Just a head’s up. Uncle Danno is about to launch his newsletter. Hundreds of people have signed up for The Shifter Wire, believe it or not, but I’ve never actually sent one. At least I don’t think I have. I’ve been preaching the power of the newsletter for the past several years and I feel it’s time to finally put my money where my mouth is. I’m so in need of a change with this site, with my personal work, my photography and my place in this world. I think maybe these changes begin with a newsletter.
The reason I’m writing this email is to warn those of you who signed up to receive my newsletter. I KNOW I’m going to get hate mail from people who signed up, forgot they signed
Now, here is where things get complicated. What the HELL do I put in the newsletter? I don’t want the newsletter to be a replication of this site. I don’t really have anything to sell, at least not at the moment. I do have some ideas, even a few good ones, but I’d love to hear from you if you have the time and desire. It has been long while since I’ve written about photography. I mean really written about photography. About particular moments, ideas, styles, strategies, etc. This might make it in. I also think shining a light on other creatives might be a good idea. I’d like to keep it simple.
One of the ideas I’ve always fought against is the idea that my life might be interesting to someone else. I look at myself, my real self, as a quiet, introvert who likes being alone. Someone who likes to read, write, think, make pictures and tell stories, but the idea that I would be the story is still a foreign concept. But, maybe this isn’t the case. Still dealing with how to deal with this.
Also, I signup for newsletters. I receive at least six that I find entirely intriguing. Some are attempting to sell me a thing or two, but I’m okay with that. Others aren’t selling anything but instead share all kinds of interesting facts. Each of these newsletters
