Four weeks ago, working together with SproutingPhotographer, we launched a new concept called "Weekend Wisdom". With each podcast we want to give you as much helpful information as you need on very specific topics.
Don Komarechka on publishing your own book was first and Sandy Puc on defining success was second. With this third podcast we're discussing marketing, hitting one concept particularly hard, partnerships.
Just click on the banner above and you'll have access to both the podcast and the show notes on Sprouting Photographer.
One last comment that's more in line with my usual Sunday Morning Reflections...
Weekend Wisdom is all thanks to two incredibly creative educators and content providers, not to mention great photographers and friends, Bryan Caporicci and Rob Nowell. I've only known them for a relatively short time, but I find it hard to remember when they weren't in my life!
This particular podcast has a lot of great marketing content, all thanks to my good buddy, Doug Box. I've written a lot about the importance of friendships in this industry over the years..."The best thing about our industry has nothing to do with photography, but the friendships that come out of everyone's mutual love for the craft."
Nobody could appreciate a friendship more than I do knowing Doug. We've been friends for close to twenty-five years and while we don't get to talk that often, we both know we can count on each other for help with anything that comes along at any time. In fact, I found a great quote that defines my friendship with Doug. If either of us were to call the other and say, "I need some help on something," the response would simply be, "What do you need?"
"I value the friend who for me finds time on his calendar,
but I cherish the friend who for me does not consult his calendar."
Cherish the friends you make along your journey, because, without those good friends, all the hard work you're doing to build your brand, reputation and skill set will be meaningless.
Make it a great day. Thanks for all your support and as always, don't forget to hug somebody important to you!
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.
