"Everything's filtered right [to my dashboard], and [I'm] able to sort and filter and manage all the clients and dates and times and payments all in one spot. It's been fantastic. Everyone's willing to answer questions, no matter what time of day I reach out.

I am sure Focal is the future. Everything is clearly laid out and easy for customers to book. Customers can find what they're looking for in minutes or less. It’s also so convenient because instead of writing emails explaining stuff and usually confusing the customer, Focal answers all their questions for me and some more.

Focal has given me the chance to connect not just with clients, but within the photography community. It’s been amazing to be so supported by a dedicated and passion-fuelled team. Focal sees the value in photographers and are always committed to delivering incredible experiences to their clients. I love being a part of that!

FAQs

Let's answer some of your questions

What happens when I schedule a demo?

Our demo calls usually go 30-45 minutes. We want to get to know you and your business before we explore how Focal could improve your workflow. Once we've introduced ourselves, we'll take you through a demo of the platform to show you exactly how you would set up your portfolio, connect it to your website, and take bookings. Then, if you're ready to sign up, we'll apply a free trial of the Partner plan and take you through the registration process step-by-step. Most photographers get their Focal Portfolios set up and integrated into their website the same day and are taking bookings by the evening.

I already have an investments page on my website. How is Focal different?

We’ve designed our packages and portfolios to go beyond the usual “X number of photos for $Y” formula. We feel it’s missing a major piece of the picture: telling your story as a photographer — and in turn, conveying value. What makes you special as a photographer? What do you do that nobody else can do? We’ve built our packages to put your story front and center.

Imagine you’re shopping for a camper van. The first three places you visit list only the price and the miles per gallon. But then you come to a lot where the salesperson takes you into an RV, makes a fist, and punches the roof. They tell you how the RV was built to withstand heavy snowfall during the winter. The roof is stronger and more durable than other models. Which camper van are you going to remember?

Which Focal plan is for me: Starter or Partner?

We designed the Focal Starter plan to be an end-to-end solution for newer photographers looking for a professional system to start commercializing their business. It includes all the tools you would need to start offering and booking shoots — and is so simple you can get set up in a day.

Our Partner plan is geared toward seasoned photographers who are booking more than $500 in shoots per month. It allows you to take full control of your branding by using your own custom domain and includes a Focal Marketplace listing so your dream clients can find you.

How does Focal help me book more clients?

Instead of being ghosted after sending your prices, or having customers visit your website and bouncing, Focal provides you with tools to convert more of those leads. Our portfolios and packages focus on what make you unique as a photographer — a formula that leads to better matches with your clients and happier, long-term customers.
