Limited Edition 16”x24” prints (no more than 50 will be sold), each is printed as a 200+ year Archival Pigment Print on Museo Silver Rag paper, mounted on 4-ply museum board and treated with a UV Print Shield Spray. Each one will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity, and prices begin at $500. Prices may increase as availability declines. You can also order it pre-framed, in a gorgeous shadow-box frame that floats above the print and requires no glass front.

Seal Print Sales… They're Coming!

Today was a day of fantastic news. I finally got the OK to sell limited edition prints from the Seal tour this summer! I’m very excited about this and am working on the final details right now.

These will be limited editions, available in just one size and finish, and once they’re gone, they’re gone. I’ll show which photos will be sold when the store goes up, but these are definitely some of the favorites that people have commented on and asked about prints for.

Email prints@josephlinaschke.com to put your name on the list early to be sure you get the print you want!

Ultimate Ears Launches Ad Campaign Featuring Seal Photos

This was a nice surprise in my inbox this evening… Ultimate Ears http://ultimateears.com/ has kicked off an ad campaign featuring Seal (among other artists) and are using a couple of my photos from the European SOUL tour. (If you haven’t seen the tour galleries yet, check ‘em out here, here and here).

Here are the two original images, followed by the ad promos. Maybe you saw these in your email this week, too!

Talk About a Good Morning… Thank You Scott Bourne!

This morning when I woke up, the sun was shining again, the coffee was fresh, and an email from Scott Bourne @ScottBourne absolutely made my day! I’ve been selected as a finalist in his “Emerging Photographer of the Year Award” for my work with Seal, and I’m absolutely honored and thrilled.

You can read what Scott had to say here… and if you see a guy walking around LA today with an unbreakable ear-to-ear grin, that’d be me ;-)

Last of the Seal SOUL Europe galleries

The last ten Seal galleries went up on my blog recently. Here’s a highlight from each show… as before, click on any image to open the gallery for that city. Enjoy!

A little more SOUL…

We’re into the sixth week here, and have just three more shows before heading home, starting tonight in Valladolid, Spain; then Friday in Cascais, Portugal (just outside of Lisbon); finally wrapping it up in Albufeira, Portugal. It’s been a hell of a journey and we’re all looking forward to that flight home.

I’ve been uploading a few more large galleries on the near-reasonable internet connection here in Valladolid, so again here’s a sample shot from each show, and just click the image to open the full gallery. And as always, the up-to-date galleries are on seal.com

On the European SOUL tour with Seal

It’s the fourth week of six on the road with Seal, and I haven’t posted a single blog entry here. Terrible, I know. I’ve had enough of a challenge getting the photos up to seal.com, but found a groove a couple of weeks or so ago and am now getting the photos from any given show online within 24 hours. Which doesn’t sound like much until you realize that immediately after each show, we get on the bus and drive to the next city, usually sleeping on the bus (kind of a half sleep as the bus rocks along), get into a new city at maybe 5, 6, 11am, then often go back to bed for a few more hours. If there’s another show that night, I’ll scramble to get the photos out before soundcheck ‘cause usually once that starts, I can’t get back onto the computer to finish an edit.

Anyway I’ve started uploading the same photos to my own gallery. You can always see the freshest at seal.com/tour/tour-gallery but as I can I’ll upload them to my own gallery on josephlinaschke.com (where you can see them larger than on seal.com).

I’ve uploaded the first five shows; Birmingham, Edinburgh, London, Oxford, and Manchester. We completed show 16 in Lucerne, Switzerland last night, and have just arrived in Carcassonne, France where we have two days off before the show here Tuesday night. 

Here’s a favorite from each of those five shows; click each one to open the complete gallery.
