At The Sweet Setup:
Every week we try to post a new interview with someone about what software they use on their Mac, iPhone, or iPad. We do these interviews because not only are they fun, but a glimpse into what tools someone uses and how they use those tools can spark our imagination and give us an idea or insight into how we can do things better.
Today’s victim, er, interviewee:
I’m Andrew Franciosa, an Upstate New York based photographer. I recently left a large studio in the area where I was the production manager and went independent to start my own studio. I mainly do wedding photography and commerical work.
With Andrew Franciosa Studio, I now have control over every piece of the process, which is important for me. I was initially introduced to the idea of considering the entire customer experience from working for Apple retail for four years, and I have been obsessed with it since. Items like contracts and payments are handled via the web. This makes things easier (Marco brand voice: eliminates onboarding friction), which is an important thing for clients who are already stressed about planning their wedding. And for commercial clients, it’s great because I can get paid faster and online contracts are easy to review, read and archive.
The studio is currently in the north-facing side of my apartment, a converted upholstry warehouse and factory from the early 1900s.
