Look Beyond Photography: Episode 41 “Learning to Say “No””

Seems counterintuitive, but one of the hardest lessons we learn in business is when to say “no”. When we start out, we’re convinced that we need to take every job or assignment that anyone is willing to throw at us.  Seniors?  Yep.  Weddings?  Yep.  Families?  Yep.  Sports teams?  Yep.  Cars?  Yep.  Pets?  You betcha!  I […]

Look Beyond Photography: Episode 35 “It’s Just Not Fair”

Do you ever feel like all of your hard work goes unnoticed and that others seem to get by in photography so easily?

Do you find the thought of being a full-time photographer frightening?  If so, welcome to the club!

Look Beyond Photography: Episode 33 “Uncertain Times”

Sometimes, despite our best laid plans, we simply don’t know what the future has in store for us. There are times in our life where we’re certain of what we should be doing and see the path laid out clearly before us.  Other times however, the path is not so clear.  I’ve found the latter […]

Look Beyond Photography: Episode 32 “Born. Exist. Die.”

Most of our lives can be summed up in this…”we’re born, we exist, we die.”  Two of these are out of our control…but it’s that bit in the middle where we have some wiggle room. January is a time where we contemplate new goals and plans for the year.  If we’re serious, we resolve within […]

Look Beyond Photography: Episode 26 “You Couldn’t Be More Wrong”

Do you know what your definition of success is?  I’ll bet dollars to donuts that you are quite possibly, completely wrong!

Look Beyond Photography: Episode 19 “What to Do When You Don’t Know What to Do”

Sometimes we all just feel lost and don’t know what to do next.  One thing I can say for certain…if you don’t know what to do, the worst thing you can do, is to do nothing! The photography industry can often be a cryptic and confusing place to call home.  There are a thousand different […]

Look Beyond Photography: Episode 15 “Don’t Get Me Started”

You wanna know what I hate about the photography business?  Ugh, don’t get me started! How often do you feel like this?  Most of us have that one button that gets pressed, and when it does it ruins the rest of our day.  Maybe for some it’s something to do with bookkeeping, or others in […]

Look Beyond Photography: Episode 13 “It’s Not What You Know…”

It’s not what you know, it’s who you know! We’ve all heard that phrase a lot, but I wonder how often we stop to really think about that?  It’s probably most heard in the corporate world when we think of making the right “connections” to get ahead.  I’ve witnessed it first hand…we all have at […]
