When you take time to photograph…take time to submit your images to a variety of sites to help expose your business and craft. I have had clients find me because of my work via contests or submissions to a variety of magazines and newsletters.
If you’re on my blog, then you can see that I have been on Outdoor Photographer, Popular Photography and Nik (now Google Nik). I have met some really amazing people just from these three companies. But that’s not the only media presence I’ve been fortunate to be on. Below are a couple of examples where my work has been noticed and I’ve made money from it.
Depending on what type of photographer you are will depend on where you’ll submit images. But just to get you started check these out:
This site is a good resource to see what other photographers are shooting. When I need a pick-me-up, I go here.
If you’re an outdoor photographer definitely check this website out. Click around and have some fun! Check out the assignments area for a challenge.
This is a great company. They pay you and give you credit when you’re asked to be published in their magazine.
What I like about pixoto is that you can submit images for free and win prizes. I also like this site because it’s not a popularity contest. Check it out and vote for yourself and you’ll see what I mean.
I’m new to View Bug but have heard good things. Let me know what you think?
The next two links will help you find a variety of contests:

Before you submit anything please take time to read all details. You don’t want to give your work away unless you’re donating it. If you’re not getting paid for the image make sure they credit you so other potential clients can find you.
