Organizing Client Galleries For Photographers

For Photographers

Happy Tuesday, friends!! We made it through Monday (whew!) and the work week is officially in gear! One of my past workshop attendees + mentoring clients, the oh-so-fabulous Rachel, posted a wonderful question in the workshop Facebook group and I have decided to answer it in today’s blog post! She asked how I organize + deliver online galleries to my clients. So, I am going to walk you step-by-step through the gallery delivering process!

For online galleries, I use an online gallery program called PASS. I absolutely ADORE PASS, and I have found that it is the best program out there for my business. It is 100% free for all of my senior portrait galleries and provides 10 years of back-up, unlimited downloads for my clients, gorgeous user-friendly galleries and an easy-to-understand workflow! PASS is free to download, so I would definitely recommend giving it a try and seeing what you think!!

When you open PASS, the first screen you see is a list of your most recent galleries and the option to create a new gallery. You simply drag + drop images into the window to start uploading a new gallery!

While a new gallery is uploading, PASS prompts you to name the gallery and choose what type of session it is. I name the session with the client’s names (Sarah and Austin) and then what type of photography it is (wedding, senior, sweetheart, engagement)!

Then, PASS asks you for your client’s name and email address. However, I do something a little tricky! If you give PASS your clients email, you will be able to directly email the link to their gallery from the PASS application. But, sometimes, that email ends up in your client’s “junk” folder because it is coming from an application and not a real person! So, instead of entering my clients information, I enter “test” for the name and “test@test.com” for the email! This way, PASS can’t contact my clients, because I want to be the one that communicates with them and shares their gallery link with them directly!

Once you click “next”, you can see all of the images you have uploaded into your gallery and re-order them, organize them into collections and add new photos. You can also click “done” in the bottom right corner to complete the gallery.

Once you click done, you screen will look like this:

You can then click “view online” and copy that link into a client email to send them their beautiful gallery! DONE!

If you have any questions about gallery organization or delivery, feel free to ask them in the comments!!
