Are you struggling to understand all of the photography elements that make a great photo?

  • Do I use Leading Lines or Rule of Thirds?
  • Is it “natural light” if I light a match?
  • Do I really need to buy Photoshop?

You need to get the “big picture” to put it all in context.

Let me help you make sense of it all. I’ll show you how to start with your creative vision and turn it into a finished photo that makes you smile. I can help you see the path from idea to completion and share tips, reviews and discounts to help you get the most out of the tools at your disposal.

Introducing The Photo Flunky Show

The Photo Flunky Show launches this week on Wednesday, February 10, 2016. It's a new podcast by me to discuss issues facing photographers and bloggers. I hope you'll check it out and share it with your friends. I'm going to post a new episode of The Photo Flunky Show three times each week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10:00 AM Eastern Time. My initial desire was to run five episodes per week, but I discovered that just isn't feasible right now. Combined with the blog posts, creating new videos and working on some training materials, I'm really staying busy with William Beem Photography. That's pretty cool for me. The shows are fairly short by most weekly podcast standards. I'm trying to keep them roughly between 10-15 minutes. Of course, I want your feedback to help build the direction of the show. I toyed with the idea of doing a Q&A show. That may end up being a segment of the show or I could make one of the weekly episodes dedicated to questions. I'm open to ideas and would love to know what kind of things you want to hear on the show. More information on the show and my podcasting gear at Introducing the Photo Flunky Show.
