It’s a great question from Margaret. She posts:[Read more…]
If you’re not one to grab the ball and run down the field, it’s likely any amount of coaching will help.
Why? Unless you have an unrelenting drive and desire for success, it won’t help.[Read more…]
I like being scared. I like scaring others. In our family gatherings we have an annual “spooky walk” that I’ve been organizing for decades, since I was kid. Spooky walks were always a thing with me.[Read more…]
This happened. There’s a pizza place beside our studio. The guy who established it worked hard. He knew what he was doing.[Read more…]
Last Thursday we hosted our first presentation with Warne Noyce.
I was shocked.
Here’s why. First off, I’ve had Warne speak at two live events in the past and had him run at least four webinars.
His information and presentation skills are off the charts.
Not to mention his passion, and marketing savvy.
But what shocked me last night was the content in his presentation. He shared his strategies in working with local charities as business building for his photography studio.
And it was like I never heard it before. All new. Maybe I have ADHD or something, (I’m sure I do….) but for some reason his content was new and invigorating.
Or maybe he’s always held back. Until now.
Anywho, he had so much information we ran out of time.
Warne has agreed to run a PART B and focus on branding
the photography business.

In the Fuzzy Duenkel FB group called Heavy Light, John Hartman posted some images from his recent project with his local symphony.
I was stunned at the fact that he turned this into a profit and created some of the coolest portraits I have ever seen.
So, I asked him if he’d run a webinar on this amazing idea and his experiences. And he agreed so we set the date:
He says: “In 1988 I had the chance to photograph the principal players in our local symphony. This idea, of course, wasn’t new—I got the idea from Bill McIntosh, who had done it decades before me (and in a far masterful way, I might add). “
“Besides being paid for this project (about $25k) I’ve had tens of thousands of dollars in spinoff business directly from this exhibit, which has been a permanent installation in the theater for the past seven years. Additionally, it was just plain fun to do…..”
I can be such a dick at times. I can’t help it. I mean well, but stuff comes out of my mouth and before I can edit….boom! Too late. I said it. It’s out there in the universe.
I’m going straight to hell.[Read more…]
When I was single, I partied hard, drank too much and was for the most part dangerous, undisciplined and impulsive. I blamed it on being a “creative type.”
After getting married, sobering up and having a family, everything came together for the better. Much better.
But deep down, I knew:[Read more…]
