Welcome to Grab Shots - Just like grab shots in photography these will be just as random. It's a series of random thoughts about the photographic industry, people in general, business and life. I'm going to keep them short and do my best to "plant a few seeds".
I wish photographers would work to own their own zip code BEFORE they decided to take on the rest of the world! Make it a point to get to know all of the businesses in your "neighborhood". They need to know you're available for any of their photographic needs. Owning your zip code means your name is the first one that comes to mind when one of your "neighbors" needs help with things under the imaging umbrella. You need to walk before you can run.
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
