March floods

I would like all of you, for a moment, to contemplate a world without images – without the photographs and the many arts that enrich our experiences – and the next time someone gives you a very reasonable price for their time and creativity don’t tell them they are charging too much. Be grateful that they are willing to live the lifestyle (which these days is often shaky at best) that allows them to put their time into their art – delight in and support that choice!!

I recently had someone tell me that my quote, my creative fee was too much for a proposed job – when the quote I gave was half of what I would ‘normally’ charge. So here is my question – was your salary cut in half? And how well would you be living if it had been?

Until you acknowledge and accept that creatives, too, must be making a ‘good’ living for the economy to improve, it will continue to lumber along as it is. We are an important and necessary part of the cycle. Theatre, film, music, art, photography … they are a source not only of entertainment, but of joy. Just remember that, and the image of today’s world without pictures. They are everywhere and in everything we do.

Support your own quality of life by supporting us!

If this resonates with you – then repost it on your wall and in your blog so more will see it and THINK.

We, the creative people in your lives, realize that in a tight economy our art … music … film … photography may not be the first priority on your spending list. But consider the joy we bring as we light up your lives with wonderful sound and beautiful visuals. Remember how that joy expands to bring even more joy into your life.

Then remember that this is also how we make our living, think how much you truly appreciate what we do, and then think twice before you ask us to do it for almost nothing.

We love to be appreciated and by paying us what we ask, you truly do value and appreciate us and the quality of what we bring to your lives. –C.M.

What’s it like in the world of editorial photography these days? Well, a photo I took for the New York Times a year or two ago just showed up in the Boston Globe earlier this month. Go see.

I love getting compliments. But I find them by accident on line. Found this one on a blog called “The Wild Reed”. Here is the link.

Rachel commented in her Dreamscapes blog that so few couples have ‘it’ – the walking on air magic that everyone dreams of.

This isn’t a typical wedding photo, but it has ‘it’ and has always been one of my favs.  The couple sneaking away from the crowd after the ceremony to spend a few moments together.Lana011-4
