    An IPad2 would keep my husband and I from fighting over our computer when I want to edit 200 pics while he’s wanting to be online. He could browse the web on the Ipad while I edited!

    I love the idea of seeing if certain shots are focused & sharp as I think they are, I also think it would be a great device to showcase my portfolio to my clients.

    The ipad 2 would totally change my life! Honestly. I just had a recent technology crisis. My MacBook Pro got the death screen and I cant afford to fix it right now or progress with my personal photography business without a computer. I would love to be able to import my backed up photos and use the ipad to showcase my work. I would be thilled to win the ipad!

    Liz Marcum says:

    I just started my photography business late last year and this iPad2 would help tremendously! I think I would most like to be able to tether it to my camera during shoots to check the shots as I take them.

    The iPad2 would be a tremendous help to my business. I’m still in the start up phase and would love the opportunity to add this tool to my business. It has been on my equipment wishlist for quite some time, what an awesome way to acquire one, win it! Thanks Jodi for your great giveaways!

    Jennifer says:

    An Ipad would be an amazing tool for my photography business because I could carry my portfolio around with me. You always come across a potential customer at the coffee shop etc, so I think it would be an amazing asset to use the ipad like a portfolio and electronic business card.

    BrieAnn says:

    HOw an Ipad would change my photography business, well as I’m a pretty new photographer, it would help me grow. It would be wonderful to have a slideshow right with me, and to be able to show clients some of the pictures before I left them/the shoot.

    Kelly Manley says:

    It will help me to show my clients to help them to pick the capture I made for them and it will be easy access just to touch and let them pick what they wanted to have them print or on DVDS. I don’t make much of money and it’s really hard to get one. I am dealing with tough in my life still. My ipad got stolen couple months ago and police can’t do anything. Also I would like to keep in touch with my family using webcam since I don’t see them in like almost 3 years. This would help my business to run smoother and improved my work. Please give me a chance to have my business improve and bring my clients smile.

    Michelle Hires says:

    Having an iPad would allow me to be more mobile when showing a client their galleries. I find lugging a laptop around to be a bit bulky and I think the look of an iPad is just very professionl.

    Katrina Flaws says:

    Having an iPad would help me tremendously with my photography business. For the longest time since I started photography (10 years ago) I wanted to get a laptop, but since the iPad came out and can help me accomplish what I need with previewing images immediately at t-ball photo-shoots with parents, to making sure I hit the tack sharp image before leaving the scene. This would be a great benefit for me to enhance my business and client interactions. Not to mention my kids are homeschooled and would LOVE for mom to have one for educational games “on the fly” while traveling to our next destination.

    Having an IPAD2 would definitely help me showcase to clients on the go about my portfolio, my skills, and different ideas available for photography. It also helps my friends and family without internet connection see what I have been doing and the kinds of skills I have learned. Thanks for much for this giveaway!

    Thresa Ruggles says:

    An IPad would let me review pictures quickly to edit out the “discards” and save myself time in transferring to lightroom. It would give my clients that instant gratification they seek and would also help with the business end of things.

    I’m not a pro but photography is a hobby. The iPad2 would make my life easier in lots of ways but mostly I’d just like to reclaim my iPhone from my hubby who is constantly swiping it to surf the web in the evenings on the couch. :)

  35. 35
    Amber says:

    An iPad would be awesome for my business! To be able to take it on a shoot and have all the paperwork I need and the ability to have them sign on the actual iPad would be great! Also, would be great to have picture ideas on it as well as my own pictures on it to show clients!! Would love to win this! Thanks for the chance! :) :) :)

    Winning an iPad 2 would be such an easy way to show different media formats for purchase. I could set up a slideshow on the iPad for client proofing. Not to mention the killer apps!!

    Deborah says:

    I would LOVE to win one for my daughter to use because it would help her with her Speech! Her Speech teacher uses one with her all the time…and I wish she had one at home!

  44. 44

    It would be a game changer! I would be able to set up in home viewings for each shoot to go through pictures with my clients! And when I do pet shoots I would be able to share all the images on pick up (right now they just order full length or close up) and allow them to order on the spot!! The possibilities are endless!

  45. 45
    Jodi Sware says:

    Oh, i’ve been coveting an Ipad for quite some time now, but something else always seems to come first. I would love the portability of it, to quickly show images or to look something up on the internet when i’m out working or travelling! Please pick me!

  46. 46
    Melissa Ann says:

    My business has no computer… I share my video gaming husband’s computer which is a desktop. He plays it during the evenings. I chase toddler twins during the day (who mostly want to be outside!) and am stuck editing all my work during naptimes when I should be doing something else. An Ipad2 would let me edit and do business work during sometime other than naptime and even in the backyard. It’d be a great surprise :)

  47. 47
    Ann Daniel says:

    How would I use an iPad 2? Well, all of the time for everything! At home with my kids, to read books, to update my blog and of course, to have some fun with. I’m an amateur photographer and don’t take photos as well as professionals so I would be lying if I could say it would help with a photography business. I’m a Marriage and Family therapist who works mostly with kids and they often create things in session (intricate sand trays that they put a lot of effort into) and I’ve always wanted an iPad so I can upload photos of their creations to so when I go to supevision with my supervisor, we can have a crystal clear and large shot of their creations to discuss.

