Quick tip for the day

Today is a day and it's just like any other day.  Except...... Today you are going to make a positive difference or at least try to make a positive difference in your photography career.

I'm talking marketing here, and marketing in it's simplest form: E-mail.  Send a company or person that you are interested in working with a nice and personal e-mail.  That's it.  Don't let your fear of rejection run your life.  If you want a photo published in Pop Photo magazine, go ahead and contact them about it.  If you want a new client, reach out to one and let them know who you are and why your so good at what you do.

The main thing your doing here is opening a line of communication.  It's the first step to any great working relationship.  Take the step and never look back.  Commit and jump-start your future today.

Why today?  Because you know that if you put it off until tomorrow it's just not going to happen.  Don't let fear or laziness run your life.

I designed a game called Rejection Therapy back in 2009 to encourage myself to get out of my comfort zone more. It was amazingly effective and enlightening (for as long as I did it).

If anyone wants to try it, it's here:
