How to do an Instant Viewing with Your Photography Clients

Want to do an instant viewing with your clients for a photo session. head shots at a conference, mini sessions, or boudoir marathon?

An instant viewing can help you save loads of time, help you make more money, have happier clients, and get your clients their photos back faster!

For every photo shoot I do a same day viewing and ordering session, however, for that we take a 30-60 min break for me to cull/edit. Sometimes I just want/need to do the viewing instantly.

The last time I did an instant viewing using the eye-fi was at a women's business conference. I decided I was going to market my boudoir business by doing women's head shots right there at the conference. It might seem weird to market boudoir with head shots but it worked really well for me! Let me explain…

I set up my studio right there in the conference. I had a 10×10 foot booth and I set up my background, lights, gear, etc. I offered day of head shots w/ instant viewing/ordering. It only took me 5-10 mins per person. I ended up making $2k that day off just one off head shots. AND the best part…

…was that along with their 5-10 min shoot and their 1 digital file they also got to know me and receive tons of info on my studio!

I used the quick head shots as a way for them to get to know me, see I'm professional, and feel at ease behind my camera.

It worked well because I ended up booking a slew of boudoir sessions after the conference from those ladies in addition to the day of sales (which was freakin' sweet too!).
