Before jumping head first into all the details, you need to organize the day in your head.

(get it? hitch?)
As a professional (and especially a business owner) in any field, it's part of your job to keep up with the latest trends and technology. Maybe you do a lot of your own research and, like most of us, are too busy to take time away from working for clients to further your own education.

Professional grade photography equipment is an integral part of any photographer's success.

In today’s demanding marketplace, customers want to get more for their money. We’ve seen it too many times, and you’ve probably experienced it: You scour the web for “reputable” companies offering great deals on the products or services you’re looking for, only to be nickled and dimed for a generic-at-best experience and hit over the head with extra fees. Soon you’re paying out the nose for what you thought was an all-inclusive service, and now your project is nowhere near what you were quoted (but you already signed the contract and it would be too much trouble to switch at this point). Sound familiar?
Well, MTI has good news. We’re here to combat these unscrupulous business practices, at least in the world of photography (but hey, a revolution has to start somewhere, right?) It’s like the Wild West out there: forget “best practices” — hidden charges and shady sales tactics are running rampant and you need to protect yourself!
