Ready To Break Into Boudoir Photography?

Found this great article on Black Star Rising and wanted to share.  From the article:

The popularity of boudoir photography has exploded over the past few years. It’s not only become a fashionable wedding gift for brides to present to their grooms on their Big Day (or the night before), but it also makes a great anniversary, Valentine’s Day, and “just because” gift. Along with the tremendous increase in demand, there’s also been a huge increase in the number of photographers offering boudoir as part of their services. Some are even specializing in it. If you’ve been thinking about breaking into this lucrative market, here are some things to consider.

Levi’s Photo Workshop

Levi’s just opened up a community photography studio, where people can come and use equipment and studio space for free.

From the article:

Opening today in the former Deitch Gallery in NYC is the Levi’s Photo Workshop. Levi’s established the workshop to both celebrate photography’s rich history in New York City and to be a place where photographers of all levels can work together. The Photo Workshop will provide free photography resources including camera rentals (they have a fantastic selection of both digital and vintage film cameras available), the use of studio space and professional lighting equipment, and photo printers ranging from small and large format inkjet to an apparel printer.

A Great Solution For Packing and Shipping Your Photographs

Andrew Darlow, co-developer of GalleryPouch and editor of, recently sent me some samples of these great shipping bags.  Photographers, you are probably familiar with the hassle involved in shipping photographs.  Regular bubble wrap is not sturdy and is a total pain to cut and tape to fit.

Using the GalleryPouch could not be easier!  They come with your choice of either just a closable flap or a reclosable flap that contains a Velcro strip, and are made of heavy duty, see-through plastic (which makes it easy to identify images without taking them out of the pouch).  You simply insert your framed photo (or anything else you are shipping), seal the pouch, and it is ready to go!  There are no exposed bubbles on the pouch, which allows for extra protection, and you can even choose where to have the opening (either the long or short side of the pouch).

To get a closer look at how the GalleryPouch functions, take a look at the video below:
