One of our main challenges right now is how to show our work when many of our clients may want/need to keep their images private.
So often we’ve shot beautiful, beautiful images, only to have the client say they prefer they stay private. Of course we understand and fully comply with their wishes … but then, how do we share recent work with prospective clients? And in this day and age when social media is soooooo important for small businesses, not to mention the competitive environment, how do we feed the social machine when many of the images we're working on can’t be shared, particularly online?
So a new idea we've been tossing around is to launch a spokesmodel program...how fun is that?!
Sure, we’ve invited women in from time to time to model for us so that we might try out a new concept of lighting or posing, but the focus was always to see if we could get that idea to work for us, not necessarily for promotion. So we've decided to bring on a spokesmodel who we will shoot a few times a year – not only to stretch our creative wings – but to be able to show our images to the world via Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, etc etc. In turn the spokesmodel would chat about their experiences from their shoots, be compensated with FREE high resolution images from their session (that could be used in their modeling portfolio), and be able to purchase products through us at a discounted price.
So, with that being said, we are hereby officially launching our 2015 Spokesmodel search!
We will be seeking women between the ages of 18-40. We're not necessarily looking only for professional models. Just everyday women who are comfortable in front of the camera!
