Photos and Videos Should be Part of Your Marketing Plan

Are you in need of a new marketing plan? As a photographer and videographer, I can help.

 Utilizing photos and designs into your marketing campaign is an amazing way to grasp your target audiences’ eye while also fully expressing what and who your business is made of.

These visuals are not just important for marketing a business, but for artists as well, like me.

Artists themselves need marketing in order to showcase their designs and talents. In a recent shoot, I created a marketing campaign for an artist from Portland ME, who needed images to broadcast her upcoming shows in Portland and Miami. These images will be used for her to print materials, use in emails, and market on social media, with images shown below.

Just as a business markets its products, it is important for you to advertise yourself as an artist, as well. This is to show your strengths, and to get your name out to prospective attendees or sponsors. Having the proper artist showcase and capture who you are in order to market your talent on all available platforms will only benefit you as an artist.

Remain confident in yourself, and confident in me. I can bring your talent to life and help gain you a following to become the prominent artist you can be.

Capturing moments and memories – that is what photos are all about. To give you a chance to relive and re-experience the joys you had at the time the photos were taken.

However, with the holiday season approaching, now is your chance for you and your family to make up for the lost time!

The Importance of Headshots

Have you ever applied for a job, but when asked for a photo, nothing you had was appropriate?

Having professional headshots done every couple of years is extremely important to your image  and your personal brand. Having a photo that you can send along with resumes, applications or  to bosses can either help you or hurt you, depending on your quality photo.

When you have a professional headshot, you are guaranteed to make a good first impression. A headshot will allow you to take a further step into the professional world and give  a face to your name. A face that looks healthy and is appropriate.

And these shots should be done by Philip Marcel Photography.

I have years of experience in photography and specialize in helping small businesses thrive. This means that I have worked extremely hard with multiple companies, mainly shooting headshots. That gives me a wealth of experience with the job.

Do not wait until you need a headshot, and it is too late. Call and get one today! Keep your image updated and give a great first impression.

The Importance of Photo Archiving

Philip Marcel / Uncategorized / / 0 Comments

The evolution of technology has been both a blessing and a curse. With the aid of technology, photos are able to be shared and saved in a much simpler way than in the past.

However, many people still prefer the old school method of saving photos due to the fear of losing their cherished memories. Failed hard drives, a lack of access to your photos, or a dead computer can all lead to a loss of precious memories that you thought you would have forever. Luckily, there is a way to avoid this.

I not only work hard to edit and create the best pictures for you to have, but I give all of my clients access to a private gallery of their photos. By archiving my clients’ photos, there is never a chance of lost photos and my clients have personal access to every photo that we create together.

I do this for every client that I work with, since every client is so important to me. Having access to their private gallery means that photos can be shared with you as they are completed, so that you will get them quicker, and that you can then share them with your loved ones at any time.

Losing all of your photos is a terrible thing, and whether they are on a hard drive or backed up on a computer, the chance of losing them is always possible.

One recent example of the benefit of photo archiving occurred with a Realtor client who was at a conference preparing to make a presentation, when he suddenly realized he did not have access to the photos we shot for him. Because the photos were archived, we were able to send him the original link. He accessed the photos and make a successful presentation.

With access to a private gallery, your photos will never be lost. Don’t risk your photos getting lost and choose to create lasting memories by allowing me to photograph you.

The Importance of Photography in Promoting Your Business

The amazing idea of supporting small businesses has blossomed this past year, and many people are intentionally seeking out local businesses in order to do just that.

While this is a great idea, it’s pretty hard for people to find you or your company if you don’t have a website or another way for people to find your business. As a photographer, I can be there to help you on your way to discovery.

I work and have worked with smaller businesses to promote personal branding. Capturing the perfect photos for your website or advertisement, whatever you choose to do, is crucial to the success of your business. With marketing turning to the Internet, users only spend an average of 8-10 seconds every time they look at an ad. This does not give businesses a lot of time to get viewers interested. That means that the best way to get someone’s attention is going to be through an amazing photo, and that is something that I can provide for you. That means it is my job to capture a viewer’s eye for you; to help promote you to achievement.

When it comes to personal branding, having a photographer that works hard for themselves and for their clients is crucial to the success of the photo.

That’s the case with Berthina L. McGill, LMHC, Mental Health Counselor, and other professionals we can work with. Those business areas include private practice medical offices, independent auto repair shops, massage therapists, real estate agents, independent construction contractors and many more.

I promise to work with you and for you so that you can receive the perfect image that you want and deserve for your business. People are looking for you, so make sure that you are seen!
