You guys. I have been waiting to announce this for about 3 weeks (with two more announcements on the way! so much announcing!). Which basically means that all my nagging has come to a pointy head and Kamel can go back to playing video games and using his powers for selective hearing only.
So first, you gotta check out Kamel’s website, Kamel Perez Photography. Kamel, in a former life, used to be a real life film printing photographer, with dark rooms and chemicals, and starving himself for camera equipment (and now he is a nerd prince who makes video games, just in case you need to be caught up). He had a scholarshop to sfai (where they eventually screwed him out of thousands of dollars, long story) and had gallery shows, and everything. Dude, he was even a wedding photography (more on that later though).
For now, I’m here to announce that we’ve opened a little store on his website. The contents are not huge, but! he’ll be adding more as he re-gathers his work from years past, and we go on more photo adventures. Also – I’m sure (because I know him and I say so) that if you loved a photo that isn’t in the store, he could print it for you. Right now there are 12 prints we’re excited to see on other people’s walls, a sample of which is below.
The prices are also very reasonable for scoring some amazingly unique art for your house. An 8×12 goes for an even $20 smacks, print sizes go all the way up to 20×30 (with smaller versions in-between) for $50, and he’s also offering a 16×24 canvas print (ooo canvas!) for $200.
We’re becoming quite the creatively financed house over here, and I hope you love Kamel’s work as much as I do. We have a photo collage (both big and small) half way finished in our dining room right now – we’re just waiting for the perfect frames to come along. Sigh.
