    Ohhhh…. I so need an ipad 2. The first reason the ipad would make my professional life easier would be in my meetings with my clients. I could showcase my portfolio in a cool compact presentation instead of using my clunky tired MacBook. The second and most important reason I would love to have an ipad 2 is for my communication with my clients via on the go. In our immediate world my clients e-mail me daily with questions,I have multiply inquiries everyday and it is hard to answer them fast enough. It would be so nice to work while sitting in gymnastics with the kids,while driving with my team to and from our weddings. My brides come in with their ipads and send me notes from their ipads. It will be so nice to be as current and hip as my savvy clients.
    I always look forward to your tips and have learned a great deal about shooting our products,thank you for giving your time and talents to all of us. -sherri meyers/the pastry studio

    Owning an Ipad would be such a Godsend for me. I am literally the most left-brained person I know. I am all creativity and no business sense. I am sunshine and rainbows and absolutely the least organized person I know. I believe an Ipad would help me to get organized, and in turn, help me create the business I have pictured in my mind and heart and turn it into a reality. Thank you SO much for the opportunity!!!

    • Chi Pelo says:

      Okay, I meant to type RIGHT brained person. See – I’m so right-brained that I can’t even THINK of which side of the brain is creative and which side is used for business and organization. SEE how much help I need! LOL

    Gautam Dogra says:

    Having an ipad will help me display my pictures from flickr to the people. With the beautiful vibrant display, it would be a treat to anyone.
    Also, i can have image editors to tweek the images on the go and possibly upload them.

  5. 4905

    Winning an ipad would be a great benefit to me and my business! I was just saying how amazing it would be to have an ipad to keep track of invoices and dates and deadlines! It would be an honor to win one:)

    I have been feeling that an iPad 2 would be such a great asset to my client meetings. It would be wonderful to be able to pull my portfolio out of my purse and have it right at my fingertips. :)

    Winning an iPad would mean that I would never have to put proofs online again. In person proofing sessions ONLY. YAY! If they want the image they’d have to BUY IT from me.

    liz deremer says:

    I would love the ipad for showing proofs to my clients for placing orders. I’ve run into a few frustrating issues lately where my clients have downloaded and stolen images from their albums posted online :( I’d love to start doing this one on one and the ipad would be perfect for that!

  15. 4915
    Amy says:

    You find clients everywhere & having my work in my purse, in full digital color would help me fill in the gaps in my business – some time ago I had to let my website go & any advertising I had done in the past (due to a change in family dynamic)- the ipad 2 would help me share my work on the go!

  16. 4916

    I think that anyone who uses digital images today needs an ipad… this is why I need one! I would love to be able to have a portfolio available to show of the different things I can do with not only my camera, but different actions.

    Alissa says:

    I am a teacher by day and a photographer by night/weekend. An iPad would benefit both. An iPad would open up a whole new world for my students, especially in reading. It would also allow me to carry my portfolio, shot lists and other important files with me. And of course, it would just be fun to have :)

    Caitlin McCullough says:

    As a professional photographer, the chance to have my portfolio as portable and visible as an iPad2 would allow it to be is irrefutably priceless. An iPad would allow me to produce my portfolio, in stunning quality, anywhere. I would not need access to the internet, nor would the images be minuscule as they currently are on my iPod Classic. Consideration for this boon would be highly appreciated.

    Barb Betts says:

    An iPad would be amazing for me to have my complete portfolio where ever I go. I do craft shows and it would be amazing to have with me. Thanks for the opportunity to win. Blessings, Barb

    Just tweeted!!!

    Winning the iPad would be such a blessing. Lost my full time job, so I’m trying to grow my photography business and this is a luxury tool that I simply cannot afford. An iPad would help me stand out from the crowd and give me a competitive edge to acquire new clients. I would be most grateful if I were to win.

    I’m at a very difficult crossroads, as many people are these days. Recently lost my job and I’m trying to make a go at it with my photography. Winning an iPad would be such a wonderful gift that would help me look more professional and together. I would be so ever grateful to win and everyone would know where I won it from! Thank you for the opportunity.

    Just posted to my photography page on Facebook.

    Winning an iPad would help me showcase my portfolio and website to potential clients and make a memorable impression. My full-time job was recently eliminated and I’ve been doing photography as a side job, so I’ve decided I want to try and make a living with my photography business. Because of my situation, I am unable to afford the luxury of purchasing an iPad, but see the unlimited potential in using one to grow my business. Thank you for the opportunity to win such a useful and wonderful tool that could strengthen my ability to succeed a photography full time.

