So my friend Chris Scott is on, it's going to be a little bit different, um, than some of the other podcasts where, where you've interviewed photographers because Chris, uh, and his wife actually don't live very far from me and Carl or Colorado Springs, but they own a swift galleries as well as um, in Chris. You can tell me more about this, but you also have this whole mission right now where you're trying to move people from shooting burn to in person sales, right? Yup, 00:50 Yup. Absolutely. So we, we run, um, it's a, the printmaker system, which is kind of our education side of things and a swift galleries, which is the tool itself that helps people, uh, well people helps photographers show their clients with their photos, will look like on their walls at the right size and then walks them step by step through an entire in person sales meeting. And we really kind of specialize in helping those shoot and burn photographers make the switch from shooting burden over to in person sales. That's awesome. Yeah. Yeah. And we do that through the podcast too, which is called the print maker podcast. 01:23 Perfect. And Chi, you've never met Chris before, right? 01:26 No, but I'm super excited when you told me what he was talking about. I just feel like that, um, Chris that, you know, I want to, what I, one of the things I want to learn is why you decided to make that, you know, one of your main things is teaching people how to do in person sales. But from my viewpoint, I just feel like that is a way to really change photographers lives and change it from something that they do on the side to something that they can do full time. So that's what I'm guessing you're gonna say, but I'm curious. So, 01:55 Ooh, interesting. Cause I might come at it from a different, a slightly different angle. So the reason that this is so, uh, that we're so passionate about this is because Adrian and I did run our own photography business for a number of years and we started out at a shoot and burn photographers. We made about $150 on average per session. And in our first year of switching to in person sales, we went from those hundred $50 average is $220,000 in that first year. And it was absolutely life changing for us. You know what I mean? It sounds overly dramatic. Like it changed her life. Snow. It did. There is, it's a completely different life when, um, you know, when you're kind of just scraping by to like, okay, we don't really have to worry about money. And we can really choose who we want to work with at this point.
