Hey guys, Mandy here. I'm a current Dallas medical resident, former Canadian pink Power Ranger (the pink "Monster Warrior" to be exact), and the absolute last person you'd expect to create a product like Medium Boards! Prior to Medium, I had zero photography experience and even less social media prowess. I was just a big nerd who traded her "Monster Warriors" spandex for scrubs and had never been on Instagram.
I stumbled on the idea for Medium in early 2017 while trying to photograph a totally different (and pretty much non-functional) product I invented with some business-savvy friends. Thanks to dim kitchen lighting and no room in our startup budget for a professional lighting setup, my photographs looked terrible.
I needed a lightweight, rigid backdrop I could use outside or next to a window. Amazon didn't carry anything like that, so I got an idea. I scrapped the other product and dove head first into development of Medium Boards and learning my way around Instagram. Since launching in October 2017, we've gotten on Amazon, started shipping internationally, and are developing exclusive accessories and clothing. Still, the most important thing to me is connecting with you on Instagram and dishing up daily Instagram tips to share everything I've learned about photography, business, and life balance. Because taking perfect product photos and being a boss babe shouldn't be hard.
Definitely reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to hear more, collaborate, or feature Medium in your publication.
All my love,
