I've been lucky enough that randomly, two really goddamn big sites have picked up a few photos from my Flickr stream, and as a result I've gotten about 10000 views to my page in the last 36 hours.
First and foremost, Reddit linked to my photo "There Will Be Peace In Our Time" featuring Old Ben Kenobi and Darth Vader doing an awesome fist bump.
Secondly, the good folks over at io9 grabbed 5 of my pics and featured them in their 'Star Wars Celebration Costumes' photo gallery.
What a great weekend - here's links, if you're interested.

So, rather than rely solely on my Flickr (www.flickr.com/johnnycorduroy for those that're interested) which has kind of become my photo repository - everything goes up there - I think my DeviantArt site will be my portfolio.
So, in my opinion, you'll see only my best shots, only the photos I think are worth showing to people. Please, feel free to comment and offer critique or advice - I thrive on it. :)
Thanks in advance!
OH - and if you see something you like, and you'd like to hire a photographer, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
