Our Community

Many of the features you see on the site today, were recommended by photographers just like you. We feel like in order to create a tool that lines up with what professional photographers need in today's modern world it would be best for us to build a community around our essential studio manager. Instead of guessing on what photographers want, we choose to listen to your feedback, implement features you would love to see and build the absolute best managing tool for photographers by doing so. We consider those part of our community as an essential part of our team and love making their managing dreams a reality.

We are proud to be the only site that connects our users directly with our developers so they can request exactly what they want to see.

Tracking Your Finances Has Never Been Easier!

Track Your Income

The income tracking feature has never been easier to use and helps you manage what you have earned throughout the year. There are multiple ways for you to add income, the most common way is through a client. For instance, if you book a session with a client you can add a deposit to their session. This deposit is automatically added to your income tracker and is also associated with that client so you can track how much you have made off each client, pretty neat huh?

Track Your Expenses

In order to get an accurate reading of how much money your making you will need to track your expenses. Anytime you make a purchase through your business simply add that purchase to your expenses and the software will calculate your profits. There are charts for both the Income Tracker and Expense Tracker so you can see how your doing throughout the year.
