This week is very important to me . First I won third place in the Facebook Wildlife contest and now I sold one of my pictures to a company for using in their flyer .And tomorrow I am going to shoot my first wedding occasion in Logan ( Wait for the pictures ).
Jeff Kerkman from Adinfini , Wisconsin sent me an email asking whether they can use one of my picture (Harley in Snow ) in one of their client flyer . The client (The Harley-Davidson Shop of Winona ) came across my picture in Google and wanted to use it for their official flyer . I think its a privilege for me to see one of my picture being used in a professional banner and I decided to sell that picture for a small price . Here is the picture which is my first sale which was shot from my apartment complex parking lot . I am really happy for this accomplishment and waiting from Jeff to get a copy of the flyer .
I am proud to announce that I was placed third in the contest conducted by the “The Weekly Wildlife, Nature and Conservation Photography group” in Facebook .It was the Snake eating the toad picture which earned me this recognition .And to my surprise my favorite wildlife photographer Kalyan Varma voted for my picture . It was his pictures which inspired me into photography . This is the first contest that I participated and its been a good motivation that I should participate more in future .
Here is the screenshot of the Facebook page where the winners were announced .
