FAQs for what to do after your photo session.
1. You will receive an e-mail that will tell you that your photos are available to view online.
2. Once images are ready, go to www.shamusphoto.com and click on “Find Your Images.”
3. There, you will see one image from your photo shoot. Click on that to see your full selection.
4. You will see two galleries on this page.
– One is named “Session Images.” Those are all of the pictures taken during your shoot.
– The other is named “Photographer Selects.” Those are just a few images that I’ve selected as my favorites. Those photos have been toned and retouched so you can see what a final print-ready image looks like.
5. When you click on either of the galleries, you’ll be asked to enter your password. Use the password we discussed at your photo review. It should also be in the email.
6. Next, you MUST create an account on this Web page.
– First, click on “My Account” on the upper right side of your screen.
– Then, choose “Sign up for free account.” By creating this account, the website will remember you after you pick your favorite images for your lightbox. Your lightbox allows you to cluster your favorite images together and view only them.
– IF YOU DO NOT CREATE AN ACCOUNT AND START SELECTING IMAGES IN A LIGHTBOX, YOUR CHOICES WILL DISAPPEAR ONCE YOU CLOSE THE WEB PAGE.
7. Start viewing your images and adding your favorites to your Lightbox. This will allow you to lump your favorite images together.
8. The first time you view your Lightbox, you will find the letters N/A where the photos appear. To fix this, just click on “share” and then share the Lightbox with me (Gregory Shamus), and your images will appear.
9. You can download any of your images to share with family and friends. Just click on the image you want and then the download button up top.
10. Try to get your Lightbox down to about 25 images — give or take a few. This will give us a nice sample size to use for ordering prints. Remember, you can order prints of any images from your session at anytime, so don’t worry about taking an image out of your Lightbox.
11. Once you have made your selections, contact me (734-552-1288 or firstname.lastname@example.org) to schedule your photo review and make your print order.
Have fun, and if you have any additional questions, please feel free to give me a call (734-552-1288).
