We know that running a successful photography business these days is very challenging. With the advent of cell phone cameras and social media, the traditional photography business model has changed dramatically.
Today, it is essential for you to offer products and services that set you apart from your competition. Your style, product offering, quality and customer service simply have to represent a higher perceived value than ever before. Sometimes this means rebranding yourself.
That is where we come in. We have the unique products, like stripped canvas prints, one-of-a-kind painter portraits, and large wall portraits that give you a tremendous advantage over your competitors. Many of our products and services are simply not available from other labs. We are working with some of the country’s most successful photographers and we know how to help you be more successful, too.
Now you can bring out the true artist that is within and offer the highest gross margin product at the same time. A product that your clients will treasure for a lifetime and that sets you apart as an artist. Our Painter Portraits rival freehand oil paintings!
Our Hand-Stripped Canvas prints are done the old-school way that most labs have long since abandoned. But no other technique gives you the beautiful texture, glow and feel of one of our canvas prints coated with real lacquer. This product is a definite upgrade from gallery wrap prints!
As you know, professional photographers today face more competitive challenges than ever before. To be successful, you should build or enhance your brand to separate yourself from the rest. Your brand is a promise and you have to "up your game" and take your business to a higher level through your product and service offering. We have designed a package of services that give you the artistic and competitive edge and helps you define your brand.
"The team at Mid-South helped me to establish myself as a photographic artist by providing a product that helps transform a photograph into an art piece"
The before and after Painter image shown here is a perfect example.
Taking you to the next level is our goal. Success in running a studio today means taking your products from a commodity to unique products and services that the average professional photographer or hobbyist cannot. With today’s advances in digital cameras and software, many products that were once available only to professionals are now easily obtainable by the general public. You need to move to the next level, and we can help. One way is offering custom sizes and large wall portraits, both of which are our specialties.
First, we work to understand what is most important to your clients and then help you develop a plan that will produce results that actually meet or exceed your client’s expectations.
Our clients tell us that one of the key reasons they use us is the personalized service that we provide and that they don’t get from any other lab. We know you by name, not by a number. When you call, you talk with a person. And, you can talk with management, customer service or with the technicians who produce your work. We want to get to know you better and build relationships that last. Our unique, smaller size gives us that opportunity.
As one client put it: "Having worked in the industry for almost 30 years now, and used a variety of labs out there, I can say that the personal customer service is absolutely unique among photographic labs in our industry."
