An Attitude of Gratitude

I first heard the affirmation “An Attitude of Gratitude” from my mentor, Mark Victor Hansen (, when I started my business many years ago. Today, I want to express my deepest gratitude to the dozens of photographers sharing their success stories with me for my new marketing book,

You  have all been amazing, kind and compassionate. With your permission, I have been re-posting your images on my Instagram, #themariapiscopo, and getting wonderful feedback.

Thank you for all the images you capture and all the good you see in this crazy, lovely world.

Merry Christmas and Happiest of New Years!
