I am retired from the Military and just graduated from Academy of Art college in December, majoring in Photography. I am on the viewbug website and am ranked in the top 20% of photographers despite only uploading nine photos all year. I also have over 300 top class and ten community awards on that site as well. I also joined a site called guru shots where I have been featured in 12 exhibitions & one magazine to date. It has a scale system from Popular to All-Star. My photos have been mostly in the Elite/All-Star range with Elite being just below All-Star. I hope to work for National Geographic or Southern Living as a contributing photographer at some point. However, I am open to any Photographic opportunities that may arise.
