The Big Picture Planner: An Effective System for Getting Things Done

It's no secret that the Big Picture Planner is a simple and effective system for getting things done. Hear how it's helped Brittany of Brittany Chandler Photography: "This planner is so wonderful. With a part time job, photography business, busy blog and website, and miscellaneous duties as a Clickin Moms mentor, I need to be organized and stay on top of everything. This planner was the ticket. The blogger add-on was a must have for me as I curate blog post ideas for work, for my own blog, and for numerous photography blogs within the industry. I also love having one place for all of my ideas, as they used to be housed on my messy and unorganized iPhone, and it random notebooks that get lost. The weekly to-do pages are so important, as each week looks different for me, with different deadlines and responsibilities.

After deciding what pages I needed for my planner, I printed out 6 months worth on my home computer in 5.5x8.5 sized pages. I resized within the Print window instead of resizing in Photoshop. It worked perfectly. I added some ruled paper for my random note taking as well, hole-punched the pages, and it fits perfectly into a mini binder that I purchased from Target. I love this planner so much, and it's so nice having it this size so I can take it with me everywhere. It goes in my purse and comes with me to work, is on my desk when at my home computer, and sleeps on my nightstand in case a great, insomnia-inspired idea strikes."

How To Be A Really, Really Happy Photographer

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.
