Update: We have all of our shoots fulfilled. Thank you!

Attention Business Owners! This project might be for you. 🙂
With the start of 2018 underway, lots of business owners start to take stock where their marketing is at and where it’s going (or should be going). They look at their website, social media, possible printed pieces etc., and start to map out what changes need to be made. Sometimes, it’s just a few updates, other times it can be a total branding overhaul. Having spent 15 years in the graphic design industry, I’m aware of the amount of work and cost that can go into these projects, as well as how important branding can be to one’s company’s image.

As social media becomes an ever increasingly staple to succeed in business, having an image of yourself as the business owner and integrating with your marketing materials is even more pertinent. Studies also show that viewers/possible clients WANT to see your image as it gives them a visual on who they are dealing with. A strong personal brand also establishes trust and a increases the scenario they will purchase from you.

From January 15 to Feb. 2, we’re seeking three business owners that would be interested in doing a Personal Branding Makeover (regarding the photography aspect). The photography could possibly include:
– Owner(s) portraits
– On-location exterior/interior photography (i.e. brick and mortar building)
– Staff portraits
– Product Photography
– Scenario Photography (i.e. a customer service image)

Chosen candidates for the project would receive incentives for their participation in exchange for Trish Hadley Portrait to use the images in our marketing. Incentives and deliverables would be outlined in a contract, as well as requirements for the chosen candidate. We are aiming to do shoots on: Feb. 4, 9, 16 and 23rd. Anticipated wrap date for images would be end of February / early March 2018.
