Cloudy days here lately: Chilly Monterey Bay-Big Sur by shell4art
New Coffee Table Book by shell4art

We are now offering you a lovely Coffee Table Book, filled cover to cover with ocean shots, all of which were taken by shell of shell's Photography. You can choose your size and style and purchase this book by following the link.

You can also see this book in it's entirety.

The book was created for a lovely lady named Linda.
She is an amazing woman of love and light and shell has known her over 40yrs.

There is also a copy of this book available at auction on BidZzar on Facebook at a reduced starting price.

100% of the proceeds from the sale of this book go towards Linda's medical costs as she wins her fight against cancer.
Thank you for enjoying shell's Photography and thank you so much for helping us often with helping others. BidZzar Auctiin--> [link]

BidzZar Logo by shell4art

Let me introduce you to a fun way to sell your artwork, or anything else you might want to sell. It is a Facebook application, so you would need a Facebook account.

It is a free program which gives you a storefront and way to sell your items at auction.

I would recommend that you start the bidding at just below what you normally ask for because it is still a new application with a limited amount of participants so far. It is brand new and has grown very rapidly, but it still has some much needed growth going on.

Simon Bull by shell4art

I saw it because a worldwide famous and spectacular artist Simon Bull. was selling his work there. Again, it is at auction. His top of the line high end items were available to me as a way to make commissions on sales! We just share on Facebook the items we want to help sell, as others can with ours. Our audience grows dramatically.

I have static web sites and I have sold quite a bit at my Zenfolio site I get quite a good take on it too. I have really enjoyed it. BUT I have been using my Facebook account to promote it. I have a shell's photography page on Facebook also which generates more viewers/sales. With BidzZar I am using my Facebook at an even better advantage.

The Path by shell4art Yes, last week I sold a photo here on deviantART and got a whopping 2cents! Don't get me wrong, I am not a dA Basher. I love dA. I have not always agreed with everything, or how things run, but that happens in any long term relationship. There is so much that I love about dA and not just the wonderful people, but there is much to be said about the interface also. We will save that for another day because I want to talk about BidzZar

I sold this piece for $250.00

This is currently selling for $75.00

I sold my greeting cards for $20.00
Cards by shell4art

Now, the largest image  (24x36) was donated to a charity as a way of helping a friend of mine and I have many coupons at Zenfolio to help causes, but check this out--BidzZar just started making helping causes one of their features! You can't do much better than that for my purposes.

BidzZar is still adding new features and ideas monthly and I am honored to be part of their cornerstone subscribers.

This is a great idea and it is working!
Framed by shell4art

Ways to further get your Art out there.

A fan took a picture of herself with one of her purchases. I was so pleased.
Fan Purchase by shell4art

He bought these as Mother's Day gifts.
Mothers Day Gift by shell4art

I contacted my local framers in the Monterey Bay Area and Santa Cruz. We came up with a great deal. I send my clients to them, and they give them a deal! It can also save on shipping if the purchaser wants to pick them up at the local framer. In doing this the framers even gave me a better deal on my framing!
Framing Coupon by shell4art

The greeting cards are all suitable for framing. It's great to give the client ideas on how to use your art.
5x7 Churches by shell4art

Local shops love to have Gallery Showing, just make a phone call and show them your work. It is quite simple and people really do enjoy it. I have sold quite a bit this way.

My Facebook Ad:Promo Ad by shell4art

This looks pretty funky because I have no idea how to customize the new layouts. They took all my tools away :)

Blessings to all.

Become a fan of shell's photography on Facebook!…
