As Monika prepares her next episode of Monis Motivklingel (her photography podcast in German) Chris talks to her about the topic of this episode: anger in photography. Marcus wonders how to price his photography and it’s a bit more involved than one might imagine. You’ll have to think about your cost of doing business, the photo gear you buy, the rent you pay, the time you spend, the training you might need, any markup that you might need to charge in order to be able to re-invest back into your photography. Last but not least, Sonny of Pocketlenses brings us some great tips for smart phone photography.
Warning: this episode might be a little bit morbid. Chris talks to his guest lawyer Mike Diamond about what happens to your digital photos when you die, especially if most of your photos live in the cloud. It’s harder than you think to retrieve digital assets from Yahoo, Facebook or others if they don’t belong to you and if the person who they belonged to is no longer alive. Chris will also discuss a recent episode of Radiolab that is about a set of pictures taken by a war photographer and the question who can see them and who decides if they can be published. Chris also asks for help.
This episode explores if there’s such a thing as “photoshopped to death” – Chris opens up his top secret before and after comparisons, the Nepal fundraiser has made over $10k and that’s just because of you (THANK YOU!!!)
Chris will also do an unplanned surprise visit to the Kingdom of Bhutan, the fundraiser ebook will be available in a printed version some time later this year.
We crossed $12,000 in sales of our fundraiser ebook People of the Himalayas! I can’t even begin to express how much your help means to us.
Together with these pictures, we received the following message from our friend Chhokpa who was part of the help effort to bring food supplies to the people of the Sindhupalchok District in Nepal.
“Hello Chris. Today we distributed food stuff to the people of different village of sindhupalchok district. Government still not reach in that area so with some of our uncle from my mothers village we have distrobuted the food supplies(rice,lentil,oil and salt) to the villagers. Still many villagers have not get necessary tent and food stuff.”
If the government doesn’t get help out to the villages, the people will just do it themselves. And we’re proud to be able to support them.
