So Many Pixels…But A Name is Missing

I am planning, plotting and possibly scheming. I have two and a half months to implement my plan. I must not fail. Blog land depends on me. I need your help.

It Is the Future You See

Yoda-web-blog The launch of my new Escape in Landscapes website: www.FlemmingBoJensen.com went extremely well. I am very happy with the feedback and extremely happy with the result. One giant project off the ground, so here’s a glimpse into what is coming up on the blog and my website. In the words of Yoda, "It is the future you see".

  • This blog will be moved in the coming weeks, and integrated into the design of my new website. Hopefully Murphy and his law will look kindly on this.
  • I will be writing a series of Gallery Presentations and tell the stories behind my main galleries.
  • A few videos and the stories behind them may make their way to the blog as well. Actually, very soon.
  • Several new images still to come as I dig a bit deeper in the thousands of images from Nomad Photographer Part I.
  • And of course, don’t worry, the stories behind some of the new images are coming! I am thrilled my stories are liked as I have discovered they are incredibly good stress-relief and fun to write. So I have engaged story telling hyperdrive again, pedal to the metal, well no, but music to the max and pen on paper (yes, most stories are written on paper, works a lot better).

Designing my website, the creative process

website-200A few more words about the design process, a great co-operation between me and Jesse Speer. I chose to involve no one else, I went by my own instincts completely throughout the whole design and programming phase. I poured my heart and soul into this process and wanted no one to interrupt the flow and creative process. Actually no one has seen the website before the launch two days ago and it was a bit nerve wracking launching it. Fortunately, this is one ship that appears to fly not crash!

Liftoff! My new website is in orbit

website-200At times it seemed like a mountain too steep to climb, a rock too heavy to push. Five hundred hours of design, programming, developing, adding images, redeveloping old images, writing content, typing meta data, etc., have paid dividends and I am now very happy, relieved and proud to present and launch my entirely new website. FlemmingBoJensen.com Mk III is now live!
NB! If you get the old site, reboot your computer, try again.

I cannot convey how sweet it is to finally launch this ‘ship’ and I am very pleased with the result. Before you head over there, take a few minutes to read about the site.  I have so much to tell, I must try to be brief though.

Features

  • Innovative design by Jesse Speer of WideRange Galleries, read more below.
  • Programming and brilliant CMS by Jack Brauer of WideRange Galleries.
  • More than 300 of my very best fine art images have been carefully selected for the galleries.
  • Large preview images. I want my wide open spaces to really bring you to my world, so most images are 1000 pixels wide.
  • The much-fabled Southwest USA gallery is launched.
  • More than 75 new fine art images from USA, Laos, Thailand and Australia from my November 2009 to June 2010 life on the road have been developed and are launching today with the new site.
  • Nearly half of the existing images have been reworked and reprocessed in Photoshop to meet my current standards and processing techniques.
  • New profile, artist statement and bio on the About page.
  • Search index, browse images by search tags, location, themes, colours and still to come, moods.
  • Integrated shopping cart.
  • Still much to come in the following months: New images. Integrated WP blog (this blog will move), large stock image archive, wallpapers, calendars and if I can get 30 hours in the day, books!

Design

Jesse Speer of WideRange Galleries created the design. Jesse blew my mind with his draft one, he truly captured my vision. Here are some of the words I gave Jesse: Wide Open Space, minimalistic, uncluttered, otherworldly magic look, hyperreality, earth tones, red soil, blue sky, orange sunlight, desert, ocean, waves, dunes, grandscapes, view to infinity, elements that float free, weightless, no limits, no boxes, no lines.

Website-background blog His design and the background are created from my images and I love it much and feel it is a work of art in itself so I want to present it here for you to enjoy. This is the otherworldly view to infinity, to a horizon that is not there, to a world you float freely above that draws you in but has no borders, no confinements.

