Contracts For Clients   Leave a comment

I attended a seminar yesterday evening that was hosted by Nancy Ramos from the Photo Sharp Shooters group on facebook. The speaker was Daniel X. Nguyen and he discussed the important points of a contract. Daniel was (and currently still is) an attorney and his specialty was in business law, so a very impotant topic such as this coming from him was very useful, valuable, and informative.

While I do have a contract for my clients, this lecture was very much needed in helping me work on my contract better and have a better understanding.

Business Essentials – Marc Weisberg

I attended a meeting yesterday evening. The speaker was Marc Weisberg and the topic was on Business Essentials. He covered how he ran his photography business to help those who attended, get a better idea how a business would be run. There were some things that I had already learned from the meeting on the night before, however, there were many more things that I learned last night. It’s nice to learn new information because I think it will help me run business.

Riverside Smug Meeting June 2010 – Kathy Rappaport   Leave a comment

A SMUG is a place where photographers can learn, teach and meet up with other photographers who share the same passion. It’s also how photographers can tell other photographers what’s happening in each others’ world and discover what’s happening in others. SMUGs are a great way to connect with other photographers and add a few weapons to their creative arsenals.

I attended a smug meeting in Riverside, CA. The speaker was Kathy Rappaport and the topic was on book keeping. Kathy talked about what a photographer needed to start a business such as business plans, book keeping, and how to maintain a business. It was very informative.

Shilpa And Sudhir   Leave a comment

I attended an Indian Bridal workshop over the weekend. Out of the many workshops and photoshoots that I had done, this one was by far my favorite. It was organized and hosted by Victoria Le who was the orgnizer for the O.C. Wedding Photographer meetup group. Shilpa and Sudhir were the models and they were great and beautiful! The make up, hair styling and accessories were provided by Khyati Nishant Kotecha from Shear Artistry Salon.
