My First Limited Editions & Premium Prints Store Now Open!

Over the last several years, most of my work has been available via print-on-demand, and on various products. Many of them still are, but I'm reserving some images as Limited Editions and Premium Open Edition. All signed. All inspected by me personally before they go out. 

They're only available in the size I've determined for each image, and only on the media I feel best represents my work. For these first offerings, I've chosen a heavy, 330gsm archival water color paper made from 100% cotton. I may offer some others printed on metal, other fine art papers, and possibly acrylic.  

I've started these out with a discount on the Premium Open Edition prints, but I've also generated a 20% discount code good for any order over $200.
The code is good until 06/23/15  07:01pm

Enter this code on checkout 8Z4XWU6 for a 20% discount

I'm keeping the collection small, easy to browse, the ability to see the images large without any water-marking, and committed to only the best quality. 

Visit the General Store HERE

I've also got an audio book true story that I recorded and edited while in the desert of San Luis, Mexico. Read the product description for more details, but I promise you, it's an intense story. :)

More Limited Editions, Premium Open Editions, and Digital Products coming soon!

3 Awesome/Fresh 2013 Calendar Offerings from the Kaleidoscope

Rockin' Fresh Calendar Booty Yo-Ho-Ho!

Luckily, I happened to be browsing MagCloud's blog to see if they had any new products for this season, and noticed they're now offering printed calendars! I don't use printed calendar's myself, but I get asked about them every year. 

What I love about these is that they're not your usual stapled variety (though they offer those too) but the larger 12x12 with Wire-O binding. And my experience with MagCloud has consistently rendered beautiful printing results in my photo books. 

So, I'm proud to offer these first 3 calendar collections in time for the end of year and holiday season! Please have a look and pick up some sweet holiday/end-o-year Skip Hunt goodies!

Happy Holidays All!

Announcing the MOST comprehensive Skip Hunt collection to date!

This was really something I put together for myself out of images I've published at MagCloud as photo books. I wanted a collection that I could easily take around with me with 10 images from each of the photo books I've published to show galleries potential collections. 120 images in all!

Now that it's complete, I decided to make it publicly available for a holiday special price which will go up considerably after the holidays. 

If you're a fan of my work, this is the most comprehensive collection I've ever offered. My guess is that it would make someone a delightful holiday gift. ;)

You can preview the entire publication at the link below, and prints are available via HERE and HERE

Happy Holidays Everyone and be safe!

Skip Hunt | Go West Moto-Photo Adventure on Amazon

The Exotic within the Mundane

Fine art photographer Skip Hunt of Austin, Texas traveled Westward via motorcycle in search of the exotic within the mundane. He found so much more! This issue contains the entire set of chronicles from Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, California and Arizona. What began as a curious wandering with no particular path or direction, became a powerful life-changing adventure. Sometimes we must become lost before we can truly find our way.

Now Available for Kindle!

Back in one piece from Chupacabra Tour 2012

And, what a long strange trip it was!

It was a rough trip, but overall... extremely productive. The whole focus on the Chupacabra story as really a last minute idea to work on, but became the main driving force of the entire trip. Got some sweet images and have almost completed the screenplay version!

The trip was mostly chronicled on Storify HERE for more details.

Also got some video clips that I will use in the iBook version and possibly a pre-production movie trailer to hopefully raise funds. Check it out!

A few snaps from the Chupacabra Tour

I've got the true account recording I made in audiobook format for sale and download here:

Chupacabra Audiobook
$2.99

And, I've also got the first 3 chapters available via iTunes podcast for free HERE

Back to finishing the screenplay... more coming!

Hmmm... Let's call it the "Chupacabra Tour"!

In just 4 days I'm flying to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico as an entry point... will hang out for a few days before climbing aboard a bus for who knows where?!

I really didn't have a reason or plan at all for this trip (and don't generally) but I'd just returned from traveling in Colombia where I made some fairly satisfying black and white images and captured some the most delicious Colombian color and landscapes I've seen in my travels to date. So why be in such a hurry to ramble yet again so soon? Quien sabe.

After finally recording some audio tracks into chapters so that I could at least get through the story with minimal editing and offer it as an audio book, the idea of maybe trying to push this true story forward to shoot as a movie started to materialize. I figure that I'm going to be in the same general locations that the story took place, and since I've never seriously considered making a movie out of it... well, it seemed high time that I revisit the story over a decade later to see if maybe it has legs. 

