Stepping into the BIG LEAGUES

Sometime in the next 36 hours, I will be submitting 10 images for consideration to Photoshelter.

If I am accepted, I will be able to submit images to them for possible license to publications, magazines, newspapers, BOOKS! Eventually it will be where both my music and artistic images reside, plus any news images that might find a sale on the secondary market.

Jackie and I are trying to get it down to 10 of the proper size (they want BIG images) that show what I can do as a photographer.

NO MORE THAN 10!!!!!!!!!!!!

The potential for licensing fees is INCREDIBLE as Photoshelter is one of the big stock services.

And the beauty is, for 30% of the sale, they will handle everything for me, the negotiations, collecting the money, etc. It's like having an agent to do stuff for me that I find distasteful (the business side creeps me out, Jackie is trying to handle it.)

Part of my move to make my photography work more professional. It's also step one in our move to a larger web presence (a TailWind Imaging website is planned).

For now, we have the tough decision of WHICH 10 pictures from the last year or so?

Not easy.

We'll keep the Photoreflect site for portrait/wedding sales and to sell art prints. But the music has to come off.
