Help us develop the eCardPRO to replace the printed business card?

Printed business cards are a staple of commerce worldwide, yep most business people communicate electronically.  We want to use the wonderful autoediting technology that combines photos+video+audio+graphics for us to make one perfectly edited video file that we photographers shoot, upload, then the system delivers the eProduct – and an additional sales message.  THAT’s the upshot to learning hybrid.

Here’s an example of how we can shoot one still photo, two segments of video+audio, of one businessperson, then add in one screenshot of a webpage and a few pieces of data and make an eCard.  The shoot itself takes less than 3 minutes, we setup in a conference room to shoot 50 employees in a day with one production station.  Sounds like a profitable idea to me? :  )

About the Author:

Will Crockett, commercial hybrid photographer, photo technology developer, and webTV personality is focused on learning how to master hybrid imaging. The skillful blend of photo+video+audio is clearly the future of photography, but how do we shoot and shape and share and sell these hybrid "eProducts"? Dunno, but with Will Crockett as the technical genius and unstoppable force behind this transition from shooting still photos into creating pictures with depth and dimension we will surely figure it out! : ) Will is an open, honest, bright guy that shares what he learns here on this website about hybrid, eProducts, mirrorless cameras, and all the wonderful software tools that allow us to make better, smarter images for share or the sell. For years, non-pro photographers and pros alike have seen Will's videos, gone to his fun live events, and learned how to be a smarter photographer. Take a look at Will's current (and classic) images at willcrockett.pro, his consulting work for clients big and small at CrockettCo.com, and the great info on hybrid eProducts and mirrorless cameras on hybridphoto.pro, and of course his premium videos at thephotochannel.pro. Will is credited with the construction of the Lumix Luminary talent team, and the Fujifilm Elite Talent team, and is our "coach" of the Hybrid Heroes.

    Good idea.
    You need to better illustrate what hybrid photography is with a brief video-stills clip. Or at least mention that what they are viewing is an example of such. The explanation as it stands may not be enough to get the concept over to those hearing it for the first time

    Great stuff Will! Your e-card needs to show more products in the video. I realize your e-card is doing that but your clients won’t be selling e-cards they will be selling a product or service or a line of both. Try adding a little more to the video showing what you can do or have done. Describe some products and services you provide with quick fades from one to another. We need to show how to connect a product and a company to a face and a name of their representative. Also think how we can get the contact info to migrate into contact logs, phone directories etc. or store the e-card file in those directories.
