ShootQ offers three monthly pricing plans to meet every studio’s needs.
And remember, the 40% off savings from Simply Color Lab will more than pay for your ShootQ membership!
Our valued members are our number-one priority. Once you become a ShootQ member, it is our mission to help you run your business as smoothly as possible, so you can spend more time being creative and less time doing paperwork. Our software-as-a-service (SaaS) delivery model allows you to get work done whether you are in the office or on the go.
Although ShootQ was developed by photographers, for photographers, many of our members have found it useful in other types of service-oriented businesses, including event planners, videographers and DJs, among others. ShootQ allows you to easily keep track of tasks, schedule appointments, book and sign contracts online, communicate with clients and prospects, manage your leads and more.
A relationship with ShootQ goes well beyond client and vendor. We pride ourselves on top-notch customer service, offering the only live phone support in the industry as well as email support, complimentary 1:1 setup assistance, Accredited Consulting Experts (ACEs), and multiple online and self-service training options to suit your needs and preferences.
Our dedicated customer service team is here five days a week, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific Time, Monday through Friday. But they aren’t your average call center reps; they are ShootQ experts, and many are photographers just like you. They understand the ins and outs of the photography industry and can help you maximize ShootQ’s capabilities, which means you can run your business more efficiently.
In addition to our free one-month trial, we also offer complimentary 1:1 setup assistance, where we walk you through the process, so you aren’t left to figure it out for yourself. This way, you can get up and running faster, and start taking advantage of all the benefits ShootQ offers you and your business. And if you are just too busy, you can hire one of our Accredited Consulting Experts (ACEs) to do it for you.
ShootQ offers a variety of training materials to suit your preferences and business needs. In addition to live phone support and 1:1 setup assistance, your ShootQ membership includes training webinars, online video training, a comprehensive knowledgebase and a community forum with the biggest network of photographers, who happily share their expertise, advice and best practices.
Competitor solutions didn’t have everything I needed. ShootQ had everything I was looking for and the price was good—I didn’t need to look any further. It has definitely saved me a lot of headaches over the years, so the investment was worth it. You will see the benefits over time for sure.
We’ve gotten hundreds of leads in the last two years, and there would have been no way to track them without ShootQ! Thanks for helping us grow our business!
ShootQ was so far ahead of any other solution out there. Having our workflows setup to automate things was a huge piece for us. Now we automate as much as possible – invoices, emails, lead generation, etc. – I didn’t want to do that work and needed to focus on growing my business. It’s much more efficient and takes less time. I don’t know how anyone has a studio without this program.
ShootQ has completely turned my business downside up! Instead of a desk with a thousand sticky notes I have this ‘lil program keeping everything organized. I love it! One of my favorite features is the contact history – being able to store all conversations & emails in one place is so awesome. Never again will I have to scramble to figure out what conversation was with what bride and about what. ShootQ has been the best investment thus far for my business (outside the camera equipment of course!). Instead of 4 or 5 systems I was using to stay organized, I now have one that does it all: package info, past conversations, invoices, notes, vendor info… it’s as if I have an assistant! What will I do while ShootQ is working for me? Am I supposed to say going to Disneyland?! But, seriously, with this program I can worry less about my business & enjoy a glass of wine after a good hike or an extra trip to the dog park with my pups.
Instead of hiring an office manager we got ShootQ. We are new to the photography business and had booked thirty-five weddings after being in business for less than a year. We had to find a solution to manage our office. ShootQ, we love you. At least once a week we say to each other, “What would we do without ShootQ?” Your customer service is second to none.
ShootQ is so fully featured and geared toward my business, it made the most sense for me. I’m a very happy user!
I can’t imagine my business without ShootQ. I don’t know what I would do!
We want to focus on art, and ShootQ definitely lets you do that.
ShootQ completely changed the way I run my business. The tools are fantastic! They got me organized.
ShootQ is like a person’s job. I don’t need a studio manager anymore. It saves quite a bit in the long run.
I didn’t consider anything else. There is really no comparison to ShootQ.
ShootQ has been great for my studio because I am not bogged down in front of my computer all day taking care of administrative tasks. It allows me to focus on growing my business for the future.
I’m a huge fan of ShootQ and consider the day I started using it life changing for both my personal life and business. I’ve integrated into my photography business to the point that I cut my client email times down from 15-20 hours a week to 3-4 hours a week. We never lose track of a lead or contract, all while shooting 40 weddings a year! Because of ShootQ and the editing process I developed (it only takes me 5 hours to completely edit, touch up, blog and deliver photos to clients), we have so much free time left over that we had time to open a wedding venue in Kentucky AND launch a client gifting service which is growing in leaps and bounds. ShootQ has definitely changed our lives for the better.
