Freelance Nature Photography – I am not big into writing about photography tips and tricks or ranting about the photography industry so this could be the only post I make this year focused on the business of nature photography.
How to start a nature photography business and be successful at it is always a hot topic of discussion among photographers. By no means am I an expert in the business of photography, but I do see the same mistakes made over and over by photographers just starting out.

Self Funded Photography Projects – As a freelance photographer, stock photography sales still play an important part of everyday business. These sales come from established clients, off the street clients and agencies that represent me. To add fresh imagery to ScenicNH Photography, I do self funded projects. Some of these projects last days, months or even years. One has even become a lifelong body of work.
Sitting back and waiting for photo requests and assignments does not work for me, so I am always producing imagery I feel will be profitable for future stock sales. I learned early on that there is not much of a market for generic landscape imagery, so I try to photograph subject matter that has impact on the environment.
