We see it almost every day: questions and comments pop up online about copyright abuses, gallery-artist relationships gone sour, and insurance not doing what they are supposed to do. Not to speak of questions around accomplishing more website hits and the eternal evergreen: quality photography.
Good news: At the SNAGneXt conference in Asheville many of these questions will be answered by professionals with critical expertise!
SNAG asked 3 Pros to be for hire during the conference and provide one-on-one help in areas where it's most often needed. I encourage all of you with your questions to take advantage of this opportunity. A 30 minute investment that will pay off big time in the long term. Rent-A-Pro!
And if you haven't made up your mind yet whether it is "worth" attending this conference, I hope you will look at the incredibly interesting presentations, workshops, and discussions around "how to make a living in the field." Because after all, this is what we all need to get done in one way or the other, no matter where we are on the making spectrum. If there ever was a conference aiming to provide nuts-and-bolts type of information, this is it!
