In our second huge announcement in two weeks we are excited to announce a new partnership with ShootProof which will see the development of educational courses for photographers in 2017.

ShootProof empowers photographers to focus on what matters most. As a small team of photographers, developers, engineers, perfectionists, and customer service fanatics, they work to give our photographers a beautiful platform with which to share and sell their work. Their belief is that photographers’ sales are the result of their hard work, so they allow them to set their own prices and keep 100% of their profits: they’ve never charged a commission-fee and are proud to say that they never will.

Because they listen to their photographers and strive to build long-lasting relationships, their services go well beyond client proofing and print sales; providing invoicing, contact management, and mobile apps, they deliver top-notch customer service. ShootProof believes in simple, intuitive design and freedom of choice for photographers. Tens of thousands of photographers in over 30 countries are now sharing and selling millions of photos with ShootProof.

They continue to strive to have the most supportive service available for their clients, and be the online hub for photography businesses around the world.

With this intention in mind they have been looking for ways to help more photographers to succeed and have partnered with Engage to do just that. The team will travel to the UK to film a series of educational courses with Engage and these will be streamed online and for free in 2017. Details of the classes will be announced in the coming months, so keep an eye out on the blog for those.

CEO of Engage, Donal Doherty is excited to partner with ShootProof, he explains:

“We moved over to ShootProof a year ago. At the time we were using two solutions, one to deliver online files to clients in a beautiful design and the other to deal with album proofing and print sales. It was expensive and cumbersome having to switch between two solutions and I’m sure it was confusing for our clients. I was blown away when I moved to ShootProof, not only did it do what the other providers offered, but it did it 100 times better and at much better cost. Not only is it more convenient, but its advanced automation has enabled us to increase sales of digital files and prints. Feedback from our client has been insanely good, they love it as much as we do. It’s clear that I love the solution, but even better is the team behind ShootProof and their intentions to help photographers succeed. It is with excitement then that we announce this partnership which is set to benefit the whole industry in the UK and further afield!”

ShootProof will launch an amazing Black Friday deal which we’ll share on the Engage blog in the coming days. To find out more about ShootProof click here.
