My new journey into stock photography...

posted on 14th of november, 2009

Just yesterday I decided to pursue this 'stock' photography avenue... something I've been a snob about for years. Thinking it was low class and way to much work.

I was wrong.

There are so many wonderful photos out there and what a fun time setting up shots. I've found myself really enjoying coming up with ideas, finding models and shooting the photos!

I'm a mother of two little girls and could definitely use any extra income my way. So I'm hoping someday this will help with that?

Any tips from some seasoned stock photographers?
I'm humbled and willing to learn!

Thank you!
