December 2013 update: I'm no longer working as a photographer

In 2009, I launched a company that makes business software for photographers, and now that company is so successful that I've regretfully had to put my photography business on hold indefinitely. You can find out more about this change on my blog.

If you're looking for a photographer, I'm still in touch with many amazing photographers and would be delighted to recommend them to you if you contact me.

Studio management software for photographers

As soon as any business becomes successful, you run the risk of getting overwhelmed with admin work or missing business opportunities. A photographic studio is no different from any other business in this respect and you can quickly find yourself getting distracted from the reason you decided to set up a photography business in the first place: getting paid to go out and take pictures!

When I started taking on photographic assignments, I used my background as a professional software developer to write my own studio management system. It started out as a very basic system, but quickly grew into something that ran my whole business. Every photographer who saw the system I'd written told me that I should start selling it because they couldn't find anything as comprehensive or easy to use, so in January 2009 I launched Light Blue Software.

Light Blue is Light Blue Software's first product. No matter what type of photography you specialize in, Light Blue is a flexible studio management system that lets you keep on top of shoots, orders and contacts. As well as bursting with clever things to help you to run a busy and successful business, Light Blue also makes it easy to manage your image files, publish them on the web and profit from them.

Built for Mac OS X and Windows using FileMaker's industry-standard database engine, we've developed Light Blue over several years and refined it in real, live studios with professional photographers. It's got a proven record of helping its users to spend more time on shoots and with images, and less time worrying about boring things.
