E-commerce spotlight: Sytist and Authorize.Net
Software platform for professional photographers
If you are a professional photographer you are likely well aware of how complex the process can be from shoot to finished product. While to many it may seem you just shoot a camera and hand out the shots, we know it’s much more than that. First, there is the type of event, what you are trying to capture, the differences in lens usage and lighting based on what you want the end product to be. Then you have to edit and polish all the photos in an editor and correct and minor flaws. You may then have to get approval from your client, with green screen sessions you may provide a plethora of extra options for them to choose from. Lastly, you need to get paid, without chasing checks, without accepting peer to peer payments that make you look “small time”. This only scratches the surface. If you are looking for an online, e-commerce photographer focused solution you might want to check out a software suite called “Sytist”. You can read more about them here.
