Welcome to the first episode of 2019! I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday and are as excited for this new year as I am.
A few weeks ago, I received an email from Matt, a listener of the show, asking an interesting question that has been discussed many times by others and I thought it’d be great to cover it here. Thankfully, I’m joined by a wonderful photography who also happens to pull double-duty as my wife! Please welcome the one and only Nicole S. Young (aka Nicolesy).
Matt allowed me to share portions of his email and the one that is most appropriate for the show notes is the following:
First, I love the No Name Photo Show, thank you for the time you take to create the content. This is in reference to the most recent episode of No Name and the question of what makes a professional photographer, a professional. My question is, in reference to your professional photographer question, is it only those that do it as their own business that are the professionals or would someone like me fall into it as well? If not, then how and or when would I get to that point?
The second half of the show is all about Flickr and why both Nicole and I are so excited to see what SmugMug will do to grow it in 2019. It’s a great episode and I hope you enjoy it!
