creative photo proof display idea

Today's creative share comes from Meghan of Meghan Valentine Photography.  She writes, "I bought twelve 3 foot sections of 1/8 inch wire and braced it into a loop. Then hung it on a white hook that is screwed into the wall. I then got a pack of magnets from Hobby Lobby with a strength of 6 (this is needed to keep the photos on the wire). I printed off a bunch of 4x6 inch prints so that I had a variety of vertical and horizontal. I could fit 7 horizontal on one wire and 5 vertical on one wire. I like it because it is a fun and different way to display my work. It is also fun for clients to see their photos and their friends photos. I recently had an open house for my studio and everyone raved about it. I really love they way it can transform a rather large area in such a personal way. Clients love it, love it, love it. I just had an open house at my studio and everyone was amazed at how it turned out and how personal and fun it really is. The kids loved finding themselves and finding their friends." This is a fabulous do-it-yourself project! We suggest using a set of our proof borders to add an extra special touch to the photos. Thanks for the share, Meghan.  Enjoy your $75 gift certificate on us~

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.

Here’s a saying we find really annoying: “do what you love, and the money will follow. Umm, nope. If we asked every photographer out there if they are working hard, they would say yes. But if we asked every photographer out there if they are raking in the big bucks, many would say no.
