Just like the game show, "Millionaire" I had to phone a friend on this one. Best guess is around '92, and I think we're at PhotoEast, now PPE in New York. Hasselblad was a steady advertiser in Petersen's PHOTOgraphic at the time.
We had just announced the winner of a contest to win a Hasselblad 500 Classic, the tall gentleman in the middle. The two women in the image became two of my very best friends over the years, and we're still in touch. Jackie Augustine, on the left, was the publisher at the time and Kathy Schneider (now Kathy Jello) was the advertising director. This one brings back some great memories.
I love Throwback Thursday because it forces me to look through my files of old images and take these short trips down Memory Lane. As a photographer, you have a marketing opportunity to share old images that get "Mom" thinking about how fast the kids are growing, and her family is changing. Plus, so many of you struggle with fresh content for your blog.
So, dig out some of those old images for material. You just might be surprised at your ability to create a few sales when your point hits home with your target audience.
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.
