Photo above by Margaret Bryan….from her webinar Dogs and the Business of Pet Photography (keep reading…) I just finished doing some spring cleaning in our online photography forum. Cleared out some non relevant stuff and dead links. And you what I discovered? holy crap…..even after cleaning shop, this place is jammed to the rafters with […]

My arm shot straight up, back of the room, way in the corner…

The first six months starting in the year 1991 were truly epic for me. Truth be told, everything has been epic since. But that first half of that year really started the ball rolling in a whole new, exciting, creative, prosperous direction. I quit drinking and smoking. Both of these activities really bothered me. Drinking […]

YOU are the Matrix


When the Matrix first came out I was blown away. This is an amazing movie. When it was first released, they was barely a buzz, not much hooplah. Bit of a sleeper before it became a mainstream popular blockbuster. The story line, the effects, everything about it made a compelling sci-fi movie. Well done. The […]

This is where the magic happens.


Friends, foes, droogs and spartans…..THIS is where the magic happens in photography. You get a group of photographers together. 3 days. Lock em up, all day. No one leaves. No one wants to leave. They’re having too much fun. And learning more than they could possibly pick up from anywhere else…. John expressed it best: […]

“I can’t understand why more people don’t get onto these amazing sessions…”

Friends, last week I had yet another mastermind call, as part of the NoBs Photo Success Membership. The theme for this call was website strategies for photographers. I had two very qualified guests on the call with me. Kyle Brady and Kerry Allen, and we basically brainstormed and chatted on the latest, greatest and coolest […]

Your Photography Sucks!

Baby crying

“Never fear shadows. They simply mean there’s a light shining somewhere nearby.” ~Ruth E.

Annie Leibovitz Reveals A Big Secret To Success In Photography


“If a day goes by without my doing something related to photography, it’s as though I’ve neglected something essential to my existence, as though I had forgotten to wake up.” ~Richard Avedon~   I just finished reading Annie’s latest book, “At Work”, and also watched the DVD documentary about her called: “Life Through a Lens” […]

“I got fired and need a photography income like yesterday!”‏


I get emails from photographers who struggle. One part timer emails me after he lost his ‘real’ job, all desperate, freaking out….“I got fired and need an online income like yesterday!”‏ And? I have the answers? I told him some simple sound advice: “Shoulda drained the swamp BEFORE you were up to your neck in alligators.” Not much sympathy coming from this end. Hey, […]

Why do rich photographers keep getting rich?

“Of course complaining is really a waste of energy like being unhappy with the weather. Time is better spent on each studio finding their own solutions and adapting to “what is” and not “what was.”…” ~Jeff Lubin~ Watch the ‘Jeff Lubin effect’ webinar replay here. One of the most powerful and information rich presentations for […]

One question my photography clients NEVER ask me…‏


I get asked a lot of questions from clients. Some are objections, some curiosity while others are for information purposes…. Often they want to know how our daughter is doing. Or where we’re traveling to this year. Or what do we take on our coffee…. Seriously….I ain’t making that up. Some bring us coffee! BUT….one […]
