TOP TRENDS | VOGUE VENDOR

We are so excited to have one of our Vogue Vendors spotlighted today!  Magazine Mama!
Cindy, please describe your business: Magazine Mama helps photographers “turn pages to profit” with beautifully designed studio magazine templates, professionally written articles to promote their studios, and workshop curriculum to teach basic DSLR photography to kids and adults.

What makes your product/service unique? Our focus is helping photographers be successful by providing them with marketing materials and workshop curriculum that they can use to make additional income during the off-seasons.

Tell us how your product/business came about: The idea for Magazine Mama came about when I decided to combine my love for photography with my love for publishing. At the time I was publishing two local wedding guides and had been photographing weddings for 10 years, so it seemed like a natural transition. The curriculum side of the business was started by my husband who is also a photographer. He used to be a teacher in Japan (which is where we met and got married), so he combined his teaching background with his love for photography.

What is your most popular product/service? Our most popular products are a toss up between the wedding magazine template and our teaching curriculums. My personal favorite is our Basic Digital Photography Curriculum for Kids. By the way, if you haven’t downloaded the freebie on the website you can do so here:http://www.magazinemama.com/collections/all-templates/products/5x7-flat-card-engaged

Jean is an on location photographer living in New Hudson, Michigan with her husband and four little boys.

She likes to consider herself a natural light photographer, but madly loves incorporating off camera flash into her work as well. Jean is incredibly passionate about photography and teaching others. She, along with her rad husband, Travis, teach photography workshops in Michigan and around the country.
