It’s A Consumer Product, Not A National Treasure

Wake Up Fellow Photo Artist – Who knows just how many cameras, camera phones and tablets with cameras are out there amongst society. And each one of those image maker owners is a photographer and really doesn’t buy “photographic art” that easily. In the gallery I am working in today for example, there are about seven photographers and five of those sell straight non manipulated photos. Well, I should say, they try to sell… but the fact is that people who have a camera all think they could take the same picture and of course they are not about to buy an image they can make themselves.

So anything that is in my life that I don’t like or areas I wish I had gone into, now is the time to change the direction and make the rest of my life what I think I would want it to be like. I have tried to begin slowing down on how much work my Agency does, while at the same time increasing my rates so that I work a little less but make as much or hopefully more. And you may ask...
