Seeking advice on post production tools for developing interactive multimedia journalism projects.  What tools are others using to create projects using video, stills, audio, text as well as interactivity?

Marketing  - 
 
Having been a working photographer for over 25 years, I'm having an extremely difficult time wrapping my head around the new realm of marketing and promotion in my photo business.  My paying work has come to a standstill and I read conflicting information about what to use to market and promote what I do constantly and I figured I'd reach out to this community to try and see if I can get some solid solutions/advice in what to do to increase my paying gigs and why.

My background comes from photojournalism so my work is more editorial based, which has seen the pond dry up in that genre'.  So I've found that I do pretty well shooting editorial style portraiture and action type images of performing artists like dancers and singers (opera, jazz, etc)

Having said that, What advice, resources are there to market and promote what I do?  I'm literally at a standstill now and need some serious help.

ANYONE?

Facebook is becoming more and more the proverbial thorn in my side.  How I wish +Google+ had the traction with potential customers that Facebook seems to have.  Anyone else feel the same way?  How does one bypass as +David Hobby has termed "the Patina" that is Facebook? +Corwin Hiebert is experimenting with a 4 week Facebook and Twitter Blackout - which has my curiosity peeked.

Introduction

“Slow Down & Understand The World Around You” is the foundation of the work I produce as a multimedia storyteller.

Having delved into this brave new world of digital multimedia story telling has opened up my eyes to the creative potential of compelling story telling.  I’m now leveraging technologies and publishing platforms to tell stories. I’m immersed in these emerging, and converging, forms of communication, all of which can be brought to their fullest potential for your project. I can shoot stills, video, or both. Most of all, what I bring to your project are the skills of a multimedia journalist & story teller who understands, and still works in, the field.

When we are done, what you will have is a story. Your story. 

Interested?

Although an older complex, I've lived here on 3 separate occasions and each time has been a positive experience. I currently reside at Rivertowne, having lived here for the third time for 3 years. The lack of newness is offset by the peaceful ambiance I experience year around which to me is very important. Although no manager on site, the Property management company is responsive to the needs of maintenance requests as well as maintaining the parklike peace that has drawn me to this complex throughout the past several years. Yes there are new complexes - but you also pay alot more. My rent is reasonable and the added bonus of garbage and water being paid is bonus. If you're looking for peace and quiet with shopping close by, I recommend living here.
