Jennifer Dery writes to us today with two uses for our Perfect Modern album templates...one coffee table book and one little 5x5 Finao peel-and-stick album.
Jen says, "I like that the designs are so simple and clean and classic, but the fact that the layouts run as Photoshop actions sealed the deal for me. I have never included albums with my services in the past, despite the fact that I know they would be a good addition to my product offerings. The Perfect Modern album templates have changed my mind...not only are beautiful, but they are fast and easy for someone like me who does not have a single 'designer' bone in my body. Thank you!"
We hear this all the time: clean and simple album designs + actions to create them = painless album sales
The formula is simple.
clients you love + photography you are excited about + doing it your way = happy photographer
We think a shift should be made in photography. A happiness shift. You likely got into photography because you love taking photographs. And then the reality of making a living at it started to creep in, and you became bound to jobs you didn’t really want to do, because you needed the money. We’ve been there, and yep, it stinks.
Doesn’t the life of a photographer sound so fabulous? Someone pays me a few hundred bucks to take a few pictures in a dream location and I just get to edit them in an afternoon and Netflix the rest of my day away.
If only that were the reality!
Thinking back to the beginning of my photography career, I was a little haphazard. I would figure something out in relationship to my business, which would cause me to stumble into something else that needed to be done.