    Just ‘liked’ Amie’s page. Great work!!!

    Winning an iPad would help me showcase my portfolio and website to potential clients and make a memorable impression. My full-time job was recently eliminated as so many others in our country. I’ve been doing photography as a side job to make ends meet, and I’ve decided to try and make a living with my photography business since it is my passion. I enjoy capturing memories in an artistic and creative style for others to cherish for a lifetime. Because of my situation, I am unable to afford the luxury of purchasing an iPad, but see the unlimited potential in using one to grow my business. Thank you for the opportunity to win such a useful and wonderful tool that could strengthen my ability to succeed a photography full time.

    Amy Burns says:

    An IPad would be fabulous for me. For years I have wanted to start up a photography business on the side. I am a counselor in a school and wanted to have a side job of on location photographer in the spring, summer and fall. Our computer at home is not very fast and we have to restart quite a bit so it wouldn’t be good for using. My work computer we are not able to download or put anything on it that is not work related. This has been a major reason why I haven’t started yet on top of the fact that my boys were little. They are still young 3 and 5, but at the age that I feel that I can do some extra things. Of course, they are my pride and enjoy and my favorite subjects for pictures.

    Robyn says:

    Winning an ipad would be so fantastic. I have 2 daughters in the house and they are both on the computers so I never seem to get one anymore. So this would be all mine :)

    I am not a pro, but I would love an iPad2 to edit photos of my kids, read books, listen to music And most importantantly my hubby can get his laptop back.

    Derek Hawkley says:

    Winning the iPad 2 would be an amazing addition to the tools I already have. The stunning display is amazing for showing customers their pictures and also for displaying our portfolio to potential clients. The chance to have your portfolio on hand is a great tool for any photographer.

    I have “liked” both sites on Facebook. I would love an ipad2. I am 33 and just finished my BA in Business. I have been doing photography for the past 10 years and love this freelance photography hobby. I have done several weddings as well as other photo shoots. I would love the freedom and display capabilities of the ipad2.

  41. 4941

    Winning an Ipad 2. Would make give, as an aspiring amateur photographer, that would love to set foot into the business, that extra notch of confidence to approach clients with my portfolio with that extra bit of style! Also, in my personal life, it would help me, via skype/facetime, keep in touch with my family that live hundreds of klm away! Anytime and anyplace! Please be me :)

    John Quadros says:

    This is going to sound like a hard luck story. I don’t want it to be taken that way. I have ALS. So with that said I’ve lost my speech and the use of my legs. Thank God there are a lot of handicapped accessable trails here in CA. I mostly do retouch work (with the help of MCP Actions of coarse),DVD slideshows w/music. It sure would be nice to be able to show my work and my business off on an iPad2 instead of trying to setup a display on a five year old laptop. Well that’s my story. Good luck to everyone,
    John Quadros

    I liked Amie’s page (already like yours)

  44. 4944

    An iPad2 would be awesome as a portable gallery, for skyping with clients and for showing video slideshows.

    Holly Williams says:

    I’m a college student who hates carrying real books! Having an Ipad would eliminate a lot of that problem. Plus I’d have a way to showcase my photos and show off my kids!!!

    This may sound like a cliché but I would actually give it to my boyfriend. He wants one so bad. If I had the money I’d buy him one…

    Ipad2 amazing, I could list for hours the things I love about it. But mostly it is amazing how bright and beautiful a good photo looks on it. It would be an amazing addition to my camera bag!

    Samantha says:

    Having the ability to instantly preview my SOOCs, pull up ROES and talk about package pricing, pop off a quick edit or two (using my MCP actions, of course :D) would completely revolutionize the face of business as I’m doing it today. Sometimes all a photographer needs in this business is one tiny miracle to get out of the “friends and family and a very few assorted others” to “big timing photographer”, which is – coincidentally – where I want to be.

    API Photography as a household name? Yes please!

    Would love to win an IPad 2! The possiblities and opportunities are endless!!!

  56. 4956

    I have been wanting an ipad for so long. I’m a budding photographer and like taking my gear everywhere. Having an ipad would make it easier to share images and albums with my wonderful clients. With an on-the-go lifestyle, staying on top of blogging, other social networks, and sharing can be quite the task. An ipad would definitely help me out and would probably become my new best friend. Please choose me for the ipad giveaway … I would be so very grateful!

