Blurb Book Contest

Although I do not consider myself a "professional photographer" by any means, under I {heart} faces criteria, I am.  I only picked up a DSLR for the first time back in September of '08, but a few people have paid me a little for helping them with their pictures, more for my time than anything.  Since I have received money from a few very generous friends for my photography services, I am considered "professional".   So, here is my entry for the i {heart} faces Blurb book contest, professional category.


I am submitting this photo into the www.iheartfaces.com Blurb Book photo contest. I am granting I ♥ Faces permission to use my photo in a printed version of a book for commercial use and possibly advertising of a photo book on both the Blurb and I ♥ Faces web sites.

Me too! I just added myself in the professional category with trembling hands. I don't think of myself that way, but people pay me to take there photos so according to the guidelines, that's it.

Your photo is beautiful. I can't believe you only just started. You have a great eye.

I can see why 1. people have paid you and 2. why they will continue to do so. This is a really wonderful image, with great subdued color, fun expression and composition.