  48. 48
    Jennifer Welch says:

    We live three states away from our family in FL, so having this iPad2 would make it so much easier to share my images with the grandparents! Plus, I’ve heard it makes for great in-home proofing with clients!

  49. 49
    Cinda B says:

    Wow an IPad2 would let me take my pictures ANYWHERE at anytime. This would be a dream. I could enjoy my family without locking me into the computer room. :)

    Joe Candrilli says:

    An iPad would encourage me to share my images with others rather than hide them on my hard drive.

    Nicole Garcia says:

    I love would an ipad! I dont have business but i’m always taking pictures and i would love to have something to bring with me to my miother-in-laws house. They don’t have a computer, so it’s hard to show them pictures of their granddaughter. This would make it sooo much easier!

  52. 52
    Olga Ford says:

    An ipad 2 would be an excellent way to further my children’s exploration in digital art. They love the doodle buddy and face in hole apps already and would be able to do so much more on the ipad’s large screen. My 8 year old is already interested in learning photography and photoshop. This would be great for me, as well, to be able to share my work very easily.

  53. 53
    Amber says:

    i would absolutely LOVE to win an ipad2… i am a growing photographer and this would be an amazing way to help me learn even more and a great tool to use to show clients photos and information when we meet up for session consults. i would seriously be so grateful and would get so much use out of it. i would just LOVE to win this amazing prize! :)

  54. 54
    Sherry says:

    I would love to have the ipad!!! My laptop is large so it’s hard to carry around to show my photos. The ipad would be great for doing that and would help get my greeting card business mobile.

  55. 55
    Kara C says:

    Oh my goodness.. Please pick me!
    An ipad2 would keep me from hauling around all those physical photos when I go to meet with clients at coffee shops, it would allow me to send replies and update blog/facebook faster when I’m away shooting, and, most importantly, it would keep my soon-to-be five year old son occupied and learning when I’m working on a big project!
    All good thoughts and wellness! :)

    Bobbi Jo says:

    I love the idea of hooking up my camera so I can check see if certain shots are as sharp as I think they are before I move on.

    Laura Yates says:

    I have been lusting after the Ipad 2 since it came out! I would LOVE to be able to carry around a portable portfolio! It would be amazing to have that at my fingertips at all times. I think it would be the most convenient, always at-my-side companion for my business… aside from my cameras and lenses of course ;)

    Atina King says:

    Having an ipad 2 would really help my business. I could let clients view their proofs on a correctly calibrated screen, and could also use it as a digital portfolio. Also, it would allow my kids to be able to do their homework on the ipad, while I’m using the home computer to edit.

  60. 60

    I would love to have an iPad 2 for my growing photography business – I think it would be a very slick device to showcase my portfolio to my clients.

  61. 61
    Antonio says:

    The most obvious improvement would be the fastest way to share the production. It would very easy to involve the customers in the postproduction flow and make it more participative.
    I love the sharing posibilities.

    An I-Pad would help me show my work to potential clients. Instead of just whipping out a card, how great would it be to whip out an I-Pad and actually make an impression on them. I think it would help my business grow by leaps and bounds.

    Mike Le Gray says:

    As an Englishman living in Germany, it can be extremely difficult in finding new portrait clients, especially as my German isn’t very good. I teach at an English school part-time, to supplement my income, and show interested, mature students my best work on my iPhone 4.

    They look really good on there, but of course, the screen is pretty small for that kind of purpose. I’ve wanted an iPad as a portfolio/marketing tool since I first saw one, as I believe it would really help me to convert more of those leads into paying work.

    As an aside, buying English-language books and magazines is very expensive. A $5 dollar magazine costs me nearer to €20-25! I already use the Kindle and iBook software on my iPhone, which is OK, but trying to read my digitally-subscribed magazines (which are far, far cheaper) on Zinio, is really not a satisfying experience.

    If I could afford an iPad, like most, I would buy one, in an instant.

    This could be a real game-changer for me, so thank you at least for the chance of winning one.

    Mike.

    Jackie S says:

    An iPad would be wonderful for sharing pictures at family gatherings. I’m not a professional, but it’s still great to get the instant feedback!

    I would LOVE an iPad too for in-home ordering!! It would me so much easier then lugging a laptop around or even sending them to a gallery online. I am all about the one-on-one with my clients and think that this would just help me go that extra mile for them :)

    PS — Thanks for putting together another awesome give away!! And good luck to everyone!!!

    THe ipad would be an amazing tool for me… Photography is my hobby, an not having a computer for the last 4 years ~ i have pictures in varies locations… To be able to keep them in one place would be great!

    My photography is mainly just a hobby…but is branching out with family and friends! I would LOVE to have access to all of these apps (posing ideas…yay!),without having to lug my laptop around….the ipad can fit right in my camera bag! I can also hope that if I bribe my children with access to it after…that maybe THEY will let me take their picture :) :)

    Having the Ipad would be awesome for all the obvious reasons but as a new photographer it would help me out beyond words. It would help ease my jitters at photoshoots because I could easily look up poses or tips if i were to lose ideas and I would have a way to show potential clients my work. I would love to have this! Thanks for doing this giveaway! :)

    Stacey Payne says:

    Pauline says:

    I am not yet a professional photographer. But I am one in the making. I am planing to soon launch a company of my own. What better then to start it of with an Ipad2 to keep my work neat and tidy from the start!

    And there will be no better time to save some money then now for me!

