  • I am wanting to introduce and switch to a fully automated process. I am entering into my 3 year of volume photography and I continue to grow leaps and bounds each year. I photographed around 2500 athletes last year. I am finding my delivery times are slow, errors are starting to happen more than I like, and I have no time to myself. I want to have an online entry system like photoday, the ability to design the photos myself, and then send to Richmond to print and have them mail directly to the client. Please help me know how I can achieve this. I use all custom compositing and I am a graphic designer so I do all the photo design myself. But I would like to look at options to help me limiting doing all it myself. HIGH QUALITY IS HUGE TO ME! I am not a shoot and print, I may offer some of that, but I need to keep my high quality print options as that is what makes me different from all my competitors.
    Please let me know who I can walk through this with and how I achieve this. I have friends Kimberly Campbell Melloan and Brandy Moton, and they both mentioned that I need to go this route. Thanks!
