Moving Hosting Providers

I’m in the middle of migrating all my data and web site from 24/7 Hosting to SiteHost. This time I decided to use a VPS so I get complete control rather than living within the limitations of pre-packaged solutions. It has taken me quite a bit to set it up, but I’m now loving the control I now have. DNS domains are still proving to be difficult (groan).

So goodbye 24/7 Hosting and hello SiteHost! Let’s get some reliability back!

What it takes to Financially Succeed in Photography

Olivier Duong has written an article titled “the shocking truth about what it takes to succeed in photography“. His point-of-view may seem slanted, but it matches my experience in other industries. It’s sad to see that business acumen is more important that one’s craft. Those I know who professionally work in an arts field are very business oriented. The ones who are the happiest in their work tend to do just enough business development and marketing to keep a comfortable level of revenue coming in. Myself, I would love to understand just how to get this balance right.
