Said Freeman, "The difference between typing an e-mail and writing a letter or memo by hand is akin to walking on concrete ver- sus strolling on grass. You forget how natural it feels until you do it." According to famed etiquette expert Emily Post, thank-you notes are a must following over- night visits, gifts received and in response to notes of condolence. Added Stephanie Roeder, card stylist for leading card and sta- tionery maker, personalized communications need- n't be daunting "Set up a commu- nications station with two sets of your favorite stationery, nice pens, personalized address labels and a booklet of stamps. Then, when the occasion arises, it's easy to send a thoughtful note." Her company offers hundreds of personalized cards and sta- tionery designs for any occasion. "There's no need to wait for a spe- cial occasion to connect with friends," Roeder concluded. "Sim- ply write anytime and say 'hi." Some people are born on third base and go through life thinking they hit a triple. -- Barry Switzer Surprise Guests! The other day I was just chillm' out, watching the birds, when a flock of robins dropped from the sky and into my yard. There were even some cedar waxwings mixed in.

Five Ways Hobbyists Are Making Money From Their Photos by Scott Baradell It used to be the case that if you wanted to make money from photography, there was only one easy method: sell your camera. That's not something you could do twice though, and it's not something you could do for profit. If you wanted to sell your pictures -- and you weren't a professional with a large portfolio and an even larger reputation -- then stock companies weren't interested, galleries closed their doors and publishing companies had a pile of form rejections ready to send you. Today however, the market has changed. Digital SLR cameras are now good enough to produce professional-quality images that are affordable enough for enthusiasts. Websites and blogs let photographers learn, experiment and exchange ideas quickly. And as the pictures have improved, a huge range of different channels have opened allowing people to sell their pictures to art lovers and clients as well as commercial and editorial users. Here are five ways hobbyists are making money from their photos: 1. Microstock. When iStockPhoto launched in May 2000, its inventory was free. Too high Contributors' earned nothing and traditional stock companies thought nothing of it. Today, with several millio,n images in its inventory, iStockPhoto charges prices of up to $15 per image and stock commissions reaching 40 percent for some photographers, iStockPhoto is owned by Getty, has tens of thousands of contributors, and has been copied by dozens of other microstock com,panies. The model is simp)le enough: anyone can contribute; prices are minimal (as low as a dollar an image); and buyers can do whatever they want with the photos, short of selling them. Although each image may generate just a few cents per sale, successful photos can be sold thousands of times, generating a steady income stream. Microstock has even launched a number of hobbyists into professional careers with top contributors such as Yuri Arcurs and Lise Gagn6 believed to be earning as much as $200,000 every year. Microstock might be the poor buyer's image resource but it's also the hobbyist's stock market. 2. Flickr. Making money out of microstock means shooting pictures that businesses want to buy. They might not be the sort of pictures that photographers want to create, however. Creative images tend to go up on Flickr where other photographers can comment on them, praise them and let others know they're there. As a result, the photo-sharing site has now become a place where Pruning roses Make pruning cuts just above an outside bud, so the new growth will develop outward.

World rights reserved, commercial buyers go to find the kinds of creative images they can't pick up on traditional stock sites. Toyota hired Icelandic art student Rebekka Gudsleifdottir to shoot a series of billboard ads after seeing her photos on the site, countless contributors have been approached by magazines as big as Maxim, and even Getty has now created a dedicated Flickr collection, produced by scouring the site for unconventional images and inviting photographers to contribute through a Flickr group. Flickr might be a photo-sharing site, rather than a photo-selling site, but it has become a place where creative photographers can market their images and make sales. 3. Photography Products. Both microstock and Flickr depend on the sale of licenses for digital images that buyers can use in almost any way they want. Zazzle, RedBubble and other product sites provide a way for photographers to use those images first, then sell the products on which the images appear. They turn photographers into designers as well as image-producers. Usually, that means putting the pictures on t-shirts, cards, calendars and posters although Zazzle will also print them on hundreds of different items, including shoes, skateboards and iPhone cases. The photographer can set a price that includes the cost of the item itself and the printing fee, then add a mark-up for the image. The site takes the order, prints the photo and ships the product. The photographer gets the profit. It's a system that relies on a creative product range, good marketing and the kind of image design that can build a loyal following. But it does turn hobbyists into image sellers without any of the costs of retail selling. 4. Blurb. There is one photography product, however, that's both more prestigious than any other and less suited to being sold next to the mugs and shirts usually found on product sites. Photography books allow photographers to sell their images to people who are out of wall space but still want to enjoy their pictures. Traditional publishing companies tend to be very choosy about the photographers they commission; books are expensive to produce and, especially if the photographer is unknown, hard to sell. But print- on-demand now allows people to create their own photography books, skipping the rejection slips of traditional publishers and putting their images into the hands of anyone who wants them. Like photography products, photographers are free to set their own price, adding to the costs of printing and shipping to create a profit margin. Blurb, a company that specializes in print-on-demand photography books, printed more than 1.2 million books in 2009, generating sales of over $45 million. 5. Art Fairs. For many photographers, there's only one thing more satisfying than seeing a customer walk off with a book of their photographs: seeing a buyer walk off with a framed print of one of their photographs. That's always been hard. Prints continued on page 13 Residential: Payment .'
