Bonnie knew she never wanted a conventional desk job but she didn’t know exactly what else was out there to do that didn’t involve eight hours in a chair staring at boring spreadsheets. Until, that is, she signed up to attend one of our live events in San Francisco. Today, in addition to her full-time job here at Great Escape Publishing, she makes over $10,000 a year from her photos. All in her spare time. Bonnie has a knack for breaking things down into simple language. She loves teaching and if you're with her on a photo expedition trip, she'll make sure you leave with your own saleable photos.
