POZ Contributor Blog: Dave Summers
PropertyOfZack is very excited to be bringing Dave Summers (website, webstore) back for a second Contributor Blog. In the last six months, Dave launched a webstore that features limited quantity prints our favorite artists each month. I thought it would interesting to have Dave write-up a blog post on his inspiration behind launching the print store in addition to what it takes to lock down consent for the prints to be sold form artists and managers. It’s a great read, so check it out and enjoy!
I’m back. It’s been almost a full 6 months since my last entry and I’m happy to report some new changes on the Summers Photography front. The biggest and most notable change would have to be my online print store. So I’m going to take a few paragraphs to discuss my store’s origins, how difficult the whole process’ can be, and I’m going to try to do it without sounding like an opinionated asshole (but I fucking doubt it).
So here we go.
This Spring, I tour managed on The Wildlife Tour (La Dispute, Balance And Composure, All Get Out, and Sainthood Reps) and it was without a doubt one of the best times I’ve ever had. Made new friends, took lots of photos, and got to see the country doing what I love. I was on a complete high the whole time and it even stayed with me as I returned home and it lasted for about a week. Since I didn’t have a day job at the time I elected myself the Mayor of Chill Town. I slept till 3PM…
I read that as “Mayor of Chili Town” at first.
I want to be the Mayor of Chili Town someday.

Can’t believe this think leaked so quick. Guess they can commiserate with their tourmates over it.
