So on Tuesday the owners of SmugMug came down to hang at the Freedom House and we had a bunch of my friends (who just happen to be insane photographers:) come up for 6 hours of hard core discussion about some of the big needs in the wedding market. SmugMug has been doing an incredible job in the pro-sumer space and when my buddy Rodrigo from CoutureBook introduced me to them a year ago I was baffled because I noticed right away that the level of service they offer to their 100,000 clients is better than anything I saw professionals getting and they were doing it at a fraction of the cost.
So we started throwing ideas around and getting groups together to brainstorm how we could meet some of these needs and I've been beyond impressed. Expect some incredible things from them in the months to come and be sure to find them at WPPI. I think they will be in the booth of the new pro lab they are partnering with. Some of you know who that lab is!
As I get ready for their new PRO release I've already started putting my weddings up there AS WELL as all my personal photos AND video! SmugMug is one of the only solutions that will store an unlimited amount of full resolution photos and video with no compression which I love b/c now I never even keep it on my hard drive. I just store it there and then when I need it I can just download it.
