What is a Personal Photo Organizer?

Posted by ed oboyle on Tue, Feb 21, 2012 @ 09:55 AM
appoMost of us don’t really mean to welcome clutter into our lives, but balancing a busy work, family, and social life usually leaves organizing, especially photo organizing, dangling at the bottom of our mental to do list. Thankfully, these tasks generally just require a bit of discipline, but in other cases, the job calls for the help of a Personal Photo Organizer (PPO).

With the popularity and affordability of digital cameras and camera phones, many of us are sitting on a virtual heap of digital images. Combine that with all of those hard copies we always meant to stick in an album and suddenly we’re in over our heads. This is exactly where your PPO comes in! With a PPO, you’re not just getting sticky notes and labeled boxes, you’re enlisting the help of someone dedicated to telling your story.

Through images, words and creativity, there’s  much you can expect from a PPO:
    • Highly personalized, one-on-one consultations
    • Brainstorm sessions on how best to tell a story for a special event or gift
    • Help in implementing a customized system for organizing your current and future catalogue of photos
    • Advice on digitizing photos or how to select the best photo scanning service
    • Training in digital photo management basics
    • Creatively designed photo books, scrapbooks, and visual storyboards

Basically, a PPO will collaborate with you on everything from setting up a digital catalogue to an unforgettable gift for your parents’ 25th anniversary. You can find an Association of Personal Photo Organizers (Appo) Certified PPO in your area here.

The Association of Personal Photo Organizers (Appo) provides support and education for entrepreneurs looking to build a photo organizing business, and educates the public on the need for photo organizing services. To learn more, visit appo.org.
