Whether you’ve been photographing for a few months or years, one thing is certain. Your images are unique. They are from your perspective, your view on the subject. Your work is personal. The journey as an artist continues to evolve. Over the course of time, friends, family and acquaintances enjoy seeing your work. Since we live in the digital, social media and web-based world, sharing your work starts here versus just sending via an email or printing for the family album.
