It’s been 3 years, and my goal was to have 1000 images in 12 months! It’s not as easy as you’d think! But being a stock photographer/vector artist has taught me so much! It’s forced me to expand my talents, look for new things, explore new ideas and be just a little more bold. It also showed me what not to do (there are enough flowers and squirrels out there, thank you very much) - and enabled me to tap the creativity I was born with. These days, I only submit the best of my wildlife and nature photos.
New and better equipment helped a lot - to bring my acceptance ratio up. Reading blogs and looking at other portfolios strengthened my skills. Thank you to all of you who share your expertise!
