My buddy TJ is at CES yet again.  He’s lucky enough to head out to Vegas several times every year for work.  He has worked on a lot of cool projects with American Express’ Open Forum to produce great content for small businesses.  Check out some good articles on marketing and social media as Open Forum covers CES.

Price Your Photography Services

I’ve spent a long time… “refining” my photography skills and invested a lot into the hobby.  I only lack the discipline to share the products of my experiments and experience.  I hope to get better at that in the near future.

As I’d love to earn a living working on creative projects, such as photography, here’s a post to help you set your prices when doing freelance photography:
