Trying to make any money of art seems to be such a difficult process so here’s another avenue to acquire my work, stock photography. You can now use my art as the background to sell horrible things.
I’ve just learned about Pixoto.com, and it’s addictive nature. You upload your photos and then assign them to category. Then it will be judged by a random jury. You are the jury, in the “vote” portion of the site you are given two images and a category heading you then you click on which image you think is better. Through their algorithm images are rated and awards are given for each day, month and year.

“Pixoto is an online community where photographers compete to have the best images in their category.
Submitted images are matched against each other in the ImageDuel system and voted on by other community members. The winners advance on the Image Leaderboards and vie for the coveted top spot. By surfacing the best images to the top of the Leaderboard, Pixoto hopes to be the place to find the highest-quality photographs in any given subject.
Pixoto also has a directory of Players that is sorted by image score. For example you can find a list of the top Wedding photographers on Pixoto and then view their profile pages. Profile pages are customizable and include top-scoring images, bios and contact information.Pixoto offers cash prizes every week to the best image in each category and periodically will run larger contests related to specific content areas.”

I just got done reading Ranger Confidential and this image stuck out in my mind through-out the entire book. The book is about a female ranger and her experiences, as well as her friends and colleagues, with the National Parks Service. The young ranger pictured is how imagine the protagonist to be before a rough life as a Park Ranger turns them into a completely different person.
