button only a day away!

We’re excited to have Sarah of Parisi Images back for another guest post here at Paperie! This time she’s sharing her in-home gallery space with our readers.

And make sure you read ’til the end because we have new birthday party info!

Parisi Images logo

The actual space is a small (barely over 100 square feet) four-season porch attached to the back of the house. It offers just enough room to do what I love—invite a bride a groom over to share in some wine or coffee and spend the evening sharing our stories. If you meet with me, you’ll soon learn that the reason I photograph weddings is because I love stories…and I want you to see and to know that your story is beautiful, just the way it is. The design of the space is driven by the the idea of generous hospitality—the table—an old farmstand table painted white—holds center stage. Just like so many kitchen tables, it’s at the table where we get to know one another, where the sharing, the giving, the receiving all take place when you come for a visit.

For other photographers out there interested in what went into creating this space, you shouldn’t be surprised to learn that it all stems directly from my brand and packaging materials. One way to know if your branding is working for you is to see how well it translates into a variety of uses, purposes and spaces.

I initially planned to create a “living room” scene with a sofa and large-screen display. After a great deal of trial-and-error, I came to realize the space was just too small to provide ample room for a couch.

“Plan B” evolved into pairing down the furniture to absolute essentials—a table and seating. Using a bench on one side of the table offered enough seating for clients without filling the room with excess chairs and keeps the visual appeal of the space tight and tidy.

The room divider filled with images creates a small entryway, accented by a stool showcasing the circle emblem of my logo. (I personally love this touch!) Most of all, I intentionally filled the space with gallery wraps, large prints and sample albums, giving clients the ability to really envision ways they can make use of their own images.

There’s a great Q&A going on over at the Paperie Facebook page:

I’m ALWAYS at a loss for packaging LARGE prints and I’ve followed you for a long time but can’t seem to find much highlighted with that…wondered if you could share or ask for people to share how they package wall prints sometime? Every idea I’ve found is really not affordable. Would love help doing that as it’s most of what I sell.

Anyone have ideas or a vendor / product recommendation? Thanks!


Please drop by and join the conversation!

Excited to have Ariana Falerni back for another giveaway / guest / vendor post!

Shoot & Sell

Shoot & Sell: Portrait Sales on the Go!
A new iPad app for photographers coming to the iTunes store mid-September.

From the creators of the Photographer’s Wall Display Guides, comes Shoot & Sell – a new iPad app for photographers to help their clients “picture their pictures” on the walls of their home.

Whether meeting with clients at their home, the photographer’s studio, or anywhere in between, Shoot & Sell lets photographers create wall display designs using beautiful stock room backgrounds, a picture of the client’s actual walls or a picture taken on the spot with the iPad’s camera . Thanks to the app’s unique ability to calibrate any room image, images are shown in actual proportion providing an easy, realistic size reference.

Designed by a photographer for photographers, Shoot & Sell is also a powerful tool for any visual artist, from painters to printmakers to Etsy shop owners – all can benefit from showing potential clients the impact that their art can have when placed on a wall.

   31 portrait sizes – user can customize which sizes to show or
   not show to match their own product offerings
• Two finger rotate to change canvases from landscape to portrait
   orientation at will
• Frame single images – with or without mats in 5 basic colors
   and 8 combinations of frame and mat widths
• Scale, zoom, flip and rotate images to find the best crop and
   even straighten out horizon lines
• Choose from the 10 included stylish stock room backgrounds
   or import and scale your own room images with the easy to
   use calibration tool

   in-app purchases

button society pages

We’re excited to have a new vendor / guest post from one of our favorite advertisers at Paperie – The Wedding Photographic Society.

Wedding Photographic Society

Welcome to The Wedding Photographic Society (WPS)

Welcome to The Wedding Photographic Society (WPS)! We’re a network of professional wedding & portrait photographers who come together to collaborate on photographic ideas, thoughts, and information in an attempt to elevate the artistic, technical, and business standards of the wedding photographic community. Membership in the WPS offers many professional & personal growth opportunities via bi-monthly educational meetings, networking, critiques, and general camaraderie during such gatherings. WPS meetings, forums, blog submissions, & web pages are open to any and all professional wedding photographers throughout the world.

The WPS’s origins date back to 2005, when Raleigh, NC wedding photographer Christobal Perez organized quarterly photography meetings in an effort to help build relationships, share knowledge amongst peers, and help create a competitive, yet supportive photographic community. The spirit of Christobal’s movement has grown exponentially since that time and has since evolved into the WPS (which became official in 2009) with the further support of other local photographers, Martha Manning, Stacy Borelli, & Brian Mullins. Leaders & members of the WPS donate their time to organize topic discussions with guest speakers, collaborate on ideas and offer guidance, all without compensation.

