What is the most important thing you have learned since starting on zazzle? *
Design and marketing play an important part in selling photography-based merchandise. Pretty pictures are nice to look at, but customers are more prone to buy images if they're part of an attractive design. Even the best images in the most attractive designs won't sell if no one sees them. Customers need to be found and persuaded to purchase products. That old saying about, "If you build it, they will come," just doesn't work on the Internet.
Do you consider yourself an Artist selling art, or a Business person selling products which happen to be art? *
Both - every product contains art, even if it is not in my taste I will offer it for sale, since that is what the customers want
What do you enjoy most about zazzle? *
Its helped me evolve as an artist and as a merchant. I've developed a better appreciation for what makes an image interesting to someone beside myself. Art in of itself may be a wonderful thing, but it's better appreciated when purchased, and to do that one needs to acquire some business sense.
When working on zazzle you... *
need complete silence to concentrate
What is your favorite thing to do when not Zazzling? *
I like to go outdoors and walk. It can be a walk with the dog, a hike in the mountains, or a stroll out in the desert, perhaps along the banks of our local river. Nature grounds me, which is probably why I love to photograph it.
