Why is it important to delivery of photographs to customers?

Several years ago, when a photographer considered how to send photos to a client, he had no doubts. He used to arrange an appointment with his client in the photo studio and on that day he would view the images of his session, without having to share photos with clients through any kind of media or platform. At that time it was the best way to present your final products to your clients and at the same time to sell them some extra product. In those days all photographers knew perfectly well how to show images to the client in order to impress them with their images.

But now customer behaviour and, therefore, the methods of sending photos to them have changed quite a bit. Due to the hectic day-to-day life of both photographers and photographers, a more convenient and versatile method of sending pictures via image selection pages is now in operation. With this new option, customers can view and order from the comfort of their homes without having to spend a day at the photo studio. This way, the photographer only has to decide how many images to deliver per session.

If you want to know how to deliver photos to clients in a practical, fast and professional way, we are going to explain you how thanks to the private galleries of: sale, selection and/or download that you can create in your client area, you can save a lot of time in this process and your clients will be much more satisfied with your online service.

How many photos to deliver per session?

With private galleries the question of how many photos to deliver per session will no longer be as decisive as before, because the answer will be the more the better.

Think that in a private gallery customers will not only be able to select images for their wedding album (for example), but they will also be able to make a series of automatic purchases that will increase your profits, for example, with the purchase of prints for the family, prints in professional formats, photo packages and any other product that you have for sale.

Forget the concept of how many photos are delivered at a wedding or any other photo shoot and upload as many images as possible to private client galleries with multiple options (select, download and sell), this way the profit percentage of each photo shoot will increase considerably without you doing any additional work.

Private galleries to share photos with clients


If your photography business has the possibility to create all kinds of private galleries so that your clients can interact with the images of their photo stories, you will have a great advantage over other photographers who cannot yet offer this service to their clients.

“Private galleries are a powerful sales tool for sharing photos with clients and will allow you to offer a much broader and more fruitful service”.

Depending on the type of reportage you do and the profile of your ideal client, you can create different private galleries according to their needs and decide how many photos to deliver per session.

In this way, your clients will be able to privately access their images from any device (PC, Tablet or mobile) and at any time to carry out a series of actions with the photographs and videos of their photographic reports, such as, for example:

  • View a multimedia presentation.
  • Selection of photos.
