I am so thrilled to share some new and exciting news with you. Yesterday, I received an email that I was sure was a hoax or a scam. It was from one of the largest national stock photography companies that was asking if I was interested in becoming a contributor. I got mad that somebody would mess around and called their corporate office and after being transferred found out that it was a legitimate offer and that they genuinely want me as a contributor to their company and as a resource for assignments. I guess I learned a valuable lesson in being so skeptical. While I know that I have a long way to go and I continue to learn every day, I am so humbled and feel that this is such a huge compliment. When I called today to ask the last of my questions before signing the contract, I found out that while a lot of people request to be contributors, it's a lot less common to be invited to be one, so I'm even a little more in awe.
I want to thank all of you for allowing me to take your pictures and letting me use them to promote my business as I've gotten started. It's because of all of you that I have gained some attention and I appreciate it so much. I am counting my blessings and will never forget those of you that have given me the opportunity to learn and grow, especially at the beginning as I've started out. All my thanks to each and every one of you!
