A few interesting links about Photography, Technology, Social Media, and Gadgets that I’ve come across recently. Some are smart, some are funny, and some are just plain dumb, but they are all interesting for one reason or another. Have a look and let me know what you think:
- 10 Surprising Things Creative Websites Often Forget | Graph Paper Press
Great article on a few very important things that lots of photographers leave out when designing their websites. My tip: put your phone number at the top AND bottom of every single page on your site. If you want photography clients to contact you, they need an easy way to do it.

This is a great real-world situation showing what it's like to work on photography projects in the trenches. It's definitely not all glitz and glamor (but this one looks pretty great!).

Another great FREE eBook from the good folks at Photoshelter. Don't forget that if you are interested in selling your photography Photoshelter is the best place to do so.
