Leanne Howie commented on S Brian Berkun's blog post Fountain Hills Great Fair 2018, Where's the warm weather?! Where's the Buyers?!
"I was wondering about this show. There seems to be alot of vendors at this show which makes me believe that sales are few and far between if you're a newbie fighting for show dollars.  Nothing we can do about weather, just have to pray…"

Leanne Howie replied to Cindy Welch's discussion Budding Photographer
"I agree strongly. I was a landscape photog 10 years ago, realized it didn't make me happy or wasn't my best work, so I switched.  Now my stuff sells and I'm proud to show it at art shows with great results.  "

Hello Leanne,

Welcome to AFI!  I really like your work and am thinking about having my son show the train shots to my grandson, who at 16 mos. is already fascinated by trains.  We're so happy you found us here and hope we can be of some assistance to you as you traverse the art fair circuit.  Please don't hesitate to join in the conversations that can be quite informative and entertaining.  Thanks and continued success.

Oh, you're so welcome, Leanne...I loved hearing about how you got started and why, isn't it funny that I thought my grandsons would love to see the train photographs too?  Not just trains but Blake, who's 16 mos., loves cars, trucks, fire engines and airplanes!  How many grandsons do you have?  Blake has a new baby brother who's just six weeks old and that's it for us, so far.

Thanks, Leanne...I just may have to send you a photo of my grandson next to an old train.  Good luck at the show!
