    So if you had to start over, how would you do it? Business model make-over.

    Well that's just it, I did have a business plan, and when we started we said we would rely on FB and other social media marketing. I am looking to expand beyond that and I don't know where a good advertising investment would be. In regards to the website, a professional design is out of my...

    So if you had to start over, how would you do it? Business model make-over.

    So we set up shop in April of this year. After playing with various business models, here is the basic one that we have set up with. Equipment invested in (everyone's gotta start somewhere) was a canon 550D, to replace our old SLR, a Tamron 70-200 2.8, 28-75 2.8, and a Tokina 12-24 F4 We also...

    Should I trade 2 for 1?

    The prime route is where I am eventually going to go, however for now, while I lack the funds to purchase the desired focal lengths I need that versatility.

    Should I trade 2 for 1?

    That's the thing. I shoot mostly portrait work, with the occasional event thrown in, but I do see the benefit to the 70-200 on a FF sensor. Decisions, decisions.

    Should I trade 2 for 1?

    I currently own a Tamron 28-75 2.8, along with a 70-200 F 2.8. I am considering selling both and dropping a few hundred on a 24-70L. I currently shoot with a 550D My 28-75 is incredibly soft at 2.8, but sharpens up at F4. Kind of annoying, the build quality is amazingly cheap as well. My...

    Making a name for yourself and having a business "name"

    <---------is now Michael Anthony Photography. Do not do the partner thing. Financially, it does not make sense. You will be the talent and eventually, if the biz goes well, you can hire someone to do the clerical work.

    Website CC

    I liked your portfolio. I disagree about flash, when done right, it looks ok. I have music on my site, but I go back and forth with that. The consensus is that people are not going to stay on your page or leave it because of music. They will stay or leave based on content. The page is clean...

    Copyright law question

    So here we go. I entered into a general partnership with a friend. He did not fill his obligation to the contract financially by the date set and the partnership agreement was null and void. He is trying to start a photography business of his own, and he screen captured images from my smugmug...

    Student Portrait workflow

    So I got contracted by a school to photograph an 8th grade graduating class. I am estimating approximately 300 students or so. I am working with lightroom, cs5, and smugmug for proofing, does anyone have ideas for workflow?

    Promotion question

    To the vets out there who remember the good ol' starting out days, We are running a promotion to get people in the door with a local publication, it is basically $29.00 for a half hour shoot with a free 11X14. No digital files included. Obviously the point is to make up the loss leader with...

    Advice on a Lens? Canon Rebel T2i

    I bought that package, and I wish that I would have saved the money on the lens combo. My advice is to buy the body, a 1.8 50mm and a tamron or sigma zoom

    How is my sking softening? (Hot girl inside)

    Looks like frequency separation if I am not mistaken. I like that technique most of the time. I think here she MAY have benefited from a little less texture on the skin Looks good though
