In this presentation by Cathi Nelson, the founder and CEO of The Photo Managers, we will explore the benefits of becoming a photo manager and discover how you can turn your love for photos into a rewarding and successful business.
The Rise of Professional Photo Organizers
Twenty years ago, professional photo organizers were virtually unheard of, but today they are rapidly becoming household concepts. People take billions of digital photos each year with the prevalence of mobile devices as our ever-ready cameras. Unfortunately, most people have not kept pace with technology to efficiently manage and curate these collections. Consequently, people are overwhelmed and frustrated with their growing photo collections, creating a demand for professional photo organizers.
A Diverse and Vibrant Community
The photo organizing business attracts individuals from diverse backgrounds and professions. Members of The Photo Managers community come from over 20 countries.

The Growing Need for Photo Organizers
With over ten thousand baby boomers reaching retirement age every day, many individuals are considering downsizing and wondering what will happen to their cherished photo collections. This creates an opportunity for photo organizers to step in and assist these families in preserving their memories for future generations. Additionally, natural disasters like floods, fires, tornadoes, and hurricanes reinforce the importance of organizing and digitizing physical photo collections.
The Benefits of Professional Photo Organizing
Photo organizers offer invaluable services to their clients, from organizing analog photos and digitizing them to managing digital photo collections stored on various platforms. They also help clients with sentimental photo collections, and preserving family memories for generations to come.
