1128. A Day in the Life: What's It Really Like to Be a Contemporary Photographer?
“The business of being an artist dominates all artists’ lives. I probably spend less than 5% of my time actually creating art. Most of my time I’m doing all the many aspects of marketing, selling, promoting, positioning my work to the various niches that I want to appeal to. For that reason I created a program I call, ‘The Art of Selling Art.’ It is based on the fundamental principles of marketing that I have learned by intense research and study and especially on the ground, hands-on experience over that last couple of decades. The program includes free webinars as well as access to proven, real-world, actionable tools and resources because, the greater number of my fellow artists that have a better foundation in the business of art, the better we all do. In the near future I want to grow this into a small enterprise of six or so people that can serve specific segments of the artist population.”
