Who We Are
Photo Solutions is a small graphics company based in Jacksonville Florida. Photo Solutions provides many services such as custom templates for studio photography & sports photography, marketing material templates and other services to help photographers achieve their ultimate goal of providing the best-finished product to their clients. We started out as Spotlight Photographics, focusing primarily on youth sports poster templates and then some years later acquired the company Graphic Authority. When this happened we decided to create Photo Solutions Market to be the official online marketplace for both Spotlight Photographics and Graphic Authority products and designs. Today we have sold our products to over 10,000 photographers all over the United States and worldwide. Because we are committed to helping photographers grow we branched off additional services under the Photo Solutions brand such as SERVO, HYPE, PSU Education and twice a year we host a photography event called the PSU LIVE Workshop.
Our newest addition to the Photo Solutions family of solutions was created based off of the need for youth sports photographers who wanted a dynamic online presence. In 2018 we officially launched the PSM WebSolutions brand which provides photographers with a website that has been built off of the marketing playbooks that we offer at Photo Solutions Market. This new website creation also includes an online e-commerce shopping cart that is integrated with our partners MorePhotos & DDlab. Check out the PSM WebSolutions service at www.psmwebsolutions.com
Once again we started another partnership due to the demand for a quality large format printing solution for the photography industry. In 2017 we launched HYPE which provides a professional large format printing, displays and photo day setup items at wholesale prices. Our goal with HYPE was to provide a premium product that photographers would be able to use for their business and also create products that they could produce for their own clients. We actually use HYPE ourselves for all of our trade show displays, photo day setups, and our entire PSU LIVE Workshop setup! Check out HYPE today at www.psmHYPE.com
We have always had the goal of providing photographers with the templates and marketing materials to enhance their business but we felt like we needed to do more. In 2015 we launched Photo Solutions University, our photography training brand. Then in the summer of 2016, we introduced the first PSU LIVE Workshop in Jacksonville Florida. The PSU LIVE Workshop is still providing in-person training with amazing and talented speakers who provide their knowledge of the industry to photographers in a workshop environment. PSU LIVE is growing and has had attendees from all over the United States. To date, we have also had attendees from Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom! PSU LIVE has sessions two times a year, once in the winter and once in the summer. Visit www.PSULIVEWorkshop.com
With all of the templates created by Spotlight Photographics utilizing extracted images, we had a large number of people asking us if we could extract their images and give them back for them to use in the templates that they purchased. This demand created one of the first partnerships and first Photo Solutions service. Today SERVO extracts thousands of images along with new design services that have been added where you can upload your image and SERVO will extract and design the final product for you! The partnership with the SERVO service has been a massive time saver for our customers and we even use the service ourselves!
With the addition of Graphic Authority in 2013 we decided to merge both Spotlight Photographics (Sports Designs) and Graphic Authority (Studio Resources & Designs) to one online shopping experience. This is when Photo Solutions Market was born. Photo Solutions Market became the official online marketplace for both Spotlight Photographics and Graphic Authority products. As you look through Photo Solutions Market you will notice that it is still to this day organized by Sports Solutions (Spotlight Photographics) and Studio Solutions (Graphic Authority) categories.
We all have to start somewhere. Our story starts with somewhat of a cinderalla story. Back in 2004 we were designing for our own photography company in Paducah Kentucky and after being discovered by some other photographers we were asked if we could make the designs for them as well. With this new service we started Spotlight Photographics. Our primary purpose at the start was just designing and printing designs for other youth sports photographers. After a couple years, and many designs later, we decided to open the doors to our designs and started selling the templates online.