    Teresa says:

    Don’t have a photography business, but do lead a 4-H photography project and an iPad2 would a great resource tool to show the kids ideas while on field trips and also for my 14-year-old who is becoming quite the photographer herself.

    An iPad would help me edit the many sports photos I take and share of my kids and their teammates. I could bring it to the field and share it with the parents right away. I could also share the photos and do activiteis with my girls scout troop and their parents and organize their badge earning opportunities.

    Barbara says:

    Having an Ipad2 could make a HUGE impact on my life. As a new photographer I invision myself being able to show photos to my clients on the spot without having to be in my home. this could make my business more profitable as people are more likely to purchase on the spot versus having to wait to see proofs. On a personal level I would like to share the Ipad2 with my 9yo son who is autistic. I have learned so much from him. It would make a major impact on him as he is a visual learner. The Ipad2 could encourage him to broaden his horizons of knowledge and increase his academic success.

    Corinne says:

    Ahhh ~ it would be so wonderful to showcase my portfolio to potential clients and galleries to current clients. I could also take all my “paper documents” to a complete digital system with having clients review & sign directly on the ipad (my iphone is just not large enough to do this). I have also thought about some “on the spot” booth type sessions and the ipad would allow me to show clients their product for ordering. YEAH!

    If I had an Ipad…I think I’d be in shock at first and then I’d feel spoiled. =) I feel it would definitely be an advantage for portfolio use. I would use it in this capacity and then enjoy the freedom it offers from my laptop. Ohhh… the possibilities!

    An iPad2 would be awesome for my business! I’m thinking of mostly using it as s posing guide/field guide when I’m out shooting, but also as a fun way to start in-house consultations/viewing sessions (I don’t have a laptio at the moment so it’s pretty much impossible.)

    Keane Chan says:

    the iPad 2 would be great. I am hoping it would be a great saver on my portfolio prints. I am just starting out and have spent $$$ on a printed portfolio. As i need to change images out to tailor towards each shoot, I am looking at my options with the iPad as the portfolio due to the screen size.

It would come in so handy when I’m out with clients and want to show them their photos in a slideshow format.

    I’m building my portfolio at the moment and am hoping to go pro some day soon. The iPad is a photographer’s best friend from what I hear.

I think it could put me on the fast track to going pro. I want one!

    this ipad2 could help me with the starting of my business. I am a military wife and mommy to one toddler! This could help me, since I am still getting my degree in graphic design. (slowly but surely) I also trying freelance work right now, and this iPad2 would help me show my work to customers without any trouble. I could show everything they need without having to meet in my home.

    It really would help me look more professional and give me an edge I truly need to compete. Plus on top of that, I could use with my son. To play movies while traveling, games or v-books. It could be used in so many ways.

    I hope I am chosen!

    I am a local photographer/special education teacher who will be working with junior high age nonverbal, autistic students in the fall. An iPad2 would allow my students to use Apps to communicate. The iPad2 would give us an ability to take pictures of the students environment, their wants, their daily needs and make visual schedules for them to follow. This device can open up a whole new world of communication for them.

  201. 201

    Being able to have a Slideshow at my fingers tips would help so much. Also with having my husband in the Army and him always travel the Facetime & Skype calling would be GREAT.

    I have actually been researching tablets to use as a marketing tool for my photography business. I have a website and business cards, but want to be able to show my photography to anyone who is willing to look at it, without having to wait for them to go home and look up the website, or try to look it up on their phone. It will be a great tool to use at Bridal shows for the same reason. Tablets are expensive and winning an iPad 2 would keep me from having to wait many months while I save up the money!

    Mark says:

    This would be HUGE for me.. I could take it to the racetrack when I’m shooting drag races, and show the guys in the pits some of the photos I’d taken that night… maybe email them a teaser shot to entice them to go to my website to purchase prints. Would LOVE to win this!

    Having and iPad would help tremendously when I go to events such as expos or bazaars to have a beautiful digital portfolio playing. It would also be great for in-person proofing with my clients.

    Andrea says:

    It would allow me to do view and choose session in clients homes instead of bringing prints and I could show my slideshow on it, not to mention all the organizational benefits it would have!

    This would help me in my photography business as a way to not only carry a portfolio easily but as a conversation starter. I sometimes find it hard to figure out my ‘elevator pitch’ but this would make it easier to open up to someone. Thank you for this opportunity to win!

  269. 269

    I would LOVE to win an iPad 2! I’ve attached a photo of the computer that I am currently using to edit portraits with, if clients knew this I’d be in big trouble LOL. I don’t even know what happened to it, one day it was fine, the next day it started with this big black blob. Never been dropped or anything! So basically, an iPad would help my business tremendously by allowing me to edit pictures on it instead of this poor excuse for a laptop, I could show clients their images immediately, I could have internet on the go (which I think I’m one of the only people on the planet to not own a Smart Phone)….the possibilities are endless!

    Shawn IRwin says:

    The Ipad will will be able to give me instant feedback and editing capabilities when on location. Also the ability to post to various online sites instantaneously. It would also do double duty with the day job, for presentations. Possibilities are endless.

    Having an iPad 2 would very much help my business because I could take it on the go, instead of lugging the bulky laptop everywhere I go, and all the apps would be an added bonus. Thanks for this opportunity!

