Celebrating 110 Photographs Sold

I took my first photograph sometime in 2005. I had started with my dad's twenty year old manual Canon, we developed the film in our college's dark room, experimented with different processes and techniques.

In 2007 after much convincing my dad bought me my first DSLR, Canon of course! Back then a DSLR wasn't a household gadget.. I bought my first lens.. both of which I still use today.

I first decided to start selling my work in 2008. I tried different platforms and venues, I participated in an online auction where I sold my first four photographs.

In 2009 I joined Etsy and it took me four months to make my first sale.. and now today five years later I have passed a milestone.. I sold my 110th photograph.. a wohoo is in order, don't you think? Eight of those photographs hang in the Regional Headquarters of PNC Bank, New Jersey. Ten crossed international borders.

What better way to celebrate than to spread the love I am offering 25% OFF your next order all week long.. with code WOHOO25
