Professional event photography is a great way to remind guests of the great time they had at your event, as well as to showcase your event to the world and build excitement about your brand. And what better way to support your favorite nonprofit than to sponsor professional photography services to create premium quality images to help them recruit, raise funds, and just build general awareness about the cause? Whether you just want to preserve memories of the good times had by all in attendance, or you're looking to create images to incorporate into the overall marketing strategy for your organization, nothing works like professional event photography.

Lifestyle Photography / Family Photojournalism

For those looking for a more personalized photography experience, I provide those services, as well. Lifestyle photography is about capturing the art in your ordinary activities. Unlike traditional portraiture, lifestyle photography is completely candid and unstaged. It’s about capturing you being yourself and doing things you normally do. This style of photography is great for capturing fun times shared with family and friends where everyone is relaxed and just being themselves. 

If you're overdue for family photos and just don't have time to schedule it, click here to see how you can get spectacular family photos without having to adjust your schedule or make time for a session.

Personal Branding

Your headshot is either making you look professional or it's making you look unprofessional. If you're serious about your personal brand and your online presentation, it's not enough to use any random photo with you in it as your profile picture. And personal branding these days is about much more than having a great headshot. Video content now accounts for 80% of Internet traffic and is projected to continue to grow. People are more likely to watch a video, they retain more of the information, and they're more likely to take action on what they saw. So if you have a message you want to get out, video is the most effective way to do it.

Recording your elevator pitch to add to your website, your LinkedIn profile, your email signature, etc. is just on example of how you can leverage video to promote your personal brand and really set yourself apart from your competition. Click here for more info on how I can help.

Marketing Videos

Marketing these days is about getting inside people's smartphone. The most effective way to do that is with video. If you run a business and you're not marketing your business with video, here are some statistics for your to consider:

  • YouTube is the #2 search engine behind only Google. "Marketers who use video grow revenue 49% faster than non-video users."

  • "YouTube overall, and even YouTube on mobile alone, reaches more 18–34 and 18–49-year-olds than any cable network in the US."

  • "By the time 2016 rolled around, Facebook was reporting an average of 8 billion video views per day, doubling the average from just a few months earlier, with expectations that such growth will continue for quite a while to come."
  • "Viewers retain 95% of a message when they watch it in a video compared to 10% when reading it in text."
  • If you need more stats, here's an easy-to-digest video marketing study

Don't wait until you start seeing videos from your competitors before you begin researching video marketing. Video marketing is no longer optional for any business that wants to remain competitive. Video marketing is an additional, recurring marketing expense that needs to be budgeted for going forward. The sooner you determine what those expenses are, the sooner you can begin developing your video marketing strategy. 2018 is right around the corner. January is when you should hit the ground running with your video marketing plan, not when you should begin your initial research.
