HOW WE WORK
Photos by Poe focuses mainly on portrait and event photography, but we work in a lot of other areas as well, including sports, corporate branding and dance images. We also are a mobile, on-location photography service, using online platforms to make every part of the process as convenient as possible.
It starts with an online booking system that lets you schedule and pay for your photo session from your desk computer, laptop or smart phone. And after we take your pictures, we post-process them with professional photo-editing software and then put them in an online gallery.
This offers you all kinds of options. If the pictures are event photos, you can give your guests access to the gallery, with or without password protection. From there, you can let them download the pictures free or for a fee, buy prints and other products through our online storefront, or just view the beautifully presented images as a way to publicize the event and boost your image.
They can also share the pictures with friends via email, Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest, and create favorites lists to revisit, or to share with friends or the photographer. We can also set up a private section of the gallery that is only accessible to you, or we can give you a separate password that lets you designate any pictures in the main gallery as private and not visible to guests.
If the pictures are portraits (or many other types of photos of we do, such as product, sports or art photography), we will typically put a preliminary selection of lightly processed images in a password-protected gallery. This lets you choose your favorite final picture(s) for purchase and/or full editing. You will be able to share individual images with friends and create favorites lists for discussion with friends or the photographer, without giving friends the gallery password. When you have made your selections and the final edits are completed, you will be able to download the low- or high-resolution files, or order professional-grade prints or other products, through our online storefront.
Online galleries have other uses as well. If you're a model, actor or artist, we can for a fee host a selection of your portfolio pictures in an attractive gallery that you can show to agencies, casting directors or art establishments. All you have to do is send them the link and password, instead of mailing a physical printed portfolio. We can also insert a text box with a brief description of you and your career.
