Microsoft Pro Photo Shoot, Do You Need It?

Microsoft is offering a helping hand to professional and very involved amateur photographers by way of its Pro Photo Shoot, a software add-in for Microsoft Office Outlook.

Pro Photo Shoot allows photographers to add details of the client and equipment for a photo shoot appointment in Outlook, leveraging Outlook’s organizational functionality so you don’t forget anything before and after a photo shoot. You may download it from here.

Do you need to bring two or ten lenses? List it down with Pro Photo Shoot. Which camera should you bring, the Canon EOS-1D Mark III or the Nikon D300? List it down with Pro Photo Shoot.

Do you need Pro Photo Shoot? My photographer uncle Ed just writes them down on a piece of paper, sometimes he just lists them up on his head and never bothers to write anything, much less fire up his PC and type in what he needs to bring.

But hop on over anyway to Todd Newman’s post at Microsoft, Never Forget a Lens Again; he just might convince you to try and bring in Microsoft’s helping hand in your photo shoot, link below.
