Customized Creative Promotional Branding Photography
Entrepreneur and motivational speaker Samantha Skelly approached me looking for promotional photography. Samantha wanted creative business branding photography for the launch of her brainchild Hungry for Happiness. This included content for website, social media, in addition to advertising assets. Samantha definitely had big dreams and goals for this business and that certainly came through in spades.
The Process – Hatching the Idea
As usual, the process is very collaborative. We spent a good amount of time talking about Sam’s journey and who her client is. From these conversations came the idea of rising above a fog. Rising above fear, uncertainty, and stagnation. Becoming a force of nature. Ultimately like the phoenix, Sam’s goal is to help her client learn to continually rise up no matter what brings her down.
Promotional and Branding Photography that must be FELT
Above anything else, the photography for Hungry for Happiness must be felt. Moreover, it should weave together ideas such as peace, power, and love. Throughout the energized and inspired pre-production process, the title naturally presented itself to me. To clarify, my personal work is quite often influenced by the works of Dr. Maya Angelou. Therefore, not surprisingly the phrase “…and I Rise” just kept repeating itself in my head. Thankfully, Samantha felt it was perfect. The end result gave us incredibly powerful photography coupled with a message that most importantly packs a punch.
