What business does a documentary photographer have in branding?
Good question. And the simple answer is authenticity. Unfortunately, we are aware that social media trends have cheapened the word, touting everthing from naked selfies in front of a Bali volcano to online handbag shopping as #authentic.
But that doesn‘t alter the fact that being genuine and insisting on accuracy will go much further towards selling your business than hype ever did. And with a background in journalism we not only strive to be authentic, we have been ethically bound to do so for so long we just can‘t seem to shake it!
What services do we offer?
We focus on storytelling whether its through photography or filmaking.
Your story might be about your staff, your products or your services and we can document this as a series of images, a short video or a combination of both.
Ultimately, we hope to equip you with an brand library of your own personalised content that you can use in everything from social media campaigns to annual reports.
What is a brand library anyways?
Ever heard of Shutterstock? Or Getty Images? These are photo agencies that have gigantic libraries of images for anyone to use. The downside is that they are ‘stock‘ or generic, so there‘s nothing that sets you apart from the crowd or makes your product unique. Creating your own library means you can avoid being commonplace, and ensure that your customers know and relate to the real brand.
What is your style?
We prefer to keep things simple, using natural lighting and atmosphere to create genuine images and films. We are not a marketing team, though we can work with yours.
Do you travel outside of southwest Australia?
We regularly travel to Perth and are happy to go anywhere really as long as our travel and accomodation are covered. Please contact us for details.
We are a small business, do you have payment plans?
Absolutely. We require a 30% deposit on booking and the remainder will be invoiced. However we can easily work out a plan that suits you. Just be aware that no images will be released until payment is made in full.
We are also happy to discuss using a retainer fee for ongoing services and provide adjusted rates for multimedia content creation (photography and film).
