Photographers, like many other artists, often prefer to focus on the creative part of their craft. However, they are also small business owners who need to tend to the details of running a business if they are going to be successful.
A company like ShootQ can step in, providing a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) application that automates the details a photographer needs to run a business. But ShootQ understands that its strength is not necessarily in running IT infrastructure. Therefore, the founders teamed up with Joyent to empower ShootQ to deliver its application from the cloud.
