Question: How do I make the most money selling photos!
At the risk of giving away trade secrets, the basics of any photo system is a camera, a computer running software and a delivery method, printer or digital. Thats all! Yes and no. Yes, you could probably use an old Polaroid camera and maybe give a few photos away to friends, but you are not going to sell a lot!
Selling photos has several 1st requirements! But probably at the top of the 1st, would be you, the owner of the location, the event manager, the person in charge. Look in the mirror and ask yourself, do you really want to make money selling photos! That’s 1st. If it is more important to you, to pull Johnny off taking photos, because Timmy called off sick, and you need Johnny to scare someone. Don’t waste your money! This is not something that can be taught. During my exhibition days, working the event openings, you could fell it, see it, watching the employees, if an owner wanted to make money selling photos! Since then, I’ve had booths at several trade shows, where year after year owners and employees come by and visit. Nothing different, not rocket science!
Another 1st, you again, the owner can not be everywhere! Depending on the size of your locations, you need to to find a trusted employee or hire one, who will have your support in selling photos. Maybe they manage a few photo employees or they work photos themselves. Either way, that person needs to be available, now, when they are needed. Next, staffing. I’ll give you an example. I was asked by the corporate office to drop by a Bodies location that started to see a decline in sales. Sure, sales fluctuate, but I really didn’t expect what I found. When I get there, I’m told, there must be some mistake. They have this great employee who is really good with Photoshop. Interesting! I watched as the employee bent the elbows on skeletons to match the guest photos for their lenticular Flip product souvenir, people changing to skeletons. I watched as a baby skeleton was added to a pregnant guests photo. Mind you, as other potential paying customers were walking by. I’m thinking to myself, we've taken this fast as you can souvenir and turned it into a 30 minute designer session. For $20 dollars, and no one at the locations saw the reason for the decline in sales! I’ll just say, not everyone will see an issue, and that’s OK, remember the 1st, 1st! A location needs good employees. You do not need professional photographers or Photoshop experts. You are selling photos as a product, good quality, but as fast as you can.

Amazing Sales starts with an Amazing Product
Who would have guessed, amazing products at a fair price are easy to sell.
What makes a sellable product? A fresh new idea that the customer likes or wants but cannot create themselves.
VueThru Pro Systems uses photography with a twist. We've added the capabilities for your customers to email their photos, upload to Facebook or Twitter, as well as printing amazing Photo Souvenirs.
Done right, Photo Souvenirs sell themselves. Your customers cannot create or buy a personalized Photo on their own. If your location offers and amazing photo op, or digital green screen graphics with your brand and displays them in a well-lit location, sales won't be the problem, managing the lines will. Throwing in an email option is a great bonus to keeping those waiting guests happy.
Lets start with the most important component, the photo op area, either natural or created or if using green screen the digital graphics. If you do not offer your customer a high quality photo product, you may have noticed low sales. Trying to offer an old boring photo or making a brick wall look great is nearly impossible and no one will buy it.
To the right is an example of an amazing Digital Graphic template created by Brainstorm Design Group. The design is brilliant. Every detailed inch of the image has high definition quality with great color contrast.
Great job Chuck! What customer would not want an Amazing Photo Souvenir like this one.
(If you do not have an amazing graphic template for your location, consider contacting Chuck at Brainstorm.)

The VueThru Pro System can use your:
* Natural Backgrounds
* Any Digital Graphic Template

Or if you want to offer a 3D Photo option. (See the next section below for 3D graphics tips & tricks and/or give us a call to set up a time for training). Also, you can provide us a layered Photoshop "PSD" file for your location and we will convert your graphic into a Kick Ass 3D Souvenir template for you to use.

These design sets are also included in the VueThru Pro Photo Kits. (No additional fees or royalties) For more information on graphics give use a call at 702-897-6185.
