Joe’s Topic –
Keeping it real in an increasingly challenging world. These last couple of years have been tough – even for me. The economy has had an impact on the whole space, including the high end. In this all new presentation, using images shot over the course of the last 18 months, including some from just a few weeks ago, we’ll talk about the adjustments I’m making to reinvigorate my business, keep my passion and keep making money making pictures. I love this business with all my soul and I want to give folks a shot in the arm or a kick in the butt to improve their skills, make some needed changes and get moving again.
