its funny how many calls we get from people who like the look of our website and comment on the simplicity of it, we had a bride call and book with us because our site was the easiest to navigate, and hopefully because she liked our work. But I'm a firm believer that your website can make you or break you with clients that are searching who don't know anything about you. We also run a web design company if any of you are interested I'm sure we can hook you up, we've done a few sites for videographers and photographers in the area but check out www.strillogyproductions.com

I know I've been to it, that' the problem of typing so early in the morning. But anyway, so, it's cool if I just put my banner on it? :}

"How many people on here are where they are as they have been inspired or learned from the work of others?"

I hear you pat, but inspiration is one thing, blatant plagiuarism is another. There was one particular company who i was shooting stills with (i was doing stills,and they were doing video)

They didnt know i originally came from a video background, but they had a list of shots from a variety of different sources. Whle they were sorting out teh shots, i distinclty overheard them discussing how a particular scen was shot based on a sample they had seen.. I just kept quiet and pretended to not hear them, but the fact remains that thre are people out there who do this.
Another time i was shooting a 4 cam monster of a wedding and my 3 operators were baffled as to why the photogs assistant kept hanging around with a notepad...
Looking up at the LCD of any given camera, i decided to go up and see what he was doing.. i came up to one of my boys, and i looked over this assistant's shoulder to find that he'd been making a list of shot settings (with notes ion environemnts and lighting conditions) as he could see it on the cameras LCD... Further investigatoins showed that this photography company also provided video services...

Now this is the lowest of the lowball, and down here, it seems that its a prominant way of getting ahead.. or so they seem..

as for demos, im actually watermarking all my work and sending demos via email to most, but i am looking into a secure passworded theatre area where i can allow clients to gain access and where i can change the password each week
