In just under 3 months, my website, Gateway PhotoArtistry™ (www.gatewayphotoartistry.com), was visited by its 500th person yesterday! Using social media, blog posts and word-of-mouth, Gateway PhotoArtistry™ has been able to attract 500 potential customers to my virtual on-line store offering captivating images of nature, wildlife, sports/action and portraiture photography and my original poetry.
My website is a "work in progress" as I learn more and more about website development. I'm adding more photographs each week, including images from portrait sessions. I'm scheduled to travel later this summer to some of the most beautiful places I've seen in the States, Arizona and Colorado! I plan to photograph the Grand Canyon, the Petrified Forest, the Painted Desert and Pike's Peak.
I've been entrusted with the gifts to photograph and write poetry, and starting Gateway PhotoArtistry™ just seemed to be the best way to share it with everyone, and yes, try to make some money doing it. :)
I hope you will continue to visit my website occasionally to see what I've added, or take your first tour now. "Like" my Facebook page, subscribe to this blog, or give me your e-mail address on my website and you'll be the first to know when I've added new photographs or launched a new promotion. Currently, I'm hosting a Father's Day promotion, www.gatewayphotoartistry.com/blog/2012/6/35-off-for-dads-and-grads-at-gateway-photoartistry.
Please remember that this is my business so copying my photographs or my poetry to use for your own purposes is stealing. I hate to be blunt, but that's what it is. If it was easy to take good photographs and write poetry, everyone would do it. If you'd like to use my work for any purpose other than posting it on a social media site in whole, please contact me and I'll be happy to work something out with you. I truly appreciate your cooperation.
Thank you for supporting my business!
