Life drastically changed after my partial thyroid surgery, diagnosis of cancer and still painful recovery while running a photographic design business. I’d like to say that I was able to power through it but that didn’t happen, pain is funny that way.
The upshot was finally being forced to literally sit back, feet up and finally catch-up on reading photography business emails, listen to business marketing podcasts that helped to re-evaluate where my business was, where I wanted it to be and how to work smarter not harder to get there. The first step was acknowledging that due to my painful surgical complications, leaving my home was not going to be possible which meant no new photographs or design images for awhile. However, this also meant doing something that had been on the back burner of projects, going through years worth of images I already had in my file folders to see what could be accepted by photography stock companies.
One of my favorites things to photograph walking through the Boston Public Garden are the hawks in their aerie and the junior hawks as they navigate flying once they leave the nest. Happily, the team at Stockimo (mobile photo app) have agreed with most of my submissions including this colorful junior hawk photo for sale on Alamy.com as shown below. 🙂
