Resources & ToolsSoftware tools and business training to help your studio succeed
Nothing makes it onto this page unless we love it and use it in our own studio, but I should mention that some of these links are affiliate links and we do get some commission if you purchase through them. In most cases you’ll also get a discount, an extended free trial or some other bonus too. There are also links on here (e.g., Zapier) that don’t give you or us anything more than a recommendation to a great product.
Software for Photographers
Our team uses these apps every day to run the studio and produce artwork for our clients.
General Business Tools
These are the tools I’d keep using even if I wasn’t a photographer. They help us stay efficient and sane!
Our recommended tool for building chatbots. It’s the industry leader and the visual designer screens work well for creatives.
By far the best online scheduling tool we’ve used (and we’ve tried a LOT). Acuity also integrates nicely with our other apps. 7 day free trial
We use Square for online & in-person payments. Easy to use and payments clear quickly. This link gets free processing on $1000 of transactions for both you and I.
Link all of your cloud-based apps and get them working together. Simpler to use than Integromat and has some different apps, so we actually use both. 14-day free trial.
Make sure you contact Dan. He’s helped us recover from a relentless hacking campaign, set up new web servers and sites. Legend
