Marketing Portrait : Joe Pyle Photography
There are several reasons to get a good marketing portrait made. How many of us are on LinkedIn or Google+ and have someone who wants to be a contact that has the default, two color, “schmutz” headshot as their profile. Point at your screen and yell “WHO ARE YOU?”. Then do yourself a favor and look at your own profile pic. Is it good? Does it show your real character? Is it a clear representation of who you want to be? Is it the dreaded two color “schmutz” shot?
Over the past month I’ve taken a new approach to marketing and photography. I’ve decided to work with people on the price of the shoot so that I can get more publicity and more of a web presence. Some may say that I’m “selling out”, or “dude, get paid what you’re worth”. I believe that what I’m doing is creating more worth than if I were to pocket cash. Investing in my business is worth more to me right now than the amount of money I’d pocket for a shoot. If you want to know how much I’d charge for a portrait session, go here to my pricing page. Now, if you want to know the deal I’m prepared to give, contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The following people have had their portrait made recently and I’ve had a great time meeting them and learning about their endeavors. The first is Troy Miller, of Koala Pay.
Another recent portrait I’ve made is Andrew Sherburne of FilmScene.
The reason I am putting this post out there is to offer you, the reader, an opportunity to get a image made. I am interested in working with you and will get you a shot you can use, or we’ll do it again. Let me know!! Peace!
