A Tale of Two Businesses (Mine and Yours)

A QUICK NOTE:   THIS POST IS A BIT LENGTHY, SO I’VE CUT IT DOWN TO THE NITTY-GRITTY  IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO READ THE WHOLE THING, THE STORY CONTINUES AFTER THE PICTURE.  IT’S A FUN-FILLED BACK-STORY OF HOW I FOUND MYSELF WORKING MULTIMEDIA FOR INDEPENDENTLY OWNED BUSINESSES.

NOW ONTO THE POST!

I’ve decided to make an official upgrade in my business.  Up until now, I have primarily offered photo services, with additional media upon request.  JonKPhoto is now actively marketing a full selection of media services, from photo and video, to advertising and social media.

Basically, if you think your company could stand to have a classier look, market more effectively, and acquire more customers, give me a ring and we’ll chat.

In the meantime, I’ve been working on a brochure for the multimedia services.  It’s a bit of a read, but there’s a pretty solid rundown of the primary forms of media that companies need and why they’re important.

… and now a little bit of back story.

I’ve got an idea – Let’s inspire some people.

I put up that last post (100 Tips from a Professional Photographer) a few days ago.  Then, I was lucky enough to catch presentations by Rosh Sillars as well as one by SpiltSugar.  It got me thinking a bit.  I figured that since I have ideas, perhaps I should write a list.  The best way to advance as an artist is to try new things.  What better catalyst than an objective party’s suggestions?

But this could be bigger – WAY BIGGER.

I want everyone to participate.  Why should this be limited to one person’s concepts?

Over the past three days, I have compiled a list of photographers from across the United States and from around the world, that I follow regularly or know personally.  However, I don’t know everyone on the planet – so it’s a safe bet that I’ve missed one or two… million.  This is where I need your help.  If you are a photographer, know one, follow one, or simply know of someone that would be great for this sort of collaboration, please pass this along.

I’m looking for tips or concepts to keep in mind while we’re creating work – no long presentations, nothing proprietary to your businesses- just friendly advice.  If you were at a convention or presentation and a fan came up to you and asked for a couple tips, what would you say?

I sent the initial email to my list of people this morning.  Please forward this post to as many photographers as you know.

If you have a concept for the list or a person I should contact, please leave a comment.  Thank you so much – I look forward to hearing from you.  Let’s make something!