    Ways I would use an iPad 2: HDMI input into tv for bridal shows, client ordering/viewing, slideshows, etc. Emailing clients. Accessing studio manager (tave) from anywhere. In-person client consultations. Signing contracts/model releases. Blogging. Social media. Entering contests online. :)

    Sarah says:

    Being a beginner in such a huge career field is a rough spot to be in. I think on more then one level the Ipad 2 could not only help my growth but expand my horizons as well. Having such a compact device that I could take with me, I could preview pics, I could constantly be reading and learning more everywhere I am and have it nearby on shoots in case I need inspiration or ideas. Organization, client flow, appointments, educational, it is a multi tool of sorts. Something like this not only will help me grow now but will help in the future and grow with any business I create or become apart of. It can be a very cost effective tool that is a priceless mode for work.

    Exciting giveaway! Thanks.

  299. 299

    An ipad2 would help me a ton. My laptop is broken, so I only have my pc to work on. I could bring to my shoots and meetings, so much easier than a laptop!

  300. 300

    The iPad would really help my business. I could use it to proof images while visiting clients. I could also use it to have clients sign releases and organize them electronically.

    Sue FitzGerald says:

    It has always been my dream to be a photographer from the very first film slr I purchased over 20 years ago. This year I have finally decided to do something about it (about time my kids would say, they are tired of being my subject matter,lol), more research and learning, PBing, and practice practice pratice. An Ipad would be an wonderful tool to use in many ways, as a portfolio, a place to store information and of course just for fun too:-)

  333. 333

    This would be HUGE for my business for many reasons, one of them being that I don’t own a laptop and when I meet with clients its just me and my old school folders, I would love to have something small to take with me to show my portfolio, examples of locations etc or to go over the contract and enter things into a digital calender with my clients!

    Staci Kinghorn says:

    I started my business a little over a year ago and it is quickly growing!

    Savannah C says:

    I think an iPad would do wonders for starting my business. It would be great for meetings with potential clients to show them galleries as well as my website. I would also put my pricing on there as well as a copy of what a contract would look like. Then, if they decide they like me enough, I could pull up a calendar and book them! Who knows, maybe eventually I could even get the credit card addition so I could take more than cash or checks!! It’d be so nice to have everything in one place that I can stick in my purse rather than dragging around my laptop in a backpack.

    Wow – I am not a professional photographer in the least, however I love to snap away every day. I want to learn, grow and be comfortable with using my camera and lenses. To expose all the wonderful smiles, faces and expressions of my family and friends and to capture all of this in the best possible ways. An Ipad would help me to learn by searching other websites where ever I go, to continue my passion and obtain inspiration from other photographers and blogs and allow me to grow as a photographer into a self taught artist.

    As a student, I don’t have a lot of extra money and have been building my business slowly–but only with the basics. I don’t have a nice website right now and I’ve been looking to do in-home ordering (going to the clients house and they look at the photos instead of using an online gallery). This would be so much more professional and much easier than the laptop I’m using now. It would also be great to use to show others my portfolio!

    What a great opportunity – a chance to win an iPad! Personally this would help me so much….I keep up with inventory at my day job, and having a computer I could carry around instead of my notepad of paper and transferring it all back to computer would be so very helpful. We also had a break-in at our apartment about a month and a half ago, and have been without a computer at home ever since…I couldn’t do everything I’d like with an iPad, but I could sure do a lot! Talk about a blessing…I’ve been having to fit in all my photography work around when I’m not doing something else at my day job, and I’m falling farther behind every day!

    I would like to have an iPad to take when I travel or out in the field so I could download all my cards and free them up for more photos. The portability has all kinds of advantages. I don’t have a laptop or an iPad so I am chained to my office computer. Thanks for the contest opportunity!

    Mackenzie's Reflections says:

    Winning an Ipad would help increase my business, b/c I could take it to photo shoots for clients to take a peek at their pictures right away. This would allow them a chance to say which they liked before I even edit! It would certainly be easier to carry around! Thanks for the opportunity MCP Actions!

    Kim-Marie says:

    I’m a graphic designer for a photo studio as well as free lance. My portfolio is kind of hefty to lug around and sometimes it’s not convenient to boot up the laptop. An iPad would let me show my clients and the studio clients my work samples in a much easier way than I currently am able.

    And iPad would be a major step ahead for me and going into business with photography. Not only could I share nice sized images right in front of potential and current clients, it can help with paperwork, organization and look pretty snazzy doing so. I’d so love an iPad as my business partner (hubby) doesn’t see the need. So I wish!

    Kelli V says:

    An iPad would be a tremendous learning tool for me! As an aspiring photographer, I am consistently looking for the most practical tools to help me learn and also to share my work. The ipad has been my ideal and I would use it for much!

    Oh having an iPad would be the coolest thing!!! I have to share our main PC with the family right now because we just can’t afford to get another one. So an iPad would allow me great freedom in internet access. Plus I love the idea of being able to preview images right after a session and/or bringing the edited images right to clients for ordering!!!

    already “Like” MCP on FB, that’s how I found out about the giveaways, thank you!!! Off to grab the banner…

    How cool would it be to win an iPad 2? Well, let me tell you…I could not only show my portfolio with it I could actually review blogs on the go, like MCP! I would always have my iPad 2 with me. I could use it to find answers to an issue I may be having with lighting before my clients show up for a shoot. It would be great to have one.

