    TPX26: Scott & Erick – no more third party platforms to sell your photography

    TPX26: Scott & Erick – no more third party platforms to sell your photography

    Erick Danzer and Scott Wyden Kivowitz of www.imagely.com are two of the guys behind a new automated lab fulfilment for photographers with WordPress websites.

    I asked both guys onto the podcast after reading about what could be a game-changing service for photographers who want to sell directly from their WordPress websites.

    My first thought was – is this the end of services like Pixieset, Pic-time and Shoot-proof?

    Erick Danzer is the man behind-the-scenes at Imagely. His focus is on ensuring Imagely gives back to the photography community through the Imagely Fund and other initiatives.

    Scott Wyden Kivowitz who was interviewed for episode 274 of the PhotoBizX Podcast and is the Chief Community Officer at Imagely, a father, blogger, photographer and educator. He's the author of multiple photography books, and often educates photographers about WordPress via blogging and YouTube.

    If the idea of doing away with a third-party print and file selling solution like Pic-Time, Smugmug, Photoshelter, Zenfolio, Shootproof, Cloudspot or Pixiset sounds attractive… it'll be worth listening to what Erick and Scott have to share.



    Here’s some of what we cover:

    Without product excellence, you don't get off the ground. – Erick Danzer





    If you want to succeed, you really need just two things. You need product excellence or service excellence… then you need good marketing. – Erick Danzer

    TPX25: Angie Connell – Creative photography is alive and well

    TPX25: Angie Connell – Creative photography is alive and well

    Angie Connell of www.angieconnellphotography.com.au is arguably the most creative photographer I've interviewed for the podcast.

    It's rare in the world of photography today to see something unique or to see a photographer creating something different from the norm.

    In a social media run world where we are over saturated by imagery, it feels like an impossible task to be different, to find your specialty and stand out from the crowd.

    At the same time, we're told to find what moves us as a person, as a photographer, an artist and focus on that. And if we do, if we let our unique voice come to the surface and shine through in our work, we will find we have no competition.

    We're told, do this and we'll connect with our perfect clients who will be drawn to our vision and life as a successful creator will be assured.

    The problem is… finding and recognising that unique voice and translating it to our work is tough.

    Today's guest has done exactly this.

    I've always tried to produce work that speaks to me and speaks to the subject and sort of infuse my humour in it. – Angie Connell

    Her photography is unique, it's captivating, thought-provoking, inspiring, funny, quirky and just damn good.

    She shoots conceptual pet photography for the quirky pet lovers in this world.

    She's becoming more and more recognised within the industry by her peers and I have a feeling, she will become known around the world if she continues to produce the work she has been.

    I'm talking about Angie Connell and I'm rapt to have her with us now.

    Angie, welcome!

    A big thanks to The Image Salon for sponsoring this episode of the podcast and making the show possible. If outsourcing your editing is something you're currently doing or considering, please put the guys at The Image Salon to the test… I think you'll be blown away! They service some of the biggest names in the industry including Fer Juaristi, Two Mann Studios, Gabe McClintock and Edwina Robertson to name a few.

    Following this interview, I’d love to read your feedback and comments. Was there something from this interview that struck a chord, inspired or motivated you?

    Will you take any kind of action after hearing what Angie had to share?

    I have to always remind myself that sometimes my failures are not what other people would consider failures. – Angie Connell

    Let me know by leaving your thoughts in the comments below.

    If you have any questions that I missed, a specific question you’d like to ask Angie or if you just want to say thanks for coming on the show, feel free to add them below too.





    My personal work is more for me to try new things out and whether it succeeds or fails is always something to be seen. – Angie Connell







    I struggle with perfectionism in my images a lot like I spend so much time working on an image that you'd become obsessed with the little details when the bigger picture is very much there. – Angie Connell





    If you can't get what you want, then you have to work around that and sort of adjust the concept a little bit. – Angie Connell

    Audio Diary 7 – Glasgow Wedding and Portrait Photographer Lawrence Scott

    Audio Diary 7 – Glasgow Wedding and Portrait Photographer Lawrence Scott

    Lawrence Scott of www.lspix.co.uk agreed to record this interview while driving from Glasgow to Edinburgh to go see the Castle and catch up with a bunch of Scotish photographers in one of their most beautiful cities. On the drive, it was difficult to talk business with so many stories from Lawrence about his early days as a crime photographer – some of which you'll hear in this episode.

    We did get around to some photography business, life as a photographer based in Scotland, family, bookings, sales and more. I hope you enjoy the conversation/interview as much as I did when recording it.

    Audio Diary 6 – Peterborough Portrait and Wedding Photographer Dan Waters

    Audio Diary 6 – Peterborough Portrait and Wedding Photographer Dan Waters

    Dan Waters of www.danwaterscreative.com and www.getprophotoclub.com agreed to record this interview while driving fr0m Peterborough to Cambridge for me to play tourist for a day and for Dan to reminisce and play tour guide to the university town he grew up in. Once we got past the topic of Bobby, his incredibly loved dog who lives a life better than most children, we moved on to business and life as a photographer in Peterborough.

    In the conversation, Dan shares his ideals on time management, living a life worth living and how he's been able to achieve such a wonderful balance by not being a slave to the clock and curating his business to fit around his life.

    Interestingly, Dan was super shy as a youngster and has overcome that – not that you'd ever know listening to him today. Hearing this, it became a topic I focused on, along with wedding and portrait photography business, networking, the laughing club, his man-kind project and what it's like to be the world's most helpful photographer.

    Audio Diary 5 – London Documentary Wedding Photographer Mark Seymour

    Audio Diary 5 – London Documentary Wedding Photographer Mark Seymour

    Mark Seymour of www.markseymourphotography.co.uk hosted an industry dinner that coincided with my time in London and I was lucky enough to be invited along. There were photographers, high-end function coordinators, a photography business coach, an album company representative, a wedding marketing startup sales person and an incredible meal hosted by Mark and Karen at their lovely home.

    The idea of these dinners/get-togethers (this is the second time Mark has hosted a dinner like this) is to network, make friends and meet other professionals from within the industry on a more personal and relaxed level than something like a conference or workshop. And what a success it was!

    In this candid interview, recorded the morning after the dinner while walking through Mark's home, admiring his collection of photography, which includes an original Henri Cartier Bresson, and his library of photography books, Mark opens up and shares his thoughts on wedding and street photography, workshops, the dinner, making it as a photographer in today's market, collecting photography, the learning curve and so much more.

    I hope you get as much from this interview as I did in recording it. My other hope is you come away from this episode with ideas of your own to meet and mingle with other professionals in your area and see what these relaxed gatherings can do to enhance both your life, knowledge, business and love of photography and what you do.

    Audio Diary 4 – London Street and Wedding Photographer Darren Lehane

    Audio Diary 4 – London Street and Wedding Photographer Darren Lehane

    Darren Lehane of www.lehane.photo has some pretty strong feelings on what is and what isn't street photography. It's the same with gear, especially new photography gear and the clamour for photographers to get hold of it to make them a better photographer or somehow improve their photography business.

    After spending a few days with Darren while visiting the UK, it was very cool to hear his thoughts on all things photography – from street, weddings, personal projects, books, the masters and skills of today's photographers. Not only were the conversations engaging and fun, it was very cool to hear how another photographer thinks about the craft.

    In this conversation, recorded on a train trip to Brighton to meet up with a few other photographers, I did my best to draw Darren out on some of the topics we'd discussed over cooked breakfasts at Mazzi's cafe, shooting some street photography in central London or over a cup of tea while chatting on the lounge in his London flat.

    I hope you get as much from this interview as I did with spending the time I did with Darren in London. You'll find examples of his street photography and links to more of his work below.
