Talk about a nice way to start the week. I received a wonderful sitemail form my friend Martine Doucet informing me that one of my initial offerings from the 2012 Berlin Istockalypse was selected as photo of the week on Istockphoto. I feel quite honored to have a piece my work selected from amongst millions of photographs and put on the front page. I also feel blessed to be part of such a great community. Going exclusive has brought me so much in the past year – not only a vast income increase, but more importantly, I’ve gotten to meet extraordinary people, attend a lypse, learn about so many angles of the stock photography world, get many files into the high end collections and represented at Getty Images, and now this… Awwww. I’m touched. I really feel part of the family. many of whom I’ll see again or meet for the first time in a few weeks when I attend the Lenk Minilypse. Can’t wait. Huge thanks to everyone involved and interested in my work. And to you for reading this. Have a great week.
