** Just to clear up any confusion: This is the 200th title of books and zines that we have published since we started counting as Hamburger Eyes “The Publisher”. As for Hamburger Eyes “The Photozine”, this issue would be number 37. (Some people have posted it as our 200th issue on social media, but it’s misleading and confusing I know. Sorry. Click here to see the whole CATALOG.)
It is the time of reflection, gang. Hamburger Eyes has been on a longggg journey and it hasn’t gotten much easier with time. This past year has been a super hectic one and I want to say that I am super grateful to all of you who are part of this. The photographers and the people supporting them.
We want to keep this train moving and get to the next level. For me that means more photos and more books.
We have attempted it over here, but never pulled it off and this year we are going to make a serious go of it. That is to put out at least 1 issue of Hamburger Eyes per month. There are many factors involved, but those factors are really just excuses.
So, this is turning out to be a public proclamation. 1 issue per month or minimum 12 issues served for 2019. In my head this should be easy, but in reality it will be some long nights. We can handle it.
Let’s get busy. Have a Happy Holidays and Happy New Years. May all of your wildest dreams come true.
We have a new book coming out soon titled, “SF Eyes”. It is going to be published by Hat and Beard Press. They are having a sale 25% discount off everything which includes the pre-order to our book! Reserve your copy today.
PODCAST REBOOTED. I finally figured out what I want to do with YouTube, something that’s easy and informative. Here’s a hang out with photographer Tobin Yelland. We talk about being a photographer on movie sets and other things.
Also I have exported the audio versions to serve as a “podcast”.
What does productivity mean to you? I feel crazy busy these days but not productive at all. And when I am not productive is when I start feeling annoyed with myself.
For me, making stuff is productive. Shooting photos is the input and showing them is the output. This feels like the machine of productivity that I am used to and want to be part of.
Getting rid of massive amounts of stuff feels productive. Clearing space for new ideas feels productive.
Running around town doing errands does not feel productive, but laundry does. Social media does not feel productive, but blogging does.
I don’t even know where I am going with this. I think prioritizing what is most important is what productivity is. In our case, photography.
Warren Buffet said something along the lines of, “Write down 20 of the most important goals and things you need to do and accomplish. Spend a lot of time on it. Then take the top 3, and throw the rest away.”
