One of my goals for my photography business was to have an image published with National Geographic Adventures… It was the first magazine where I started noticing a niche that I wanted to be a part of. I started researching credit lines and down I went, into the rabbit hole. The first image that inspired me to pursue outdoor adventure photography was a cover image from Crater Lake. Last December, the magazine folded and published it’s last edition. But the name continues online with a blog through NG. Today, I discovered that one of my images from a Youth Dynamics guide training trip was selected for a post. And like before, success looks different than what I thought. But I think success is really just being happy about what you have accomplished. Maybe it is being content, but to me it is more than that.
