Holdfast Gear MoneyMaker
The MoneyMaker camera harness has been updated
with an all-new buckle. The Chestnut and Tan versions
feature new leather that’s less absorbent (so go ahead and
sweat) and softer. The MoneyMaker includes a removable
shoulder pad and d-rings. It’s designed to hold between
one and three cameras, depending on your configuration.

Anyone who’s ever wrestled with
flimsy film flash gels knows it’s a
pain. With the MagGel, fitting gels
onto your speed light is as simple as
fitting the modifier to the magnetic
MagGrip. You can fit up to three gels
in the MagGel holder. •

The Wild West may be a distant memory, but
you can still swagger around like the town
sheri; with a pair of DSLRs hanging from your
hip with this harness system. Tough enough
for a pair of DSLRs weighing a combined 7

to your camera’s tripod socket with a ball hinge
that slides in and out of the waist-worn holster.

Paul Pruitt Photography have a wealth of
knowledge to share about both being behind
the camera and running a business.
Here are their top tips for boosting in-person
photography sales. ►
• ALLOW PRINTED PRODUCTS TO SHINE ON
YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA CHANNELS.
Simply posting a digital image online gives
the public the perception that you deliver
digital images. Instead, post the deliverables: a
canvas hanging on a wall or photos displayed
in an album.
• SHOW WHAT YOU SELL.
You have heard it before, and it’s true. It’s
nearly impossible to sell the invisible—make it
known. And don’t go cheap on your samples.
This will set the stage for the quality and
pricing that you will be known for.
• SET THE STAGE FOR SUCCESS. First
impressions do matter. When doing in-person
sales meetings you need to control the
setting of the meeting itself. Eliminate all
distractions. Appeal to all five senses.
• PRACTICE MAKES PERMANENT. When
was the last time you practiced your sales
presentation? The highest-paid leaders in
every industry practice their craft on a

SELLING THE EXPERIENCE.
If you’ve never purchased a high-end
product, we recommend that you do so.
