As you like... But I would think the way Facebook handles my images and the rules for sharing and interacting with groups are NOT for photographers.
The way Google lets us handle our images are way better. And im not only speaking about image quality and upload size.

Have fun over there.

I was asked how to share a Snapchat image for easy "friend adding" like this one: https://instagram.com/p/5njX6XDs5s/?taken-by=scottwyden

So I recorded this video to show how.

3 Reasons To Not Hire The Wrong Photographer

This article goes way beyond just 3 reasons. I share a story, that's 100% true. The point is to educate other photographers as to what NOT to do, as well as educate potential customers how to not hire a photographer who does the wrong things.

This is super important, so please read and share so others are educated as well.

Thank you!

6 months already? How did that happen?

Where did the time go? Layla has already had an eventful and loved life. She is amazing, so cheerful and excited about everything. Melissa and I are extremely lucky. It’s hard to believe that she went from looking like that, to what she looks like now.…

#AskScottWyden Do I Need An Intern For My Photography Business?

I was asked if an intern was needed. My answer was "maybe", and I offered some advice for those who don't NEED an intern.
Please give it a read and share :-) https://scottwyden.com/intern/

No offense intended, +Scott Wyden Kivowitz; just an addition to the conversation. Often photographers think about tasks that can be outsourced (like social media), and they think bringing an intern onboard would be a free way to get some work done. You're right, you never mentioned not paying interns, but it's related to your discussion. You also didn't mention ways that you can set up an internship program so that the intern can get something out of it. I know that you're focused on the social media side, and tools that can obviate the need for an intern. Just in case someone wants to look at the other side of the options, the SBA has a decent article here on setting up internships: https://www.sba.gov/blogs/how-set-internship-program-your-small-business. (This article includes which tasks you can have an intern do without paying them.)

Affordable and top quality! Rich came to our house and explained the products and service efficiently, and clearly. He made it easy for anyone to understand. The install was fairly quick, maybe 3 hours total with one person. We have a small house so we didn't need much. But we paid for some add-ons which work great as well. I set off the alarm accidentally at first, and the call center was on top of it. So far so good, and we couldn't be happier with GPS!
