Congratulations to your fellow PhotoBizzer Ginger McNamara Saucier who recently photographed the winning picture in the NILMDTS Cutest Kid in North America Contest! She photographed eleven-year-old Aspen Crawford, of Mobile, Alabama, who competed against more than 850 contestants in the United States and Canada to win this award. Ginger, owner of Portrait Stories by Ginger located in Fairhope, Alabama, won a huge photography package of equipment and gear worth more than $6,000. The 2011 Charity Model Search raised over $44,000 where proceeds will help NILMDTS continue its mission to serve families suffering early infant loss with the free gift of professional portraiture. Check out the video below to watch Aspen receive her surprise visit from Ginger when she won the contest.
I am excited to share with you a HUGE new feature that is coming out for the PhotoBiz Store. This has been a highly requested feature over time, and we have found the perfect solution! With it’s initial release, the “Clipboard” will be available within the PhotoBiz Store only. We’d love to hear your feedback on the feature as we consider applying it to other PhotoBiz products. I’m going to take you through screenshots of the control panel showing you exactly how this feature works and when it will be available for the PhotoBiz Store Sites. The image bank clipboard allows to make the most of your image count by re-using images throughout your Store control panel.
The example below shows you how to move two images from gallery “Jill” to gallery “Sarah”. read full blog entry…
I found myself in an unusual spot this past weekend and learned a lot about my customers because of that.
You see, my oldest daughter got married this past weekend and I was the Mother of the Bride. Normally, as a professional photographer, the title, “Mother of the Bride,” is enough to make the best of us cringe. I had decided that I wouldn’t be “one of those” mothers and I’d be totally different than all the moms I’ve had to deal with over the past 20-some years.
But, hey, it was weird. I was standing behind the photographer (one of the best, mind you), watching her work and I had the uncontrollable urge to grab my point-and-shoot and photograph over her shoulder. I fought the urge, but it continued throughout the afternoon. Then during the wedding ceremony itself, a guest sat down in the second row from the front and proceeded to photograph the ceremony – WITH AN ON-CAMERA FLASH. (Was it the on-camera flash or the annoyance that she was ruining the lighting of the candlelight wedding?)
And, last but not least, I found myself asking the photographer that awful question, “When can I see the images?”
