Luminous Landscape Endowment Fund Offers Great Opportunity-Application Period Ends 2/11/2008

I’ve been visiting for news, reviews, training and information for about the last 10 years. It’s a fantastic resource, and I think that the site’s publisher, Michael Reichmann, and those who have contributed to the site have helped many photographers in many ways. And their images have undoubtedly inspired many to pick up a camera and capture the world around them.


The Luminous Landscape Inc., in August 2007, created an Endowment Fund to allow photographers to pursue special projects or educational opportunities. A total of $20,000 has been raised, and awards from $1,000-$5,000 will be given to photographers based on an application process which can be found on the Endowment Fund’s information page.

The judging panel for the Endowment Fund is a very distinguished group of photographers and educators: Stephen Johnson, Charles Cramer, Seth Resnick, Ian Lyons, Alain Briot, Nick Rains, John Paul Caponigro, Michael Johnston and Michael Reichmann.

I think that this is a great opportunity for anyone who has a project in their heart, but has not been able to make it a reality. My guess is that even some of those whose funding requests are not met will benefit from the process, leading to the creation of work that may not have been undertaken otherwise.
