Leeann Marie says Systems are Sexy

First up on our Price, Process, Profit Workshop FEATURE is Leeann Marie!  Leeann is unique in that she’s the only photographer that is speaking on every leg of the tour!

Our President Jared Bauman, on why he asked Leeann to be a part of the workshop:
“Leeann is a perfect compliment to the Price, Process, Profit Workshop, as she’s an absolute wiz at creating systems.  Becoming efficient, creating automation, having a system for your workflow – these things are so essential to running a functional and successful business.  She’s become the systems specialist through her small business consulting, and was the obvious choice for the workshop.”

“Use ShootDotEdit to do the grunt work and….”, says Jared Platt

Well, you may or may not have heard Jared Platt officially announced on creativeLIVE today that he has determined that it no longer makes professional sense for him to post process his own work and that he now trusts ShootDotEdit to do the “heavy lifting”.  “Use ShootDotEdit to do the grunt work and normalize and then add your flair and style” was his encouragement to the 10,000+ listeners.

Jared Platt made clear that for him, he still believes adding the signature artistic touch to his photos after we have processed his custom color is the right thing to do. Sort of like a 90/10 model, where ShootDotEdit does 95% of the heavy lifting and then the photographer comes in and ensures that all the flair and pop are exactly as they want it.

And well, we’re curious, where do you stand with your wedding post production? What is your custom color preference?  Where are your cohorts on this topic?

Would love to hear your thoughts!!!

ShootDotEdit turns five! – [and, that means birthday presents]

Hey everyone – it’s Garrett here 🙂

I’m writing you because we just celebrated our 5th birthday and I’m looking for suggestions on how to get 5,000 photographers from around the world into San Diego for our birthday party… For a couple of hundred bucks?

I know – we couldn’t think of a way either. 🙂

So, while I’m pretty bummed about missing out on 5,000 birthday presents, I hate to have a birthday go by without SOMEONE getting a present… so, I’m gonna give you a couple:

  • HALF-OFF* of our CULL service for the month of May
  • FREE* Overnight Shipping to us, because Fast is Best™

All of this to really say, thank you for making us the first choice for post production. You are why we exist, and we think about that, every single day.

Cheers to no more editing,

Garrett