Membership
To join the WPS, you need to meet the following minimum criteria:

– Actively pursuing business as a professional wedding and/or portrait photographer (or aspiring to be a professional wedding and/or portrait photographer).

– A professional photography website showing your current work.

– Willingness to share your knowledge with others (we don’t ask for state secrets but a general willingness to be open and help others when possible).

There are two levels of membership in the WPS; aspiring and professional.

Aspiring
An aspiring member is someone who is not yet a professional photographer but looking to gain knowledge in photography, learn about proper business practice and grow as a photographer. Typically these are newer photographers in the field of weddings & portraits. Membership grants permissions to attend the monthly meetings and have limited access to the forums. This insures an open environment to ask questions in without fear of hostility.

Professional
A professional member has all the rights of the aspiring member, but has full access to the forums. A professional member will be actively pursuing business and working in the field of professional wedding or portrait photography.

The review process
Each application is personally reviewed by a WPS board member to determine which classification the applicant will be granted. Any photographer granted “aspiring” status can petition, at any time, for “full” or “professional” standing at which time their application will be reviewed again.

Application
To officially become a member of the WPS please first read the FAQ then register here.

Meetings
So as you enter into the WPS, you will undoubtedly see and hear about local meetings with some really cool topics and opportunities to network with other photographers in your area. These meetings are the true essence of the WPS and we HIGHLY encourage your attendance. If you don’t have local meetings in your area, then contact us at admin@weddingphotographicsociety.com to aid in assisting in starting a group local to you.

Forums
The WPS forums are our home away from home. As we started our organization based on face to face meetings, we quickly realized we needed a place to compile information such as emergency shooter lists, buying and selling gear, meeting announcements, etc. You can use them to get help with a sticky situation, help resolving a client issue, to vent or just to network. In the WPS, you definitely get out of it what you put into it so contribute whenever possible.

Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the WPS and we look forward to your future contributions to the society.

WPS Executive Board Member

Photographers for Baby Safety

I’d like to share a group I recently “faved” on Facebook – the Professional Photographers for Baby Safety:

“We (as a concerned creative collective) have started watermarking/stamping composite images with a ‘seal’ of sorts as a ‘best practice’.

This seal lets everyone know that the image is two different photos edited together to create magic.

Both photographers and parents alike will see it and instantly know when an image is a composite without reading (nobody reads the fine print anyway). And will be educated that these are composites and photographers who offer/attempt the poses without compositing are working outside the generally accepted safety norms.”


For more information, and to join the cause, please visit their Facebook page!

We’ve officially been at this a week now and we’re still going strong! Shame when you have so many amazing vendors donate so many awesome prizes, huh? Stay tuned today because we’ll start announcing winners to the earlier contests soon…

But first! How about we kick off with another giveaway — this one will have THREE winners! This one is from a Paperie favorite Design Aglow and DeVoe Creative Photography & Design.

Design Aglow Portrait Welcome Packet
Design Aglow Portrait Welcome Packet

Portrait Studio Welcome Packet
A fine “How do you do?”

Preparing your clients for investing in the ultimate custom portrait experience with your studio? Design Aglow’s Portrait Studio Welcome Packet is our latest comprehensive collection that sets the scene for a complete luxury experience. As time-saving as it is beautiful, all the information you’ll need is in one place and plants the seeds for ordering wall galleries and your finest products. Clients will look flawless—we supply tips for great hair, makeup, and clothing—and you’ll look even better, with a suite of items you can print yourself, or order in short runs at the your lab of choice.

A small investment to look like a million bucks (and the most impressive studio in your town), our products pay for themselves, setting the bar high for customer satisfaction and a true, customer portrait experience—and with the professional, inspiring appeal clients will want to share with friends.

INCLUDES:
•   welcome note: defines the custom portraiture experience and
    how your studio exceeds client expectations (5×7 flat note card)
•   session info card: time/date/location of session, plus studio
    information (2×7 folded bookmark)
•   fashion tips: a clothing, hair and makeup guide to help your
    clients look their best (5×5 trifold)
•   portrait referral cards to share with clients for marketing
    (business card size)
•   studio policies: what session includes, what to expect during
    and after the session, policies and copyright info (5×7 wide
    format card)
•   sticker: for branding the front of your packet (4×5.5)
•   essential “getting to know you” questionnaire to print yourself
    (8.5×11)
•   product menu: shares wall gallery and product introduction
    and ordering requirements (8 panel accordion card)
•   client gift: customizable mini promo book with 10 panels,
    quotes and studio info, plus front and back custom covers
    (3×3 accordion hardcover book)

•   BONUS: 8 page tutorial of must-have sources and information.
