Pancake Session: J&M Holiday Gift Guide for Photographers

Happy Thursday!!

And welcome to Pancake Day! Today, we have a double stack order lined up for you. First, you can check out this holiday gift guide for photographers that Justin put together full of all of our favorite goodies. We get questions ALL the time about what people can buy the photographer in their lives. Well whether you’re looking for a t-shirt about sad film or the top of the line point & shoot, we’ve got your answers! Maybe the most exciting thing on there you might notice is that our J&M LIVE chat is now available for purchase & download! The download will be ready next week, but that means this week we get to run a pre-sale special for you so you can grab it at a super low price! Whether you saw the live chat, the replay, or haven’t gotten to check it out yet, grab your own copy so you’ll have it to reference all this coming year and beyond. I may be biased, but I’d say it’s the perfect gift for the up and coming photographer in your life! :)

And after you check all that out, you can head over to the Shoot to Kill podcast for your second helping, where Justin & I just recorded an entire podcast with the wonderful Phil & Mindy (“Phindy”) Thornton all about authenticity in your work and your business. We get really honest in this one about some things we’ve learned and had to deal with this year. Trust me, you don’t want to miss it!

We hope you enjoy!!
