6 awesome photography services in fort collins
[b2b: event & pr, storefront & product; headshots]
[personal: senior pictures, kids, glamour & modeling]
I currently offer 2 major types of services to my clients, each with 3 individual categories.
1. B2B: headshots
Headshots are absolutely necessary to have. I primarily take these for two different types of people and for two different purposes:
CASUAL: USUALLY FOR DATING APP USERS
PROFESSIONAL: USUALLY FOR LINKEDIN, BUSINESS CARDS & WEBSITES
When you are ready to get your business portraits updated, then I am probably a good option for you. I am familiar with several different types of portraiture related to business portraits photography. I offer services which ensure that your headshots match your business style, whether that's a more silly/fun, professional, or you are a model trying to make your way into the business.
3. events & pr
Events can sometimes come in the form of PR type - I am usually hired privately by companies and organizations .Types of events that I typically see:
PR: PRIVATELY CONTRACTED FOR PRESS ANNOUNCEMENTS, SEMINARS, SUMMITS & OTHER PROFESSIONAL EVENTS
CASUAL: PRIVATELY CONTRACTED WITH NIGHTCLUBS, CONCERT & NIGHTLIFE EVENTS, ETC.
product & storefront
I provide these services to businesses because let's get real - unattractive pictures on your website are a turn off - so are stock photos! Therefore I manage photography to assist in helping business owners build their personal brand and come off as attractive to potential customers and clients.
STOREFRONTS: RESTAURANTS & RETAIL - INSIDE & OUT
PRODUCT: FOOD, DRINK, CANNABIS, ECOMMERCE PRODUCTS - YOU NAME IT!
3. senior pictures
Good old senior portraits. I'm not gonna lie, this is my absolute favorite type of service to offer people as a photographer. The only catch is that I only like offering my services to fun people. Okay, maybe I enjoy working with everyone and especially subjects which are challenges (also known as extremely camera shy.) Seriously, even for the most camera shy people out there, I'm usually able to pop off a few good images.
Senior portraits can be traditional, although I highly encourage my clients to include some sort of extra curricular activity, hobby or interest that they have. I work directly with teens and collaborate with them, while parents are generally just in charge of payments. Yes, yes - parents of course still have a say, however I also encourage seniors to reach out to me directly for information and to start planning for their session to make sure it isn't totes miserable.
Okay, so I know senior portraits are some of my favorites. I may have lied. I actually like working with kids just as much as I love working with seniors! And I love doing headshots. I pretty much enjoy taking everyone's pictures. I just so happen to take children's pictures more than anyone else's. Don't believe me? Just hop on over to the children's gallery and take a look at how many kids I have photographed! I actually specialize in children's portraits more than anything else. Cool beans, right?
If you don't really feel like going over to the children's gallery, then get ready for picture overload...!
how children's portraits are even possible
I have many tricks up my sleeve when it comes to taking pictures of kids. Some are more difficult than others, and I walk parents through it each step. The good news is that I do not time my sessions. As in, I won't just be like, "Welp. It's been an hour and this was just a one hour session. Your child was clearly in distress for the first 45 minutes so you may get about 2 or 3 good pictures of your kid, if you're lucky." To that I say, "BLAH!" That is not how it works when you sign up with me. I take my time when it comes to working with children. I am also familiar with behavioral patterns in children, and how to organize our time together.
So these pictures usually occur during family portraits sessions, although I do offer children's only photography sessions as well. I encourage parents to take a picture by his or herself as well, just because it's nice for your kids to have them, especially when you are older and they aren't as close to you. There are plenty of family portraits, of course too, but children typically get their pictures taken on their own as well as with family just to give you a little something extra.
6. modeling & glamour; boudoir & dudeoir
For people trying to build their modeling portfolios, I offer extremely affordable options and typically get them added to a list for upcoming projects that I will be working on. As with any person attempting to penetrate the entertainment industry it does require an open mind and confidence.
