The guy that made me rethink the way I shoot

If you haven't checked out Doug Gordon yet I strongly encourage that you do so. I got a free invite to one of his seminars from Albums Inc and I never shot weddings (or portraits) quite the same afterward.

I bought one of his DVD's and a proof set at the seminar. I would strongly recommend the proof set though I don't see it on his site. If you are interested in the proof set you may want to contact Albums Inc.

If there are any gurus that have helped you develop as a pro please share them in the comments section. Thanks!

It's good to be a creative pro in Cleveland!


Well there's been a bit of a lag since I started this thing but I guess better late than never eh?

For those of you in the Cleveland area (like myself) COSE (The Council of Smaller Enterprises) is starting a network specifically for creative professionals. I am a COSE member and have participated in various programs that have targeted artists and they have all been great. I have to give an organization like COSE their props for addressing a need in our community. So many business groups focus on areas of finance, technology or manufacturing which is great but us artists can feel a little left out. Creative professionals have different needs, which this network is striving to help meet.

COSE will be hosting a kickoff event at Spaces Gallery April 27th, (tomorrow) form 6:00 - 8:00 PM. It's a freebie and a great opportunity to network with likeminded entrepreneurs. Hope you can make it!
