Scott Voelker Interviewed by Roy Barker an Australian Photographer

Well...things just keep happening that I thought were never possible. I just did an interview with a photographer from Australia, Roy Barker.

Roy wanted to do this call for his subscriber list of over 4,000 people. He felt that my story would be inspirational to new photographers just getting started. So..I agreed!

I have to say I was a little nervous knowing that this interview will be listened to by 1,000's of people. Who would have known I'd be doing this 10 years ago.

I hope you enjoy the call and see that I am just a regular guy that took a chance. If I can do it anyone can. I mean it!

Hey Everyone,

Here's a call I recorded during a Tele-Seminar with our first group of NewPhotoBiz 1.0 owners. I posted a small section where we discussed a few different ways of showing proofs to your clients. I talk about which methods work and the ones that don't.

Our business was built on the way we deliver our proofs to our clients. After listening to the call, you can have the same success by just following what has worked for us.

I hope everyone enjoys the call.
