What do you do when a client refuses to pay for freelance work? Al Jameson offers some advice.
“I consider myself a pretty computer illiterate person and I was really overwhelmed and intimidated when I first decided to design a website for my business.
I couldn’t afford an expensive graphic designer but I didn’t want to put something on the web that didn’t look professionally built. A friend of mine told me about Dripbook and after seeing her website she designed with it I was sold. It was very simple to design and upload everything that I wanted to show on my site.
I’m very proud and confident to send potential clients to my website, and it’s more than paid for itself by bringing in business from all the exposure my site gives me. Thanks Dripbook!" - Nick Manelos - Hair Stylist

“I’m often shooting self-assigned projects, at times to test various cameras, techniques, ideas, or to create some work for my portfolio. This time it was partially to see how low we could drive the production value and still net amazing images. Many of you creative types will understand that you’re sometimes asked to create world-class work with local newspaper budgets, so let’s see what we can do – Ed Wood style! Of course, I’m also a sucker for a pretty girl riding a bike in NYC. Thanks to everyone who helped me to make this happen: Wendy, Ed, Chris, and the wonderful Cristina who put on a smile while injured! ” - scottlowdenphotography

"For Great Expectations, Los Angeles based photographer janacruder imagines the domestic life of the iconic Barbie and Ken. In contrast to the suburban fantasy sold by the dolls from 1959 into the present, Cruder offers a portrait of marital loneliness and disillusionment. During a rough economic year, an unemployed Ken becomes a househusband, and Barbie pursues a career. Sporting her 1959 hairdo and fashions, the living doll notices to her dismay that her husband is forming an increasingly close bond with their neighbor, Joe. Here, the couple’s lives play out in a state of tense, wordless chilliness.” - featureshoot
