Shutterbug Print Magazine Closing, Now Online Only

Wow, another nail in the coffin of the photography industry.

After 45 years in print, Shutterbug magazine will no longer have a print version. Instead, Shutterbug will be online only. It’s just not the same as a print publication. https://www.dpreview.com/…/shutterbug-shuts-down-print-publ…

Have Fun,

Business Tip – Trade Publications

Trade Publications are a great way to really hone in on your prospective clients. They focus on one specific industry, and getting an article published in one of them, or advertising in them, will really give you more Bang for your Buck.

Be sure to use lots of photographs to grab the reader’s attention and get them engaged.

Photo – La Brea Tar Pits

It looks like someone needs to throw a few thousand Alka-Seltzer tablets into the La Brea Tar Pits to combat the gas issue. As a side note, there is no tar in the tar pits, it’s asphalt.

Let me know if you have any questions about using, or taking, photographs.

Business Tip – Articles

Articles have always been a great way to promote your business, and including photographs will really grab people’s attention.

If you need help with your writing, grab a copy of “The Elements of Style” by Strunk & White. It’s a small book filled with great information.

I took this photo of an Iris at the Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden on the campus of Calif. State University Long Beach. It’s a beautiful, and relaxing, garden. I highly recommend that you check it out.

Business Tip – Magnetic Sign

Magnetic signs for your car or truck are a great way to promote your business.

Keep them simple as people only have a second or two to see everything on the sign. Use a photograph to get your message across. A photo is easier to see than lots of words.

Magnetic signs can be easily moved from one vehicle to another if you sometimes need to change vehicles.

There are a couple of issues with magnetic signs. First, be sure to use a quality sign if you will be taking your car on the freeway. You want one with strong magnetic material. While I’ve never had a problem, I do know of some people who had them blow off on the freeway. The other issue is that if you’re a bad driver, the sign will let everyone know who you are, which reflects poorly on your business.

My wife found these sunglasses when we were walking around Laguna Beach in southern California. They were on the rock just as you see them. I felt that they were positioned perfectly, but I don’t know who put them there as there was no one else in the area.

Business Tip – Ezines

Ezines (electronic magazines) are a great promotional tool. You can include lots of photographs and copy, but don’t make them all about sales, include fun and educational articles too.

You can create them in many different software programs, then save them as a PDF file that can be downloaded from your website, or emailed to your list.

The big advantages of ezines over printed material is that there are no printing costs, and they can be easily updated.

This is a very small part of the cactus garden at the Huntington Library in California. As you go through the buildings and gardens, it’s hard to believe that this was a family’s home. It’s so huge.

Let me know what kind of photos you want to see.
