"Macro Art In Nature"

Explorations in the artistic world of macro photography.

Information about the coming months ahead.

Hello everyone,

Just to let everyone know that I will not be posting much at all if any in the coming summer months.
If there is one thing that I desperately need to work on, is “marketing” my work.
I am happy with the buyers that I am working with now, but I do need to expand in some areas a bit more.
It is a part of the business that is ever changing, with new methods, new arenas to explore for my work, new styles, new needs and wants from the clients, … and so on.
It is a bit mind boggling, but it is something that I need to do in order to keep moving on with what I enjoy doing.
Everything will remain here as is, … I just will not be hanging around that much at all until late in the year.

So anyway, let me go and get back to these e-mails that I am way behind on, ….. again!

Everyone take care, … have a great time shooting and creating, ….. and enjoy it!!

Mike

  1. Good luck! That is something I need to learn about as well. But instead I just keep going out and having fun. Bad business plan, great life plan.

  2. Sounds like a good life plan to me! :)

    At least I don’t have to worry about the accounting part very much.
    I let the wife do it.
    She’s a wiz at it!

    Now marketing is another whole new ball of wax!!

  4. Have a great summer! Don’t forget to take long walks in nature. The best ideas often just “pop-up” like that while walking slowly and just being there in the moment. Let nature inspire you and help you in your marketing plan!

    Email me if you’d like to discuss marketing. I’ve done my share of reading and testing in the portrait business. Also being a full time eCommerce webmaster… maybe I could help a bit.

  6. I have always been impressed that you have even taken the time to post here, being a pro snapper and all. But I also know that the bills don’t pay themselves which is why you sometimes need to prioritise things a bit. Have fun – I’m looking forward to seeing what comes out of your efforts.

  7. Enjoy your summer. I’m sure we’ll all check back now and then for that one irresistable shot you can’t help but post. Hope all goes well with the marketing end of your business. You’re a rare talent and I wish you all the best.

  13. Just wanted to let you know that your full feed is being scraped by the millionrss project.

    You can see it here: http://www.millionrss.com/feed/Photography/%22Macro-Art-In-Nature%22-49874.html

    mine was scraped too. After having asked for removal, it was gone for a few hours and now is back up again… this is defintiely not a good thing!

  15. Ah the marketing – it is sooooo time consuming – and never ending. Good luck Michael. I will subscribe to your blog using the slick little button so I can keep up!

  18. Thanks Professor!
    I think my attorney’s message may have already been sent!

    ** Matthew sent me a very nice note, and decided to discontinue the project.
    The note certainly says plenty about the guy.
    A gentleman!

  19. i must admit i had the same experience with Matthew. He seems to be an allright guy who had an idea, which he maybe didn’t think through completely.

    A very quick response time on any messages sent. So i’ll keep monitoring to see what he’ll come up with next. He told me he would go for a directory type of thing. THan i would sign up.

  20. It sounds like you are making some great progress in marketing your work already! These dreamy looks you achieve as in this image really appeal to me. I look at some of ours sometimes and think, yeah – they’re ok, but then I look at yours and they’re in a different league! Keep it up!

  21. Hey guys, thanks so much for your feedback on the millionRSS project. For now, we completely disabled the full feeds that were being displayed and are trying to regroup and figure out how to keep the project going in a respectful way, one way we thought of was to show just the titles of each post within a feed (not showing any content from a post at all) and provide a link directly to the feed owners site for millionRSS users to view the content…we thought this would be a great way for Blog owners to get a back link from our millionRSS project – more of a directory of sorts – any thoughts? :) Cheers! Matthew
