Every photographer knows that Black Friday / Cyber Monday is the time when they will be bombarded with deals and discounts on gear and services. But does the 'savings' really live up to the hype?  I reached out to some of my friends in the photography world, as well as to you, the listeners, and Reddit for feedback on what are the worst things to spend money on for Black Friday and Cyber Monday or what they most regret purchasing. What were the answers? Well, there were some surprisingly common threads. You will have to listen to find out. No spoilers in the episode notes. Thanks to My Contributors Special thanks to Steven Van Elk from the Wedding Photo Hangover Podcast, Melissa Johnstone from Filters Removed and Another Photographer Podcast, as well as Leighton DaCosta, Leandro Da Silva, and Devon Rowland for their input on this subject.

Nerd Quests: X-Men

Nerd Quests: X-Men

2022-11-1001:20:40

Why do I love the characters and stories of the X-Men so much? When I collected comics in my youth, I amassed a nearly 200 issues straight run of the Uncanny X-Men which included some of the most iconic storylines in Marvel Comics history, as well as numerous X-Men adjacent titles. Something about these characters and the themes of being an outsider, accepting those who are different from us, and battling your own inner demons really spoke to me. So, I sat down with Mike and Jessika from the Ten Cent Takes podcast to talk about the stories, characters, and themes from this X-Men run as well as the artists who created them.

089 - Decision Fatigue

2022-10-2701:35:47

It can be very difficult running your own business. You have to make a lot of the important decisions. And if you're a solo-preneur photographer, you can very well find yourself making ALL of the decisions. Decisions about marketing, social media, budgeting, as well as all of the client interactions. Throw in a worldwide pandemic, and it's not hard to find yourself suffering from decision fatigue. On this episode of the podcast, I talk with Raymond Hatfield from the Beginner Photography Podcast about having trouble making decisions or next steps in your photo business, finding yourself in a rut and how to get out of it.

Nerd Quests: Sean Connery

Nerd Quests: Sean Connery

2022-10-0601:15:34

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of James Bond, I decided to go on a journey of nerdy self exploration with Agents Scott and Cam from the Spy Hards Podcast and discuss my appreciation for the OG Bond, Sean Connery. My connection to Connery started at an early age as my mother loved his work. I quickly learned that mastering my imitation of the famous Scotsman was a great way to entertain her. Connery's career post-Bond had its ups and downs. While I love Highlander, Hunt for Red October, The Rock, and other entries in Connery's filmography, there are some flops in there as well. He also made some curious decisions to turn down roles in The Matrix and Lord of the Rings films that became massive blockbusters. In this episode, we delve into Connery's career both Bond and post-Bond and I gain a greater understanding of both my appreciation of his work and why he made some of the choices he did.

Over the last few years it has become more and more important for photographers to be "content creators" in addition to taking still images. You are probably thinking, "Haven't we always been creating content because we are taking pictures?" What I am talking about is photographers as content creators in the sense of having to put together behind the scenes videos or funny reels or TikToks just to get noticed online these days. I can post a still image shot and it will barely reach 10% of my followers on any platform. When I post a video or reel, the analytics are off the charts. If you're trying to reach new people or even just the people who already follow you, you have to be more of a content creator than just a still photographer. About My Guest Jared Poirier is a Lifestyle & Real Estate Photographer based in Toronto, Canada. On his weekly podcast Photography Friends, he and his special guests provide tips & stories from their photography careers.

Have you noticed that more and more photographers are taking advantage of their peers these days? From desperately shilling their own products to trying to get other photographers to sign over their images for commercial use, this type of behavior has become more and more prevalent. In this episode, I talk with Steven Van Elk from the Wedding Photo Hangover Podcast about this unsettling trend. About My Guest Steven Van Elk is a wedding photographer and one half of the Wedding Photo Hangover Podcast. “The Wedding Photo Hangover is the finest in phototainment. We are an irreverent look at photography. The podcast and blog are designed to give photographers a place to decompress and laugh at the horrors of running their own small businesses before the stress wholly crushes them. We also have a corresponding Facebook group for photographers to find support, share funny stories, and get help from other photographers.” Episode Promos: Siteground Web Hosting - https://nerdyphotographer.com/recommends/siteground Audible 30 Day Trial - https://nerdyphotographer.com/recommends/audible Get Social With Us!

What do you think of when you hear the words "luxury wedding photography"? I am pretty sure that what most photographers hear is "MORE MONEY!" However, there is a lot more that goes into being a part of the 'luxury market'. On this episode of the Nerdy Photographer Podcast, I sit down with award winning luxury wedding photographer, Leandro Da Silva to discuss what it really means to be in the luxury wedding business, as well as finding your own personal style and how your branding needs to fit the business you are trying to attract.

I was recently watching a video about the lack of originality among artists on social media. Well, the fault lies partially with us but mostly with social media algorithms that feed us people who are great at marketing themselves instead of people who are very good at their art. I frequently see what I would refer to as mediocre art in lots of genres with hundreds of thousands, if not more, views because whoever is running the account knows how to market themselves. Or aggregator accounts that just post 'best of' pieces from a variety of artists. We have stopped allowing people to fail at their art. And while failure is not something I would encourage when you are applying your art commercially (e.g. when someone is paying you), it is important to your growth as an artist. Unfortunately, it seems like too many 'artists' are chasing followers and likes to take the risks that would help them discover their own unique voice. Get Social With Us!

It can be very difficult for creative minded people like photographers to get their brains in "business mode." Folks like us are just used to thinking creatively.  So, when we need to create a brand strategy that differentiates us from the rest of the creatives out there so that our business can thrive, we may find ourselves unsure of what to do. Where do you even get started? Well, that's what this episode is about! Sit back and listen AND BE READY TO TAKE SOME NOTES. There is some homework at the end of this episode.

Only When I Dream Fine Art Photography Exhibition Only When I Dream is a group exhibition curated by Beth Taubner and Andrew Coningsby. The exhibition is comprised of fine art photographs, original illustrations and one video and sound installation, all of which resonate with the exhibition topic. Artists exhibiting include renowned fine art photographers Morag Patterson, Ted Leeming, Claire Rosen, Gina Glover, multi-media artist Carol Sharp along with esteemed illustrators Sam Falconer and Martin O’Neill. Only When I Dream will stimulate the viewer as we ask them to go on a multiplicity of journeys with us. The Celtic, poet, theologian, and philosopher John O’Donohue spoke about “the invisible world” that is constantly intertwining what we are able to know, and see. This exhibition is about memories and dreams, real or fabricated. Dreaming can be moments that crystallize yearnings, ethereal and romantic. They can be stories that we conjure tied to memories from the past, or the imagined past, therefore nostalgic and informed by memory or longings. We might experience highly sensory and visual waking or sleeping dreams where the mind and imagination travel to distant lands, or just next door. Our dreams might conjure untamed places in the physical world we have been to and long to experience again. O’Donohue said that a dream is a sophisticated, imaginative text full of figures and drama that we send to ourselves. These concepts are explored through the multi-dimensional language and visual landscape of Only When I Dream. Only When I Dream will be on display at the Coningsby Gallery from August 30th until September 10th of 2022 from 9:30 AM - 6:00 PM. The gallery will be closed on September 4th. More information can be found at the gallery website - https://www.coningsbygallery.com/

I've always been fascinated by toys and collecting. My comic book collection, my growing Funko collection, but, most of all, I had a huge collection of action figures. Setting up the figures to tell stories was so engrossing. It's strange that I haven't gotten into toy photography, right? Well, it has interested me but I've never fully committed.
