FREE RESOURCES FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS FROM PHOTOSHELTER

Posted in RESOURCES, UNCATEGORIZED by Nicole Gelinas on May 21, 2012

I have been scouring the web to find some really great business advise about photography and I came across one site that I thought was really worth sharing. Photoshelter is a place online where photographers can build really well designed websites for their business, but in addition to this, they also offer free guides for photographers to help grow their business. There is everything from learning about social media, selling photography, how to fund a project, marketing for photographers, tips on staying inspired, and the list continues. I have downloaded all of them now and they are really helpful and really well designed (which makes this graphic designer really happy!)

So why am I sharing this with you on a photography blog that is supposed to be about using different cameras and experimenting with film? I feel that this information is really valuable if you want to take your photography to the next level, which may be the case for some of you. If you want to take a leap from just having a photoblog to creating a portfolio website that you hope will get you a small photography show somewhere. Learning a small amount of marketing can only help you accomplish these things!

I have also signed up for a five week Photo Business Bootcamp. Here is there description of what the course is all about:

“This five week course will improve the way you generate new work and manage your career, whether you’re just getting started or ready to take your business to the next level.

Your weekly email will include up to 10 of our all time favorite interviews, video seminars, and useful articles featuring successful photographers and industry experts who know what works and what doesn’t.” 

If you are interested in learning more about this side of photography then maybe consider signing up for the free course or downloading a few of the free pdfs. Either way you are getting education for free!

 

OKTOMAT CAMERA – SIMPLICITY WILL SET YOU FREE

Posted in 35MM CAMERAS, TOY CAMERAS by Nicole Gelinas on March 10, 2012

As I said in the previous post, you never know what you are going to get with the Oktomat camera. Truth be told, I love minimalistic photos. They really have a calming effect on me and I love the mood they create. There is no real subject matter in these, so just enjoy them for what they are. Try not to think about what they could be. Just let them be. It’s so freeing.
