming weekend.
Ive then got a couple of weeks off , and at the end of the month will be working with two newcomers, BarbieGoneWrong and Gemma which Im really looking forward to.

Without going into the circumstances I think it would be fair to say that 2012 was the worst year of my life in many respects. I spent a lot of December reviewing things, and considering how a lot of my problems were of my own making, that I'd become a 'victim of my own bullshit' as the saying goes – and begun to let people mess me around, which I wouldn't have tolerated in the past.
So… lots of resolutions were made, a new stronger proactive me was ready to roll in 2013, and then four days into the new year I smashed my car up… great start!
Thankfully, nobody was hurt (in fact no one else was involved) but the hassle and problems it's caused me seem to have taken everything back to square one.
So time once again to toughen up, fuck off some of the negative shit in my life, and get 2013 back on track!

DAVE ELLIS ARTNUDES - Book Cover by Dave-Ellis

Have, at last, finished the layout, design and contents – the final stage now is signing off a full printed proof. I still hope to have everything finished and the book for sale by the end of this month.
Initial reaction from the people who have seen the final PDF version has been excellent and really positive.

Got plenty coming up over the next 4 or 5 weeks – will be shooting with Akasha Asylum, Rhi, Crimson L'Von, and Silvermoon. (and hopefully Hazard Kitty, TBC)
Also have plans underway with other models, to be announced, and a nice commercial shoot down South at the end of the month to help balance the books :D

2013 Shoots and Internet Update

DAVE ELLIS ARTNUDES - Book Cover by Dave-Ellis
(January 2013)

After the big internet activity clean up I promised a few weeks ago I thought this would be a good point to feedback on how it all panned out

500px – Joined, uploaded some images  and did get a bit of initial reaction, a couple getting onto the 'popular' page (or whatever they called it) But I quickly realised that building things up there appeared like it would be a really hard slog and that it was essentially DA, albeit smaller and without some of the issues. Couldn't justify paying for premium so let that one lapse.

I also set up a Facebook artist page which has totally belly flopped so far with 38 likes – I will leave it going and try to build it up, but my main problem is that although everyone tells me 'you must be on FB' I still haven't worked out why? I'm sure the penny will drop eventually…
(and I don't understand why one artist page cannot 'like' another artist?? Or am I being a tool and just haven't worked out how to?)

I have re-activated Redbubble but haven't done a lot there yet – I will build it up slowly, lured by all the people who've told me over the last few years that it's the place to sell prints …. We'll see

The biggest and most pleasant surprise has been Purple Port – never got much out of other model/photographer networking sites but this one seems absolutely buzzing with activity. Great layout and user friendly, But the 'proof of the pudding' is in the results which I'll discuss below…
I have invitations I can send out which get you a month's premium membership to look round and see how you like it – if this is of interest to anyone drop me a note…

2013 Shoots (What a difference a week makes…)

Muddled along through Oct/Nov okay, but by the start of the month everything I was attempting to plan around seemed to go down the drain and I got to that 'why do I put myself through this – give it up' headset that most of us get from time to time. Then about a week ago loads of things started to drop into place, all from purple port. Without giving too much detail now

I'm collaborating over one or two weekend shoots this year with an IMO 'top draw' UK 'Alternative' model – partly to shoot some art nude work, but mainly to shoot two very specific 'fantasy fashion' images, already well under plan – these will be proper team productions working with a MUA, clothes designer and set designer. This is by far the most 'upscale' project I've been involved in and provided I don't f@!k it up will be a major step forward

Ive have also booked a couple of shoots with a dancer, newly turned art nude model who I think has massive potential. From the little bit of work she has its clear that along with a great figure she has the grace and elegance that dancers turned models bring to the art nude genre. Im certain if she pushes on she will make a big impact on the genre and do very well, and I will be looking back in a year or two very happy to have gotten in on 'the ground floor'

In addition I also have another two shoots booked and two more agreed but to be dated. What's most surprising is that I'm only able to do TF work at present and I've managed to secure all of the above on that basis. Add some more work with some of the usual suspects and the first half of next year is shaping up to be very busy and I couldn't be happier
