It Was Me

For so long I’ve written and talked about how most people are one skill away from success. I’ve felt a little sick the last week because I always thought I was talking about someone else.

I left my job about 3 months ago and started to build up a photography business again. I left being a full-time photographer about this time last year.

Looking back over my career there have been times where I have done very well. Other times I have struggled and I kinda feel stupid for not noticing why.

So I hate to say but I felt like a dumb ass… and then it stopped yesterday.

Maybe luck shines on me though because over the last two weeks I have learned exactly what was missing. Now I am getting ready to change everything.  I am shutting down my magazine.. I’m not going to sell it. I have a different strategy it and for all the social media I’ve built and I’m excited for the future! I can actually say this and mean it for the first time in years.  I have a system. I did small tests and DAMN! Results out the wazoo!

I’ve never had this before and it’s been hard to make money at photography. Hoping you get a sessions sucks! Hoping sucks! I’d rather have a plan that doesn’t require hope..And now I do!

Next, I’m getting rid of things I don’t use.  I’m selling some cameras, a film scanner and electronics. I’m using the profits to push into the system I’ve built.

I’m not going to tell you how it will work yet but I’ll give you little piece.

Imagine you show up to your wedding reception and your photography.. who is me.. Hands you a check for 4 thousand dollars. This will happen.

Imagine you come to the boudoir session you set up with me and I hand you over 1,000 dollars back. This will happen soon.

I’m excited and I can’t wait but for the next few days.. until I get it going photo sessions are 199. So message me. Facebook or IG is the easiest.

P.S. I’m not booking any nude sessions.

Oh.. One last thing. Utah is an interesting place to shoot. I love Utah! I love Salt Lake City but it’s a too different and so I’m not going to promote myself there anymore. Portland and Seattle are now my biggest priorities. I’ll also be working in Jackson, Wyoming and Sun Valley, Idaho. Not saying I won’t shoot in Utah but it’s not a focus anymore.

The mini sessions in Salt Lake City this next weekend are my last in Utah.

ikon-republik-1-18Ikon Republik- I live and travel in a frickin van and I love my life! I founded a magazine, VEGA Magazine.   My magazine is full of beautiful nude women and its based around the idea of respect and soon it will include amazing articles on how to improve your life!  Out of the last 8 months, I have spent 4 of them living in the desert, under the stars and cooking over a campfire that was made with two sticks and a bow. I believe in self-sufficiency and integrity.
