What's Your Price?
As a new photographer often times I find it hard to come up with good pricing. I want to get jobs to build a reputation and portfolio. On the other hand, I don’t want to become ‘the cheap photographer’. While a google search may give you some interesting results, here are two websites I have used to give me a good estimate on pricing. John Harrington pricing for portrait, event, editorial...
I Saw Horses Stampeding Down My Road
One of my greatest web t.v. finds has been TED.com. It’s a must visit in my book. On TED.com I found videos of Seth Godin. Seth Godin has written 12 best sellers mainly over marketing. I find his ideas to be quite genius. You can check out his blog here. Two ideas stuck out to me while watching his TED talks. One is to be remarkable. First, we must redefine remarkable as having the quality to...

Why Stay with Facebook?
Facebook is right now the premiere social networking site, but should you be on it? If you are greatly concerned about you privacy, probably not.

I'm Not at Starbucks with Facebook

Recently I was talking with my mother about Facebook and how her friends who are teachers are having a hard time with how to handle their students wanting to add them as friends.
