Stock Photo Sunday – when the model is me – Westman Island, Iceland!

 

The majority of my 40+ years as a photographer has been behind the camera lens with rare photos of me as as an actual participant even during family events. Due to painful complications from successful cancer surgery in 2016, my previously active life has encountered some serious challenges forcing me to adjust how photography fits into my new phase of life.

Over the years, I’ve dabbled in contributing to various photo stock agencies like Alamy with modest success and only a handful of sales. My recent, ah ha moment was to begin submitting photos of someone I know, me!! So far I’ve submitted four and all were accepted.  I’m pumped!

This is one of me taken during my son’s 21st August birthday trip to Iceland with an overnight stay on Westman Island. It was accepted as taken, no filters, no clean-up and is now part of my Alamy portfolio.

Next steps; manifesting some appropriate sales of my stock images and submitting more selfie images and those of my family members.
