Brand Spanking New Year

Brand Spanking New Year

Happy New Year! 2023 is here and it’s going to be a good one!

One of the best ways to make sure this year’s a good one is to energize your brand with new images and video!

Most people schedule photo shoots when they’re in the midst of launching their branded website. That’s a given.

But the best brands are those that are consistently crafting a fresh visual message.

Photo and video shoots need to be an annual thing.

My recommendation? Is to go a little extra and not only to take new photos each year but also include a cinemagraph.

A cinemagraph is a moving photo. Remember Harry Potter’s album? Yeah, something like that!

The camera is on a tripod and there is only a slight movement on the screen.

See example here on the Orange & Bergamot website!

If you’re looking for a fresh look we would be so thrilled to schedule a photo / cinemagraph shoot with you!

We’ll help you get ready for your close up!

Say cheese!

When thinking about photos for your brand, make sure you go beyond a portrait and consider photos of you at work, in your element.

Draw the curtain back and let others see you immersed in work behind the scenes! Photos of you at work add another dimension to your brand.
