Come out to Coffy Cafe in Columbia Heights where we will have a casual photo discussion.

This month we will start the conversation discussing "Habits" good, bad, whatever. How we get into good ones and break the bad. How do we even identify the difference? Bring your thoughts on this topic or any others to another casual yet spirited conversation.

Please RSVP to

The business of commercial and architectural photography is an aspect that constantly requires attention. From estimating, licensing issues, invoicing issues, permits, project coordination and execution, intellectual property issues, all are important factors. Assignments require attention from preparation through delivery and beyond. It's important to communicate with the client and related location contacts throughout the process. It's equally important to include all of the services, fees and charges you might provide and they all appear on every estimate before the assignment is authorized.
