Iâ€™d like to take a moment and introduceÂ you all to my new business partner and manager- Dan Beck:
If that name sounds familiar, itâ€™s because Dan also happens to be my husband. This is a good thing, for many reasonsâ€¦ the main reason being that Iâ€™ve never been very good with the â€œbusinessâ€ aspect of my â€œphotography businessâ€. Like many photographers, I got into this whole thing so that I could do what I love- expressing myself through art. My chosen medium happens to be photography. Â I didnâ€™t become a photographer with the intention of starting a business and making money. If I could just shoot and not worry about the money aspect of it, I would be much happier. The truth is,Â Iâ€™m not good at promoting or marketing myself. I hate dealing with contracts and asking clients for payment. Â I always forget about my twitter account and I donâ€™t know anything about search engine optimization. Luckily, Dan does and will be helping me with all of that and then some.
To give you a little bit better idea of what Dan is like, hereâ€™s some quick details. He has is graduate degree in elementary education. Heâ€™s been a musician for most of his life (currently playing drums with GOLDTOOTH, a live hip hop project based out of Albany, NY). He loves robots and comic books, cigars, iced tea, his beard, and . . . me.Â And well, he’s just awesome.
Â Iâ€™m thrilled to have Dan step into this role because this will allow me to spend more time doing what I love most â€“ photography. Dan has a lot of awesome promotional ideas that he’s bringing to the table right now, and I have a lot of ideas for lifestyle series. Â Stay tuned, because these ideas are about to turn into plans, and we’ll be filling you in over the next few weeks.
I love this guy.
(It is a most excellent beard.)
