Heartfelt THANK YOU to all who have contributed to my first FREE VIDEO and PODCASTS, providing insight and inspiration about photography and online strategy respectively. These topics are close to my heart, not only because of how much I enjoy them but also because of how powerfully they can impact our career and business success. So it gives me great pleasure to share this content in support of yours.

Introduction to Photography – Video

First and foremost, my gratitude goes out to Dave, who has taught me so much about photography and videography . . . for that and everything else, including shooting this video in our studio (pictured above). We’ve had such fun here with hundreds of models over the past 10 years, starting with my primary muse and beautiful step-daughter Terri-Lee, who also features in this video. We hope you enjoy it!

Online Strategy Tips – Podcasts

Next, huge thank you to Chantal Herman for taking the time to interview me and feature a fabulous article and podcasts at Rock this Universe. Her inimitable style of motivation also helped to focus my efforts in creating my signature site, The above video is the first in a series that we are shooting for this site, with a view to sharing insight and inspiration and also to demonstrate how you can promote your brand with the help of professional photography and videography.

Special thanks also to Michelle Salater and her team at Written by Sumer. This super talented crew, who specialize in content marketing, share brilliant information on an ongoing basis via their blog. If you’re an entrepreneur, this is an exceptionally useful resource that we highly recommend.

Of course, many other people playing a range of roles over the years have contributed to the inspiration behind this content . . . including my blogging friends who have been sorely neglected while Dave and I have been applying the majority of our energy to conservation and business projects. Despite visiting your blogs far less frequently than I would like to, you never fail to inspire me, so thank you all!