    Winning an iPad would boost my business leaps and bounds. I could use it in the field with clients to review right then and there! I would be useful in trade shows at my booth to pull new clients towards me. I would be great to just carry with me at all time and when someone says “oh you are a photographer”, I can just pull it out of my bag and say “why yes would you like to see my portfolio”. So much better than just handing them a business card 10 fold!

  453. 453

    If I won the iPad 2 it would make showing my clients their photos so much easier. The iPad is light and easy to take along on photo shoots and to meet with potential clients to show my work on at a nice viewing size and format. Whoever wins this will have gained a great asset.

    I cant count the number of ways it would change my business! The most important one for me is that I would be able to gain SOOOO much more knowledge….to be able to take all of the articles/blogs with me and read them wherever I want instead of trying to read them when I have a minute at my desktop.
    Not to mention it would immensely help keep me organized!

    Teresa F. says:

    I’m not a professional photographer, but I am passionate about it as a hobby. I spend hours sitting alone in my “home studio,” (some would call it a messy office), editing and downloading photos. Having an ipad2 would mean that I could spend that time in the same room as my family pursuing my hobby. I travel quite a bit too, because my family all live overseas. It would be wonderful to have an ipad to travel with, so that I can share photos of my children and family with my relatives overseas; in particular my elderly Aunt and Uncle who think that computers are some kind of magic – well, I guess with an ipad, they wouldn’t be far wrong!

    Oh to have the wonderful portability is the greatest thing! I live 60 miles from the nearest town and travel all over to my clients, while some travel to me. Unfortunately meeting with them to go over their portraits is sometimes a feat in itself. To be able to have somethings so light weight to travel with that does not have to be plugged in or wait on it to boot up would be like getting everything you wanted from Santa on Christmas morning!! Plus having the ability to tap into your CP at home and get files…LOVE IT!!!

    Oh how I could use this in my business! A few ways right off the bat! 1) I choose to do all my proofing sessions at my office in my home, some can’t always make it, so meething them in a public place and using the ipad to showcase the photos would be a great way to interact with these clients. 2) Being so portable taking it to coffee shop, etc would allow me to just open my photos to showcase them. I have so many mothers always wanting to see my photography but many don’t get online with busy lives or take the time to look on facebook. Having an ipad on had is like a portable portfolio of my work! 3) I would love to research photography poses, location ideas when Im out and about. In place of my mini phone screen!

    Dean says:

    While not a professional photographer, ran across your promotion while looking at a post from a friend who is: Mindy Upham. And while she definately would benefit from one, so would I. I am a Compliance manager for a trucking company, and the I-pad would help me a lot to keep organized on my personal, business, and social (ahem) life. The apps it has for task management, data processing, and internet capabilities makes it very valuable to me in my position.

    Would cut down costs of promotional and presentation materials shown to potential clients.

    I am constantly using my iPhone to network and keep track of my schedules for my sessions, and have been considering getting an iPad, so I am thrilled about this opportunity to possibly win! Having an iPad will give me the flexibility to work while I am on the run, and it would be nice to use it when I am travelling! The best will be the ability to sit at a table with clients, go over their online gallery with them, and have a big, clear picture to present to them!

    Having an ipad would be like adding some extra time to the day. I am starting nursing school soon and this would make life easier. I could use the ipad in those free moments that are currently being wasted, for example: breaks at work, waiting rooms, breaks between classes. Plus if I do find free time I could use it to learn about Photography one of my fave hobbies, which I hope some day I am good enough to make it more than a hobby!!

Pairing this baby up with amazing iPad frame from The Organic Bloom is the PERFECT way to display any photo! Love MCP actions. Thanks for hosting such a great contest! Woo hoo!

    2. It would be great to view the images at the session
    3. It would be an awesome way to show my portfolio.

    The main reason I would LOVE an iPad is to carry my porfolio around. I have and love an iPhone but the screen is too small for that purpose. There are also many other things I use my phone for that would be easier with a larger screen but the portfolio is the main one.

    Although once I have one I’ll be loading it with posing guides, and idea files, and my kid/dog bragbook. :-)

    Working in youth ministry I’m almost a fulltime photographer for youth outings, church events, and senior photos for less fortunate young people who can’t afford to pay for a professional. I don’t have any big comments of how an iPad could take my business to the next level because it’s a volunteer situation – actually often a thankless job but so worth the efforts! The iPad2 would help occupy young people stuck in the van for hours on a road trip. It would let me show them the photos I take while we travel. It would help me find the closest Taco Bell when they get hungry. I think you get the picture… = )

    I could have used it this past weekend!I was shooting a college graduation, and last year lighting was very different than this years. 800 pictures later, I find that the white balance is crazy off as my flash reflected off of the gowns (I would never have guessed that would be a problem). So, with that said, I would use it to see the pics better than what is offered through the LCD screen on the camera. The shots looked great in the cameras view finder and LCD screen, but when I got back home half of them were a lighting mess. I would use this as a tool to show clients their shots and adjust the composition or lighting with better results. I think this tool would also allow me to preview shots with the client and get better sales up front. All in all, a fantastic tool that I wish I could afford.

    I was just telling my hubs last night that an iPad would change my life. Well…it’d help it a ton! Just last week during a senior session consult, I had to borrow my husband’s work Macbook to show them some different options for location. Oh, if I only had an iPad II! Ah…. :) Thanks for such a fantastic giveaway!

