Emma Teal Laukitis pioneering her way into 2009

The Scott Dickerson photography website is rolling out some updates here in the new year. Looking to the upper right of your browser you’ll see a couple new links in the navigation options – Archive and News.

I’m excited to share the link to my growing online photo archive. This project is still young with only several hundred images online, but it is growing weekly now and I have big plans for its future. The main focus with the archive right now is editing photos from my work in Bristol Bay and getting them online. Stay tuned, lots more to come including online print ordering and rights licensing options. The archive, powered by photoshelter, has also proven to be a great help working with clients on image review and delivery.

Speaking of clients, who are my clients? Occasionally I’m asked what I do as a photographer. I don’t have a quick simple response to this question, but as of today I do have a news section on the website where curious minds can learn more about the business side of Scott Dickerson Photography. To start things off, I’ve posted a couple dozen little blurbs about somewhat recent publications and assignments. The list is not meant to be comprehensive and was mostly formed by digging through files for saved ‘tearsheets’ (samples of my published work). I expect this news reporting to evolve over time, but generally the goal is to share the business events around here.

Also new in the last couple weeks are links to my facebook profile, and twitter feed. I’m doing the social media, web 2.0 stuff and if you haven’t tried it yourself here’s another chance. Initially I shied away from these online social networking tools, now I’ve jumped in and it’s much better than expected. I hope you’ll take a moment to add me as a ‘friend’ on facebook and/or follow me on Twitter.