Results: Faster booking process, better contact management and more streamlined business operations. ShootQ is so fully featured and geared toward my business, it made the most sense for me. I’m a very happy user!
When Anne Almasy first learned about ShootQ, she had a small business and didn’t think she could budget for a software solution. “Looking back, I do wish I had bought in to ShootQ at that point,” she said. ShootQ also makes the contract process much more seamless. Preparing and sending a contract only takes a few minutes, and clients can sign them online.Read
Results: Smooth operations, tons of saved time and no hassles or headaches. Competitor solutions didn’t have everything I needed. ShootQ had everything I was looking for and the price was good—I didn’t need to look any further.
When Leeann Marie started her photography business, The Leeann Marie Collective, she knew making an investment upfront was imperative. For her, that meant setting up ShootQ before she had any clients. “Getting setup was pretty intuitive,” she recalls. “Plus, ShootQ provides support and setup help for people who haven’t used it yet. When I booked my first wedding, I was able to hit the ground running.”Read
Results: Customized workflows, automated processes and improved collaboration. It felt really good to get stuff worked out, because I was not doing a good job before; I was winging it and had to figure it out. The amount of time saved in the first month has made up for the time it took to setup – I’ve gained five years of efficiency with ShootQ.
In order to focus on growing your business, it’s important to have a solid management solution in place. Before implementing ShootQ, Sara France was using a “crazy, ridiculous” spreadsheet to track her things to do, and the order in which to do them. “It was insane to manage,” she said. Enter ShootQ, and it was a whole new world.Read
Results: Automated communications, marketing to all leads and growing business much faster. I like that no matter what type of work or photography you do, ShootQ is really useful and has every feature imaginable. I really love it!
Boudoir and women’s portrait photographer Molly Marie has been using ShootQ since she launched her professional photography business seven years ago. “I was looking for something where I could keep track of all my clients,” she recalls. “When first starting, it is easy, but then you grow and it gets a lot harder. I am always trying to save time and stay organized, so I can grow in other areas.”Read
Results: Little to no paper, streamlined operations and easy access to information. We can manage everything in one place with ShootQ, and we have gotten rid of a lot of paperwork, which can be overwhelming. ShootQ provides better options.
After 20 years in business, Misty Miotto and her team have an impressive number of weddings to their credit – more than 1,400 and counting. During the busy season, they often shoot six weddings a week! Given this volume, smooth operations are imperative to have any life outside of work.Read
Results: Automated and streamlined processes, less work and more time to shoot. ShootQ is really so important to me. I have so much invested in it. I can sit back and take pictures while ShootQ runs my business for me.
Before Don Bryant Thompson signed up for ShootQ, he had 500 pounds worth of paper files. His processes were “archaic” and required a lot of unnecessary work. “ShootQ completely changed the way I run my business,” he said. “The tools are fantastic! They got me organized.”Read
Results: Automated processes; saved 20 hours per client; gained more time to spend with family. If you want to take your business to the next level and run it better, ShootQ is one of the essential pieces of the puzzle!
Abbey Kyhl never planned to be a photographer, but after years as an advertising executive, photography found her. Driven and self-taught with a lot of passion and dedication, she began her photography career shooting portraits. Now, eight years later, Abbey enjoys a referral-only business and a work-life balance to envy with ShootQ’s help.Read
Results: Streamlined business processes and ability to support more growth. Looking back, l really can’t believe we used to do it the old-fashioned way. I shoot weddings full time and have three associate photographers who do the same. It wouldn’t be doable without ShootQ.
Holli B started using ShootQ more than five years ago. Previously, she used old-fashioned paper files and checklists to manage her business, but she couldn’t access information and task lists from outside her studio. “I had to physically be in the studio to see where clients stood in process,” Holli recalls.Read
Results: Better organization, smooth collaboration and more time to shoot. If anything should happen to my studio, everything is backed up online and accessible via ShootQ. It gives me one less thing to worry about.
A ShootQ user for more than five years, Carla recalls, “It was the only thing at the time. There was so much talk about how to stay organized, how to run your studio, etc. My PUG (Photographer User Group) shared information about ShootQ and discussed it. It’s a very analytical group, so we went through all the pros and cons. Once one of our group members signed up, it picked up like wildfire. It just made sense.”Read
Results: More time to shoot, new associate photographers and a consistent experience for all customers. ShootQ has been an invaluable part of my studio from the very beginning! Between implementing ShootQ or hiring a full-time office manager, ShootQ is a much more affordable option.
Jeremy Chou started his career as an architect. He was successful and had a good job, but something was missing: creativity. Initially picking up a camera for a creative outlet outside of work, Jeremy soon booked his first wedding. Then his bookings started to pickup, and after 30 months and nearly 50 weddings, he was able to leave his old job and run his professional photography business full time.Read
