OK.. one of the things I love to do at a trade show like PSW is check out what kinds of stuff the vendors have out there. You never know what kinds of cool things are out there just waiting to be checked out and adopted. One of those things that I saw that I would love to check out is something called Snapizzi. I thought it rocked.. so let’s check out what it does.
Basically, you create an account, which is free. Then they give you this option to print out these things called IZTags. You get a bunch of IZ tags, and off you go. Now, let’s say you’re a photographer doing a shoot. All you have to do is take one of the IZ tags, hold it up to the camera and take a picture of it. Hand the card to the client. Now, continue to take your pictures.. Once you are done, you upload all of that information to the web, and you’re done. The client then goes through the entire process, from selection to ordering, and you don’t have to do another thing (Snapizzi takes a percentage for the service).
I know that there are a lot of you out there that want to use that digital camera to shoot events, but don’t want to necessarily go ‘all in’ on a business venture. As a Freelancer, I think this can totally be a solution for those shooting events.
The following are a bunch of cool tutorials you may want to catch up on. There’s a lot of learning going on here!
