05 July 2011 - Goodbye Phaim. Hello Fortune.
As many of you know, I started a blog (this one) a couple years ago to post about various stuff that interests me. The blog was called “phaim” and I’ve left all that legacy stuff in place because there were some pretty decent articles, including many about business, which I may refer back to at [...]
17 August 2010 - Just An Update, No Advice Today
I love being able to share things that help other people. I usually try to do that when I set out to do a blog post, but today I just have some information. (Although it might be helpful to somebody, and that would be great!) I’ve been working on an invention in my spare time [...]
07 May 2010 - Some Off-Camera Flash Basics
—Plus One Killer Resource
I don’t always have the time to answer NAPP members or blog readers in great detail, but recently a question came to me as the result of one of my posts here about flash and I took the opportunity to answer my reader at length. Since there’s a lot of good information in my reply, [...]
22 March 2010 - Low Post Volume this Week
As the Exec Director of The National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP), my biggest gig all year is Photoshop World. This week it’s in Orlando and I’m just wrapping up a few work-related things before I head out. — By the way, if you’re in central Florida, day two and three of the Expo are [...]
09 March 2010 - Cool Note from A Reader
A couple weeks ago I wrote a post that had a word in the title that’s incendiary. As a writer, I try to grab my readers’ attention by offering a new way to look at something or even use a play on words that’s a little shocking or possibly funny. (I know I don’t always [...]
02 February 2010 - Never Leave Home Without A Good Portfolio!
Sales opportunities come out of thin air sometimes and if you’re ready for it, you might just get the sale. You run into people all the time, and if you’re instantly ready with a strong portfolio, you might just get a job or two you would otherwise never hear about. In Business, There’s No Such [...]
18 January 2010 - Be Safe – Which Drive Is Best?
My buddies Scott Kelby and Terry White are great about telling their readers to back things up. Photo libraries. iTunes libraries. General files. Everything. I agree, but my budget is tighter than theirs, so I explored a bit before jumping on board the DROBO train. There are a couple things to consider. Backup software and [...]
14 January 2010 - A Few Observations from ImagingUSA
I’m home from ImagingUSA and I’m keeping with the tradition of bringing home a serious cold for the second year in a row. The sore throat started on the shuttle bus ride from the hotel to the airport, and this year’s cold came with a fever! Show Specials Okay, there’s nothing scientific here, just a [...]
11 January 2010 - A Link to A Cool Tutorial
Editor’s Note: It’s Monday and ImagingUSA is still under way in Nashville. I’m not flying home to Tampa until tonight and I should have a bit of an event review later this week. Over the holiday season last December I let you know about some blogs I like. One of those is from Atlanta-based photographer [...]
07 January 2010 - I’ve Discovered A (nearly) PERFECT Accessory for the Palm Pre
As a dedicated Palm OS user since the Pilot 1000, I’m pretty much done waiting for Palm to step up and deliver in all of the important areas to business users, which made Palm famous. I’d go back to my Treo 755p but it’s big, the browser stinks, and the platform is only continuing to [...]
