Get clear on WHO you are as a photographer. Dane Sanders and I are working together to give away free tuition to one of his fantastic Fast Track Roadshow Workshops. (Winner responsible for lodging, food, hotel.)

All workshop attendees get more than $2300 in comprehensive turnkey tools to make your business take off.

The workshop itself costs $750 and our winner will get this fee waived but STILL will receive the $2300 worth of free business tools. There are 10 cities to pick from, so chances are you live within driving distance.

I am NOT being paid to do this. Dane and I are working together on this because we both believe in helping people who want to earn a living at this great business we call photography.

I usually pick a winner for these things by simply randomly selecting one of my Twitter followers. But this is a special case. It’s an essay contest. Why? First, I want to make sure the winner is either already a professional photographer in need of coaching or who simply wants to improve their business acumen or, I want an aspiring professional who needs help getting started.

I also want to make sure I pick someone who will actually use the prize. It’s too valuable to go unclaimed. I’ll pick a winner and a runner up in case the winner cancels.

Visit Dane’s workshop page to find out what this is all about.

Then, do two things.

1) Make sure you follow me on Twitter – http:.// (I will announce the winner on Twitter.)
2) Send me an email to [email protected] and in 100 words or less, tell me why you need to attend this workshop and how you think it will help you.

I’ll pick a winner by September 7, 2009 so don’t delay.

Somebody’s going to get a great prize!
