Exciting News!!!

I have just had the most amazing week. I sold 23 of my cards!!! Whoo Hoo…I can’t believe it. There is a little secret to that success which ofcourse I am willing to share!

Every three months or so I place an order for a card of each of the images I have uploaded. The quality is so divine and the price such good value, that I splurge. I now have a nice little collection of cards and ofcourse, when the opportunity arises I actually use them as ‘cards’ for family and friends.

I had a brainwave the other day and brought my box of cards into work with me. I then sent around an e-mail reminding my colleagues that Mother’s Day was just around the corner and that they could look at my ‘samples’ to see if they were interested………Well the rest is history!

A wise old photographer gave me a great tip. If you are trying to sell your images, you must have them ready for purchase. Trying to sell from a thumbnail or storyboard is not as compelling as being able to tuck your purchase under your arm and walk away with it. I think I might be on to something LOL

While I’m here I might as well toot about my 1st place in the Bluebirds of Happiness Challenge for the #12 Great Features Group. The image was BlueJay One of my absolute favourite images. Thank you to all who voted and the hosts and moderators of that group. It is indeed an honour.

Lastly, a colleague has just asked me to shoot her wedding! It is going to be the most amazing military (navy) wedding with full military guard of honour. The ceremony is being held at the Naval Chapel at Watson’s Bay, Sydney and this setting alone is spectacular!! I have asked my dear friend and amazing photographer Barb Leopold to be co-photographer. We are very excited and nervous. We have not done a wedding before, but we are determined to do well! Wish us luck.

Thanks for stopping by, all the best
