Photographers of all levels are finding the Internet an excellent tool for getting their work noticed. It doesn’t matter if the photographer is just trying to show off images to friends and family or are struggling to get discovered, no one should ignore using the tools of technology.
Creating a website or better yet, a blog reaches a larger audience than sitting in a tent at the local art show. Utilizing the many online tools will help expose one’s work in ways far beyond our neighborhood. As an added bonus Internet marketing is relatively inexpensive if not downright cheap!
