As a small business owner you know you have a lot on your plate. You’re a creative responsible for not only shooting, but conceiving a vision for your art. Purchaser of props, DIYer of designs, and editor of images. And that’s only the creative side. There’s The Business. Salesperson, Accountant, Scheduler. Designer of albums. And don’t forget education. There’s always more to learn.
The list goes on.
It’s all really rather intimidating for even those of us with the strongest of constitutions.
So when something comes along that helps make all those roles work together more efficiently, we sit up and take notice. Because when that all important crucial element of TIME is saved that means we gain. We gain the ability to make memories with our children. We gain money. We gain time to grow as artists.
That’s why we have mad love for ShootProof. It not only saves time, but does it stylishly.
First of all, ShootProof consolidates tasks: it shows proofs, creates and sends invoices, and collects order payments. Soon, it will also deliver contracts and other forms. And visitors that view your work? They’ll be sent emails automatically to remind them about sales, promotions, and gallery expiration dates.
And when those visitors to your ShootProof site fall in love with your work? They can place orders directly through the site and even pay online. The key here? The site makes money for you. So you can be doing other things like having an ice cream cone with your son. Or shooting a client. You know, the things that only YOU can do. Furthermore, you can choose to use one of ShootProof's professional labs to have the orders printed with just a few clicks.
What else do we love about ShootProof? It’s smart in the details. For example, a gallery’s owner can select which photos visitors to that gallery shouldn't be able to see (like a bride who doesn't want the "getting ready" photos to be seen by all of the wedding guests). That client can also create custom labels for each image in order to communicate to you what she would like done with that particular image. "Use in Parent Album" or "Retouch" could be some of the labels she creates.
Lastly, ShootProof does all these tasks with style. And we love good design. ShootProof has a clean and modern look. We also appreciate having choices in layouts. ShootProof does exactly that: it allows you to express your business’s particular brand through its offering of various layouts. Furthermore, you can select different intro pages, fonts, as well as include your studio's logo and colors. Your automated emails can also include your images, logo, and branding.
Saves you time. Makes your life easier. ShootProof really IS that assistant you’ve been longing for. Do yourself a favor, get it now and then celebrate with an ice cream cone with someone special you haven’t seen in awhile.

From a very early age I loved taking pictures and looking at them in magazines and books, but the art of photography captured my heart when I was a teenager, on my first overseas trip to Wales. From that point, I began shooting with a little film SLR and having my friend model for me. In college I took some digital photography and visual communication courses as part of my communication studies major, and decided to pursue a career in photography. I became a legal business and took my first paid client at age 20, and it's been quite a journey and adventure over the past nine years.
I secretly bought a mail-order 35mm camera when I was 15, and took lots of ordinary photos of animals and nature for several years. Although I majored in art and studied photography in college, my career started in marketing and advertising, from the client service end. Then I had the most beautiful baby, found my old camera and realized how much I love photographing people.
