About

PANELS are an extension tool for SHOTBOX, a Personal Portable Photo Light Studio. PANELS set the stage for your creativity. Pick and choose background and floor sheets that take your photos to brand new levels of expression and showmanship. Take better product shots if you're an online seller. Enhance your blog. Capture collectibles like never before. Make your hobbies shine and impress. Share your family heirlooms in new and profound ways. SHOTBOX and PANELS should be in every home, office and classroom.

INTRODUCTION

My name is Aaron Johnson. I'm a co-inventor of the original Cricut Electronic Cutter and have been innovating and inventing for over 25 years now. SHOTBOX is my endeavor to change the way we do small-scale photography as well as open up new photographic areas to explore. These include using our smartphones to replace and mobilize scanning.

Last summer we raised over $110,000 with our original SHOTBOX campaign, a critical milestone to launching our company. If you're not familiar with SHOTBOX, watch this 70-second video for a demonstration and opportunity to come on board with the full product.

Whether you're an online seller, family historian, blogger, crafter, collector, business owner, hobbyist, student, teacher or parent, SHOTBOX PANELS make your photographs look good, and you'll have a ton of fun along the way.

Simply insert the PANEL Base into your SHOTBOX and lift the back PANEL into place. Now choose your desired custom-sized Prints to build your scene. The base PANELS are magnetic so you can easily keep the back Print in place with the included magnets. Once the prints are in place, you're ready to stage with objects and props. This is where it gets fun. Let your imagination run wild! Impress your clients, customers and friends with your unique creativity.

You can use any camera you own, and the SHOTBOX is particularly optimized for iPhones, Androids and other smart devices. 

PANELS represent a wonderful way to creatively stage photography of all types. They're not just for professionals, they are for anyone taking pictures. With perfect lighting and expressive backgrounds you can "imaginate" scenes that pop and wow. 

Prints are custom-sized and we'll include 8 select images in the Essential Kit.

BENEFITS 

For sellers your PANEL shots will help sell more product. For marketers you'll be able to design better sales imagery. For restaurant owners you'll be able to present your menu with much more appeal. For collectors and hobbyists you can display your items beautifully, and for DIY and crafters you can showcase your creations in even more creative ways. PANELS are perfect for parents and kids doing school assignments or creative projects. They are simple to set up and quick to put away until the next time you need them.

 WHY WE NEED THE FUNDS

With your support we will raise the funds necessary to build the tools and setup components for PANELS as well as get to a critical mass of initial orders for the Background Prints themselves. We've hit some great strides over the last 12 months with the core SHOTBOX and we will continue to grow and stabilize with your pledge. Your assistance is key and GREATLY appreciated. Thank you!

Over the last year we've been excited and blessed to see so many people benefit from using their SHOTBOXes. We've seen everything from videos of champion Rubik's "Cubers" timing their skills to mouth-watering menu shots of lava cakes. Using a SHOTBOX is just simply fun and fulfilling. They help special needs kids be creative and expressive. They help family historians finally preserve priceless journals, photos and memories that just couldn't get scanned before. And they have made many a blogger shine. It's great to be a part of something that has stirred up so many creative uses.

Risks and challenges

As an enhancement of the original SHOTBOX, I'll be honest and say there's not much risk of this failing. We're already up and running and rocking the early stages of a great company. However, we're still young and hungry and need all the help we can get and this campaign will help tremendously. 

Thank you so much for your interest and assistance. Please help us get the word out by sharing liberally on your social and business platforms.
