Today on the show Casey discusses:

  • How he got his start shooting senior portraits
  • How the work he did in weddings lead to doing a job for ESPN
  • How he got the Canon gig
  • His process for putting together commercial video shoot crews
  • Pricing for commercial jobs

Enter Drawing for Free Music

Each week we will also give away a free song from Triple Scoop Music (a $60 value). All you have to do is tweet one of these two lines…

Hey @rondawson, the featured @triplscoopmusic artist this week on @crossingthe180 is NAME

or

Hey @rondawson, the featured @triplscoopmusic song this week on @crossingthe180 is NAME

Replace NAME with the name of the artist or the song. It doesn’t have to be the artist’s Twitter name, but if you DO find and include their Twitter handle, I’ll enter you twice! You have to enter the tweet exactly like this so that I know you’ve done it and because there’s no “e” in Triple Scoop Music’s twitter handle. Your best bet is to copy and paste. Do this throughout the week and on next week’s show I’ll announce the winner. You can do this every week until further notice.

Triple Scoop Music is also offering a discount on your next purchase. You gotta listen to the episode to find out the code.
