It’s exciting to announce that I am a Founding Thirty9 Artist! It’s been so hard to keep this a secret! I’ve been working with Thirty9, which is part of the Miller Professional Printing Company, since November. The site went up this March 🙂
As most of you know, I teach now, so I’m not marketing my photography work as much as my membership, but when I got an email from Jonna asking if I would be interested, I was happy! … but then had the thought “How much do they pay”? I’m a businesswoman and know throughout the years how companies rip us photographers off. Yes, I realize they have marketing costs, etc…but 10 to 15%, come on!
When Jonna told me that they pay their photographers 50% and plan to have a gateway where we can connect to the buyers, I was all over it! There are 2 ways to build on what you love to do. Thank the people who purchase your work and give them some love with a bonus or discount.
Thirty9 is a wonderful company that respects the photographer and our craft. I know they are looking for more photographers, so if you feel that your work is the right fit for the company, go for it. Apply here. If you’re not accepted, it’s ok… you can join my membership program and I’ll work with you to help improve your skills with our Photography Road Map.
