the big picture: the essential photographer's planner

 We've said it before, and we'll say it again: people are over the moon about their Big Picture Planners! With a 100% customizable format, you can start planning with The Big Picture on any day you wish, with a fresh design that allows you to fill in your own dates for 2014 and beyond. Melanie of M.M. Hewitt Photography shares, "I love The Big Picture Planner. It helped me realize/re-realize why I take photographs and get back to my photographic roots. Not only that it makes me accountable for each image I want to create by helping me see it through from concept to shooting to processing to the final fine art printing. I used to jot down my ideas for images in a little notebook and then I would never see them again. Now I don't lose my ideas and so many of them have already turned into images that are hard core contenders for my portfolio. This planner is perfect for EVERY photographer who has goals they want to accomplish. The Big Picture Planner was so easy to customize. I was able to change the client workflow page to an image workflow page so that I can keep track of where I am through the creation of an image for my fine art portfolio. I also updated the client contact page to a gallery contact page, to include gallery director's name and their preferred process for portfolio submission. All of this will help me to keep track of images and galleries in getting my portfolio ready for submission."

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.
