Romanian photographer enters US market. His selling point (other than talent)? Pay What You Wish!
Lucian Husac is a Romanian photography aficionado who has invested more than 12 years in his greatest passion, photography. He has recently decided to make his photo prints accessible to everyone using a Pay What You Wish approach.
"Photography is my meditation, is my way to hit the pause button and absorb the world around me and I hope that my prints will open up different worlds in your homes. The idea behind a good photo is to inspire you, to help you connect with your personal stories or remind you that life is made of short and beautiful moments."
Lucian Husac, photographer and founder of PhotoStorya
"I decided to make my images accessible to everyone"
While the art speaks for itself, the pricing policy of PhotoStorya, centered on the Pay What You Wish model, is, of course, an attraction point in its own right. "During all these years of chasing good stories with my camera, I was trying to give my passion more meaning and to give something back. So, I decided to make my images accessible to everyone, using a Pay What You Wish approach for my prints. The minimum price covers the printing and, of course, the shipping of the item, whereas the maximum price is however much the client himself values the artwork.", Lucian Husac says.
Although having founded the platform as a means to display his own work, Lucian Husac hopes that, in the near future, PhotoStorya will be able to attract other photographers as well, from all over the world. Fellow professionals should know that, although unusual in the art world, the Pay What You Wish model has already elicited enthusiasm from clients: "Lucian's work is beautiful and the fact that you can choose your own budget is really welcomed, thank you once again!", says Jamie Collis, a US native.
