So, I decided to check out where I stood on Google Search for the term "atchafalaya Basin" after adding most of the images I have on Zenfolio to my Fine Art America page, to see if I can get more views/traffic for my photography. Seems to have worked so far, as I have gone up in the ranking. I searched it last week, and found that my work pretty much covered page 6. As of today's check, I am up to page 4!
Sadly, it seems as though it's more tuned to my fineartamerica page than my zenfolio page, but I am hoping that after submitting the sitemap to both google and Bing, that this provides some more traffic and impressions. Time will tell, and I will soon see some results, hopefully!
I have been working through an extensive list of galleries that are in the Chelsea art district in NYC as well, as I am under the impression that the Agora Art Gallery is termed "vanity gallery" which can go either good or bad on my resume, depending on the gallery I am applying to. I have found several that I will be applying to, as soon as I finalize my portfolio.
If you'd care to see how my portfolio looks at this point, as I don't have it available in the general section, feel free to visit the Tentative Portfolio page.
As always, if you're looking for a unique animal photograph, feel free to contact me, and I will see if it there is one nearby that I may be able to photograph.
