A great new site has been launched locally for South African ‘Event Photographers’ to increase their revenues. In the past, photographers covering weddings or other events benefited financially from the ordering of reprints by event attendees, though often the hassles of driving back and forth to the lab brought its own headaches. With the onslaught of digital however, many photographers began handing over images on CD and scraping the profits of reprints.
PhotoEvents.co.za is a site that offers photographers the option to regain their lost reprint revenue without the headaches of handling orders themselves. Check out the press release below.
It is my great pleasure to announce a new service being offered to event photographers in South Africa.
We have currently launched a new online web portal for event photographers and their clients. The site: www.photoevents.co.za is an online photo ordering system designed to help you and your customers share and print their favourite photographs of an event. In addition to this; you the photographer will be able to recoup profits from your client’s reprints.
There are no hidden costs or registration fees to use the site (it is 100% free) and you will be able to earn 50% of the total revenue of your printed pictures.
I would like to invite you to run through a demonstration of the site:
First click on this link:
Then click on the demo tab on the left hand side.
Then click on demo login and you will be taken to the front end of the site where I have loaded some sample photo galleries for you to browse. You can click on the galleries and the albums inside, order pictures and run through the shopping cart.
As you can see all your photographs will be watermarked and only low resolution thumbnails are loaded onto the site to fully protect your pictures. The utmost care will be taken with this. Also, unlike in the demo login all the galleries will be kept private and you will only be granted access if you are on an event guest list. As events can often be intimate affairs I think this will help to ease your client’s minds about putting their pictures online.
Obviously as you will see once the client has ordered their pictures in the requested sizes they will printed by Peldon Technologies on the highest quality Sony Dye Sublimation printers and couriered to the client’s door and you will receive a cut of the sale. Simple easy and no fuss.
I would be very interested to see what you think of the site, any suggestions you might have and if you might be interested in working with us in the future.
