photos, tips, tricks, and thoughts from an avid amateur photographer




The PR requests are starting to roll in pretty regularly for the upcoming PMA show. I even got a phone call from Kodak today while I was giving a presentation. I’ve worked with PR firms before. In fact, I have even hired them to work for me. Seeing how poorly most of these meeting requests are formatted I can’t help but wonder whose standards are this low, the PR people, the clients or the press they are trying to reach.

    Sounds explosive

    The reason the Thomas PR PMA press note to schedule meetings is not descriptive is because we can’t reveal information ahead of time unless you under NDA.

    Here’s the latest Thomas PR press alert going out tomorrow to PMA press. Since all our PMA client products are now announced (with the final release going out tomorrow), we can now give more info to schedule meetings (which we couldn’t do before). It’s important for us to honor client release embargo dates, so we can’t reveal too much info before the actual announcement.

    Thanks for your understanding-

I'm an industrial designer and an avid hobbyist photographer. People are always asking me "how'd you do that?" So, I decided to create this site as a place to share my experiences and insights about photography, the gear and what it all means to me. I'm not sure if this site will make anyone besides myself a better photographer but I figure it's worth a try. Take a look around and let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by!
