The Portable Photo Studio and Digital Marketing Initiative

Our Iowa SBDC Mobile team is bringing portable photo studios to 942 communities over 4 months in 2021 to offer more resources to small businesses!

How Do I Use the Portable Photo Studio?

A photo box functions as a full photo studio in a portable box! All you need to start taking professional-quality product photos is a flat surface, an outlet, and a camera.

View our instructional guide or watch our tutorial video to learn how to use the boxes.

What Is Shop Iowa?

Shop Iowa is a statewide online marketplace where small businesses can sell their products and was the inspiration for our photo box initiative.

Our photo boxes are the perfect tool for making your online product listings look stellar!

Currently, Shop Iowa has listings from small businesses in 91 counties in Iowa, but we’re hoping to get that number up to all 99!
