Work smart - Not hard
Alishia Love Photography
I’ve been using Photo Workflow for 4 years now, and I cannot imagine running my business without it. It makes sending images to clients and agents simple and easy. The booking system is a personal favourite, My clients can go onto my website see my availability and book a session instantly. Definitely recommend it to all photographers!
A fully customisable and branded system to help you take control of booking management. This is the feature all our members say saves them the most time in the management of their business.
Client galleries are simple and sleek with powerful header images. Clients can drag and drop the order of images, create a favourites list, leave comments and share a public view of their gallery to friends and family. And of course they can order their selections and pay any outstanding balance.
You have full ability to add as many free images you want to any of the galleries you create. When it comes to extra images, you can create price lists and discounts and extra payments are settled via PayPal.
Clients are offered the option to download their images in either a Print or Web resolution all resized by PW from the original file. They are always available on the system for your client to login and download so no more re-sending links or fishing for old files in random hard drives.
One platform for your streamlined photography workflow

How we use PW
We went to see one of our busiest members at their studios to talk about how intergrating our system with their business has helped them grow.
Oh you don't shoot weddings?
So why don't you simplify, automate and organise your photography business with one integrated system?
Our driving ambition is to combine all your client and business management needs into one slick and stylish web app that will take you and your clients from booking to image delivery effortlessly, without multiple systems and manual tasks.
The home of your business. See whats been happening at a glance. Orders, Booking News, Image comments, Recent Sessions and Logins.
Also a handy little weather forecast to plan your week ahead!
Every page and feature has been fine tuned to work on mobiles and tablets. even fiddly tasks such as moving a booking, assigning a retoucher or changing session details can all be done on the move. And of course client galleries look great without the need of an App.
The dedicated Lightroom plugin has access to your database and works with your PW client galleries and orders. This means you can upload directly from Lightroom without creating temporary files and adjust the export settings to your liking.
The ability to download your clients, agents, sessions and transactions
databases as a .csv to import into marketing or finance packages.
Amazon web services
Storage of images and the App are powered by Amazon Web Services and all of its groundbreaking features.
Your diary view shows the week at a glance, colour coded to different types of services. Drag and drop blocks to adjust times and send updates to clients, click a time to create a new booking and open existing booking to see further details.
Financial summary information is shown at the top of the page to keep track of your turnover on each week.
If you use the booking system you have the ability to transfer all of that database information into invoices with a few clicks via our API link to Quickbooks
The Photo Workflow community is still small, and therefore support and advice is always on hand from either the team or other users We also lease constantly with our user base about future ideas and for feedback on how we can improve going forward..
Let Photo Workflow take care of your watermarking, It will leave the original upload with no watermark so you always have access to it as a back up, while a web version for client viewing will have your watermark applied to prevent screenshots.. You can also turn this on or off as you wish for certain galleries.
One of the most time consuming tasks as a busy photographer is providing images and notes to a retoucher, this has been integrated in PW. Designate an order to one of your retouchers and they will have access to the original files, client retouching notes, your own notes and even provide them Raw files via our Raw Vault if needed.
The booking system is minimal but fully customisable to promote your brand and work.
Clients are welcomed with your opening message and guided through the process of picking from your services, selecting a date and time , registering their client details to the system and all importantly no bookings are secured until their deposit via PayPal is confirmed.
If users book in and don't complete a deposit payment you have the flexibility to set how long you wish the booking to remain in your diary for whilst you await payment, and if no payment is made you and the client receive notification of the cancelation keeping your diary tidy and up to date.
See all of your orders and notes from clients at a glance and allocate them effortlessly to retouchers. Upload RAW files if needed and deliver finished retouches in a few clicks.
Pricing Per Month
Approx 2 clients a week
Photo Workflow was initially designed to be a tool for Headshot Photographers, but as it grew and features were added it serves the needs of many different photography businesses. If you book sessions for your clients, provide an online proofing gallery for them and then take orders for images they would like to purchase then Photo Workflow could happily suit your needs. On top of this it also provides features that you won't find anywhere else such as a integrated booking system, agent accessibility, retoucher communication and Quickbooks link up.

I’ve been using photo workflow for 4 years now, and I cannot imagine running my business without it. It’s makes sending images to clients and agents simple and easy. I can keep track of edits I need to do, which keeps me organised. The booking system is a personal favourite. My clients can go onto my website and book a session directly through there. Definitely recommend it to photographers!

Photoworkflow helps me manage my bookings, shoots and orders seamlessly, saving me time to focus on shooting and saving me money to put into the business. I take more bookings with fewer client interactions, my clients love the favouriting and ordering tools in the gallery, and with retoucher integration it's no hassle to process and deliver the extra image orders the site encourages. to top it all, it acts as an archive for client shots, meaning I spend almost no time searching out images from my backup drives. Highly recommended.

Photoworkflow has made my life as a photographer so much easier. Once set up it’s such a time saver, everything is in the one place and easy to navigate. The booking system in particular has saved me on admin giving me precious time back to focus on the creative stuff! An added bonus if you’re shooting actors is the ability to link their agents to the gallery, meaning they can easily see each other’s favourites and narrow down final images for retouching. Couldn’t imagine using another system now!

I’ve been using photo workflow since 2016 and I can honestly say it’s one of the key reasons I have the business I have to today.
Photo Workflow has provided me with every system I need to build an efficient photography business all in one place. I also find it incredibly user friendly for both the photographer and clients/agents.
Using this platform makes It possible for you to leverage your time and give you back a large portion of your life that you suddenly loose when you become busy. It also suddenly makes your business far more scalable because many of the tasks you would have to do normally become automated through Photo Workflow.
I couldn’t recommend Photo Workflow enough and would say after investing in a camera and lens Photo Workflow should be next.

Photo Workflow is an incredible tool that keeps your bookings, contact sheets and orders seamlessly in one place.
It makes life before and after a shoot a heck of a lot easier.
I Would thoroughly recommend it to any photographers looking to get a good system in place for their galleries and admin.

The 2 things that have been game changers for me as a self-employed photographer have been 1) outsourcing my retouching and 2) Photo workflow. Photo Workflow has saved some much time both in the booking process and in client aftercare. I look back and shudder at the amount of time I spent emailing clients back and forth, working out dates, getting them booked in and sending them preparatory info. The after a shoot, notifying them their images were ready then dealing with retouching orders etc. Workflow literally does all of that for me. Clients love it, it’s slick and easy to use and it keeps getting better with little improvements along the way. As I said, it’s been total game changer for me and there’s no way I’d go back to life without it.
