8 Ways to Sell An Album to Every Client

Back in the day, wedding albums were the big thing. In fact, they were the only thing. My sister’s wedding album contains her 40 favorite images and…that’s it. No proofs. No negatives.

How to Sell Albums (and increase your studio revenue by $40,000+)

People often say less is more; when it comes to client images, more is most definitely more.
