I often have my photography students ask how they can get a better presence on social media. Even if you aren't computer savvy and don't really care for social media, truth of the matter is that if you want to get your name out there-you gotta be a fan. Doesn't mean you have to be on it 24/7, but you need to have a presence. Once good way to manage your sites is Hootsuite. It lets you schedule your posts so you don't have to be on the computer all the time doing it.

But take a look at this article, I think it has lots of good info!

I Love Collaborating With Other Artists!

I had a really great shoot with Cheyenne of Phoebe’s Closet and Jordan of Jordan Nicole Makeup Artistry. The goal of the shoot was to show off some of Cheyenne’s clothing designs and Jordan’s makeup creations. We had a great time in the studio putting together different looks, and shooting them!
I love collaborating with other artists, and seeing what kind of results a creative team can put together.

Here are some unedited shots of what we did yesterday:

Nashville Visual Artists- Dane Carder

On a very cold morning, I went to Dane Carder’s studio in the Chestnut Building in the Wedgewood-Houston area. The building has no heat, but Dane’s studio was kept warm by a small space heater. I was distracted from the cold, however, from all the history that was in his space. Paintings of soldiers stacked against walls, their haunted and blurry faces staring back at me-blurry like a memory and haunting like one too. Talking to Dane about his work made me understand it much more, and also realize how relevant the work and its theme are to all of us.
