MOST EVERYONE IS MISSING SOMETHING!

So you have plans for a portrait, a head shot, maybe a photograph of your premises or even a video?

There are some questions you really need to ask first…

  • WHY are you doing the it?
  • WHAT is it for?
  • WHO will be seeing it?
  • WHERE will it be used?:  + digital or print?   + at what scale?

These questions are all rooted in BRANDING and VISUAL IDENTITY, which informs MARKETING STRATEGY. I can’t really answer a question like “which portrait is best?” without having answers to these questions.

You shouldn’t get a portrait or head-shot done without having worked through and properly documented:

  • BRANDING
  • VISUAL IDENTITY
  • MARKETING STRATEGY
  • INTERNAL MEDIA MANAGEMENT

These things inform ALL YOUR MARKETING. I mean:

  • Headshots
  • Portraits
  • Website Design
  • Brochure Design
  • OFFICE DESIGN!
  • Vehicle based media
  • TV media
  • Billboards
  • Digital Displays
  • Approach to voice-overs
  • Tone of radio adverts
  • Selection of background music
  • Pace and cadence of all audio

On top of all that, it also affects:

  • General photography style
  • Videography style
  • Aerial videography and videography style

If this seems all too much to consider, it’s not for a seasoned professional, pricing that professional has a bread based marketing and media background. The problem is, not many do! There are too many that bite off more than they can chew.

My experience covers:

  • professional photography
  • professional videography
  • interview host
  • Voice-overs
  • Live radio host
  • One of Melbourne’s leading disc jockeys when young
  • Trained in the School of Audio Engineering; worked in studio and with live bands.
  • Website Designer and Developer since 1998!
  • Experience with both digital and print media (and understand the way light and colour works in both, plus the differences in ‘gamut’)
  • Have designed shop Windows, vehicle signage, billboards, digital display advertising and more.
  • Marketing scripts and telephone scripts
  • Advertising campaigns

I’m the guy you need on your side when you don’t have mature, knowledgeable help in house. I also have industry connections in radio, assistant photographers and videographers, web based facilities, printing and more.

PLUS I’m the guy that started and runs the growing “Ballarat TFP – Photographers, Models& MUAs” group in Ballarat, giving me access to other photographers, models and makeup artists to make your advertising come alive!
