Alas, print quality is but a small portion of operating a photography business. Salesmanship determines profit. The photographer who tought me, always said, if you cant dazzel them with brilliance, baffle them with bull s@$t. As an artist, I am never completely satisfied. That is what keeps us competitive. The day I find myself happy with what I have produced, I'll put my camera away. Untill then, shoot what you love and you'll do well with what you shoot.


So true. Salesmanship is so important. You can be the best photographer around but if you can't sell everything is lost.

I was unable to pull up your website. I wanted to check it out. Not sure why I couldn't get into it.

I do not know why the link will not work. If you type it in manualy it will come up. You can find me on Googel as well.

The biggest difference between professional and amateur is the amateur does it when inspiration/opportunity strikes. A pro does it every day, all day long. He/she creates inspiration/opportunity regardless of conditions.

In the meantime, as others have suggested, study. Read, look at pictures, create pictures. Always, and always, obey the rule of thirds unless, of course, you choose not to. By-the-way, there is no end to the learning process.

Love your web site. Nice cemetery photos. I also love the shoes on the sand shot.

kinda hard to see the pictures on pensacolas website with the big "copyright" stuck across the middle of each picture, maybe a less intrusive watermark in one corner of the pics?..just my opinion

Then it would be too easy to PS out.

I see lots of sites where the watermark isn't intrusive but each to his own I reckon
