Another year older, another year crazier ...

Another year older, another year crazier ...

We've come around on another April 30th, and so I do what I do every year: I get a little older, I thank you all profusely, and I promise to keep at it.

Today is the seventh anniversary of The Turning Gate's first Lightroom-related plugin release, the event that set us upon the path to where we are now. Today is also my birthday.

And so I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continued interest in and support of our work. As we continue to push our product toward greatness, one small step after another, we do so constantly aware that our work is only possible because you continue to care about it. What we do, I think, is to enable, empower and educate photographers to take command of their own presence on the Web, to create a website that does more than just collect dust in the digital space, but which can be used as an active tool to grow or improve one's business and connection to clients and followers. We are grateful that you have entrusted us with this task, and will continue to live up to it as best we can. There are good things to come, and soon.

For now, the inbox is empty and I'm off to do birthday things, and then tomorrow it's back to code. Thank you once again for your support and trust, and the life you allow me to live.

-- Matt

  1. Happy birthday, Matt! Keep up the good work. My website wouldn’t look near as good without you!

  2. Happy Birthday! I’ve been using TTG’s LR Plugins since the Summer of 2008, and every year after it just gets better and better.
