Disclosure Statement

There will be times when I add links, talk about products, and maybe even tell you how much I love something. Overall, the purpose of this blog is to openly teach and share. I’m a photographer and author, not a journalist. My intention is to be as truthful as possible in my postings, however my personal opinion and biases will find their way into my posts as well.

  • If you see me talking about “how much I love <fill in the blank product>”, then I truly do. I will never take money or free stuff to falsely claim I enjoy using something or lie about how I feel about a product. I will never hide the facts or imply that I purchased an item myself when I receive a product or service for free. This statement includes (but is not limited to) blog articles, social media posts, and contests and giveaways.
  • If I’m linking to one of my print books or digital product in my online store, then yes, I make money on the sales of those products.
  • If I’m linking to Amazon.com then there is a 100% chance that I included my affiliate code in the link. So yes … I get a little tiny cut if you buy it, or anything else after clicking on the link. (Note: The price of the item you purchase does not change when using an affiliate link.)
  • I do my very best to be compliant with the FTC regulations regarding endorsements and product placements. You can read more about that on the FTC website.

I want to be as open and transparent in the dealings with my blog as possible. If you have any questions, feel free to send me a message using the contact form on this site.