New company name, we "Escape in Landscapes"

FBJ logo

No, I did not change my name to Luke Skywalker. Rather, I have changed my company name to "Flemming Bo Jensen – Escape in Landscapes". The Escape in Landscapes slogan elegantly describes what I am all about and offer. My vision and my otherworldly boundless wide open spaces ensures there is nothing familiar to collapse the dream, allowing you to Escape in Landscapes. Thanks to a dear friend for the words.

Southwest USA gallery launched

USA thumb Yes, the wait is over. The much fabled, much hyped release is reality. Fifty new fine art images from the ethereally beautiful Southwest USA, and still a few to come. Possibly the best work I have ever done. Enjoy this 12,000 km ride through the magnificent southwest.

WideRange Galleries

My new website is a WideRange Galleries website using their custom built CMS for photographers. It has been a great, fruitful and creative project working with Jack and Jesse, and I highly recommend WideRange Galleries if you’re looking for a new website. My sincerest thanks to Jack and Jesse for building and designing such a superb website for me.

Enjoy!

I have gone on for far too long, switch your browser to full screen browsing, head over to FlemmingBoJensen.com and enjoy and escape. I hope you spend some time browsing, then come back here and let me know your thoughts. If you spot any problems, spelling errors, etc. I would also be much obliged if you would inform me. Enjoy!

All systems go. Liftoff. Approaching orbit. Escape in Landscapes.

Reflections of a Nomad Photographer Part I

nomad-edge-flemming-blog In November 2009 having sold my flat and most of my belongings I left Copenhagen and embarked on my present great journey as a Nomad Photographer. No home, no base, no strings, complete freedom. After six months, three continents, five countries, thousands of images and having been around the world I returned to Copenhagen for a Summer break. “I need sleep” was one of my first sentences.

I felt jetlagged for 4 weeks as I attempted to re-charge and archive thousands of experiences, images, people and emotions inside my messy head. I am now able to reflect on the first chapter of my life as a nomad photographer. If you are not familiar with the beginning of this tale I suggest reading my Dreams become reality post and perhaps my profile. To make sense, my reflections are intimate but of course I have chosen to leave many things out for my public blog.

So…what was it like?

In pursuit of dreams

Without dreams we have nothing. Do you dream of becoming something, do something or going somewhere? Reach out and grab it. Only you can change your world.

There is a classic scene in HEAT where Al Pacino and Robert De Niro’s characters have coffee and discuss why they do what they do, one being a cop, one a robber. "Don’t know how to do anything else. Don’t much want do either!" they both answer. Recently it has become very clear how much I am now a photographer. Contrary to Pacino and De Niro’s characters, there are a few other things I know how to do well but I don’t much want to! Well, I would also love be an astronaut or a scientist but one dream at a time. 

fbj - ansel adams button - blogI love photography. Three years ago I quit my fulltime job in IT in pursuit of new horizons and photographing the world. I have since done some freelance IT-consulting to help pay the bills but my passion is truly photography. Travelling the world, capturing and creating images of untouched ethereally beautiful wide open spaces. I love being out in remote locations hunging for the perfect light and composition. I love capturing those fleeting moments of Mother Nature’s magic. I love studying the art of others, especially non-landscape photographer’s like the personal work of Joey L. Photojournalists and ethno-photographers and especially cinematographers are a great source of inspiration for me. So is other art, I love music, writing, reading, movies. I love the digital darkroom and all the creative tools available. I cherish receiving a gorgeous print from the lab and sending it off to a customer. I love when my stock images are sold for websites and magazines. I just simply love photography.

I want galleries around the world selling my art and I want books published. I want to build a large high quality stock library. I want to be Art Wolfe and travel to the edge with a camera crew documenting the journey. I want to create images that moves the viewer, shows how gorgeous and powerful Mother Nature is with an otherworldly twist.

Will it happen? Yes it will, some day. I have much to learn, but I am dreaming it, living it and I will make it happen!

I felt like sharing my passion today. Thanks so much for reading. If you wish, you can find more detailed info about me, my journey and my photography on the About page.