    A great tool that would allow me to see what I’m doing BEFORE I get home (that darned window is too small on my camera back!), also, as I’m venturing into some PS designing, I’ve been surfing alot and looking at online ads (you know, what I like, what I don’t – it really gets the creative juices flowing!) – this could be done one the run! Or in my case, on the ‘wait’ as I’m waiting for my kids!

    Will Howard says:

    I can see the biggest asset to using an iPad (which by the way, I would greatly appreciate), would be to show clients their photos, or to show potential clients my ideas, or portfolio.

    Photoshop CS5 and iPad can also link together now, so that would be another great asset to what I do.

    Donna Miller says:

    This ipad would be a dream come true! Volunteering photography at local animal shelters for pets, I participate in 15 to 20 events every year where I display my work in a 10×10 tent. Would love to show people who come to these events photos of pets that need loving homes at these rescues. A majority of my display are rescued pets & to show them current pets for adoption on an ipad would be awesome! (And hopefully find them homes). Using the ipad in everyday business would help free up so much of my time in presenting to clients their options. What a great giveaway!

    Also liked Designs by Aime on FB, great designs!

    I already am friends with MCP and just became friends and “liked” Designs by Amie. How would an Ipad help me? Let me tell you…it would be so awesome to bring my finished work to a clients house and show them along with make suggestions on how and where to hang their prints. Thanks for the chance!

    This is just an image that I took recently that I really liked…gotta love the sun flare in pictures.

  573. 573

    An IPad would help me in all aspects of my work – become more organized, to be able to use with proofs, to share my portfolio, keep note, you name it! Thanks for the chance! :)

    I am not a professional photographer, but where I could use this iPad is within my duties as a high school teacher. One of my subjects is yearbook, and that class is crazy to try and organize. If I had an iPad, I am convinced that I could accomplish more and be more organized in terms of directing the staff.

    Sharon says:

    Since I don’t have a laptop this would allow me to have a ‘walking’ portfolio.

  584. 584

    I have made an investment in camera, lenses, home monitor, and software (including many MCP Actions). However, I do not have a portable way to show my work. I have been asked to be the photographer for my 3 daughters’’ swim team. Water and swimming photography is striking in the first place, but I would love to able to display the images on the latest technology and bring a smile to the swimmers I shoot. The iPad would be an ideal format.
    I would like for the iPad to help me make some money from what has become a very expensive hobby, because I would never charge the team members for prints. I would like see seek other avenues of revenue.

  585. 585
    Laura says:

    An iPad would be so awesome and useful in showing previews of photographs to clients! It would be a great marketing tool because you could have it on hand as a beautiful instant “portfolio” to show people at a moment’s notice.

    The Ipad would change my business tremendously! I’ve only done a few weddings and business is starting to pick up. I don’t do in person ordering, I don’t have a digital gallery of images to show at client meetings, I don’t do digital contracts, I don’t have slideshows at the receptions, I don’t do a lot of similar things. If I had an iPad, I totally would do all of those things to boost my business to the next level!

    Sandi Hansen says:

    I am new to the business… so it would help me grow by using the IPAD to show others my photo’s!
    I could run a slide show of the photo’s I have taken, I can do this any place because the IPAD can fit
    into my bag. When I am done showing someone I can email them my business card, right from the pad! Thanks for giving one of these away!!

    Not a pro, but oh could I use an iPad… For the e-books for sure. For the entertainment factor for my children (oh fine, and ME). For the FUN. For the fact that then I would have something of a computer when I travel!

  669. 669

    I just got a card swiper that can be used with the ipad2 for my photography business but don’t have the money for the ipad2 yet. Once I get the ipad2, I will be able to not only have clients pay with check or cash, but with a card, which will make it much easier for them to pay. I can have my clients just swipe their cards right there at the photoshoot. I can hardly wait to be able to make payments so much more flexible for them!

    The ipad2 will also give me the chance to evaluate and compare my photos when I’m really anywhere. It will be a necessary tool for my business and I am looking forward to hopefully soon having one!

    Kate Burton says:

    An ipad would help save my marriage – seriously! At the moment my husband, who’s a member of the Australian parliament, uses my computer whenever he needs to check the news (frequently). With an ipad, he could check the news on that and I could have my computer back to keep editing photos! Of course, I would probably be able to sneak out of the house with the ipad every now and then, use it download photos from my camera, check the latest from MCP and Designs by Amie on FB, and more! :)

  673. 673
    Mary H. says:

    If I won this, I would give it to my husband for his photography business so he could carry his portfolio with him all the time. Plus, he could keep track of appointments, model releases, etc. Thanks so much for the chance!

    3)Photo apps!
    4)I could read it more easily than my iPhone! :)
    5)Work on-the-go with kids-in-tow!

My son has a learning disability that affects the way his vision and his brain work together. There are so many amazing aps that would benefit him both in school and at home. It would decrease his anxieties and improve his reading and writing skills, thus making school so much easier and more enjoyable for him. I understand why you would want to share this iPad with someone doing photography as this is a blog directed for that. You asked how this would affect my personal life and this is it. My son is my life. If he’s better, then I’m better.

    Mindy Smith says:

    I could use this as a tool to help clients decide on prints since I like to travel to them. I can also show clients examples of poses. I have been saving up for one just because I wanted to use it for billing and invoices on the go for my awesome clients!

    Having an Ipad would be wonderful! I’ve never had any sort of laptop just my desktop. I teach classes and go on site, a lot. Lugging around my huge desktop is not fun or convenient, bring on the ipad!

