Originally posted here on Design*Sponge. “Pricing Etiquette” Yes, Virginia, there is a polite way to price. Here are a couple of common pricing faux pas to avoid: Changing your prices too often: yes,...

      So true! You should charge for what your worth. If someone wants cheap, cheap quality is what they’ll get.ReplyCancel

    Cupcake Jones – Portland, OR

    It was really great to have my brother and his wife visit us last week. We did a Portland style “staycation” with them and visited all our favorite spots around town including Cupcake Jones. Absolutely beautiful and delicious cupcakes that also make for especially pleasing photo subjects. Now it’s time to get back to work....

    43 Totally Random Pro Tips

    This is actually an old post from a different blog I dabbled in. It was called Pro Photo Tips and it kind of fizzled out. Still, there are some good posts on there that I want to bring over here. Like this one. Get it in camera whenever you can. Photoshop time is expensive and...

      Beautiful work, website, blog, everything! Found you through Lucid Content.

      If you don’t mind my asking, what are the dimensions of your printed portfolio? I’m a student at UCLA Extension and am in the process of assembling my portfolio. Also, do you have any tips on where an amateur such as myself should print some of my pieces? I haven’t had much luck at Kinkos.

      Thanks!

        Thanks for the kind words!

        The dimensions for that portfolio is 11×11 and the post bound book is from Lost Luggage. I do my own prints on a Canon Pixma Pro9500 using Moab paper that is cut, scored, and drilled for the Lost Luggage line. Moab also makes scoured/drilled paper for Pina Zangaro post bound books, which are a little less expensive.

        If you don’t want to make your own prints, I would recommend getting prints made from a real photo lab (i.e. not a grocery store photo lab) and then putting them in acetate sheets that come with either Lost Luggage or Pina Zangaro books. Not sure where you’re located, but in Portland Digicraft and Pro Photo Supply do a great job. Elsewhere, I would probably just get them done through White House Custom Color or AdoramaPix and have them shipped to you.

        Hope that helps.ReplyCancel

      Thank you, Lincoln, for your very swift and thoughtful response. This is all very helpful. I’m going to do some research based on your response right now. Thanks so much again!

    Rio Bravo Patio

    I’m pretty excited about this picture for a couple reasons. This shot feels like a good 50/50 mix of my architecture work and personal work. It’s not a literal photograph, yet it describes this place so perfectly to me. And I just think in the crumbling brick and rotting wood is so cool looking. It’s...
