You are not Bono

leave a comment »

More and more photographers, photo editors, and all sorts of experts in the field of photography are turning to public speaking as one of the platforms in reaching out. There’s something that can be said about being heard. Scott Berkun, in his blog, wants to land you a fistful of reminders if you’re someone who’s about to go on stage and mentally engage a group of people, first of which, is to tell you bluntly that you are not Bono.

Great tips!

What to do when your image is stolen online

with one comment

Rob Haggart, A Photo Editor:

Having your images stolen online is not an “if,” but a “when” will it happen type of situation that you should be prepared to take action on. If you plan to run a photography business then you should plan to hire a lawyer now and again. If you cannot hire one then you should marry one, trade photos with one or be best friends with one.

What motivates you?

Seth Godin:

The nature of our new economic system, one that doesn’t support predictable factory work, is that external motivation is far less useful. If you’re looking for a big payday, you won’t find it right away. If you’re depending on cheers and thank yous from your Twitter followers, you’re looking at a very bumpy ride.

Is he talking about photographers?

In fact, the world is more and more aligned in favor of those who find motivation inside, who would do what they do even if it wasn’t their job. As jobs turn into projects, the leaders we need are those that relish the project, that jump at the chance to push themselves harder than any coach ever could.

Once in a while, we could use a wee bit of inspiration, and motivation. Now we know where to find it.
