Educating your clients

Clients

Dealing with clients can suck!!!  The biggest complaint that I hear from photographers is that they get tired of fighting clients for every nickel and dime, even after being paid.  A customer will book a wedding, family, grad, etc and after paying a deposit or even paying for the entire package they will start to try and get extras, change things or try and get money back as they “don’t need this or want that”.  So to help with this issue I came up with a program a few years ago that I used when I did weddings.

Photo Locations Lethbridge

I often get asked about photo locations in Lethbridge.  While there are many public or semi private ones that you can use without booking or paying there are more and more that are starting to charge.  Below is a list that I have contacted to check on any requirements.  I am not including private locations as this changes so fast, will keep it to ones that most clients ask about.  Will update as I get more information…….

More finishing – White Turtle III

Finishing the small things

So doing the initial build was easy, but I am still doing the little finishing that needs to be done.  As mentioned before I hate to preplan the build to far in advance as things seem to change as the build progresses.  So I had a pile of small finishing projects to work on that I managed to get done over the past week.

Just Google it!

I hear so often about people that put all their faith in what Google tells them.  If something is wrong they Google it, if they want to know how to do something they Google it and while I do the same thing when I am stuck I do it with a lot of caution.  It is not just Google that can be an issue it is any place that offers free information or FREE courses and classes.   The other day I listened to a guest on the radio tell about the pitfalls of listening to on-line results with respect to medical diagnoses and how much someone can be messed up by the results.  If you want to know how bad it is just Google something like “Red bump on arm” and see the results,  anything from a cancerous growth, to a steph infection, to a poisonous spider bite when all it was was a mosquito bite.

Printing – to custom profile or not, that is the question!

Printing

After reading many posts on various forums about printing and using color profiles (canned VS custom) it got me thinking. I decided to do some tests to see the difference between provided profiles from Epson and paper manufacturers and the profiles that I make.

Equipment:

  • Epson 3880 (x2)
  • Epson P7000
  • Colormunki Photo running the new I1 Studio software

Bird Photography

Frank Lake, Alberta
Frank Lake, Alberta

Cannot wait to get back to one of my favorite birding places – Frank Lake. I think most photographers have those places that we just love to shoot at and this is one on my list. Only problem is that I don’t want to leave as there are so many subjects to photograph.
