    Black Friday Buyers Beware!

    Black Friday Buyers Beware!

    Every photographer knows that Black Friday / Cyber Monday is the time when they will be bombarded with deals and discounts on gear and services. But does the 'savings' really live up to the hype? 
    I reached out to some of my friends in the photography world, as well as to you, the listeners, and Reddit for feedback on what are the worst things to spend money on for Black Friday and Cyber Monday or what they most regret purchasing. What were the answers? Well, there were some surprisingly common threads. You will have to listen to find out. No spoilers in the episode notes.

    Thanks to My Contributors
    Special thanks to Steven Van Elk from the Wedding Photo Hangover Podcast, Melissa Johnstone from Filters Removed and Another Photographer Podcast, as well as Leighton DaCosta, Leandro Da Silva, and Devon Rowland for their input on this subject.

    Nerd Quests: X-Men

    Nerd Quests: X-Men

    Why do I love the characters and stories of the X-Men so much? When I collected comics in my youth, I amassed a nearly 200 issues straight run of the Uncanny X-Men which included some of the most iconic storylines in Marvel Comics history, as well as numerous X-Men adjacent titles.
    Something about these characters and the themes of being an outsider, accepting those who are different from us, and battling your own inner demons really spoke to me.
    So, I sat down with Mike and Jessika from the Ten Cent Takes podcast to talk about the stories, characters, and themes from this X-Men run as well as the artists who created them.

    Decision Fatigue

    Decision Fatigue

    It can be very difficult running your own business. You have to make a lot of the important decisions. And if you're a solo-preneur photographer, you can very well find yourself making ALL of the decisions.
    Decisions about marketing, social media, budgeting, as well as all of the client interactions. Throw in a worldwide pandemic, and it's not hard to find yourself suffering from decision fatigue.
    On this episode of the podcast, I talk with Raymond Hatfield from the Beginner Photography Podcast about having trouble making decisions or next steps in your photo business, finding yourself in a rut and how to get out of it.

    Nerd Quests: Sean Connery

    Nerd Quests: Sean Connery

    To celebrate the 60th anniversary of James Bond, I decided to go on a journey of nerdy self exploration with Agents Scott and Cam from the Spy Hards Podcast and discuss my appreciation for the OG Bond, Sean Connery.
    My connection to Connery started at an early age as my mother loved his work. I quickly learned that mastering my imitation of the famous Scotsman was a great way to entertain her.

    Connery's career post-Bond had its ups and downs. While I love Highlander, Hunt for Red October, The Rock, and other entries in Connery's filmography, there are some flops in there as well. He also made some curious decisions to turn down roles in The Matrix and Lord of the Rings films that became massive blockbusters.
    In this episode, we delve into Connery's career both Bond and post-Bond and I gain a greater understanding of both my appreciation of his work and why he made some of the choices he did.

    Photographers as Content Creators

    Photographers as Content Creators

    Over the last few years it has become more and more important for photographers to be "content creators" in addition to taking still images. You are probably thinking, "Haven't we always been creating content because we are taking pictures?"
    What I am talking about is photographers as content creators in the sense of having to put together behind the scenes videos or funny reels or TikToks just to get noticed online these days. I can post a still image shot and it will barely reach 10% of my followers on any platform.
    When I post a video or reel, the analytics are off the charts. If you're trying to reach new people or even just the people who already follow you, you have to be more of a content creator than just a still photographer.

    Photographers Taking Advantage

    Photographers Taking Advantage

    Have you noticed that more and more photographers are taking advantage of their peers these days? From desperately shilling their own products to trying to get other photographers to sign over their images for commercial use, this type of behavior has become more and more prevalent.
    In this episode, I talk with Steven Van Elk from the Wedding Photo Hangover Podcast about this unsettling trend.
    About My Guest

    Steven Van Elk is a wedding photographer and one half of the Wedding Photo Hangover Podcast.


    “The Wedding Photo Hangover is the finest in phototainment. We are an irreverent look at photography. The podcast and blog are designed to give photographers a place to decompress and laugh at the horrors of running their own small businesses before the stress wholly crushes them. We also have a corresponding Facebook group for photographers to find support, share funny stories, and get help from other photographers.”
