    I don’t think I have ever watched a youtube video over an hour long in it’s
    entirety until now. I will be watching this one again because I didn’t have
    the foresight to grab a pen and a notebook from the beginning the first
    time. Tons of great information. Good presentation Thanks for providing
    this recording!

    This was absolutely amazing except the Communication Arts subject, “I was
    fat and happy for 5 years”, just for being one of the 175 winners of the
    photography annual? I don’t understand how that turns out because you don’t
    even win a price money, Is CA that known I mean, I’ve heard of the NY Times
    but never heard of CA (I’m from Europe not US)

  16. Peter Gregory says:

    Loved everything about the insider’s view of photography as a business, but
    very loved the end point that if you give away what you are good at, it
    doesn’t build rapport where you eventually will get paid – you have to hold
    your line and ask your price. Thanks, David, for the generous sharing of
    your hard-earned info. Especially loved the mini tri-pod use – love the

  25. Tibor Jonas says:

    The only problem I can see in this word is some people called “professional
    photographer” who doesn’t know what they are doing… They got paid to do
    what they do they do photography as living but as most of the people see
    you with a professional gear they thing you are good what you doing… but
    they don’t and they still can say “I’m professional” ‘coz they get paid…
    what I call professional is you or the other real professional photographer
    not who just get money for some pictures. and that’s I believe wrong in
    this life
    I’m making money as a photographer but whoever say they want me as a pro
    photographer I’d rather say I’m nowhere near the pro photographers as I see
    my mistakes I see what I could do better and as I just started to make that
    as a living I don’t want to say I’m a pro! I say that to sell what I’m
    doing but I know myself and I know my work is nowhere near as your work!
    I’m not calling myself as a pro but when I hear that I feel like I should
    really say I’m not a pro!

  38. TheMrAlienShowLIVE says:

    Do you have any ideas how I could make money with a Nikon D3200, 18-55 kit
    lens and a 35mm f1.8? Or isn’t that quite good enough.

  39. joeVARADI says:

    Let’s say I wanted to get started as a local portrait photographer (or
    something) and, to keep myself from starving, have a part time job. What
    are typically the busier parts of the day for that sort of work so I could
    come up with a work schedule around that?
