I found myself at diGusto Yesterday with my buddy Franco where we for 2 straight hours photographed AND ate some of the delicious menu items diGusto has to offer, like the below PIZZA. Don’t ask me what the proper name for this pie is as I tend to black out when I am stuffing my face. Let’s just call it the “Mmph Pie”.

I recently had a discussion with a friend of mine (who’s company also used my photography services) about the photos I create for my clients in regards to return on investment. I was pleased to know that the company was happy with the images, but more importantly they are using the images in a variety of media to market their company. With the amount of usage the images are getting the ROI far exceeds the initial cost of the photoshoot.

First I found myself at MIC and now I have made my way to diGusto. Having these two gentleman around me multiple times while photographing their establishments and culinary creations I finally got the opportunity to put these two brothers in front of the camera this morning for a quick snapshot. I still think I came out with the better end of the deal as I walked away with a pizza and other goodies that I was reluctant to share with my wife. Looking forward to photographing (and tasting) diGusto’s menu items next week. Stay tuned.

Yes, I felt like making up a day today so I dedicated it to Mining Trucks. There are just so many to chose from so while it’s chilly outside this morning I picked this this image because I remember it being so freakin hot outside while on location for this shoot. Oh to be back there right now.

As my previous post showcased how one company used their custom photography images across multiple platforms the same can be said for the Killarney Mountain Lodge. Not only did they secure the web url www.killarney.com (I still cannot believe that this domain name was available) but they have created a very user friendly eye catching website that showcases their facility and services. On top of that they promote their business via their Facebook Page, Twitter & Instagram. They even showcase their custom photography with hardcopy marketing in the form of brochures and trade show booths. One “block” of images can be used across multiple social media marketing platforms including TripAdvisor, Google Reviews, Newspaper and Tradeshows.
IMAGES USED FOR NEWSPAPER ARTICLES LOOK VERY PROFESSIONAL

Like with any “business” big or small your prospective clients HAVE TO SEE YOU. If they do not know you exist then how can they possibly purchase your product, service or technique? If you are a business owner and you are reading this blog post but don’t have your own website (with blog), Facebook page, Twitter or Linkedin account (to name a small few) then eventually you are going to walk the way of the dinosaurs. You will fade………..extinct. The younger generation are coming into positions of buying, managing and marketing and how do you think they find, research and review their prospective purchases? Social media of all levels. I deal with many types of business’s and have seen this many times where the “old school” business is running great but as time passes by their visual presence stays the same and eventually becomes outdated.
Maclean Engineering seems to be embracing social media and within the last year I have seen many changes to the companies online presence. Now, I am biased because they do use a lot of the images I created for them but they are USING them on many different platforms from hardcopy marketing to social media. Just a few days of shooting in different locations and they now have an arsenal of updated visually stimulating images of their products with their people that they can use for the next year or so posting daily.
They get it. Are you?

The snow is melting in the Northern Climates and the first showing of dirt is making it’s visible return. Soon comes the dusty sand gritted wind that you can easily find on the mine site.

This is an oldy but still one of my favorite images especially when I had a large metal print made from the image for display. I captured this just as a few rocks slid down the front slop and created this HUGE dust cloud that eventually enveloped the cat.
Take a look at the images you are using to market your company. Are they out of date? Irrelevant? Low Quality? STOCK? If you answered YES to any of these then your marketing materials are misrepresenting your company.

100 ft is the same as 1000 ft when you are underground……………it all looks the same to me. From a recent session that found me in the mountain instead of under it.
