Breaking into the world of print takes more than talent, it takes a big dose of diligence as well, and I'm happy to report that I "might" be a future Coastal Living West Coast Freelance Photographer! Not only is it exciting to be an occasional freelancer, it is icing on the cake to freelance for my favorite magazine!
Here is the editor's reply to my recent submission; Audrey & Chuck's Sea Ranch Wedding:
I just wanted to let you know that everyone at Coastal loved the wedding photos—especially the cute pig! However, we don’t focus a lot on weddings—although there is water. Would you be willing to send a copy of your portfolio or even a few photos that we could keep—since you’re located in Sonoma, we might be interested in using you as one of our freelance photographers on the West coast!
