The Gift of Photography
Photo Albums or Calendars from Printique.comOver the years, I have purchased many photo albums and calendars from Printique, which used to be known as Adorama Pix. I have never been disappointed by the quality of items I have received from them. They have a robust offering of photography items but the albums and calendars are the specific items I can personally vouch for. I will be ordering a few calendars this year for my 2021 photo calendar. In fact, if anyone is interested in purchasing one of my calendars please reach out to me via email [email protected] or on my Instagram @instadurr. It’s the gift that keeps on giving the whole year. Also, here is a short video on Printique’s photo albums.

Photo Books and Fine Art PrintsAs we know it has been a tough year for many types of jobs and professional photographers are probably among the hardest hit. With a lot of photographers businesses based on travel and events it’s no secret that it has been a difficult year. One way to help support those photographers is to purchase prints or photo books from them. I am sure you all have favorite photographers, even if you are a professional yourself. Taking a look at those photography websites and seeing what type of offerings they might have would be a great gift for yourself or for others. Below are some links to a few photographers we have talked to or worked with this year that are offering books.
And of course PhotoPXL’s very own, Kevin Raber
These are just a few photographers we have worked with this year but we encourage you to support any of your favorite photographer’s work.
Remember, at PhotoPXL we believe photography isn’t finished until you are holding that print in your hand and we hope this list has opened your mind to some amazing gift options this holiday season. It is important, now more than ever, that we don’t lose sight of creativity and support each other during this crazy time in our history. I hope anyone reading this has a happy holiday season and thank you for taking the time to view and support our work here at PhotoPXL, where we are working every day to help enhance your vision.
Michael Durr November 2020
After studying broadcast journalism at Illinois State University, I began my career in Central Illinois creating commercials and on-air promotions for local television affiliates. From 2008 to 2012, I worked for The Marketing Store where I created content for clients such as McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, and Southern Comfort. From there, I worked for Maddock Douglas, an innovation consulting firm, developing an internal photo/video offering. I left Maddock Douglas to be a creative director at FÁS Chicago, where I worked primarily for Case Construction. In 2017, I relocated to Indianapolis with my wife and two sons and I have started Michael Durr Photo/Video, LLC. Currently, I work in partnership with Kevin Raber and PhotoPXL, creating video content on all things photography. In addition I work on other freelance projects primarily around the midwest. Throughout my career, talented friends and great mentors have surrounded me. I have been fortunate to wake up every day never feeling like I was going to work. The combination of my professional experience, personality and drive to improve has given me a unique perspective from behind the lens. It is a combination of work and life that inspires me.
