I recently sold one of my old camera lenses on Craigslist. I shot this like I would any other product, and the images really helped seal the deal. The lens sold three days after I posted these images.Read More
Friends, I just wanted to take a moment to talk about how pleased I am using the Square Card Reader. It has made sales a whole lot faster and easier. Earlier this year I bought my first smart phone specifically so I could start taking credit card payments at the school and when I was out painting, using my phone.
What I didn’t realize was that I would also be able to set up an online register and also take orders over the phone. The service is quick, the payments are deposited directly into my bank account within 1-3 days, usually the next day. That saves so much time.
The fees are about what I was paying on Paypal, but the interface is so much faster, and I don’t have to set up a special web page for a given item. When a student or patron makes a purchase, I can swipe their card, allow them to use a stylus to sign the screen, and then they can enter their email address to get a receipt emailed to them. I can also set up invoices and my register is now set up with all the things I usually sell. Just click on the item to add it to the cart. The records Square offers also make it easier to track sales.
Square is now offering a special deal for those who sign up, if you use this link: http://squareup.com/i/C77CC571 you will get $1000 of sales processed without fees. (That’s a savings of more than $27).Read More
There was a painting event this weekend. It seems I won an award.Read More
This Sunday I was contracted by Gameface Media to shoot pre- and post-race photos at the Tough Mudder Event in Plymouth, Wisconsin. Of all the mud races, this one tends to attract the more serious participants. Sundays are typically slower than Saturdays when you have a two day event. That being said I was shooting for about 7 and a half hours. The photos I was taking required being on my feet the whole time, crouching, squatting or kneeling repeatedly to get a good angle. I felt that in the days after.Read More
This is my camera. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
My camera is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
My camera, without me, is useless. Without my camera, I am useless. I must shoot my camera true. I must shoot more creatively than my competition who is trying to outbid me. I must out shoot him before he out shoots me. I will…
My camera and I know that what counts in photography is not the number of shots we take, the speed of our burst, nor the gear we buy. We know that it is the quality that counts. We will nail it…
My camera is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its sights and its lenses. I will keep my camera clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will shoot…
My camera and I will surpass limitations that stop other photographers. When we are exhausted, hungry, tired, busy, we will shoot…Read More
Some product photography for Quest Graphics in Waukesha, Wisconsin. Some of the images will be taken into photoshop to create product samples using digital artwork. Once the label has been “wrapped” around each can, I will create an arrangement of products to demonstrate the types of products this company is capable of producing for their customers.Read More
