A Fireside Chat with Portrait Mentors Tim & Bev Walden: Part 1

A Fireside Chat with Portrait Mentors Tim & Bev Walden: Part 1

You’re welcome.

That’s what I have to say about this, and the following conversation, on The PhotoTellers. You’re welcome.

Very few people in the portrait world have impacted more Photographers than Tim & Bev Walden. Today you’ll hear part 1 of my conversation with 2 great people.

Tim & Bev Walden

Tim & Bev Walden

If you want to be a top-knotch Photographer, listen in! If you want to operate a top-knotch business, listen in! These 2 conversations, while light-hearted and funny, are filled with heavy wisdom. Get your pencil ready!

For what shall thee prepare thyself? Glad you asked . . .

  • When you see a Photography trend running wild, you should run, too! (Which direction?)
  • Why you should release the concern that everyone like what you do.
  • Success through GAPS! How to create gaps between you and other Photographers, and why it matters.
  • Send this link to EVERY Photographer who is new/getting into the business! The Waldens speak very specifically to them.
  • Learn to think of your customers as “cousins.” How will this guide your relationship with the people who pay for your livelihood?
  • This is profound: “If you have my heart, you have me.”  -Bev Walden
  • Why MUST every Photographer define their own unique style?
  • What does it mean to be a “Print Artist,” and how does that answer the question, “Do you sell digital files?”
  • How does a Photographer work with a lab to create beautiful work?

And that’s all for THIS EPISODE. You’ll notice that I abruptly end the conversation . . . stay tuned for the next episode where I finish my talk with Tim & Bev Walden.
