It’s a land of baby steps and self promotion. The desire to make photography work is a two headed monster. The people I work with are well aware of my photographic ability but it is difficult to let other people know with out shameless plugs for photo shoots. My first publishing was a big deal and a bit of a fluke, I ended up meeting the chief editor at an ugly sweater party he said, “Nice camera, send me some photos and I’ll publish them and give you credit.” A step that put me in the right direction, I have also gotten published in the Steamboat Pilot for one of my photos of the cowboy downhill. I feel like the largest step is on the Backcountry magazine website, one of my shots being featured on the opening page of the site.
