PRESS RELEASE: Introducing StudioShare for iPhone: First Professional Photo Proofing and Sales App
Free Application from DigiLabs Enables Professional Photographer Clients to Browse and Place Orders via iPhone
Palo Alto, Calif., WPPI Booth #737 — March 8, 2010 — DigiLabs Pro (http://digilabspro.com), which provides professional photographers with a comprehensive, cost-effective and flexible online proofing and fulfillment solution, today at the Wedding Professional Photographers International (WPPI) 2010 Convention and Trade Show announced the release of StudioShare, the first iPhone application to give professional photographers a new outlet to market to customers. This free application, available immediately on the iTunes Store, allows pro photographer clients access to their photos and the ability to place orders anytime, anywhere from their iPhone.
StudioShare is the only application that provides professional photographers, from wedding to event to school photographers, the ability to take and fulfill critical orders and generate revenue from the immense audience of millions of iPhone users. With StudioShare, photographers' clients can review their images and place orders. As with the flagship DigiLabs web galleries, the application can be tailored to a photographer's own distinct brand and is seamless to their customers.
"The continued popularity of smartphone devices, particularly the iPhone, should open an enormous revenue channel for independent professional photographers. Most pros, however, don't have the resources to work directly with the iPhone technology", said Chanan Steinhart, CEO and co-founder of DigiLabs. "StudioShare breaks down that barrier for pro photographers and lets them both manage their galleries and receive orders on the iPhone. With improved marketing and sales outlet, photographers should find StudioShare a welcome boost to their businesses."

"There have been many times recently that I've wished I could have viewed a client gallery from my iPhone, and I know for a fact that my clients want the same thing," said Ben Chrisman, a professional photographer who maintains a web gallery using DigiLabs software. "With StudioShare, clients can instantly view and show their photos to friends and family and then quickly place their order. This is like having a personal iPhone app for our photo business and I really look forward to offering StudioShare to my current and potential clients this year."
