In the article, Barker gives some solid advice to young photographers:
[quote align="center" color="#999999"]"I always tell them three things. Work on your portfolio so you have an established body of work. Then I tell them to take a business class because the hardest part about running a photography business is running a business. And, thirdly, I tell them to learn how to write because everything from a first-impression email to captions for your images to website content matters, and writing skills provide a vehicle through which your images can be published."[/quote]

It's always exciting for us here at pictureline to watch the local photographers (and our customers!) grow and thrive. Long live the art and community of photography!