    Orla Chavez says:

    I could just dream of bringing an ipad to a client viewing, to showcase my work, and make me look like I am actually getting somewhere after all the work I am putting into starting my own business, with no funds!
    I would just LOVE an ipad!!!

    i would love an ipad! Not only would it streamline my on the go work, but help out in so many other ways, keeping me in close contact with my clients.

    KatieLovesWags says:

    I would love this iPad! For personal use it would be amaing to tote around something to really show off photos of my new bubba

  60. 4960

    I am a real estate photographer and looking for a way to decrease photo production time and the research all points to iPad2…to be able to do quick edits in the field and upload the photos directly to MLS without having to return to the office…what a time saver and a boost for my professional image.

  61. 4961
    sarah marie says:

    It would really help with showcasing to build my business! I could keep it tucked away in my bag ready to flip out at a moments notice!

  62. 4962

    Having an iPad 2 would transform my business in many ways. I am a pastor as well as a medi entrepreneur. This tool would allow me to essentially run both at the same time. I could prepare messages keep up with ministry teams and at the same show media proofs to clients and collaborate with other members of my media team. This would be a spectacular asset to increase the effectiveness of both areas of my professional life!

  63. 4963

    Having an iPad 2 would help me by:
    Allowing me to share my portfolio to clients onsite.
    Possibly doing minor editing and crops with photoshop express or something of the sort.
    Researching tips/tips/and education while out and about.
    Checking email while out and about.

    ….and just being a tech nerd and smiling because I have a new “gadget”.

    An iPad could help me with my ability to blog and upload real-time photos to my site!
    I’d also like one to use to take photos of my baby boy, who is only 5 months old! :)

    Judee says:

    An iPad 2 will make my life easier in many ways: lighter weight and more portable than a laptop and checking in online when traveling, using for recipes in the kitchen, and videocalling just to name a few.

    will use ipad2 to make imovies for my kids and use it as a music sheet or lyric sheet during sunday service.

  69. 4969

    I love location photography and an Ipad would help meet my customers desire to see their images right away. I also think it would help so much to force me to get a better workflow going.

    Chalyn Coleman says:

    Having an Ipad would allow me to give my fiance a great birthday present. All he wants is an Ipad and he deserves it.

    Carmelita May says:

    An Ipad would be a joy to have. It would make showing my photographs much more convenient. I create slideshows for church events with my photographs and storing the photographs on the Ipad to quickly show event coordinators would make my life easier. Currently I carry my laptop around. With the Ipad I could edit and process my photographs at home and show them on the Ipad when I am out.

    ipad2 would make it so much easier for me – contracts on the spot, payments on the spot! and it’s a portfolio on the go!

    Debra Fraley says:

    An iPad would be fabulous in my business as I would be able to show images at client meetings. I would be able to show examples of our work to potential clients immediately instead of just giving them a card with our url and telling them to check it out for themselves.
    In m y personal life, I would be able to spend more time with my family as the only computer we have right now is a desktop and it is in a separate room from the living room. I could upload books to read to my 2 year old son and games that will help him learn and grow. I think an iPad 2 would be fantabulous! Thank you for the giveaway!

    I have recently started a new business venture with my photographer friend where we are offering a different kind of photo session. We basically spend the day with you and document your daily lives, with photos and video. the images and video are made into a slideshow/video. right now we are just sending them to a link to vimeo to see their video but it would be awesome to show them the full res hd video on a new ipad!! Fingers crossed!

    Afton says:

    Winning the Ipad 2 would mean so much to me! Even if I dont win the Ipad Id deffinetly look into it for the future when I could afford another large purchase. Square is really what I need to help start up my business.

    Emma Holton says:

    I have struggled and fought to get where I am now. Photography to me is like a drug. I am absolutely hooked. My camera had suffered a massive malfunction (hence, broken focus) and for 3 years i lived a stagnant and dull life. Recently, I managed to repair the body of my Nikon. I did it on my own, and once I had, it was like I was hit by lightning. I began taking some of my best work. I have grown, evolved. My skills have grown, evolved, and I am ready to begin my life as a professional.

    An iPad would streamline my work, it would help me get my products to my clients faster by proofing them directly after a shoot rather than lugging my giant laptop all over the place. I could have my invoices, contracts, pricing, product lists — everything in one place. I’m desperate for a break. I truly hope I am selected as this will be a great start into such a fine business and artistry.

    Renee says:

    I need an iiPad for school! I’ve been asking for one for a long time, also I want to be a photographer when I older so taking pics.

  84. 4984

    This will be a vital piece of equipment. It will help display mu photos. Have my price lists. etc.
