I created this quick portrait of Kaija yesterday after we finished a shoot for one of our mutual clients Northern Survery Supply. Kaija creates custom content for their social media platforms via www.socialriseagency.com I met Kaija last month and we discussed the importance of good content accompanied with good photography can make a big difference in a companies branding and social media influence. I enjoyed working alongside her yesterday and look forward to future content creating sessions.
In the past I have done a lot of food photography for different restaurants and ad agencies so it was a lot of fun to photograph some delicious subjects (food) a few weeks ago at “The Miner’s Son Restaurant and Lounge” located in North Bay Ontario. Owner Nicolas Gignac is indeed “The Miners Son” and is also the head chef bringing forth his unique culinary creations. If you or your company is traveling through North Bay Ontario make sure you stop in and say hi.
It doesn’t matter what product or process your company is manufacturing I can create unique images that convey to your clients the standards and professionalism your company is known for. Again and again I flip through industry blogs, ezines & magazines and the photographer in me screams a thousand deaths as I see sub par cellphone snapshots used to promote their companies. It reminds me of brides that spend hundreds of dollars on their wedding shoes but cheap out on the photographer that will capture their hopefully once in a lifetime special day hahaha.
If you are unsure about using a professional photographer, or you are not sure if you need an updated photo library for your company just ask a professional. I will tell you the truth. If I think your images are high quality that get the job done then I won’t BS you just to hire me. I will however give you an honest critique and a timeline on when you should update. You just have to ask.
