I’ve been a Getty Images creative contributor with the Flickr Collection for a couple of years now and it has been a profitable enjoyable experience.

Many times since 2008 I have posted about my “need” to submit an application to become a regular creative Getty Images contributor.

I took the little quiz way back when and this or that stopped me from submitting the images for review.  Actually back then, I found the process intimidating. I felt that my images were OK, but I was afraid to have them scrutinized.  Then there was this whole thing of sending a disc of images to Dublin, Ireland to have the photos assessed blah blah blah.

Now the process is much more simple and I am over the fears that kept me from moving forward previously. With that said, I have 40 images up for review with releases, meta data & all that jazz.

Now, I’ll be waiting on pins & needles for the next 30 days to see if I was good enough….

My ultimate goal is to be freelance editorial for Getty. Let me see if I can clear this hurdle 1st.

I think I can!
