I was on the Photofocus Podcast Beyond Technique. A podcast empowering photographers to bring their business to the next level, with my buddy Skip Cohen and Chimera Young this week. These were some of the topics we covered in a little over 30 minutes. You can listen below.
How being diverse in your photography skillset can be a strong asset, and how it can actually enrich your work. The multiple types of photography that go into a single wedding gig. The important role that networking plays in the success of your photography busines. The role that constant education plays in the development of every photographer. How business and marketing skills are instrumental in a successful photography business.

I was interviewed about participation in imaging competition in a Podcast put together by Mark Oehler called The Twelve Elements. We chat about my imaging submissions from last year where I was fortunate to have five of my eight image entries be added to the PPA Loan Collection and the rest made it to the Merit category.
The next International Imaging Competition from Professional Photographers of America is coming up very shortly. Get your image entries ready. More PPA Competition information can be found here on the PPA web site.
I feel that participating in competition has helped to make me the photographer I am today.Even though I have my Master and Artist degrees from PPA I still entered again…
What are you doing to push yourself to make better images?
Talking with Mike Tabback on KAZM Radio on the Tech Talk Show. We chat about some techniques in photography and some of the new tech that Panasonic is putting into the cameras. 4K Photo Mode is making some new image captures possible that would have been more difficult to photograph than even a few years ago.
