http://bit.ly/293oZRg

Let’s take a moment to thank the inventors of the Internet for one of the fiercest inventions of our time!

However, just because you can reach your existing and potential clients pretty much instantly via email, social networks, or even a Skype call, it doesn’t mean that print is dead!

It’s true – while other business owners need to scavenge the Internet to find photos that are not only affordable, but also appropriate for their brand and haven’t been overused by other businesses, photographers don’t need to worry about things like that.
