Photographers, you deserve so much more credit than people give you! As you know, your business goes far beyond showing up to shoots, snapping pictures and then going home to edit and deliver those images. What most people don't see is the juggling act it takes to run a successful photography business. The planning, corresponding, location scouting, shooting, marketing, blogging, social media content curation, editing, ordering albums, etc..the list goes on!! To stay competitive and on top of everything often comes at the expense of the things and people that matter most to you. Sometimes something has to give. What if you could hand over your editing? How much vitality could your business and life take on if you weren't stuck behind your computer as much?
It isn't easy giving up control. You've worked so hard to build a unique brand, and your clients know what to expect from you. However, how is doing it all yourself working out for you? My guess is it's getting heavy and costly. I want to assure you there is another way. There is more freedom to be had; more joy to be found in your work; and more business waiting for you if you are willing to put your trust in outsourcing. Allow me to help you breathe a little easier by taking on your editing, so you can share your gifts with more passion and vigor, as well as get your life back!
You will have access to my schedulers (both wedding and portrait sessions) and can book an appointment for any available time slot up to 90 days in advance.
We will be building and exchanging smart previews in Lightroom.
You will also need to create an anchor image (aka a pre edited image) for every lighting and scenario change that I will base my editing off of.
If you are not familiar how to do one or both of the above, no worries, you will receive detailed instructions upon onbaording.
Once you have prepared your catalog to be edited, you will compress and export your smart previews file and simply drag and drop it into my custom WeTransfer page. It's a lot like drop box, and you will not need an account of your own for this. This is where we will send all files back and forth.
Once I receive your files and make sure everything looks ready to go, I will let you know all is well and I will begin the editing. I have a 3-6 business day turnaround time. Meanwhile, YOU get to decide how you will enjoy your newfound freedom from editing!
You'll receive an email with a downlaod link from me once your edits are complete. You will then import the edited catalog file into that original catalog in Lightroom (instructions provided); and watch as all my edits are applied to your images!
You will then look over the edits and give me any feedback you see fit. I have a virtual feedback system set up so we can show each other feedback as opposed to trying to explain via text.
That is it! I have made this process easy and painless, and I will be here to guide you through it all.
