Hey guys,

Today I want to recommend a book and a website. ¬†Both belong to photographer Dane Sanders. ¬†Dane has this built-in urge to give, give, give! ¬†His book Fast Track Photographer¬†is a look into what makes a successful photographer in our day and age. ¬†His insights are spot-on and even if you’re not a budding photographer, there are many principles in this book that can benefit anybody who works in the service industry. ¬†So whether you’re a photographer or a doctor, check it out! ¬†

The other is his new website where Dane and guests answer all types of questions about photography.  Come visit his site.  Take a look at his recent video below.

Happy New Year everyone! ¬†I just finished watching a video that I wanted to share with all of you. ¬†It is the first of a series of 10 videos featuring 24 “top gun” professional photographers. ¬†Yep, this is the first online reality TV show for and about photographers. ¬†These 24 will be split up into 2 teams and they will compete against each other. ¬†Their goal is to make a short film on photography as well as come up with an original PSA (public service announcement) for the charities they represent. ¬†These 2 charities are ThirstRelief and Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep. ¬†This reality show is the “appetizer”, if you may, for the 2009 WPPI(Wedding & Portrait Photographers International) Convention and Trade Show. ¬†And I will be attending! ¬†My first WPPI! ¬†I am super stoked! ¬†Okay, enough with the ¬†superlatives and enjoy the video. ¬†
