Hello my dear friends! 😀
Yesterday, when i posted my Thessaloniki Sunsets timelapse, i noticed that it was my 100th post! So yay! 😀 In about a month it will be my 1 year anniversary on WordPress as well. Looking forward to that!
But the really big news is that i’m officially moving to Austria! Some of you, who have been following me for a while probably know my struggle with unemployment and the whole story of me going back to my parents house. I wanted to move to Austria for a long time now but i couldn’t find the money. After doing loads of badly paid freelance work i managed to gather enough money to purchase my ticket! 20 September i’ll be flying to Vienna! 😀
I’m super excited about that but also super nervous. I will be doing an IndieGogo crowdfunding campaign to hopefully fund at least some of my moving expenses. I got the ticket and just a little extra cash so i won’t die from starvation but i need more money so i can hire a moving company to transfer my desktop computer and work equipment safely, have some money for the first rent and be able to print some new business cards and flyers so i can promote my freelance work there as well. I will be looking for a full time job but i still want to be able to do my own stuff there 🙂
The campaign will be an Art Sale. I want you to be a vital part of this and get something nice in return. Some of the perks include, various sized prints of my photos, limited edition prints, all signed with a lot of love of course, an e-book version of my book Visions (not available for sale anywhere else) and by contributing even 1$ you’ll get your name immortalized into a V-Light artwork that will be done specifically for this campaign and will be available for you to view and download afterwards. If i can get enough contributions=names, i’ll make a huge print of the artwork and hang it my house or office so i can see it every day and be thankful for your support as long as i live 😀 Maybe archaeologists will find it in the far future and it will be the biggest mystery in history 😛 They would first need to decode English to read the names and it might be even displayed in a fancy museum!
The campaign will be launched next week. So i would really appreciate your support by sharing it with your friends and people who like to supports artists, even if you cannot contribute a single dollar, sharing can really help 🙂
If any of you have any experience with crowdfunding and have some tips to share, please do! Also, what other perks would you be interested in? I could use some good ideas here but it has to be something that can be shipped easily because we do have very expensive shipping in Greece…
Thank you for your time!
A super excited Alex “V-Light”
