Overcoming the workflow crush
As a high school senior photographer, one of my main goals is always looking for new ways to cut the amount of time I spend at the computer and increase time spent behind the camera. Though our company is very efficient with retouch and editing, what has become an increasingly larger issue for us is book and album design.
One of our largest selling items to our senior clients is our coffee table books. Even with the aid of pre-designed templates, I still find it takes me at least an hour to insert my client’s images into the templates before uploading to the lab. During our busy season I commit 15-20 hours a week to album and book design.
I knew I couldn’t be the only one dealing with this time-consuming problem, so I began reaching out to several of my photography friends around the country. I wasn’t alone. Many other professional photographers are also having the same problems, or worse yet, they aren’t able to offer albums to clients due to the amount of design time involved.
