The field of photography is nothing less than intimidating.
Wednesday of this week I had the opportunity to make some images for The Baltimore Sun.
Earlier in the week I took some great advice I had gotten from fellow photographer Patrick Semansky and started making some cold calls (or emails in this case).
My first round landed me on the freelance list for Baltimore Sun Media Group also known as Patuxent Publishing. After this I continued to reach out to as many different outlets, Tuesday night I sent an email to the editors over at The Sun. Wednesday morning they had an assignment for me that afternoon.
I prepared as quickly as I could and headed over to a local youth center to do a feature on a post-graduate basketball team from Mt. Zion Academy.
The story was set to go to print on Friday, not sure if they liked the images I sent in I p̶a̶t̶i̶e̶n̶t̶l̶y̶ waited for the story to go to print.
I woke up this morning to find one of my images in print.
As I said earlier the field of photography is intimidating but maybe if I keep making these baby steps they will add up.
Until next time, take care!
