One customer of the service is award-winning member of The Societies, documentary and wedding photographer Kevin Mullins, who keeps his portfolio and e-commerce activities as separate entities. He uses Zenfolio for all his clients' online proofing and ordering as well as for creating beautiful slideshows, and loves the fact that his brides can place orders through his site that are automatically fulfilled by a respected and trusted pro lab, freeing him from time consuming administrative duties. In terms of how it's helped his business, he sums it up as "freeing up about seven or eight hours a week of my time that I can either spend with the kids, or in other aspects of the business. Having a fulfilment system that I can also access via my iPhone whilst away is really important as I'm out of the country a bit. It really has been a brilliant system for me."
"The designs are beautiful and built with photographers in mind. The aim of the website is to show off your images and Zenfolio does that perfectly. The shop is integrated straight into the gallery, meaning people can buy as they browse without having to go through an awkward ordering process, as happened with my old website. Most importantly, it is really quick to load too!"
As Kevin himself says, "there are no shortcuts in this industry so invest in the best you can. From gear to software to great workflow aiding tools like Zenfolio, a small investment often leads to big rewards."
