    Thanks, Jeff! Great stuff. Although I’d propably watch you present about

    so you say any gift you give someone is worthless? The value of art depends
    on what it means to the receiver/buyer. A ‘bad’ photo that is the last one
    taken of a persons grandparent (that you may have given someone) etc may be
    worth more (have more value) than all the technically best photos taken
    over the rest of the person life. The amount you charge does not mean you
    are any good, it just means you put greed before art. Often something you
    give has more value than anything else

    Send me you email address (from my web site) and I can send you some of the
    images (with you in them) if you like. 🙂

    Damn this guy takes a long time to give 15 tips. Can someone just write the
    tips in dot form?

  18. JennyFTOL

    Sorry, but this is like too many so-called ‘ how to’ videos. I don’t want a
    guided tour of your portfolio. Just address the topic and cut the waffle.

  19. Dreambro1

    Chris Fletcher, You dont know Camera settings and how to get good shots,
    you will have no business.

  20. Ken Snyder

    Jeff you are so amazing….. I have learned so much from you.. Thank you
    for your dedication and love of photography.

  21. Kit Moc

    Jeff’s passion is infectious! I would hire him just for that as I know he
    would put all his passion into his photo’s.

    Fantastic! My first Jeff Cable video, and I will be looking for more!

  24. Matthew Battisti

    Jeff Cable, this was an amazing video and thank you for posting it. The
    only thing I personally don’t like is that last slide when it says Time Is
    Money. I personally don’t like that saying because it’s just not true. Let
    me ask you a couple of questions, this goes for anyone not just Jeff that
    uses that statement.

    Can you lose money? YES
    Can you make money? YES
    Can you lose time? YES
    Can you make time? NO

    Time isn’t money, time is everything! Time doesn’t stop for anyone but
    money can. Now, think about this when you tell people I appreciate your
    time. Furthermore, let your clients know that you appreciate their time as

    P.S. This is not a negative message by any means. This is just a different
    way to look at that statement.

    All the best to everyone

    when he said “I figure stuff out in 15 seconds or less” …. I decided I
    had seen enough
