We’ve gotten tons of messages from people saying that there’s no way some of the concepts and tips we’ve given here, could be useful in their business because “I do fine when I do mini sessions for $45 and include the disc. I get em in and I get em out and I’m making money.” Or, “I don’t need to read any books or do any learning. My business is fine.”
The beta of Photoshop CS6 is officially ready for download and we can’t wait to dive into it and learn all of the beautiful new features. But what exactly are these new features? How do we even find them in the program? Overhwelmed? We were too until we found this.

While at WPPI this year, we had the opportunity to hear Blake Discher speak. He started with a warning. “This will probably be the MOST DRY presentation you’ll take in at WPPI but thanks for sticking it out.”
Well over the next 90 minutes, we had nothing thrown at us but pure gold! From networking, finding new clients, retaining existing clients, SEO, and many other topics from a photographer that is from Detroit. Blake told how hard hit Detroit was in the economic crash. But he also gave us strategies to counter the challenges.
Studio Moirae is comprised of the team of Jasen Arias and Christy Shipp, with Nick Harper as an associate photographer. They are a Phoenix, AZ based company offering wedding, family, and event photography.

It’s a concept that many of us struggle with and we hope that their insight helps you to consider many of the factors involved.
