101 - Creating a marketing system to help you show, share, or sell your photos

Several months ago, I got a call from a potential client. She worked in the marketing department of a camera manufacturer and wanted help creating a marketing plan for them. We talked about a coaching program that would help her conduct the market research for her plan. "Have you done this kind of thing before," she asked? Of course. I gave her some highlights of my resume and pointed her to some links. One of the links was to the work we have done together on Shutterbug Life. On her next call to me, she was so excited. "I looked at your work, and you seem perfect for this!" I had another situation with a big camera retailer. They were struggling to create an educational program for their customers. After a reviewing some of my ideas and links, they invited me in to talk about how I could help them. They were excited to get started, they said. You all know how this one ends. I saw that Canon was looking for someone to lead their workshop and learning program. Canon must already know...

100 - How to sell your images online

Sitting on the floor in a room full of pictures, I let out a heavy sigh and began the tedious job of sorting the image packages into envelopes. My Dad and I had just picked up the prints from a high school prom shoot we completed, and now we had to prepare them for our clients. There was no simple way of doing this. Fill each envelope, cross reference it against the names, and make sure they had paid. Then Dad would deliver the photos to the parents. I wish we had today's solutions back then. Today, I've completed much more complex jobs without ever touching a print or wading through envelopes. How? The technical part of selling your photography has never been easier than it is these days. You have a range of solutions to help you promote, sell, and collect for your images. None of them require any technical knowledge or ability.

099 - Take the shot. Don't take the shot. Today

I've got some more advice for you that doesn't have anything to do with f-stops or apertures. I'm not weighing in on DSLRs vs mirrorless or Canon vs Nikon. Today we are ignoring all the typical photography topics yet sharing some timeless advice. Here are three decision points that all photographers face. If we can choose right at each intersection, I think we can improve our work considerably.

Why you should show your prices on your photography website

Several years ago, I followed up on what I thought was a great lead for my photography business. I crafted a warm introductory email and requested that we schedule a phone conversation. Then came the response that totally deflated me. "Just send your prices." Like many photographers, that was the very last thing I wanted to do. I didn't want to talk about prices before I had an opportunity to have a conversation. I didn't want to quote a price before I had a chance to understand the full scope of their needs. After all, once he knew my prices, he could just leave. After going back and forth a few times by email, I sent some prices. As I suspected, he disappeared. The moral of the story is not what you might expect. Just show your prices on your website. Listen to the podcast

097 - How to stay motivated with your photography

He had a different reason for asking, but we were looking for the same result. "How do you keep photographers motivated to keep shooting?" asked a camera industry salesperson. "It seems photographers aren't shooting as much. "How do we address that?" This got me thinking about a problem we are all encounter. There is so much noise, so much distraction. It's tough for even the most dedicated photographers to find the motivation to keep shooting. Here are a half dozen ideas, from easy to hard. Listen to the podcast

096 - How to build your own photography website

In the Squarespace Super Bowl ad, John Malkovich is screaming into the phone at his namesake. John wants to launch a website, but the hard part is not in creating a website. It is in getting his name. You know the message coming will be this...The easy part in creating a website will be creating a website. If you are a photographer, by now you know you should have a website. The easy part in creating a website is in creating a website. The difficult part is in creating a website - that works.

095 - Which lens should I buy next?

It doesn't matter if you have been shooting for two weeks or 20 years, most photographers are constantly mulling the question, 'which lens should I buy next?' Your frustration only gets worse when you find that there seems to be an endless supply of options. Even within the same brand, you can get lost in a sea of f-stops and millimeters. Here is an approach to help you understand and simplify the lens selection process. Listen to the podcast

When do you need a model release

When do you need a model release? That's the latest question I received from one of our listeners: "What guidance can you give us regarding releases? Both for people (for instance, if they are potentially identifiable) and locations (for instance, trademarked property, federal property)? I seem to recall this gets complicated. What if it’s a crowd such as demonstrators in DC? Assuming a release is required, as a practical matter do you obtain it during the shoot?"
