    Guys, seriously, you should look into audio quality. It suffers for number
    of episodes. Other than that, thanks for the episodes!

    LinkedIn suffers from spammers, from what I can see you guys are advocating
    spam. A REAL strategy would be to introduce yourself at a networking event,
    drop in to their office etc and use LinkedIn as a secondary verification
    channel. Of course Word Of Mouth and advocating your current clients give
    you some acknowledgement through their B2B social networks will go a longer
    way than random spam intro’s.

    Instagram is also a professional networking site. It was created for photos
    and great photographers do very well advertising their images through it.

    LinkedIn is not a reach out for any successful photographer.

    Hello there I was wondering how I should go about making a backdrop like a
    news room, like the local news channel. I’m making sports highlight videos
    and would like to have the in studio look without a green screen or having
    a very expensive set built. I’m looking to build a portable background to
    sit at a desk in front of and talk about sports, how should I do this?
    Thank you in advance for any help that you may give me. Also thank you for
    the great content.

    you guys should put coffee in your mugs, cause water makes it look empty,
    mostly when you put them down after drinking

    The sound is a bit “clippy” – otherwise great info as normal

    One of the things most photographers don’t think about when starting a
    business is how much organization they are going to need. You’ve got model
    releases and contracts to be signed and filed away, print orders, portrait
    appointments, editing workflow, website development, networking and
    marketing to worry about. In order to make a decent wage, you’ll have to
    keep track of your time spent on all these tasks along with all the
    expenses of advertising, website, camera gear, gas, and more. I remember
    the first time I sat down to figure out how much I was actually making per
    hour, it was pretty sad. If you’re not sure how to go about adding
    everything up, we’ve made an easy hourly wage calculator that does all the
    work for you, check it out on our channel, Photographer Overnight.

    As a photographer, there will be times when you feel like quitting for one
    reason or another, but just remember the reasons you got into photography
    in the first place. Sharing your artistic talents with others is rewarding
    in many ways, but can also be frustrating or stressful. Remember the
    compliments people have given your work in the past and hold on to those so
    that dissatisfied clients or criticism from others doesn’t bring your whole
    world crashing down. Try to let the negativity in your life roll off your
    shoulders and focus on doing what you love. We love helping aspiring
    photographers succeed in their business and have created an entire youtube
    channel with tips and tutorials to do just that.

    Brilliant advice! Linkedin isn’t a one size fits all tool, but can
    definitely have it’s uses.
