Save Your Photos Month 2020 is a public service outreach campaign developed by The Photo Managers to teach consumers how to preserve life’s irreplaceable photos, videos, and documents, in case of an unforeseen accident or disaster. Throughout the month, The Photo Managers will present a robust agenda of classes created and presented by independent professionals and fellow members of their educational community.
Save Your Photos Month is an annual campaign open to anyone interested in help managing their photos, in any format. Modern technology has turned our phones into cameras, ready to snap a photo or video at any moment, but this quick and prolific content creation can also be a burden, creating more than we can adequately manage with the risk of losing precious memories in the process. This year we Save Your Photos Month will present more than 40 short classes developed by photo Pros, covering topics such as “iPhone Photography Tips and Tricks”, “Cherishing Your Child’s Memories”, and “Tackle Your Family History”.
These fun and engaging classes are a great way to focus on simpler times and happier memories during this challenging season. Even as a Photo Manager, I’m always amazed at the catharsis my clients experience in working with family photos, especially now in having to distance from family and friends, it’s a great time to revisit wonderful memories while gathering, organizing, safely storing, and showcasing them in new and interesting ways. It’s a form of therapy we can all engage in right now.
Burnham Creative Group Business and The Photo Managers invite anyone interested in saving your photos to join us online at www.thephotomanagers.com.
