business podcast for creative professionals

Business Tips for Creatives is a project two years in the making. Two years is probably 22 months too long, but alas, it is live! Episode 7 is going live tomorrow and we are excited for the future of this podcast.

From Nick- “Fall of 2013 I started full-time self-employed with my company 29 Pixel Studios. Before that, starting 2003, I’ve been doing creative services as a side hustle. Starting with nothing, growing to out earning my ‘job-job,’ making through the great recession in stride and now hiring staff, I’ve seen a lot! Staying in the black all this time, I’ve never shied away from teaching how I’ve done it. Let’s face it, artist would rather create than plan a budget.”

The #1 goal behind Business Tips for Creatives is offer short, easy to understand business tips for (artist) entrepreneurs looking to earn $25,000 – $250,000.

To accomplish this we will interview creative professionals, picking their brain for great advice. Nick will give you a behind the scenes look at how he has run his business and insight to those decisions. Rounding out the arsenal of information will be accountants and lawyers giving the ‘official legal advice.’

If you are a creative professional and would like to be on the podcast please email suggestions@businesstipsforcreatives.com. Or if there is a creative professional that you think is just crushing it in life and want Nick to interview, shoot us an email!

  • If you prefer creating vs researching which business structure to use.
  • When new camera information wins against reading different retirement plans.
  • Taxes and insurance? “Um, we will think about that later.”
 This business podcast for creative professionals is here for you!

This podcast serves you, the listener! Do your part in getting rid of the ‘starving artist’ stigma. The more subscribers we get, the more ratings we get, the more we will be able to produce content for you!

Now offering Dance Studios a new way of doing things.

For years 29 Pixel Studios has produced traditional Dance Studio Photography; the style many dance studios are accustomed to. Parents order prints of a traditional pose, lighting is fairly even making those colors pop and we see that smile. Occasionally, with older dancer we might throw in a contemporary pose with more dramatic lighting. However, when we do those contemporary poses, the big concern is, “What if grandma doesn’t like this contemporary pose where the dancer isn’t looking at the camera?” Well 29 Pixel Studios is now offering Dance Studios a new way of doing things.

Multiple poses, contemporary and traditional, fun and exciting lighting; all digitally delivered to the parents. Parents and Dance Studios have the rights, letting them print wherever they choose! Digital images also means the ability to post the images online, encouraging families to tag your studio generating traffic for the recital and the studio.Dance Studio Photography

Wedding photographers have been doing this for YEARS.

It takes on average, an 8-hour day of nothing but ordering prints the tradition way. This time could be spent editing multiple photographs for the kiddos!

In this scenario, the Dance studio will hire 29 Pixel Studios. No money exchanges hands between the parents and 29 Pixel Studios.

Delivery of the photos is easy; sent via a link, all of the images will be available to view, download, or even purchase at ZERO mark up through SmugMug. The link can be shared to families through email, a newsletter, or even Facebook. Parents can download the high resolution pictures from the site, as well as a release that will allow them to print the photos anywhere they would like.Dance Studio Photography, kansas city

If you have to pick one photograph, of course it will be the smiling kid looking at the camera. Let’s pick all of them from now on!

SEA LIFE Arizona Sea Turtle Rescue Video

29 Pixel Studios was honored to work with the fantastic crew of SEA LIFE Arizona to create a Sea Turtle Rescue Video! SEA LIFE’s message is clear: BREED, RESCUE, PROTECT and this video certainly captures the RESCUE element.Videography for Sea Turtle Rescue underway!
Cora was hit by a boat and rescued by the Georgia Sea Turtle Center. It was determined that this young Green Sea Turtle was unreleasable to the wild. Thankfully SEA LIFE Arizona stepped in to give her a permanent home where she will be cared for and serve as an ambassador for the endangered species.

29 Pixel Studios creates video commecial for SEA LIFE ArizonaIf you are in the Phoenix area, you can visit Cora in person. Swing into the theater room and I believe the video I produced is playing in a longer form story of her journey, but for now you can see the highlights here:

 

29 Pixel Studios creates video projects like these to help organizations convey important messages, and reach their customers in a personable way.

Update; December 13, 2016.

From Nick- First and foremost, Cora is getting HUGE! She looks so healthy and happy. I got to see some video footage of her and have to say, it was like seeing an old friend. Second, 29 Pixel Studios was fortunate enough to film a video project for NICE and the Kansas City Airport. The final video (here) was shown at a fund raiser where one of Southwest’s VPs was the keynote speaker. I made it a point to meet with him and personally thank him for the culture he has at Southwest. It’s important to share when a company goes out of their way to treat you right. Hopefully, we at 29 Pixel Studios can accomplish a sliver of what they have!
