Preparing to be a FEATURED Photographer
My photography adventure just keeps getting better and better!
Am I ever excited to share with you the invitation that’s been offered to me. As you may have read in my blog post last week http://www.carolynclarkephotography.com/acceptance-into-aibp/ , I was accepted through a juried process into the Association of International Boudoir Photographers.
This in itself is huge and happy news for me, and THEN…
…the following day, I received THIS amazing invitation in my email inbox…
“Welcome, Carolyn Clarke Photography, to the Association of International Boudoir Photographers! We would love to feature you, to appear on our website, the 2nd Week in May! For your feature, we will need 7 to 10 of your favorite watermarked images. Lynn Clark will soon contact you for an interview. We are so happy to have you in our association!”
Oh my goodness! Here’s what is written about being a Featured Photographer…
“The benefits of being a Featured Photographer include: Free (additional) exposure! When you are accepted into AIBP, you will be a featured photographer at some point. Seen by over 100,000 eyes online between our website traffic and various social media pages, your feature will be noticed. We will feature you on our blog, Facebook, and we will all give you shout-outs any time we get the chance. Your feature will consist of an interview with about 4 questions, and will display a selection of your images (watermarked with your logo/website information) so people can see a preview of your work.”
Am I delirious with excitement? Definitely!
Am I nervous as heck? Sure.
Do I want to amp up my portfolio before submission time? Yes, indeed!
These coming weeks will find me super busy taking a wide variety of additional images to expand my portfolio, creating a broader selection of gorgeous photographs to include in my feature presentation to AIBP. What a gift of an opportunity!
Thanks for letting me share my over-the-moon excitement with you.
