Sponsored Post: Commission-Free Selling With ShootProof

Because online proofing solutions for photographers are so plentiful these days, providers of these services must work harder to differentiate themselves from the competition. Enter ShootProof, a photographer shopping cart whose business model makes it distinct. Their “no commission” policy allows photographers to keep ALL of their sales (a rarity with online gallery solutions). All of ShootProof's plans share the same features, meaning their least expensive plan is as functional as their premium plan. As far as storage goes, the ShootProof photographer just pays for photo space that they need, and can upgrade or downsize at any time. In short: at ShootProof, the buck stops at your monthly fee--no commissions, no set up fees, no extra storage or selling fees. Use this great calculator to figure out how much you could save!

 For prints and products, integrated fulfillment is available through the photographers' choice of BayPhoto, Black River Imaging or ProDPI (Design Aglow's preferred partner!). Photographers can also easily self-fulfill orders. Boutique packaging is available from each lab, and orders can be drop-shipped directly to their customer, “white labeled” to the recipient of the order. ShootProof contains the functionality to create different packages, promo codes, and price sheets for each event. Customize all sales features, such as sales tax and shipping rates, and accept credit cards through SSL processing or popular payment gateways like PayPal. ShootProof also offers comprehensive digital download fulfillment. Sell digital files (the photographer sets a price per download and/or for all images) or give downloads of free full-res or social media files. Shootproof's mobile interface offers flexible viewing, social sharing, and downloading of images.

Ultimately, ShootProof knows that photographers should choose what is best for their business on a client-by-client basis. The options to self-fulfill or use a lab for orders, select a storage level while maintaining the same level of service, and set their own prices & policies across all devices, all while allowing photographers to keep all of their own profits, truly set ShootProof apart.

Try any plan free for 30 days, or use ShootProof's full-featured forever-free plan to store and sell up to 100 photos. At Design Aglow, we're often approached by brands asking for a feature or to be introduced to our community. We've decided to begin sharing select companies with our readers, in the hope that you'll find their products as useful as we do. While we receive compensation for these posts, we vow never to promote a product just to make a quick buck, but instead align ourselves with companies that share our values of integrity and innovation.

I’ve been taking photographs ever since I can remember, but once I entered the world of wedding photography I felt the need to really understand my gear. Once you really learn your tools, you can worry less about the technical side and focus on putting your vision into that single frame. I feel the faster I can work, and the more intuitively I know my equipment, the more creative I can be. Wedding photography can make you a pro really fast. I think that artistic pressure is what drove me towards it.

As a lifelong fine artist, I didn’t fall in love with photography until post-college. I was a graphic design major who landed a non-creative position in the industry. Upon searching for a creative outlet, and being the hopeless romantic that I am, I discovered wedding photography and was immediately hooked. I poured everything I had into learning the medium so that I could eventually start my own business, which happened a couple of years later in 2012 — also the year I was married.
