Your audience connects with who you are as a business as well as who you are as a person. There is a story to why you do what you do.
What makes you unique? Why should someone do business with your business rather than someone elses?
Maybe you give a percentage of your profits to cancer research. Or you plant a tree for every purchase a client makes,
The point is: your ideal clients gravitate to you because you share the interest or values or both.
That’s where we come in. We have extensive training in branding photography. Let us help you tell that story.
We strategize with you on what stories to tell to convey your message that connects with your audience.
Before we define “branding,” let’s start with your “brand.”
Your BRAND is your client’s personal overall perception of your business, product, service, employees, and even you. It is all-encompassing: your messaging, colors, logos, communication, stories, character, etc. In one word – it’s your reputation.
BRANDING is what you do to affect your reputation.

Our expectations have not only been met but vastly exceeded for the branding of our storage business! We wanted “how to use” videos for our different types of units and this was done unbelievably well, in fact we receive as many complements on our videos as we do on our facility. With Google Analytics we have received a RECORD number of impressions on our web site! This is not advertising funds spent but incredibly well invested!
