Here is a photo that I just printed to sell, to catch your attention 🙂
Alright, first off, I haven’t been doing much (well, anything really) for about a month. I mean, photography/business-wise; I’ve been doing quite a lot of other things. My husband came home from deployment a month ago, and I had a bunch of business craziness right before that, so I took a break to get ready for him to come home, and I guess I’ve been on vacation pretty much since then. 🙂 It’s about time to get going again, as I will hopefully be starting a new “chapter” (I hate clichés, but oh well) ASAP! This also relates to my craziness a month ago, which leads me to…
I have been accepted into the Spanish Village Art Center at Balboa Park!! I applied in April-ish, and the jury was May 30, right after my RAW show, and right before my husband came home. So I knew since then, but I just haven’t posted anything. I am still waiting on one more thing so I can start selling there, which is maybe good that it has taken so long, so that I got my nice little break. I did buy a couple more things to get my set-up prepared, so I worked a TINY bit, but I don’t really need to do anything else until I actually start selling photos there, so I’m just waiting on my last piece. Hopefully it will come soon! I’m REALLY hoping for next week, because I really want to get started out there!
For you San Diego people or people that are familiar with Balboa Park/Spanish Village, you probably understand how excited I am about this. If you have no idea what it is, it is an AMAZING opportunity. I posted before about how I was going to look into becoming a photojournalist, but this opportunity actually gives me the chance to do what I’ve been doing all along, and do what I love most, which is taking photos of whatever I want to take photos of, and selling them. Balboa Park is basically tourist central of San Diego, besides the beaches. And since San Diego is already a pretty tourist-y area, that’s a very high traffic location for me. I will be just setting up on the patio, so while setting up and taking down every day isn’t exactly my favorite thing to do, I get to just sell photos pretty much whenever I want to. I have no idea how it will go, but it has AMAZING potential and is basically the best chance I personally can think of to do what I want to do, but do it full time and possibly actually be able to make a living off of it. And I’m still my own boss! I was sooooo worried I wasn’t going to be accepted, because the opportunity seems too good to be true. Like I said, I hope I get that last piece so I can start selling there and see how it actually goes!
I am not sure what days I will be there yet, but I am going to try to be there most days. If I work out a set schedule, I will post it on here. Hopefully any of you that are in the area will come visit me though!
