Episode 116 – There Are No Magic Bullets, The Photo System Reviewed, Listener Questions!

photography podcast

Okay, let me start by saying that we have no interest in attacking anyone’s character or bashing anyone personally. This is our best attempt at an objective, educational review of David Jay’s new “Photo System”. David Jay, among others, has been catching a lot of flack in our industry as of late. It seems like the masses are finally starting to question wether or not the people offering workshops and learning tools are qualified to do so. Listen as we walk through the “10 easy steps” in the system and discuss.

In this episode we also answer some great questions from listeners, Phil insults all of England and Jamie professes his love for smoothies.

In this weeks episode we interview Jared Bauman, co-founder of Shoot dot Edit. We also discuss the newly announced Canon 1DX and kick off a new 3 part series on Going Pro. After that we chat about how to set the stage for your client meetings.

If you are looking to go pro or you have recently made the jump we hope you will check out our new Going Pro Series. We start things off in this episode with Part 1: Branding.  Next week we’ll talk about Business Basics like accounting, licenses and studio management. We hope that even the seasoned pro’s will appreciate this discussion, it’s always good to review the fundamentals and ask yourself if any of these areas need attention in your business!
