About Our Gifts to You

The Luminous Endowment for Photographers is about

both giving and receiving. Givers also will receive.

This brief video describes our concept of
Paying it Forward

Giving is its own reward. But we also want you to share the pleasure of receiving. When you make a donation you will receive a gift of one of Michael Reichmann's new books, based on your level of giving. Please visit our DONATE page for more information.

The only way to obtain a copy of "Michael Reichmann – a 20 Year Photography Retrospective" will be through a donation to The Luminous Endowment For Photographers.



Available Rewards – $350 / $500 Donations
