“I'm often asked how I secured photography gigs with National Geographic UK and Indonesia Tourism for example. The simple answer is through exposure. There is little point in buying expensive camera gear and travelling to the world's most photogenic places if you leave all your fabulous encounters on your hard drive. One of the newest and increasingly pertinent ways is to join Excio Photo Community. Excio not only offers you the chance to showcase your photography, but you can also join Zoom chat meetings, have your photography story told through their Blog, and collaborate with them.”
