snapizzi-1OK.. 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.

    Hi RC,

    First off, it was great seeing you at PSW – I love seeing all the on-screen faces in person :-) I read Scott’s blog today and kudos on his site. I posted this suggestion on there, but thought I’d put it here too. I spent WAY too much time trying to customize a template from Flashloaded until I eventually went with something else. ( – – which is nice – I like it, but it’s no flashloaded!) I think a great KelbyTraining class would be how to customize on of those. Maybe it’s too complicated for an online class, but I’m sure a lot of photographers are struggling with the same thing! I’m kind of clunking my way through the web world too. Anyway, just a suggestion! Thanks for all the awesome training you have out there already! :-)
