Selling work

A few week ago I got contacted from an art director at a company called Polarmax. They specialize in technical winter time thermal clothing. They had seen a photograph that I had taken last season (on facebook of all places) of one of their riders and wanted to use it to place above display racks in 30 stores on the east coast. The negotiation phase soon kicked in and I worked out a deal to stock my closet with their top of the line products as well as cash. The lessons learned from this would be to know where to find the photo by labeling your hard drives correctly. Share your work with as many people as possible. Don't be afraid to negotiate to what you really want. links polarmax yousendit.com (ideal for sending large files to companies or art directors) equipment used canon 5d mark ii canon 70-200 2.8 (3) pocket wizard plus ii's (2) alien bee 1600's
