Licensing Theme Challenge
Week 1: Check In
We're mid way through our first week in the licensing challenge!
Have you been able to carve out a little bit of time to shoot?
I know it can feel overwhelming, which is why I took you behind the scenes of my first shoot for this challenge.
In all, I probably only photographed for about 15 minutes and then spent another 45 minutes processing the shoot.
So if you don't have that much time, see how you can squeeze in 5 minutes of photographing and then build from there.
Now, at the end of my video from week one I promised you that I would let you know whether my images were accepted or not.
In this video I take you behind the scenes of what was accepted and how I try to track my submissions:
And in part two of our check in I take you into my submission to another agency to discuss what was accepted and what was not.
We also discuss the importance of shooting for variety in order to increase your chances of your work being accepted!

I would love to see what you create, so feel free to share your portfolio with me by joining us in my artists' group on Facebook Beneath the Surface.
PS: If you want to get a jump start on portfolio building, I have put together an ebook called Licensed to Thrill of my 30 favorite book cover themes to help inspire your future photoshoots to build a portfolio that sells!
Licensed to Thrill is also now also a bonus for all students who enroll in Uncovered: Selling Your Art for Book Covers if you're interested in in-depth help in your licensing career, which is a pretty sweet deal!
