While I can’t speak for the quality of their prints, this deal for prints and accessories is as low as you’re going to find. While I also wouldn’t suggest this for a client it’d be a great option for all of those personal shots you got of family and friends over the year. 75% off Amazon’s already affordable printing service is an unbelievable deal. The code to use is: NEWYEAR
Prime customers get free shipping too (it doesn’t specify how much shipping is for standard customers).
All of the photo books and calendars are customizable and start at just $20 for a 20 page book. At 75% off you’re looking at just $5. Calendars are normally $14.99 so now they’d be just $3.75. I can’t find anything stating when the deal ends so I’d jump on it. Check it out HERE.
There are countless lessons I learned from this man about life that I refer to daily. Drive, effort, commitment, teamwork, excellence, mental toughness, sportsmanship, risk taking etc. I feel so honored and lucky to have had him as a mentor and coach and credit Lavell in big part for who I am today. So sad to hear of his passing this am. Truly a great and kind man, quickest wit ever. You will be missed Lavell Edwards- RIP Legend!

Photographers Emil Sollie and Mats Grimsæth devised a concept that would involve a surfer under the Northern Lights. They teamed up with Red Bull and Elinchrom to make the vision a reality. They also got Mick Fanning, one of the world’s most talented and well-known surfers, on board.
The team headed to Lofoten Norway in hopes of making this whole thing come together – and it wasn’t easy. They described it as one of the most technically challenging shoots of their lives. When the shoot was done they weren’t even sure if they had any good shots to work with. As you’ll see below they actually nailed it with an amazing and unforgettable image.
