why me ?:

I have been a working creative with my own open studio as a Jewellery Designer Maker, who ran a shop on Folksy alongside 7 years of experience as a co-ordinator and board member for the largest visual Arts Festival in Oxfordshire. This combination of experience means that I fully understand, first hand, how much effort, time, and investment is involved in launching and sustaining your business, and how cost drives your every decision. Which is why I have come up with a selction of packages to suit most budgets.

benefits & uses :

Your online presence is dominated  by visual imagery. Most traffic that is driven from your social media sites to your website and online shops, will largely be down to the images you use. Google search, on how having quality images can convert sales and you will find a vast wealth of information on the value of having high quality images on your site. I'm not denying that today's phone camera's aren't incredible, yet , they still cannot replicate the creative control and high quality needed for printing use. So...here's my list of how having a portfolio of unique images can sustain you moving forward and make you stand out.

  1. Postcards, brochures, business cards, flyers of you at work or of you, make these a perfect marketing tool to hand out at exhibitions and events.
  2. Artist's Bio: Galleries in particular still like to see a history of your work and having a high quality image of you will make you stand out as professional.
  3. Online: Images of you at work on your contact and about me sections can convey a professional and serious approach to your work, instilling confidence in potential clients.
  4. Product photography. Clear factual images either stand alone or in locations that fit your brand. Highlights and showcases your hardwork so that customers can easily see what they are buying.
  5. Press and Media packs: Having a selection of the best images of you at work and your products may help you to get noticed quicker with mentions and inclusion in blogs,  journals and magazines relevant to your customer base. 

fancy a chat ?

I offer a free no-obliagtion Skype call with me. You aren't commiting to anything but it can sometimes help to chat and discuss the options open to you.

 

"I love what you've captured. I really like the focus on some of the close ups of the paintings and I love the wide angle aspect of the photo of the whole of the studio AND you've even got a few shots of me that are flattering which is rare as I'm not photogenic and yet you've got my personality shining through." Anna Dillon, Landscape Painter
