More blog action...

Apr 28, 01:11 AM · from the mouth of Jim

It’s like that from a bad geek porno – hotter, steamier, wild blog action! K, so maybe not like that, but go check out our new blog Asante Photography… The Dialogue.

So, yeah, it’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to participate. Hopefully I’ll be seen a tinier bit more. For those that don’t know, the reason is that I’m now self employed. The evil company that I worked for after Maxtor had another round of layoffs and I was on it. This was quite alright IMO since they were burning me out like a candle in a forge. So, I’m now entering the next chapter of my career aspirations: to be a starving artist. :)

We’re frantically scrambling to get a studio location and everything into gear for this season so that I can go full time and see what happens. We think that, while it won’t be easy, we’re positioned to make the business a viable form of income. Our largest competitor (who’d been the brand name in Longmont for 32 years) has retired and all the wolves are moving in. We have some pretty good footing in the area and think we’re positioned to take a large portion of the open market share.

Anywho, hope the rest of you are good!

    Jimmy lives!

    I’m glad the whole losing-your-job thing has opened up new opportunities and improved your overall happiness. I’m sure Asante can only benefit from your undivided attention. Besides, your pics are way more interesting than the Curtis Studio ones I’m used to. That trainyard thing on the blog was especially cool!

    Small side question – do you have to get special permission from people to put their pictures on the web like that? Not that you don’t make them look super hot. Roar.

    I agree, losing your job is a pretty awesome thing considering. Just make sure you scrimp a bit with the money and don’t give up too early. You guys can make it I’m sure. Just don’t forget the patience. ;-)

    Hehe, thanks… yeah – we do. But we do. :) All of our contracts include model releases, so we’re allowed to use their images for any type of promotion, peer review, etc.

    Hooray for Jimmy!

    Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve been able to participate too.

    Anyway, I’m so excited for your new endeavors! I hope you get that studio space. That’ll be totally sweet. ‘Course, you know you’re going to LIVE there once you move in. Typical of new business owners, as far as I understand. But I’m sure you’ll do great! Can’t wait to come out there and see it!
