My name is Rachael Towne, and I am the author, editor and creator of photuluminary.com.  I am also a microstock contributor to sites such as iStockphoto, Shutterstock and Texturevault.

In addition, I have a husband, three children and a kitty.  My son is 20 and my youngest daughter is only 7 months old, so things can get pretty interesting!  We happily live in a comfy home in the city of Napa, CA.

Don’t hesitate to contact me. I’d love to hear from you!

    Hi Rachael,
    I liked your review and tutorial on Photomatix Pro 4 and put links to the article and to your photoluminary site on my HDR info site:
    I wonder if you might like to allow me to add one of your favorite HDRs to the post? Please let me know if you like that idea!

    • Hi Richard. Thanks so much! I always feel honored when my writings are featured on other sites. It would be very nice to have one of my favorite HDRs added to the post. In fact, my two favorites of my own work, are the two in my BlogCritics article. So, I would love to have one or both of those in your post. Thanks again, and your site is nice 🙂

    Wow! gorgeous site, Rachael! How did I miss its launch? how long have you had it? LOVE your art! soooooo exquisite… RICH in color and LIFE and imagination! So glad you have seized control of your creations and made a home for them! I need to sign up for your postings. xo

  3. Hi Kathleen. Thanks for visiting and for your continued kindness and encouragement. I just checked out your site as well. I love the colors and the header design. Did you design it yourself?

    I just read your post called Romancing Your Damon, and I was struck by the part about needing “playmates”. I guess I just recently starting pining for this in my life, after a few years of just wanting to be left alone for the most part. I am ready to embrace humanity and connect with people on a significant level. I guess the readiness means that it will come. Thanks again.

    Hi Rachel,

    I was looking for an old paper image and I stumbled across this site. You have beautiful art. I need to ask you if the “funky” brown paper can be used for free for other projects?

    Thank you

  5. Hi Octavia,

    Yes, you can use it for free. If you use it Online or in a commercial way I would love attribution. However, I won’t “come after you” if that doesn’t happen 🙂

    Thanks for the compliment and the comment.
