I’m Mark Garbowski, and this is my photography blog. I became serious about photography in late summer 2009, and started this blog in October that same year. For an overview of the first year of my blog, check out my first blogiversary post here. Although I never committed to a post every day, or a 365 project of some sort, I put up at least one image daily since between April 2010 and April 2011. I celebrated that anniversary here.
Since then, the regularity with which I post has varied considerably.
Series, Subjects, Themes and Styles
I have done a number of themed series since starting. First there were the 100 Bus Stops and 100 Crosswalk series, both of which ran from the early days of the blog through April 2011. Early in 2012 I did two short run series showcasing (1) Coney Island and (2) Grand Central terminal, both shot during early winter morning hours when they were largely unpopulated. I am very fond of my Grey Man series.
I look forward to comments, and emails or contact form submissions of all kinds: praise, criticism, suggestions, and questions. I try to answer any questions as best I can, but sometimes it takes me a week or two.
My images are available for purchase, and there are multiple ways to do this. I suggest you contact me (opens in new tab) with any inquiries so I can help you to pick the best method for your needs.
Licensing and Other Uses
I own the copyright in all of my images. Technically, if if you want to use one of my images for a even a personal, non commercial use, I could charge a licensing fee, but asa practical matter, I’m not going to bother you.
My images are available to be licensed. Should you wish to receive a quote, please include all of the necessary information, including at least the proposed use, the nature of your organization or enterprise, the place of publication, circulation and/or web traffic figures, and length of time.
Other People’s Photos
I occasionally post images by other photographers. When I do so I either have express permission or those images are under a Creative Commons license. You cannot use any of those images without first checking with those photographers or reading the terms of their Creative Commons license if applicable.
