Hello I'm Emma
started this topic @ 09:04 on 22/07/2012
As stated in the title I'm Emma. I'm 23 and looking to start up a shop. I am a wildlife, nature, and landscape photographer. My shop will be selling orginial prints, greeting cards, postcards and stickers of my photography in the first year then expand to things such as canvas prints. I have some prototypes arriving tomorrow and I'm quite excited about it.

RE: Hello I'm Emma
Good luck with your venture. Like the website, the dark background really shows up your photos well. I'm sure you will do very well.
You could consider selling your prints, cards, etc, in selected shops in your area or region until you find the ideal shop of your own. It would help your work reach a wider audience than one shop in one location.
