How to promote photography as a business
This (rather long but well worth reading) article contains a wealth of information about promoting photography as a business, both online and offline.  Four photographers at different stages in their careers and working in different fields within the industry were kind enough to share their experience and knowledge to help people who are considering a career in photography or are just starting out.  Big thanks to the interviewees, and I hope you all find this article to be a useful resource.  Enjoy!

What is this all about
I put a journal up asking for suggestions, and here they are! This time I asked people to suggest themselves and then one or more other piece of stockart - and some awesome pieces have been suggested!
To the inevitable people asking "How can I be featured?" the answer is simple - watch my journal here and on Mollinda - I do art ones too :aww:

Stunning portrait works, some of them I recognize, others are new to me.  I'm particularly fond of the Ray Charles portrait, but it was Brood that drew me to her gallery.  Look deep in the eyes and be amazed at the emotions created there.
