Since 2013, a lot has happened both professionally and personally, which has ultimately shaped the way I shoot today.
At the “Escape” YPA gallery showing, a crew from Glasshouse Images out of New York City gave a lecture on stock photography. I clung to what they said, including the director’s business card. For the past two years, I toyed with the idea of submitting my portfolio, but was always stifled by my immense fear of failure and decided to just shoot freelance… no pressure there, right?
This past January, I finally contacted Glasshouse and was promptly signed. In addition, I have been selling my expired film work in shops and at art festivals. After giving birth to my daughter (I’m now due any day with my second baby), it imposed a sense of urgency to take chances and actively pursue my dreams, even if failure loomed.
