I'll probably always classify myself as an aspiring photographer even if I become world famous. I've had some very positive affirmations recently, even some commercial success, and I've been thinking about getting my name out there more. Then I started thinking about why I follow certain photographers; is it because they have amazing social media strategies? Is it because their images are getting printed on cereal boxes (landscapeeios)? If you want to get noticed my advice would be to put energy into creating something beautiful. The figurative "magic beans" to popularity in nature photography are consistently capturing great images over a long period of time. Enjoy the journey, stick to your passion, and everything else will happen naturally.
