Doug was a regular customer in the sushi bar at the restaurant where I used to serve. Somehow or another I told him about my business. He’s now one of my social media marketing clients, and this was our half-hour personal brand photography session. We spent a few minutes before an open house posing some photos for advertising purposes, and so far we’re getting great feedback!
In an effort to generate regular bookings this year, one of my ideas regards personal brand photography. I'm looking for entrepreneurs and people of the internet who post online every day (or nearly every day) and are in need of high quality photos that tell their stories throughout the year.
The goal of this agreement is to capture your brand's story throughout the year at a fair price that is sustainable for both of us. I would like to meet with you 4 times a year to design a shoot for your brand which would yield enough photos for you to post every day (or nearly every day, depending on what your social media routine is).
If you post every day, we would create 90 images that would last one quarter of the year. If you don't post every day, perhaps we would plan for 60 images, or maybe even just 30.
These are not going to be like my portrait sessions. These are story-telling sessions. And yes, we are kinda trying to tell your brand's story before it happens! We're going to take your business plan and your financial goals into consideration to create content that will truly help your brand grow.
If you're the hostess with the mostest who needs 90 images, one for every day of the year, we'd probably design a shoot with a time limit of 3 hours costing $500.
If you're a little less of a social media mongul, we can organize a 2 hour shoot for $350, yielding 60 images.
If you're not sure you need this many photos and you just wanna give this "personal branding" thing a shot, let's do a one hour shoot costing the same as my current portrait session price, $250. The difference is that *if we both aren't satisfied with what we've captured in that hour, I'm willing to go over time to make sure we've captured everything you need for the quarter.* (The same kinda goes for the previous two models, though I do believe 2-3 hours will be plenty of time!)
In case you weren't already doing the math in your head, my photo sessions are $250/hour. 3 hours of shooting would normally cost $750, so if you agree to purchase my 90-photo package 4 times a year, you're saving $250 each time. In the end you'd be getting $3000 of high quality photography work for only $2000.
If this is something that you might be interested in, keep in mind that this is a big commitment from both of us! For this reason, I can only accept a small handful of these jobs right now. If you'd like to be one of the first and take advantage of these super low prices while they last, contact me now: email@example.com
The Virginia Synod Youth Assembly was my first ever youth event when I was in 7th grade. (I'm 23 now.) Dave asked me to be a LYO Board member and I kept coming back to events ever since, regardless of the status of my faith. As an adult I carved out a role for myself taking these candid artsy event pictures and it's honestly what got me into photography in general.
This year was special because I was asked by the synod office to photograph the main assembly. Being the official photographer for the event as well assuming my usual role as a volunteer at the youth event (in a way, two events at once!) was a lot fun for me. I loved jumping between both assemblies to capture the highlights of both and photograph as many beautiful faces as I could.
This is a selection of a hundred thirty-ish of my favorites. But if you were at the event and you wanna see all the photos, you can view them here on my flickr. If you'd like to be able to download all of the photos for personal use, please feel free to shoot me an email and I'll share my google drive link with you.
