Skip Cohen: Marketing for Photographers at creativeLIVE

Update 6/9/12: Thanks to all of the creativeLIVE viewers for visiting my website and checking out my blog. Day one on the show was really fun and informative. Skip Cohen has a wealth of knowledge that he has been so  gracious to share. Good luck in your creative endeavors. On to day two!

(Original post) Okay, I’m not really an orphan. But I would like to be a student of Skip Cohen at the creativeLIVE studios on June 8th and 9th. No money is involved, all you need to do is watch and hit the  like button on my very short video. After a lot of hard work I am finally gaining traction producing videos for business and corporations and work in film sets as a director, DP and sound recordist. But my long term strategy is to balance my work in the world of sound and motion with stills work. I’ve actually been a photographer for a very long time. I offer services as a commercial, event and portrait photographer. Even though I get a lot of complements for my work and am constantly upgrading my skills and gear I still have a lot to learn on the business side. Skip is known as a master of marketing and is sure to help me focus my energies in this area.

Wet, Cloudy, Icy: Washington! – Images by Michael Kleven

I am working to unite my Photoshelter website with my online personal website and blog. Towards that end here is a link to gallery of images I’ve taken in my travels around the state. Some are from the blueberry fields of Puyallup and the nearby Foothills Trail. Others are from the White River near Auburn Southern Kind County and the Outdoor Sculpture Park on Elliot Bay. All photos may be ordered as prints or licensed for publication. Let the integration begin!