    Debbie Gibb says:

    WOW! What a great giveaway! This would allow me to have everything at my fingertips with the “On the Go Life” I lead. I can imagine housing this right in my purse. How convenient. Lugging my imac around is great, but it is bulky.

    Besides, would this not step up any photographers professionalism. Who wouldn’t want one?

    Thank you!

    I really NEED to win an ipad so I can do in person proofing :-) please oh please!!

  694. 694
    Melissa says:

    Wow, great giveaway!

    Having an ipad would make it easier to share pictures of my kids with family and friends in person, rather than telling them how to access my Flickr photos (which instructions they usually forget by the time they get home, heh).

    “Like” both pages on FB!

    Lori says:

    I am just getting started in the business and what an amazing tool to be able to have an up to date portfolio right there to show clients. I think it could definitely grow my business and make me really proud of how far I have come. I have a 2 year old and my husband is a state patrolman and he works all the time. I keep giving discounts to friends having hard times and done free session for 3 friends this month b/c of medical expenses or lost jobs. I really think that this would make me be able to say.. I am good enough to charge the prices I charge and people would possible take me more seriously.
    I hope that the person that wins this, would be very blessed!

    Holly Sisson says:

    Oh, so many ways! Could show clients larger examples of my portfolio when on the go (right now I show them on my iPhone, so small!). I also do a lot of iPhoneography art (see attached), and have earned some money from it, iPad would help that work as well as, again, it is hard to see on the iPhone, it is so small (and I’m a purist, and only shoot/process iPhoneography on my iPhone, no PhotoShop work).

    Debbie says:

    Oh gosh I would love to win the ipad. I don’t have a laptop to show my clients my work because that is what they are always asking me. I could go to them to show the photos and make orders for those that can’t come to me. Sometimes I get stumped on poses and if I had the ipad I could refer to it. I have bought MCPactions and they are my favorite!!!! Thanks!!

    Well I currently have an iPad, and I know how it changes your business. You can show slideshows, take credit card payments, draw up contracts, and it is all so lightweight. Imagine this – being able to show your portfolio, draw up a contract, take the payment and send a receipt all from the same machine. IT IS FANTASTIC!! I would love to add the capability of Skyping with potential clients with the new camera of the iPad2. Crossing my fingers for good luck :)

    Having an Ipad 2 would be such an amazing tool! I teach photography to high schoolers in a public school here in Miami. I always am taking my equipment so they can learn hands on but its really hard showing the examples I am shooting to 43 students without a computer. It would also make shooting for clients a breeze when they can see exactly what I shot the moment the shutter clicks.

    Sue McFarland says:

    I would LOVE the ipad….as a new business, it would enhance my being able to show the clients my most recent work or my portfolio while we are meeting, especially if we are meeting on location.

    I”m a photography enthusiast with the hopes of eventually making a career out of it once I retire from my current occupation. I am learning everything about photography/photoshop through blogs, books and experimentation with the gear I have or borrow.

    Carla Steinbring says:

    I already liked you and am now on my way to like Amie. As a teacher for students who are blind or visually impaired, an Ipad would be such a blessing to have when working with my low vision students in addition to my low functioning students.

    An iPad would change my photography business because it would allow me to present my portfolio to clients in a beautiful, professional, impressive manner. I also believe that by allowing my clients to physically hold their slideshow in their own hands accounts for major cool points! I also would like to use it to start doing in-person ordering sessions to become more profitable.

    Thanks so much for the opportunity! Keeping these fingers crossed :)

    so, how would an ipad2 help? uh, galleries, proofs, posing ideas and examples, it can fit practically anywhere…
    seriously endless possibilities! ;)

  827. 827

    I really really could use this!!!! I’m a photographer, and I have yet to buy sample wedding albums/portraits albums to show my work in personal meetings with my clients. Buying those sample portfolio albums are just too expensive for me to afford right now…BUT if I had the ipad2 I can show a gorgeous display of my pictures on it!! I would love it! My clients would love it! Please..pretty please with sugar and cherries on top, I want to win! Thank you for giving it away! I’ve already liked on facebook :)
    Blessings,
    Kimberly

    Like so many of you I would love to have an iPad2 to bring my business to the next level. I would use it to view photos with my clients at sessions.

  831. 831

    I’m already a fan of both sites and would LOVE to win an Ipad 2 so I can do in person ordering sessions at client’s home as well as in my office!

    Katherine Willis says:

    Having an iPad2 would greatly impact my ability to move forward with my photography. Being able to view photos so portably and easily on the iPad would make meetings with potential clients much better. Potential clients would be able to easily and quickly view my previous work in excellent detail and definition. They’d love the ease of viewing photos with it and so would I!

    It would be amazing to use as a digital portfolio for clients and potential clients. Plus, I would be able to use it for ordering in person!

    Kim Jones says:

    I think the iPAD 2 would benefit my business by allowing me to show my clients previews on location. I could also use it for signing contracts, running credit cards thru with an APP and using it to show examples. It would be AWESOME!

    I already like you on facebook and will promote your give away!

    Trina Baker says:

    I use my iphone to run some of my photo business so I can’t even imagine all the cool things I could do with an iPad. I know there are many business apps that run only on the iPad and would love to try them out. Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  838. 838

    I would use the iPad as a portable portfolio when visiting magazines and agencies. I would also use it as a tethered viewer for clients while shooting food in the studio.

