Good news - images to be displayed in a museum (Prairie Grove Project)
Lens: FA* 300/2.8 Camera: K20D, *ist DS Photo Location: Prairie Grove Battlefield, AR, United States ISO: 800 
Posted By: Marc Langille, 12-20-2010, 06:07 PM

Hi Everyone,

In 2009, I sent Taylor Studios a placeholder CD of images with over 200 images at 1024 pixels on the long side. This is for simplifying their workflow - those images act as placeholders during the design phase.

Received notification today that 3 of my Civil War images were selected by Taylor Studios for use in the Prairie Grove Battlefield museum exhibit renovations/design. This means that they should be on permanent display at the Prairie Grove museum. It turns out that two images are personal favorites. I had some others that I hoped would be selected, but alas no...

Taylor Studios is based in Rantoul, IL (south of Chicago). They have done work for a number of museums, nature centers, science centers, visitor centers, zoos and universities around the country: Taylor Studios - Interpretive Plans, Exhibit Design & Fabrication - Nature Centers, Science Centers, Museums, Visitor Centers, Zoos, Universities.

Taylor Studios portfolio: Environments, Animal Models, Plant Models, Dioramas, Lifecast Figures


For now, here are two of the images in question....

First with the K20D + FA* 300/2.8 + Pentax-F 1.7x AF TC:



EXIF



Now with the DS + FA* 300/2.8:


EXIF


I am not sure how big the printed images will be, but I know they'll hold up very well. Just need to confirm the terms for their use, etc. - specific to use at that museum of course. They're not allowed to use it anywhere else without permission and of course I retain copyright, unless negotiations take a strange twist!


Regards,
Marc

Very nice work Marc.
These are timeless images and would look great in the gallery.
Printed large, they'd have so much life and points of interest to them.
Well done.

Thank you Ash and I am hoping they'll occupy some decent space in the new exhibit.

Best to you and your family for the holidays.

Hi Jer,

Hope the holidays are good for you! I just sealed negotiations - a 50% price increase over what we discussed in early 2009. It's still quite a bit lower than what I would charge almost 2 years later. I think they know this was still a very good price, so there was little/no hesitation to agree to the price increase.

However, it's the photographer credits and it's subsequent exposure that matters most to me. Taylor Studios can only use them for the exhibit and it will be in the Visitors Center, which is the most heavily viewed area. I believe the numbers are approx. 60,000 per annum? I may have to double check.

Again, thank you for the very kind words and safe travels, if any.

Regards,
Marc
