#DTBookclub: starting something new! Since I’m really not shooting photos anymore for a living, aside from shooting with my wife, I thought I would start sharing valuable things that help me in my life and current career, running marketing and community at @wearepicr. One of those things that helps me is reading, and I’ve made a commitment to read 50 books this year! Have you ever read that many boos in a year? Sounds daunting but I’m up for the task. I’ll be posting about which books I’m reading every week and talking a little about them and how they’re helping me solve some issue or get ahead in my life. Right now, I’m involved in a lot of selling at my job... that is, moving people to transition their photography business to our software platform. It’s somewhat unfamiliar territory for me. It’s common to think marketing and sales are the same, but as I’m learning, these two things are vastly different, regardless of how related they are (and I’ve learned how much I truly love the former). Since selling can feel so unnantural to me, although I know the importance of it, I picked up To Sell is Human” by Daniel pink. So far, an incredible paradigm shift on what selling is and how it’s much different in this century than it was in the 20th, rectifying many of my difficulties with it. I should finish the book today, so I’m looking for recommendations... if you have a book that has truly help you move forward in your life or think differently, comment it below and I will check it out! I’ll be sharing the books I choose to read through the tag #DTBookClub. Share your recs! 🔽📖🔽
Hello this is @derekman_ on my second week of takeover. I’ll be sharing my project Close to Home, which looks at the housing situation in Hong Kong.
Behind the scene: entrances to SUV-divided flats take on many guises. .
Close to Home looks at the housing market in Hong Kong, exploring the lives of those caught in the struggle between the human need for shelter and the commercial need for growth – a situation that resonates worldwide.
By showing the up-and-coming private estates, the oldest and newest social housing, showrooms displaying the perfect flats, estate agents desperately selling up land, and the gates behind which ultra wealthy homes sit, the work weaves together a vision of a housing future that is recognisable globally, placing the lives of the people caught in this tension of the commodification of homes back into the wider social context.
This project was commissioned by @OpenEyeGallery and first shown at @LookPhotoFestival.
2018 is def the year where Saturday comes and instead of thinking “Where am I going out tonight” I’m thinking “I can’t wait to get home and watch British Bake Off tonight.” 🥧🍰 Have a great weekend guys!
