RileyShiery Posted February 12, 2016 Share Posted February 12, 2016 Hello Alamy Forums!I'm just another aspiring photographer my primary interest is Nature, I want to be like Jim Brandenburg, Galen Rowell, and Art Wolfe.I believe humans were given the unique powers we have in order to bear witness to Earth’s marvels, appreciate them, and act as stewards. I find myself constantly in awe of the world we get to inhabit. I have a BS in Zoology, and a BA in Photography, but I am reminded daily of how little I know. I have been carrying my camera and practicing photography for the past 8 years and I’m just getting to the point where I feel I can start sharing my work publicly. I am so excited and awed by nature and I believe it is my purpose in life to spread that love and enthusiasm. I have put in lots of time working on my photography, I think I am finally passably competent with my technique and am ready to put my time into making it work. I am just starting out and mostly lost, figuring out how to sustain myself financially by doing photography seems like it’s going to take a lot of trial and error, and time. The message I keep seeing is that it is impossible to make it nowadays as a nature photog, maybe that is true, but I have to make it someday somehow. So here I am JI am hoping I can learn a lot here at Alamy, and that I can finally start selling something, maybe in 10 more years I will have learned and sold enough of my work to quit my day job and shoot fulltime I am excited to meet all of my fellow photog comrades here at Alamy and hope that I can give as much help and guidance as I hope to receive J Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
