No matter what holiday you're celebrating this month, there are some pretty unique ideas for gifts in photography now. I thought I'd share a little information to help you through the idea process for those people in your life who seem to have everything.
Starting a New Business? How's Your Pricing?
"A business that doesn't make any profit is a hobby!"
I don't usually pitch my own material, but I'm very proud of all the helpful content presented in both of my two videos available on Lynda.com.
The first in the series is about getting started in the business of photography. The second is about pricing. Both are critical to the success in business as a professional photographer. It's not rocket science - you just need to pay attention to a few fundamental building blocks.
Having a great skill set means nothing if you get started on the wrong foot or price your products/services wrong and wind up eating macaroni and cheese every night!
Here's a unique gift for that friend or family member just getting started as a small business owner in photography.
Photodex and the "Next Big Thing"
Slideshows aren't a new idea, but the ease of shooting still images and short video clips and then combining them with great music makes the concept the "next big thing!" Photodex makes it easy for you to add another dimension to your storytelling, and create new products for your clients like thank you videos, save the date pieces, birth announcements and holiday cards, just to name a few.
And, for a limited time, there's a 20% discount for my readers. Use SAVE20WITHSKIP in the code box when you purchase any Photodex product. Just click on the banner above for more information.
