Six weeks ago, working together with SproutingPhotographer.com, we launched a new podcast series, "Weekend Wisdom with Skip Cohen". While I'd love to take credit for some great content, the wisdom is thanks to Bryan Caporicci, founder of SproutingPhotographer together with each of my guests. It was his idea and each guest has brought a new dimension to the topic of how to build different aspects of your business.
What's making each of these podcasts unique is that we're focused on just one topic and then we're drilling down as far as we can go, trying hard to stay within thirty minutes. In this newest episode, released this past Saturday, Cindy Harter Sims was my guest and talked about her five year quest to becoming a full time professional photographer after a life time of being a music teacher.
Cindy does a great job taking us through the process, but there are four points that deserve to be highlighted...
On one of the forums recently a photographer requested the word "passion" be pulled from our vocabulary. He was simply tired of hearing it. I understand it's one of those words that's abused and we all hear too often. On the other hand, look at the images above one more time. Is there a better word that describes Cindy Harter Sims' feeling about imaging?
From engagements to weddings to babies and families, Cindy is passionate about being an artist. There simply isn't a better word!
