PhotoBiz Loves Me, Yes They Do

Five Top Photographers share why they love and feel loved by Photobiz

PhotoBiz loves its customers and over the years its customers have shown that they appreciate what PhotoBiz does. In fact PhotoBiz has thousands of glowing testimonials and referrals. To highlight the experience of working with PhotoBiz, five nationally renowned photographers were selected to participate in an advertising campaign to express that love is a two-way street.
The first of our featured photographers is Sandy Puc. She enjoys sharing her knowledge with other photographers through her tour series, Sandy Puc Presents. When asked about why she loves and feels loved by PhotoBiz she said, “We spent no more than 5 hours on our website and it was done! I could not believe it! The team at PhotoBiz was wonderful! The control panel was easy to use, it was fast, and it was effective.”

It’s one thing to feel love for a company, and another thing to feel loved by them. Lori Nordstrom is dedicated to not only running one of the most profitable portrait studios in the country, but to educating other photographers in the business. Lori says, “I love the ‘people’ of PhotoBiz. The customer service is phenomenal – I feel like I have a partner behind my website! Their products keep me doing what I do best, photography.” PhotoBiz partners with our customers to provide an easy, professional online experience that includes more than just websites.

New York, NY – Adorama, the leading supplier of photographic and consumer electronics products, is now selling the new Flashpoint Soft Box for Shoe Mount Flashes with Mounting Hardware. The 24″x24″ Flashpoint Soft Box converts on-camera flash from a harsh directional light into a much softer diffused light.

Soft boxes are highly popular lighting solutions for all types of photographers, and are used primarily as either the principle light source (Key Light), or a secondary light that helps reduce contrast (Fill Light).

Soft box lighting is perfect for all types of photography and is often preferred for portrait lighting. The Soft Box by Flashpoint folds flat for easy storage and comes equipped with rods for easy set up and a carrying case for easy transport.
