    An excellent idea, but impractical for many photographers. This speaks to the need of high level studio photographers — not those who shoot in a photojournalistic style and rarely use assistants, etc. I follow your principals, but I have never received a job because of them. I have received jobs because my work is better than amateurs/staff. How can this be conveyed?
    Also, PLEASE provide transcripts of your videos. Most of us who are over 30 prefer the written word. Much easier to scan and thus save time.

    Thanks Richard, I think your question how you can convey that you are better than others should be it’s own post. Let me work on that.
