    Like many said, he's a marketing genius. He comes across very genuine and sincere. He's not the best, but he's definitely good at what he dows and how he sells himself.

    Learned a few things I found interesting and a few things I feel they were talking about because they were 'supposed' to talk about. Overall, I don't feel I wasted my money!

    He was very cool, calm and collected. She was the biggest ball of energy I'd seen other than the brunnette friend that was sitting with me at the seminar. She was bouncing off the WALLS!!!

    it's highly annoying, I think. have your positive outlook all you want, but it goes a little too far when you're SO BLESSED THAT THERE WERE BLUEBERRY DANISHES AT THE DOUGHNUT SHOP THIS MORNING.

    and nobody wants to hear about her fucking husband 10x a day. He looks like a pillow biter, btw.

    I guess I take things in stride. all 4 of my friends and I that went to the Houston and Austin one think they weren't being too 'pushy' w/ their product. Yes, they talked about it. Yes, they advertised it... but thats why they're doing this.

    The aspect of their business and what kind of small things they do is the reason for the $100 I paid. And honestly, there were a couple of small things I can do as my business grows that could help me tremendously.

    I guess I take away what I want to take away from people rather than try to see everything they're about. Its good to be able to have selective understanding of subjects without getting caught up in the mushy shit. Business minded, yes. Helpful hints, yes. Talk about her husband and DJ all the time... who gives a shit.

    Oh, and you should have my blog on your reader too. :squint:

    i deal with people on a daily basis, and have grown a strong hatred towards the population in general. so, piddily shit usually bugs the hell outta me. :o

    i completely agree that they're both really impressive in the "self marketing" arena. Didn't she just pick up a camera for the first time a couple of years ago or something?

    I think there's 3 levels of popular photographers ... guys with awesome talent, amateurs with impressive natural skills, and people like DJ, her, becker, etc., that are good photographers, but likely have other people behind the scenes doing shit for them, and just spend the majority of their time marketing themselves. good for them, but it doesn't make them great photographers. anyone can grab a 5D + 85 1.2 and take a photo of a kid with a horrendously-small DOF, and make the average Joe ooh and aah.

    with that said, had their tour come to omaha, i probably would have gone as well. i would strongly consider telling DJ that i think he comes across as a douche on his blog. :rofl:

    maybe i'm just in a shit mood today? :o

    ya, she started the month I got married... October of 06. I'm sure DJ taking her under his wing didn't hurt either. She's successful because of her outgoing personality. DJ's blog does come across douchy... but he seemed very 'down to earth'. His business minded approach is amazing to me. People go their whole lives and don't think of shit to simplify their life... he's figured it out (somewhat) and he's not even 30. :dunno:

    I admire the achievement, not the person. :bigthumb:
