Will Crockett aka "Coach Will" is the global voice of the benefits of hybrid photography. Let us show how to shoot "hybrid" and create profitable Talking Portraits.

It all starts with "Hybrid".

hybrid photography = photo+video+audio+data

In order to shoot Talking Portraits, you need to become a hybrid photographer.  Our founder, Will Crockett is one of the absolute best photo trainers and educators of our time and is the global expert on hybrid photography.  PortraitLink helps you learn hybrid, then processes your hybrid files into Talking Portraits that you sell.  A hybrid photographer is nothing more than a professional photographer that is is skilled at:

  • Lighting using continuous light {LED or color correct Fluorescent},
  • Shooting still photos using jpeg formats, 
  • Shooting talking photos using video formats,
  • Recording clean audio of the subjects speaking, laughing, singing...
  • File management to create, label and move the photo and video and data files into one folder then upload that folder to PortraitLink to automatically edit those together for you. 

Think of PortraitLink as your hybrid lab?  You upload your photo, video, and data files to us {those are called source files BTW} and we process them for a small fee and place them onto a delivery platform for you.  Then, we send you a link.  That's all. No downloading of files, no apps needed, just a link that you can click on and it plays.

PortraitLink is your learning center as well as your hybrid lab.  We have started up our lab by processing the hybrid source files for a group of 12 professional photographers across the US that shoot our Talking Church Directory eProduct.  Right now, we are perfecting our training system and focussing on how to make these first 12 hybrid photographers as successful as they want to be.  Later as we grow, we will be adding new training modules for more photographers to join us.  We have a wide variety of PortraitLink eProducts like the Talking Business Card, the cool DayCare PortraitLink and more.  See our samples page for a quick look.
