Very pleased to announce that my meeting went wonderfully this morning. Wrei, the card worked again! I have 32 projects on the calendar immediately and a few more than that coming out of the ground as we speak. I don't know whether to click my heels, or run for cover! I'll click my heels.

Hearty congratulations Jim. So that will be one a week from now until err this could run and run. Now what we need is for Nikon to deliver a 17mm PC lens or for Canon to deliver a big MB camera to go with your 17mm TS. Oh, and I'm still shocked that somebody managed to let this customer slip through their fingers presumably they had bigger things to do or just got fed up with doing real estate. Still their loss is your gain and hopefully you can find time to post some of your work so that I can continue with my training course.

Congratulations on the successful meeting Jim. While "the card" contains a bit of magic, it is good to see the guy with the best solution winning!

Thanks Nick! I'm with you, but if I had to guess, I'd say lack of attention to detail, substituting Photoshop for photo technique, unwillingness/inability to part with the $$$ for top shelf gear, unwillingness/inability to assess the client's needs and over deliver. Tiring of shooting residential architecture is most likely not one of the reasons. If you are tired of shooting a subject, you just don't take those assignments anymore. This is a clear case of the client being tired of the photographer shooting their architecture, and voting them off the island as it were.

Something that I see over and over, in good times and lean times (surprisingly) is a realization on the part of the photographer that this is a business. You don't get to shoot what you want every single day, in fact that's the case most of the time, that's kind of why they call it "work". If I had a dime for every aspiring pro shooter who has asked for advice, all the while thinking they are about to embark on a career shooting where, what and when they want, I'd already have a Mustang at HQ. It's all about shooting where what and when the client wants, then adding your talent to that. I decided early on that I'd rather cater to the client's needs and be financially able to shoot what I want on occasion, vs. shooting what I want all the time but not being able to venture far from the bridge I'm living under. In the cold light of day, it wasn't a difficult choice to make.

As I said in an earlier post, this scenario is one of the few bright spots one can honestly point out to the fledgling shooter, and it happens every day. Find a spot where someone isn't measuring up, has read too much of their own press and grown too big for their lens covers, and you have a ready made opportunity for success. If you take care of them, they'll never be on the market again. Ahhhh, ya gotta love pure capitalism, and letting the market work.

Great stuff on this page (and the last page, and the one before that, etc.; man, it's hard to keep up!).

Congratulations, Jim, on landing another new client.

I've finally finished editing Topeka and put a gallery up on my website:

www.zphoto.biz/topeka

The photos run the gamut from warbirds to owners to pilots to WWII vets to re-enactors to ramp rats to engine checks to concession stands. Hope you enjoy them!