A True Story | Audio Book + 01:45:32

A True Story | Audio Book + 01:45:32

Am I just procrastinating? Perhaps. I've been to these places many times before and have already made many Mexico images on previous trips. I'm hoping to accomplish a tighter focus and being able to "see" this as a movie in my mind's eye... with making new images specifically related to my CHUPACABRA | A True Story I'm hoping to get a similar level of obsession that almost cost me my life over 13 years ago. The audio book project was initially intended to save the story for myself. Then, it's purpose became to see if other's were intrigued enough to buy the audio book. Now, it's evolved into a purpose for this trip. Where it will go from there I can't say, but with some encouragement from friends, and that strange tingle you can get sometimes that implies "now is the time"... I'll soon see if CHUPACABRA | A True Story will live beyond a recorded story. 

I'm going to listen to the story while traveling and grab extra images that could serve as companion pieces specifically for this story, and possibly useful cinematic location shots. If this story intrigues you at least the $3 worth :) And you want to listen to what will be guiding me on my next journey, I've made it available for purchase & download HERE 

(This is the first short 8 minute "set-up" chapter for you to sample first)

There's won't be a project site with this so that I can focus solely on getting intimate with my own story once again. I'll be posting stuff along the way when possible as thoughts, images and sounds relate to this story. Should be an interesting trip if the Great Spirit see my intentions as earnest and worthy. Wish me suerte (luck)!

The LithoFusion Collection based on a set of rules and parameters I'd set for myself as an experiment to see if it helps maintain a subtle cohesive quality throughout the collection. 

Each composition was based on images from one of 4 trips, and each composition's images are unique to a specific location with no cropping or cutting and pasting done at all. All source images are kept framed as they were shot.

LithoFusion Featured on Appafolio!

Delighted to learn that Appafolio is currently featuring my LithoFusion Collection app on their site!

For those of you wanting to present your work and or product in an iPhone & iPad app without having to code anything and viewable off-line, check out Appafolio. I created a portfolio of my LithoFusion Collection on Appafolio almost a year ago and can't believe how far it's now advanced. You can even create "Buy" links by simply adding the url where the product is located within an image gallery. You can also add slideshows and videos, but I haven't tried out the video feature yet since I wanted to keep the download manageable. 

It's also very impressive that they've done this in a way that's completely intuitive and customizable. I just completely re-edited my LithoFusion app and had it updated for download in less than an hour! No coding and mostly drag & drop layout. 

Looks like you can even submit an app for sale in the iTunes app store if you have a developer account. And, it apparently works with Kindle Fire as well, but I don't have one of those to test.  They are also launching Android fully today and I've heard a rumor that they have a 'beta' web player coming out as well, probably tomorrow, maybe next week. Pretty freakin' cool huh?!

After you download the FREE Appafolio app, check out my LithoFusion Appafolio at http://appafol.io/lithofusion or enter passphrase 'lithofusion' into the Appafolio iPhone/iPad app. Download it at http://bit.ly/appafolio

The Fine Colombian Photo Book is now LIVE!

This is beautifully printed by MagCloud on great paper stock and perfect bound.

Also check out the colorful vibrant Colombia 2012 from this same trip HERE

The challenges of traveling throughout Colombia for 6 weeks are still very fresh in my memory. The country is has just recently bounced back from years of drug wars and political upheaval & the work of rebuilding continues as some lingering wrinkles are ironed out.

There's no denying that this is one stunningly beautiful country, populated with some of the finest human beings I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. It's a bit early to tell, but this may be my finest collection of photos to date.

After 6 weeks of wandering around Colombia and a few more weeks of pain-staking editing & culling, I'm happy to announce that the photo book of fine black and white images is now LIVE! 

You can preview & order the photo book HERE

Still early to tell since it's still so fresh, but I feel my most recent black and white collection of photos made  while traveling in Colombia for 6 weeks, may be one of my best collections yet!

Proud of the color work that went into the recently published Colombia 2012 photo book but it's hard to deny the power of black and white.  The Fine Colombian photo book will be ready soon, but in the meantime, have a look at the print gallery HERE
