easy to use collage template to impress the most discerning clients
Are you looking for a creative way to display a host of images on your wall without breaking the bank? Jennifer of Jennifer Lee Photographee used one of our collage templates to make an impressive display that clients love! She shares, "I used the "Album on a Wall: Best of Both Worlds" storyboard template from the Design Aglow store to create a photo collage canvas. In Photoshop, I resized the template from 20x48 to 20x60 to fit a narrow wall I have in my studio. I hand placed my favorite images from the wedding to tell the story of the day. I printed it at my favorite canvas lab, and I use it for display in my studio.
I love how this allows my clients to showcase their favorite photos in a unique way. I tell stories through my photographs, so it's hard to pick just one, or a few, for print. This is a no-brainer for clients who want to display several of their photos, plus it's a cinch to make! The template is also versatile, so if my client has a particular size they want to print for their wall, I can change the template to fit their needs.
Every time a client comes into the studio, they stop to look at this and comment about how pretty it is! I have had a lot of clients love the option of putting their photos on the wall instead of an album. They can see their photos in a story-telling collage every day, instead of being hidden away in a book on the coffee table."
Thanks for sharing, Jennifer, and enjoy your $75 shopping spree on us!

The iPhone camera is an incredibly powerful tool. After learning a few basics, you can start practicing your own skills with what I like to call a “creative exercise régime.” First of all, l always hold my phone horizontally with two hands. I form a "C" with my left thumb and forefinger and tuck the phone into it so it rests on my hand with my middle finger holding it up along the back. Then with my right hand I form a similar backwards C with the phone against the palm of my hand and use my right thumb to take the picture. By having a steady hold on the phone, I eliminate shake. The result is a sharper image.
This past March, my family and I took a road trip from Marietta, Georgia to Charleston, South Carolina. The trip fell during the first few days of spring, and we all dreamed of warmer weather and a nice change of scenery! Our trip started on a Friday and ended the following Monday, but despite it’s brevity, it was an amazing experience!
If you run a photography business, you may feel like you spend 10% of your time actually creating images and the other 90% juggling endless administrative tasks. And when you’re focused on taking care of your clients, taking care of your business can get pushed to the back burner. But…that needs to stop. Organization isn’t a luxury. A streamlined studio gives you a solid foundation on which to build a successful business. So go ahead and make those brass tacks a priority. Here are the ducks you should get in a row, like, yesterday.
