NNPS Episode 044 – Making an Unsplash

By |2018-11-27T06:39:01+00:00Nov 27th, 2018|

Well, isn’t this a nice treat. We’ve got our very first in-studio guest at the No Name Photo Show. Originally, I planned on recording this episode on my own, but after having a great conversation about the value of a photo with my good friend, Dan Hawk, I asked him to join! In this episode, Dan and I return to the topic of Squarespace partnering with Unsplash, first discussed in Episode 43. Because Dan is primarily a commercial photographer, he has some pretty interesting reasons as to why this partnership, and Unsplash’s business model in general, warrant concern. You’re in for a real treat, so listen up and enjoy!

    Episode 44 gave me a lot to consider. Like Dan, I have a Squarespace site that will be difficult to move, but I will have to think hard about that. As I enter 2019 I also need to rethink my pricing and how much I am willing to do for local non-profits for minimal compensation. I do feel that being part of the community is important, especially living in a small town. But I do understand the need to insure people never stand the value of what they are getting. Thank you for bringing up this issue.

    I didn’t realize that there was a share link, but I did put up a link to episode 44 on my Facebook wall.
