It’s hard not to appreciate the awesomeness of every photo in Chris Burkard’s portfolio, and we have featured his work a couple times in the past–he was even kind enough to share these awesome night landscape photography tips with us last year. So, of course, we’re happy to see his success as a photographer reach new heights.

This time around, it’s happening in the form of Instagram fans. I just spied a tweet from Burkard himself, announcing he has just reached the one million follower milestone. To help him celebrate and give back to his fans, he’s giving “thousands of free prints” away.

If You Want In On The Free Artwork, Hurry

In case you want to grab a free Burkard print of your own (a $50 value), check out Burkard’s Instagram account and follow the instructions on his post there (we’ve also embedded it up there ^^). You’ll be directed to an online gallery where you can choose from about 60 different photos. You’ll just have to spring for the nominal shipping and handling fee. Now that’s a pretty sweet deal. Thanks, Chris! And now here’s more inspiration from Burkard’s Instagram to keep your eyes happy:

    Why are you putting words in his mouth? He’s not “giving back”. He said he’s saying “thank you”.

    He’s being generous and you’re making it sound like he owes it to us. What’s your problem, Tiffany, can’t you just accept a charitable act for what it is?

      Wow, that was a bit harsh, i’m sure she didn’t mean it that way.

        I was harsh because this was the second time she did it. There was a story a couple of days ago about a guy who does fantasy photographs for kids with cancer. HE never described it as “giving back”, but Tiffany did. I more politely pointed out her error then, and explained why it was an error.

          Problem is that you are simply a troll. Who gives a damn about semantics. People like you and the other trolls that comment here need to go create something instead of criticizing others.

            Sean, you recently wrote a post that started “Stupidest, most self-indulgent, self-important article I have read in a long time.” You ended another post with “Where are the rioters? … Oh, wait…he’s white. Silly me.” So I guess you would know about trolls.

            As for who cares about semantics? I do. Your English teachers did. Anyone trying to write coherently should. People like Tiffany who are reporting news have an ethical obligation to.

      Who cares, chill man! If you don’t like it, perhaps you should write your own article instead of acting like a total jerk?

        The term “give back” is a political term that implies that people has received something they’re not entitled to – like a child who takes a toy – and are therefore obligated to “give it back”. On the other hand, the word “give” implies an act of generosity. “Give back” is a term intended to shame people into giving, is if they owe a debt rather than choose to be generous.

        If the photographer had used the term “give back” to describe what he was doing, Tiffany would be accurate in reporting that. But if he didn’t say that, then she is distorting his motivations, diminishing the virtue of his actions, and projecting her political assumptions on another person.

          Actually ‘giving back’ is often used as a way to describe a generous action that is not simply writing a check. Things like volunteering with a social cause, training the little League and participating in aid projects are referred to as ‘giving back’ to the community.

          Totally different thing from say a sallery giveback

            “a generous action that is not simply writing a check”: The correct words for that are “giving”, “volunteering”, or “contributing”.

            You’ll sometimes hear people say “this community has done so much for me, I want to give back”. Well, what has the community done for him? If he has a good job, his salary is in exchange for his work – no gift was involved. If he has received charitable assistance, that assistance was provided with no demand of repayment, so he still hasn’t incurred an obligation. There’s nothing for him to “give back”.

            But if he has a good heart, there are certainly things he can “give”.

            “Giving” is morally better than “giving back”. Why does Tiffany not give people credit for it?

            Aleroe,
            I guess you can take your grammatical issues with some more influential people than Tiffany, say Mr. Gates for example: http://abcnews.go.com/ThisWeek/GlobalHealth/story?id=1286093
            Or Mr. Buffet:

            It’s not grammar, it’s meaning.

            If Gates wants to describe what he’s doing as “giving back”, that’s his business. I disagree – I don’t think he owes anyone anything – but at least he’s only talking about himself and if that’s his philosophy or politics or religion, so be it. Tiffany is writing about other people, and she shouldn’t misrepresent their thinking.
