All you need to manage your photography business

Light Blue helps you to get organised, manage your business, master your finances, delight your clients, and focus on what's important - taking great pictures.

Manage your enquiries, clients, and bookings

Light Blue helps you to stay organised, by bringing all of the information that you need to run your business together into one convenient place.

All your jobs, all in one place

New enquiries can flow into Light Blue straight from your website (or be entered manually), and you'll get reminders to follow them up too. Once you've got a shoot in Light Blue, you can keep everything you need to know about it together in one place.
