3 Quick Tips to Market for More Downloads

posted on 28th of may, 2012

Just like some people think that anyone with a decent camera can point, shoot, and create a great image, some photographers seem to think that great images should somehow sell themselves. It's true that sites like DT take a lot of the burden of marketing off our shoulders, but if there are a few simple things we can do to increase the exposure of our portfolio, why not do them?

About me

I have had a camera in my hand ever since I can remember. I was always the kid that wanted to trot down to the scene of the crime, or truck accident, or whatever, and get the images that would document that event for posterity.
