No Time to Relax (by Jonahpod. Super assist)

Starting today, the e+d team has a well-deserved two week break to work in the studio. But just because we aren’t on a shoot doesn’t mean it’s time to relax and put our feet up. Quite the contrary, in fact. It means catching up with bills, invoicing, cleaning and repairing equipment, making phone calls, website and portfolio updating, printing, Gallery Stock submissions, retouching, organizing the studio..the list goes on and on. There are a countless minute details that must be attended to when running a fast-moving business, so there’s never a dull moment with this team.

The majority of the country has the day off today to celebrate Veteran’s Day. Not us. We’ll be hard at work, getting a head start on a few important projects that must completed before we’re back on the road with non-stop shoots. Our first and most important mission of the week is updating our websites. Both sites currently use Flash, but with the recent surge towards HTML5, it’s time to make the switch. This means transferring content between the new and old sites, as well as making the sites phone and tablet ready.

Also, we recently gained admittance to showcase our work on Gallery Stock, so there’s a never ending flow of submissions, selections, and retouched final images that are transferred between us and the GS team. Each shot is hand selected by the GS team, sent back to us for retouching, and then uploaded to their site. Doesn’t sound like a substantial amount of work, but when there are over 800 images waiting in line for approval, it can be quite a long process.

Most importantly, though, time working in the studio means we can take a deep breath, assess our recent weeks on the road, discuss new ideas and concepts to shoot, and ultimately get back to shooting what the e+d team really wants to shoot for themselves. But before any of that can happen, David needs to finish invoicing. Check out the mobile command center below. Have a great week, everyone!
