Viral Visual Strategies

Social Media – VISUAL social media – is really powerful.

“On Thursday April 10th I shared the tumblr page with a huge dog magazine I’ve worked with regularly called The Bark. By Friday morning, it had 4,700 likes and 1,080 shares. I also sent the link out to a magazine called Koream Magazine, and on Friday they started to publicize it. All all the other huge Asian American media channels started to pick it up – like Hyphen, Angry Asian Man, Audrey Magazine, and more.

 

The Korean American founder and curator of a My Modern Met saw it on Saturday and immediately reached out to me for an interview that afternoon. Within the hour she had it up on the site and she told me that all the major news sites follow the site like The Huffington Post, The Daily Mail, Yahoo, The Today Show, and Good Morning America, just to name a few.”

Talk About Your Awesome Opportunities… Holy Smokes THIS Rocks!

An “opportunity” for you to bust your ass, make some cool shots and then give them away to someone who will then get to use them for whatever the heck they want to for as long as they want to. Oh, and by the way you need to simply shut up about it.

sucks

 

And they are happy to tell you why the work you do sucks… they even have “Ten Reasons” that it does so.

LOL… togs… waddaya gonna do.

No, I won’t link them… they are already getting all the traffic they need.

Oh, and there is NO MENTION of money on this site either… so you get to work hard, submit, get told that your work sucks and if it doesn’t suck, they get to keep it and use it for anything they want without paying you for it.

Yeah, Photographers is smaurt peepuls.

My Newest Book Will Take Your Photography To The Next Level… or something

how-to

I have decided it was time for me to put it all out there… no holding back, no withholding of the secrets that I am privvy to. All of the stuff that other photographers wont tell you… I will. I am like a man on fire.

Without the burning pants and sickly smell of charred skin of course.

But otherwise… burning up, baby.

So here is a brain dump of EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW TO BE ABLE TO SHOOT GOOD.

Some of the topics I cover show you exactly WHY I am considered one of the foremost photography people south of Chandler Blvd and West of the Walmart.

Yeah… McNally ain’t gonna spill his guts like this.

Arias ain’t gonna spill his guts like this.

In fact, when bringing up guts and the spilling of them no one does it better than me. Once in college I drank an entire gallon of Boone’s Farm Strawberry something… GUTS SPILLED.

Epically.

I have no idea why I told you that, but then I have no idea why you are still reading this.

Chapters I will use to expose the ugly underbelly of photography and those secrets that only the ‘pros’ use to make gooder pictures than you do.

A sample of the kind of hard-hitting information that will spell success into the 6 figures and beyond.

1. Which ISO is best for Bokeh so creamy you can stand a fork in it.

2. Portfolio secrets I don’t even know, and I know a lot.

3. Things to say to Art Directors that make them feel all jelly and want to give you more money for the most stupid mundane shit you will ever shoot.

4. Sure, you gotta great camera… the joke is on you. Most pros shoot iPhones and Holgas.

5. You’ve heard of the “rule of thirds”? Bullshit… the “Rule of Pi Squared Rounded to the Closest Tenth” is what all the big guys use. Especially the Europeans who are all working here and doing killer work for big ad agencies without their green cards.

6. The 6 Secrets to finding a good Off Shore Bank for all the money you will be making after reading this book.

7. Ethical questions all photographers must face. (Gotcha… LOL, no photographers have ethics… that is just so stupid.)

There are like a lot more… and all of them are life changing, awesome and will give you that extra heads-up for getting the drop on your competition.

In fact if you have a lot of competition in your market, you will especially enjoy the section on “Staging an Accident” with ten tips even the biggest city Coroner will miss every time.

So send me money. Lots of money.

If you send me enough money I will send you the book.

If you don’t send me enough money, I wont send you the book – and don’t ask or whine about it, WUSS.

No returns / No refunds.

Get the heck outta here.
