Although many of you haven't met Chamira Young directly, you certainly know her voice. A little over a year ago, Chamira and I started co-hosting the "Mind Your Own Business" podcast which is part of Photofocus. She's a kick to work with, and if you've listened to any of our podcasts, it's pretty obvious we have fun and thanks to so many of you get a lot of terrific feedback.
I started SCU in January 2013 with a goal to build a resource center primarily for aspiring and working professional photographers. Today there are several thousand blog posts covering marketing, business, technique and here and there, life in general. SCU keeps growing, and last week Chamira joined the SCU team to help keep up with the demand.
So, in addition to the two podcasts we produce for Photofocus and PhotoShelter you're about to start seeing her name on bylines for posts. She's a talented writer, photographer and a self-proclaimed "Tech Nerd." And, there's no doubt in my mind that as SCU continues into its sixth year, you can be sure you're going to be seeing a lot more of her, along with plenty of new relevant content.
If you haven't checked out the latest podcasts, click on either of the two below. Chamira doesn't just produce each show - her interviewing skills are terrific and with each conversation she brings out the best in all of us. She's helping to build some of the very best content in photography podcasts. And, stay tuned for a new Mind Your Own Business at the end of this week with our guest Scott Kelby!
Chamira might be new to contributing to SCU, but she's certainly no stranger to blogging and podcasts. Click on the link below to listen to her series of content-rich conversations with artists, photographers and business people all sharing two common denominators - a love for business and photography.
Great content, blogs, podcasts and educational programming don't happen without the support from some pretty remarkable companies. A BIG thanks to PhotoShelter and their never-ending focus on education and Photofocus.com for giving us an opportunity to not only do something we love, but to share it!
For years I've written about the best part of our industry having little to do with photography, but the friendships that come out of everyone's love for the craft. Well, it's a kick to be working with Chamira, and she's become a friend I hope you'll get to know better!
