I don't really consider myself to be an "artist." I know plenty of true artists, and I'm not sure I belong in that category. I really consider myself a marketing assistant, as I help marketers promote their businesses through my images.
For example, I've been hired by Visit Napa Valley to capture the beauty, fun, and spirit of the Napa Valley in order to promote the tourism business. Making the Napa Valley look beautiful is not a particularly hard job, however, but don't tell them that.
Today, they published a blog post about 6 Napa Valley Artists to Follow on Instagram, and I topped the list. Truly humbled that I'd even be considered.
