Since April of 2017, I have been working with the wonderful people of the Morrison Hotel Gallery. They regularly sell prints of my work, sometimes pretty large ones. I also often send them prints of work of mine I have recently rediscovered.
Pictures of Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks sell best, but that’s probably because they also work directly with Mick Fleetwood.They are based in New York, Maui, and Los Angeles. The branch in New York is in SoHo, where they started 17 years ago. In 2016, Mick Fleetwood requested them to start up a new branch in his Fleetwood’s General Store in Maui, and in Los Angeles – my hometown! – they are set up in the Sunset Marquis Hotel.
Mick owns one of my prints of himself and he gifted Stevie one of my prints of herself when she visited the Maui gallery one day and liked one very much. So, I may not know where all my sold prints are hanging, but I do know that one is hanging in the home of Stevie Nicks.
Working with more galleries
I sometimes look for new galleries to represent me and sell prints of my work. The galleries are often in direct contact with interested clients and/or have an excellent online presence. Interest in prints of music photography seems to be picking up, and I am very happy to have my work hanging on many walls all over the globe.
Back in April of 2017, I was sending out some emails to galleries that I thought sounded fantastic and that I would love to work with. The owners of The Morrison Hotel Gallery answered within an hour of me sending the email, and we spoke that very evening. What a lovely conversation we had! We started working together right away, and they have sold many of my prints already.
Whenever they receive a new order, I make sure I have a high-quality scan of the negative, and then I send it to my printer, Marcel of MASA print. He prints the b/w pictures on Hahnemuhle White Velvet paper, 270 grams, 25% cotton, 75% cellulose or on Hahnemuhle Cotton matt textured, 300 grams, 100% cotton. The full-color prints are done on Ilford Smooth pearl. He has two huge Epson printers working almost constantly.
I’m thrilled with the quality of his work.
Then, after I have signed and numbered the limited edition prints, they are wrapped up and go on their journey to the gallery. There, the print is framed and shipped to another empty wall that will now don a print of a rock star from about 45 years ago.
It still gives me a big kick!
So, if you are ever in LA, New York or Maui, be sure to drop by and say “Hello”.
