When my family and I were searching for the perfect puppy, my wife thought we were buying him for our children and as a household companion. Little did she know that I had a hidden agenda. I was on the hunt for the perfect stock model. While she was worried about temperament and overall health, my only requirement was that he be photogenic. Hold your judgment; Hudson is by far my best-selling model earning me thousands of dollars, and his modeling fee is just one piece of popcorn.

Bullies don’t own you

You sad little man…You are quite honestly not that important to me.”

Those words were directed at me by my former employer.

The words and the personal attack are supposed to hurt and humiliate me, but they simply sound like the taunts of a schoolyard bully. Words like those might have affected me when I was 10 or 11 years old on the playground, but as a 30 year veteran in the creative field, they strike me as sad.

It’s a fact that in your career you are likely to… no scratch that. You WILL interact with people who

Finding Your Foothold In A Saturated Industry Is A Problem Us Photographers And Videographers Face

Celebrating 10 years with KelbyOne!!

As a graphic designer of 20+ years, and a user of InDesign for the same length of time, that is a question I get asked a lot when I talk to other designers who haven’t braved the wonders of the little “Id” icon in their tool bar.
