Introduction from the Cre:Source New Guy
Posted Tuesday, 3 July 2007 in Photography
I'm on a mission, dear readers. I want to get to know you better. Don't worry, nothing romantic – I want to get to know you in a "stock photography" context!
I want to know who you are, what you are interested in, if there are things you need help with, things you would like to know about ...
Crestock have asked me to join the blog team here and write for Cre:Source. To do this well I need your help. What would you like to see from this blog?
Before you tell me about you I guess it is only polite for me to introduce myself. I'm Chris Garrett and I am brand new to the world of stock photography. One of the things I will be writing about is my journey from absolute beginner to, hopefully, profitable stock photographer. While I have been having fun with my DSLR for a couple of years, now I would like my hobby to at least pay towards itself. A position I expect a fair few of you can relate to!
When I am not out taking photographs in the cold and wet fields around my home in Yorkshire, England, I am usually found at my digital photography blog, dslrblog
, or my blogging and marketing blog, chrisg.com
I am getting to know professional and successful photographers, grilling them for all their best tips and insider knowledge on what works in photography and the stock photography market in particular. I'm going to share what I learn with you!
- How to get started in stock photography
- Step by step from beginner to profit
- The ten reasons most photographs get rejected
- What you need to know to make money from stock photographs
- Expert tips from the worlds most successful stock photographers
Make sure you subscribe so you don't miss a single tip
So now I have given you a small introduction, it is your turn.
