JB Sallee is Named WPPI Member of the Month
BIG thanks are in order to WPPI for naming JB Sallee as the December 2014 Member of the Month! This is now the second time Sallee Photography has been named “Member of the Month” by Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) in the past decade. In 2004 JB was named the first ever Hy Sheanin Scholarship winner. This scholarship was JB & DeEtte’s first exposer to continuous education at a professional level. They both owe a lot of gratitude towards WPPI and then President Skip Cohen and Arleen Evens for helping to pave their path in the industry of Professional Portrait and Wedding Photography. Without their help, Sallee Photography most likely would not exist today.
“One of the first things we learned at our first WPPI convention was that only 5% of small business make it in their first 5 years and the numbers are even less for Professional Photographers. Trough organizations like WPPI, we have learned that one of the tried and true ways to make it is to sell professional prints, album and products. It seems so simple but so many just can’t place the correct value on their products and services and end up just giving away their hard work on a CD. Many photographers think that giving their clients the digital files and leaving it to them to figure out how to print the files is good customer service. We feel passionate that this is not the best way and we are now seeing the tide shift as many of our brides and portrait clients are wanting finished professional products. For many years we have been hearing about past experiences where our clients tried another studio that only offered a “Shoot and Burn” type package. We were not surprised that many of them came back to us because they were disappointed in the quality of files and also the fact that they had no idea how to get a nice wall portrait or Holiday card printed. They felt abandoned and dissatisfied with the shoot + burn process! We have made it our point to hold the clients hand all the way through the process and deliver 100% perfection with every print and portrait delivered. Because of this we have made it 12 years in business and we love to spread the word and help other pro photographers wanting more out of business! We can’t thank WPPI for starting us off on the right foot and teaching us such a valuable lesson!”
