  1. Perhaps just me, but the audio is definitely not in sync with the video. Video quality is fantastic though. Only about 9 minutes in though and looking forward to all the stuff ahead.

  2. Hey Jim… I attended the webinar the other night. Thank you! I plan to do more to improve my skills.

    What are you using to do the livestream? Showing yourself and the websites? The company I work for may want to do this and I’m thinking yours might work!

    @Jennie – I use for the webinar. I liked livestream, but there were some bugs in the system. I’m considering for the next webinar.

  4. I’m enjoying this immensely (50 mins into it) and I wanted to thank you for mentioning that there were suggestive images on the website, and not showing them. I really appreciate that. It’s very nice not to have to worry about what I’m going to see when I’m watching a photography video, and nice to know you’ll be careful about what you put up. Thanks!

  5. Will you be doing portrait photographer website contests like this in the future? I missed the deadline! 🙁 Thanks for all the helpful tips though, I always enjoy reading through your posts.
