Last year I completed a direct stock photo sale with Elizabeth Arden for their new fragrance called Green Tea Cherry Blossom. They wanted an image of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden to use as the backdrop for the fragrance bottle. I originally shot this for the BBG’s 2011 annual calendar, which they used for the April image. Up to now, this is the largest stock sale I’ve ever made on my own (i.e., without going through one of my stock agencies – and yes, it was fine for me to do that since this image had not been submitted to any of my agencies).
The fun part of this is that I shot the image with my Panasonic point & shoot camera!
