Several photographers have requested that I create a template from my Style Guide that they can use for their own studios. I'm so happy to have my very first Glamour Guide Template available to order now!
A Style Guide is the perfect way to excite your glamour clients into bringing incredible wardrobe options, helping you get more sellable shots and diversity in your portfolio.
The full, glamour specific text and dress style images will be included, and is fully editable. Simply add your own logo, cover image, and contact information; and the Style Guide will be ready to send to the printer of your choice.
The download includes two template formats. The first format is an accordion card (for print), which is perfect to give to each client at her consultation, or to include in a shoot prep packet in the mail. The second is a magazine format, which can be used both digitally (as a PDF format only) and/or for print.
While the files were created with PROdpi in mind, WHCC and most print houses can use the same templates. Please double check with your own printer that the formatting is exact to their specifications before ordering your final printed Style Guide.
Keep in mind that this product includes digital files only, and that you will need to order the print products as part of a separate transaction with your preferred printer. Also note that fonts are not included with your download, and may need to be purchased online (for around $30).
For those who prefer a digital version of the Style Guide, you must save the files as a PDF document which can either be emailed directly to your client or you can uploaded to ISSUU. (ISSUU is a document hosting service that gives your PDF the look of a magazine, with the option of embedding your Style Guide right on your own website.)
If you opt for the version without Dress images, one of the most exciting features included in your template download is the ability to arrange and place your own images using Lightroom. This is much faster and easier than having to place, size, and position each image individually. In the following tutorial video, you can see exactly how to use this time-saving feature.
Another really helpful feature included with your download is a set of Photoshop Actions designed to make exporting your final customized PSD files into usable JPG and PDF formats. The JPG files will be what you send to your printer, while the PDF files can be used digitally. Here's the tutorial video where I explain how to get the most out of the Photoshop Action Set. The video also teaches how to upload your final PDF file to ISSUU.
Your download will come with a full tutorial booklet which is designed to take you through the entire process, from download to export. Combine it with the helpful tutorial videos, and you will have everything you need to quickly create a beautiful and professional Style Guide for your clients.
