Hello!  Been shooting stock photography (on a part-time basis) for a few years and thought I would join this site to improve that endeavor as well as to explore where I might go with my photography.

I just had my first shoot with a MM model.  Had a great time and think I got some quality pictures.  We will see what the inspectors on the stock site think!

Been lurking on the forums and this seems like a great site!  There seems to be many who are willing to help out to those who wish to pursue their craft!

Glad to be part of this community!

Welcome to the Mayhem...

Noticed you're interested in equestrian...
A very popular theme amongst many...

btw, never been a big fan of stock, don't feel comfortable about having a talent's likeness used without prior knowledge of the narrative...  think about this... seriously... 

That said, have been a contributor to Stock Boston back in the day... their focus was primarily academic a.k.a. textbook usage... would not consider it appropriate at this juncture...

all the best on your journey...

Your point about where a stock photos might end up is well taken… I have had thousands of image uses sold… only know where three or four have been used… it is a bit disconcerting…
Would love to find a way to utilize my photography interest in a different direction…
