The next time you get a marketing idea that everyone tells you is just friggn’ nuts, I say go for it. Look at what Honda did! Live…one take…

Difficult is worth doing, indeed!

 

Creative doldrums?

Monday, June 2nd, 2008

HOW magazine has an article online with some ideas how to knock some of the dust off your creative brain. While they are geared not specifically for photographers, there is no reason you can’t try them. Maybe you’ll think up some creative games of your own! Please feel free to share them in the comments.

Wanna feel happier?

With things slowing down in so many sectors, including many of our own, it’s pretty easy to feel down. Here’s a great piece of academic research to help you feel better (from the Harvard Biz School). The crux of it is to spend money…on someone else. So, rather than buying yourself a new whatever, why not give that money to a homeless shelter or food bank or the like? 

I love this idea. We get so wrapped up in ourselves, in the getting and earning and making, that we forget that wonderful feeling we get when we just simply give.

Sell your art

Monday, June 2nd, 2008

All photography has the potential to sell as fine art, in my opinion. So, when looking for ways to diversify, why not consider selling prints of your work? Maybe consider listing your work on Etsy, for example. One note, remember that if you limit the number of prints available and sign/number them, you can try to get a hogher price for the prints. It’s just like exclusivity. :-)
