So, you want to start a photo business…
Excellent! Will it be a mad whirl of fame, fortune and glitterati?
Or will it be a money-suckin’, nail-bitin’, cuss-mutterin’ festival of frustration?
We’re all about preserving your manicure and linguistic decorum, so welcome to our new series, Photojojo’s School of Photographical Bidnezz!
Here’s Part 1: a list of photo biz pros and cons to help you decide whether running your own studio would make you happy… or crazy?

That’s why we came up with this photo block puzzle. It’s a little like our Photo Blocks, but squarer and bigger and harder to solve, and with a bunch more photos.
It’s a set of blocks we’d proudly display on our coffee table any day of the week.

Snape. Malfoy. Hogwarts. Horcrux.
If none of those words make any sense to you, you’re not a Harry Potter fan.
The rest of you know that in the Wizarding World, people in photographs don’t stand still. They move, wave at you, wander out of the frame for a cup of tea…
In honor of the new Harry Potter movie (eeeeee! we can’t wait!) we’re teaching you how to make your own moving pictures.
It’s so easy, even Muggles can do it!
p.s. We just snatched up the much anticipated Eye-Fi PRO Wireless Memory Card for the Photojojo Shop. Hooray for RAW uploads!
Forget photosynthesis. Leaves are for photo-projects-thesis!
Grab a photo and a leaf, and in few simple steps you can turn everyday foliage into a unique silhouette portrait of someone you love.
Simple and elegant, leaf silhouettes look great in a frame or on a book or a card.
So, as Biff would say, “make like a tree and get to work on a silhouette leaf portrait!”
What shall we do with a broken camera
Fill it with dirt and put a plant in it
Click the big link to see how to do it
p.s. If you didn’t click that 1st link, you gotta see it. It’s like Michael Scott singing sea shanties. Plus it’s from a show called “Hootenanny!”
p.p.s. Hey U.S. peoples, our guide to photographing fireworks may come in handy this weekend!

And now even photographs are joining in the smallness, thanks to the magic of biaxially oriented thermoplastic polystyrene (that’s Shrinky Dinks to you).
You can print photos on plastic using your inkjet printer, and shrink them down small enough to make into necklaces, fridge magnets, earrings, or practically anything you can think of.
See? Just like that, the world is your bivalve mollusc of the family Ostreidae! *
Invisible ink, spy cameras, secret passageways… if it’s incognito, we love it.
Our yen for all things surreptitious and sneaky has inspired us to craft this clansdestine camera case out of a hollowed-out book.
It’s highly useful for tricking enemy spies into believing you are a harmless bookworm instead of the undercover photo ninja that you are.
Pull your fedora down, tighten your trenchcoat, and let’s get secretive.
There was a fair lass from New York
p.s. Bjork not mandatory. You can put photos of anyone you want in this postmodern freeform amoeba-shaped bulletin board/picture frame.
Water stains. Ceiling tiles. All those pencils you stuck up there.
So many evils can mar your ceiling. But take heart, photo peeps!
Your ceiling’s not the boss of you.
Cover that water damage with a colorful mural, or slap a collage of fluffy clouds over those grimy ceiling tiles.
All ya need to make it happen are some photo Post-its and a stepstool.
Yessir, everything’s looking up!
p.s. Hey Chicago! Hey Milwaukee! Photojojo readers are gettin’ together to shoot pix. Check out the forum thread for dates/times/mucho bueno info!
Silver dollars, vinyl LPs, Oreos — So many of the best things in life are circle-shaped.
Isn’t it about time your picture collection got with the program?
Circularize your photos and show them off in a urban-chic constellation of modular cardboard rings.
Snappy-lookin’, expandable, and keeps a coupla paper towel rolls out of the landfill. What’s not to like?
