Get the Goods: PPA Webinar

I joined the Professional Photographers of America association last week and one of my gifts for joining the association was free attendance for Friday's "webinar," an online seminar by industry leaders for professional photographers. All you need to participate is a computer, high-speed internet connection and speakers. This one is called "Business Basics for Photographers," and it sounds like a great opportunity to get sorely needed business-sense in this creative field:

"Many photographers get into the business for the creative aspect…but it’s your business knowledge that will keep your dream alive and kicking. As photographers, you need to understand the business basics, especially when you’re starting out. And Ann Monteith, a leading authority on studio business management, has a good place for you to start learning these business basics.
