Spain by All of Us

I’m excited to announce that after eight years of working towards a photo book of Spain, the day has finally arrived! Kickstarter, the popular crowdfunding website, launched in Spain today, and I wanted to be up there on the very first day. And I made it, so I’m very happy. But of course, it still has to be funded!

If you have a few moments, please take a look at the Kickstarter website to read about the project.

But first I want to say thank you for reading this blog and leaving comments. Getting your feedback and knowing that you enjoy seeing my images has been a huge source of inspiration for me. Also, seeing which images get more feedback than others has been very interesting. And it also gave me an idea. I’m not sure this has been done before, but I am going to let all my Kickstarter supporters choose which images go in the book. So instead of Spain by Mike Randolph, it’s more like a book by all of us, because everyone together will edit the book. I think it’s a pretty cool idea, I hope you do, too. It’s a small way I can thank you, and I hope you’ll participate. Check out the project for more details.

I also included many of your comments on this blog in the Kickstarter campaign. Sorry I couldn’t include you all! But a heartfelt thank you to everybody who has followed me over the last three years.

Wish me luck! And muchísimas gracias!

Mike

      Thanks MJ! Things are looking pretty good for the first day. I’m 19 percent funded already, so I’ve got my fingers crossed.

    That’s exciting news about the book.

    I already know a few photos that I’m hoping will end up in the final collection.

      Thank you JL. It will be an interesting experience for you in particular…a professional editor in with a whole bunch of other editors.

    Great idea for kick starter Mike. Looking forward to the finished project. So many awesome photos. Will be hard to whittle them down to just 80.

      Tell me about it. Eight years of shooting–it was hard to select the 250 or so that the 80 will be chosen from! Thanks Jonny.
