It’s not always about Money

In March 2015 Plymouth got to experience a solar eclipse that had 40% of the sun covered by the moon. Pretty much the whole city were on the Hoe watching the event, as i was too, when I had a sudden idea to photograph the eclipse through Plymouth’s most famous landmark, Smeaton’s Tower. I didn’t think much of it until the facebook page of Plymouth University asked for images of the eclipse, I decided to post mine. The image was a huge hit for those who liked the page, so much so that people were willing to buy a copy of the image, sadly I didn’t know much about the trade of selling work. Again, something that would have proved vital to those studying photography and something I can also look into in the future.

Shame it wasn’t on Instagram..
