4 Ways to use Video
in Your Photography Business
Date posted: March 27, 2016



1. In the sales room:
the best way to start of your in-person sales session is with an Animoto video. Include all the images from the client's session and offer the slideshow in your upper tier packages or as a bonus at targeted price points.

2. On social media:
Why settle for showing an image or two when you can show off a larger body of your work with a video slideshow. Post videos on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and show off your work in style.

3. Behind the scenes:
Capture some quick BTS video clips during your next session. No need to stress over a second video camera. Your mobile phone video will be just fine but just make sure to hold the phone horizontal for more impact. Mix your BTS clips with sneak peeks from the session and share on your social channels.

4. Introduce yourself:
Create an about me video or a video studio tour. Post these videos on your website and share on social media.

How to Get Ready for ALL of the Engagements that Happened this Christmas
Date posted: December 29, 2014



We have what you need to help those newly engaged.

elegantZINE is a 12-page magazine styled booklet for professional photographers to give prospective couples. This overview of how the processes will work also touches on pricing, sessions, wedding style as well as several spots to feature stunning wedding photography.

30% OFF elegantZINE
Only $87.50


Photographers from all over the country tell me "I can't find customers who are willing to invest in quality portraiture for their weddings. They spend money on the food, the flowers, the dress but yet they don't want to invest on the only thing that will be left after their wedding day is only a memory... the photographs"

One of the great things about this new magazine is that it educates your clients on the importance of the wedding photographs as well as the importance in choosing the right photographer. We want to help you place your best foot forward and the perfect way to do so is with professionally designed marketing and sales pieces. Remember, you can't attract the type of clients who are willing to invest in professional photography if your not willing to invest in yourself.

Plus, with all the time you will save in copywriting and design you can focus on what matters most... your photography.
  • the text is already written
  • you just need to edit your studio info
  • it's professionally designed
  • add your own photos and get it printed
  • don't want to print, there's a link for a digital publishing platform


What are you waiting for?

FEATURED drop-o-holic
Clouds
Date posted: November 04, 2014



We wanted to feature one of our favorite drops, CLOUDS! These clouds were hand painted with real paint and have a rich texture to them. There are 2 designs: DISTANT and MORNING to choose from. Morning has a bit more cloud coverage.

Both designs are available in 52"x72" and 52"x96". Beth finds it easier to "sweep" a drop with the longer 92" length. To sweep, Beth simply positions the drop so the lower portion is flat on the floor.

The clouds are placed on the drop so they work well with a client heights from babies to seniors, leaving room to stand in a cloudless sky. It's really nice for clouds to cooperate with you when shooting "outdoors".

NEW Vinyl Backdrops
Date posted: October 27, 2014



I get bored easily with the same backdrops and need a constant new supply. You could say I'm a little addicted. For years I've been making some of my own drops from paint or found objects and I have always thought photoDUDS products would make great backdrops. Now we do. Introducing drop-o-holic vinyl backdrops! Each design is custom created and I test each one to ensure it will enhance your photos. No second rate designs! If a design won't flatter the subject, it is fixed or not sold. You won't believe how many samples I have tweaked, reworked or rejected because I didn't like how they looked in the final photos.

drop-o-holic drops are NOW available in the photoDUDS store! We are working on a website to showcase LOTS of designs. But while we are working on that, we couldn't wait to make some of our drops available to our loyal photoDUDS friends!

On SALE now! Prices start @ $60.
Most drops are available in TWO sizes: 72" and 96"

Plans For Success In The World Of Baby Photography
Date posted: October 16, 2014



Baby and newborn photography can be a real challenge for many reasons - logistics, timing, posing, lighting and planning are just a few of the hurdles we have to overcome. Not to mention the sheer responsibility of handling someone else's brand new pride and joy!

Being successful in the genre of baby photography isn't just about the latest props, cute hats or fancy backdrops - sure, they have a part to play but real success comes from focusing on the passion and art behind what you do.

To find out more about all this, Nigel Merrick, the founder of Zenologue sat down with renowned photographer Beth Forester to ask her about the baby photography side of her business, and to learn how baby plans can help with the marketing and sales.

Here are some of the great topics we talked about during our chat in this episode:
* Beth's initial inspiration to become a professional baby photographer...
* What defines a photographer's style and approach...
* Working with the undeveloped personality of a baby...
* The difference between "prop-centered" and "baby-centered" photography...
* The images that people often buy most of...
* Creating a brand and positioning yourself in the marketplace...
* The importance of loving what you do...
* The "ages and stages" of young babies and children...
* Thoughts about who your target market is...
* Dealing with your local competition...
* The importance of placing a proper value on yourself and your work...

Pay attention at the end,
Beth gives a code for

Tired of losing customers?
Get help NOW.
Date posted: January 30, 2014



Let's face it, in today's "instant" world people seem to be having their children photographed more frequently. And because they are having their children photographed more often they seem to be searching for more discounts and deals on photography. So how do we combat this problem and keep from losing our clients to the cheaper studio down the street?

We all know that it's cheaper, easier, and more effective to retain existing customers than it is to acquire new ones. Let's face it... newly acquired customers generally require more "hand-holding" throughout the portrait process. They require more time spent on the phone, more time spent on eduction about clothing and styling and they require more time in the sales room. In comparison, your existing customers aren't as price-sensitive as a new consumer. They already know your prices and the costs of quality portraiture. They have already been educated about what to wear and what to expect out of their session. They know the sales process and, quite frankly, they trust you.

So what is the answer to this problem? I believe it's "differentiated marketing." The idea is to direct your marketing efforts and special deals to those clients who will yield the biggest return: your existing clients. Think about it... most studios try attracting new clients with discounts and special offers. They are luring comparison price-shoppers. These price-shopper are generally are a cheaper clientele who are more difficult to deal with and who are more likely to leave for the next deal. Why should we offer discounts to new clients rather than our loyal clients?

In our studio we have created a loyalty program called the "Circle of Friends." I designed it to reward our best customers, keep them returning to the studio time and again and to make it easy for them to refer new clients to us. It's a win-win for me and for the client. Clients gain entrance into the Circle of Friends program when they reach targeted sales totals within a calendar year. Entry into the program entitles them to a free session and discounts throughout the year. Plus they earn bonus bucks for every dollar they spend. The more they spend the more they receive. Thus, I am rewarding my best clients and giving them discounts and incentives to return time and again. Plus, I know that it's these loyal clients who are more likely to refer my studio to their family and friends.
