I just sold my first items on the etsy.com website, the most exciting news is that it was purchase by a company in California to be used on the set of NBC's Parenthood - 3rd season. It was 3 lensbaby macro shots (wasp, cricket, and dragonfly). I couldn't be more excited, well if I actually see them on the show I probably will be more excited. They are suppose to be a permanent set dressing. Oh my, how COOL is that!

Parenthood is one of my favorite shows. I can see why they would want some of your fantastic insect images.

Thank you Rich you are so kind. I wanted to ask you how your show went, did you sell any of the lensbaby shots that you had printed on the glass? I love them!! If I ever have one I think worthy I want to do the same thing, it is beautiful.

Yes, I have sold two of the Lensbaby prints on glass. People love them, and the gallery has told me that so many have commented on them, but apparently can't deal with the high price.

Thanks again,

Was interviewed at work by a local new station Thursday, they found out from a friend that my lensbaby photos were purchased by NBC and used on the Parenthood show. They were actually in last Tuesday evenings episode around 16 minutes in. They were props in the classroom where the autistic boy was sent for detention.

Here is the link to our local news station; they ran a piece on me last night after Parenthood about the photos that NBC purchased through my etsy store to use on Parenthood season 3. We saw the pictures last week during the clip when the autistic boy was in a classroom talking to his cousin. All three of the pictures are behind their heads. Only obvious if you were looking for them, lol.
