Months ago I wrote a post called Photographers and Money, We Should Talk. The blog post seemed to get a lot of traction and generated a lot of comments and questions.
Since then I’ve wanted to get my friend Zack Arias on the line and record a conversation about this stuff, because Zack’s made almost as many mistakes as I have, and has learned from them and spends his days making a living with the thing he loves. He is a man of integrity and, like me, a fan of the amateurs and anyone trying to do this for a living, whether that’s full-time, part-time, or some time in between. Between his chaotic schedule and my travels it’s taken 5 months to make this happen, but sat down this morning and had a conversation. I recorded it. Skype dropped us a couple times and the sound has some flaws, but I hope you’ll sit down with us and listen to this 55 minute conversation about money. Even more, I hope you’ll learn something, or be encouraged to make some changes. Getting your house in order financially, running a business, trying to do this for a living, it’s not easy – but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Zack Arias is a full-time photographer from Atlanta, Georgia, the author of Photography Q&A, and his blog can be found at DEDPXL.com
If this conversation stirs something in you, I’ve written two books – VisionMongers, Making a Life and a Living in Photography, and How To Feed A Starving Artist – I wrote both to serve photographers wrestling with the business and financial stuff. I hope they help.
We’re all in this together. I might not have the answers, but I can try and I’d love to help if I can – comments are open if you’ve got a question about what Zack and I talked about, or perhaps something that never made it into the coversation.

Here is a lightly-edited MP3 of the presentation recorded by Lloyd Davis. Thank you very much, Lloyd!
There should be some video of the talk up next week. If you’re following along with the talk, here are the slides from the handout:

Here is a loose outline of Infrastructure for Anarchists from my notes.
I’ll be doing a hexayurt building workshop at
the Temporary School of Thought on Thursday 8th of January 2009.
On Friday the 9th, I’m going to do “Avoiding Capitalism for the Next 4 Billion“ which will be based on Soft Development Paths and The Unplugged. I could have titled the talk more carefully, but it captures the essence of the concept for this audience, I think.
It’s free, all are welcome, I hope you can come!
