Woohoo, I just made it to 1,000 images in my Stocksy United portfolio! It's taken a little longer than I expected, but it's been a great journey and learning experience, now on to 2,000! With Stocksy adding video to the site this month, it should be a lot fun and a lot more learning. :-) Time to get back to shooting!
