When YOTS began in 2019, there was no anticipation of a continuing project, let alone 1,100+ consecutive sunrises. From the beginning, the plan was to release a single First Edition print for each morning's select sunrise photo.

The intent of the First Edition prints is to offer something unique. First Edition prints will now include embossing, a hand-written thank you note, a certificate of authenticity, a matching 5x7, and a little packaging flare.

Inspired by Hometown Invasion Tour and Radiohead, I've always loved unique pricing models. YOTS I prints are priced for the nth day of the year. January 1 was sold for $1, January 2 for $2, all the way to December 31, for $365. While I love this model for several reasons, it definitely became too convoluted.

For the sake of ease, First Edition prints now have a flat rate of $180. However, I want to continue to offer something unique and special with First Edition prints for what this project personally means to me. Once the first edition is sold, I will create an open edition for the same size and format, but without the embellishments.

Photo publishing schedule
The current workflow is to publish one batch of photos each week. Each batch of 12 photos will include one sunrise from each month. Subscribe to receieve weekly photo and project updates. Eager to see a particular date? Make a request for which sunrise gets published next.