    I’ve liked you on FB for a while now… can I say “I like you more?!”

    I’m not a professional photographer, nonetheless, as a teacher, an iPad2 would simplify how I assist my students in small groups. The fact that it’s light weight, fantastic at catching students’ attention, fun packed with educational applications… goes without saying… the impact would be limitless in my classroom.

    Gwen Meehan says:

    I love doing in person ordering, but it’s a challenge to schedule with my four kids (and a messy house) in addition to whatever the client has going on in her life. If I had an iPad2, I’d be able to do the in person proofing ANYWHERE … and that would make my business so much easier!

    My business would be boosted tremendously by winning an ipad. As it is, fb is a dear social networking friend. I connect with clients, find old friends who become new clients, and I’m able to display pictures to friends and clients who are interested in my growing work. I wish I’d have the finances to invest in my own, but that just wouldn’t be possible anytime soon. I’ve just officially started my business over the past 2 years after a devastating layoff. Photography has been my second wind, my fresh start, and the thing that makes me want to go to work in the morning. Anything that could help me help that grow would be such a huge blessing! Thank you so much for the opportunity!

  864. 864

    The iPad is ideal for photographers. It will make it easier to make sales outside of the studio. Since I don’t have an iPhone, this would allow me to run charge cards on location and also pull up and share my website. The possibilities are endless.

    Thank you so much for sharing your tips and actions.

    Mary says:

    I am not a professional photographer, but I enjoy photography. Since I’m the working mom and my husband is the stay-at-home dad, I don’t have the time, money, or tools to really take my photography to the next level. However, I am inspired by two of my friends who have either started their own photography businesses or are just starting out. Someday, I hope to do the same. In the meantime, an iPad2 will allow me to learn and keep up with the latest techniques. If I ever start my own business, I like the idea of being able to show pictures off-site and do orders at the same time. It would be a great tool for organizing appointments and keeping notes about clients (likes, dislikes, etc).

    An Ipad2 would definitely change my photography business. I currently use a PC, but editing would be much easier for me on an Ipad2. I’ve only just begun my business, and have only done photoshoots for free so far. An Ipad 2 would help me truly advance to the next level!

    Tiffany W says:

    This really would update my buisness in SO many ways. I would love to be able to show clients in person proofing, online galleries so I could place orders *while* I am sitting there with them. Then review their order and they can confirm its correct. I know sales tend to increase when you sit them down go through it and lock them in immediatly as well. I desperatly need to increase sales so this would really take my buisness to the next level.

    I also never thought of an app for posing ideas, I LOVE that, and that would be so awesome, becuase I do think we get stuck in our ruts sometimes!

  881. 881
    Mark Dhooge says:

    The Ipad2 is a photographer’s dream – We could use the technology to show our recent work, layout gallery wrap arrangements, and skype with prospective destination clients who do not live in South Florida but who are making arrangments to have their wedding on our beautiful beaches under our fabulous sun!

    I have drooled over them forever now but with 4 kids and a budding business, I have no extra cash for one.. :(

    I would love to have this iPad, to take with me when meeting with brides and grooms, for them to decide if they would like to use me as there photographer, and I could use it as a digital portfolio. I think it would be an amazing tool for my business, and I though about buying one earlier today, but after seeing the realized that wasn’t possible at this point. I think it’s ironic I seen post on your facebook after thinking about buying one today! I hope I win it, would be a dream come true.

    Wendy Jukich says:

    I have heard that the photo quality on the ipad is one of the best ever for displaying photos. It would be a great asset to show clients as you go (glimpses of what they will see more of later) and a great way to bring the photos to life with your client when ready to show your finished work.

    An iPad 2 would make my “mothering” life so much more productive: calendar, recipes, homework helper, reader, all in one. What a great give-away!

  901. 901

    having an iPad 2 will change my photography business to an even more positive viewing experience for my customers and for myself. I would love to be able to use this when taking photos of the babies in the hospital/NICU. I would be able to just upload the proofs and show the parents right on the spot without having to lug cords and the touch screen features would just bring me out of the computer darkage. This would be an amazing tool to add to my growing business.

    April says:

    I’m an amateur trying to get things going, an iPad would be great for mini-sessions I think (although I have no idea if you can run Lightroom/PS on an iPad!). If not it would be a great way to show my portfolio when trying to get my work out there.

    rebecca says:

    I’ve been hoping for an iPad for a while – it would be the perfect tool for showcasing my portfolio efficiently and on the go.

Was already a fan of MCP and am now a fan of Amie.

    I would LOVE an iPad is to carry my photos around. i take tons of pictures of my kids but takes a long time to post on my blog. with an ipad, i can upload ALL my photos and look at them whenever i want to. the mobility is a great reason why i want the ipad.

    I’ve also been signing up for so many online courses and i’d really want to keep my pdf documents from these courses in one place and the ipad is a great size to read these documents from.

    I have an iPad on loan from my husband’s school and will be completely lost without when he turns it back in. I designed a photo book for a client recently and it was so nice showing her the book on our flat screen while we sat on the sofa with the iPad to go through her session’s proofs if she wanted to replace any images in the book. The iPad’s screen is really amazing and is perfect for in person proofing. It would be wonderful to win one, because I will definitely be lost next week without this loaner. I’m off to check out Designs by Aimee on fb! Thanks for the opportunity!
