I found myself at diGusto Yesterday with my buddy Franco where we for 2 straight hours photographed AND ate some of the delicious menu items diGusto has to offer, like the below PIZZA. Don’t ask me what the proper name for this pie is as I tend to black out when I am stuffing my face. Let’s just call it the “Mmph Pie”.
As my previous post showcased how one company used their custom photography images across multiple platforms the same can be said for the Killarney Mountain Lodge. Not only did they secure the web url www.killarney.com (I still cannot believe that this domain name was available) but they have created a very user friendly eye catching website that showcases their facility and services. On top of that they promote their business via their Facebook Page, Twitter & Instagram. They even showcase their custom photography with hardcopy marketing in the form of brochures and trade show booths. One “block” of images can be used across multiple social media marketing platforms including TripAdvisor, Google Reviews, Newspaper and Tradeshows.

I am accepting Custom Creative Shoots starting in April (Indoors) and May (Outdoors). If interested drop me a line and lets discuss what Quality Images can do for your marketing materials.
Like with any “business” big or small your prospective clients HAVE TO SEE YOU. If they do not know you exist then how can they possibly purchase your product, service or technique? If you are a business owner and you are reading this blog post but don’t have your own website (with blog), Facebook page, Twitter or Linkedin account (to name a small few) then eventually you are going to walk the way of the dinosaurs. You will fade………..extinct. The younger generation are coming into positions of buying, managing and marketing and how do you think they find, research and review their prospective purchases? Social media of all levels. I deal with many types of business’s and have seen this many times where the “old school” business is running great but as time passes by their visual presence stays the same and eventually becomes outdated.
Maclean Engineering seems to be embracing social media and within the last year I have seen many changes to the companies online presence. Now, I am biased because they do use a lot of the images I created for them but they are USING them on many different platforms from hardcopy marketing to social media. Just a few days of shooting in different locations and they now have an arsenal of updated visually stimulating images of their products with their people that they can use for the next year or so posting daily.
They get it. Are you?

Sudbury Restaurant MIC’s new menu will be out soon including this amazing Pickerel Dinner with Roasted Veggies.
The snow is melting in the Northern Climates and the first showing of dirt is making it’s visible return. Soon comes the dusty sand gritted wind that you can easily find on the mine site.

As the advancement in technology increases by the minute simulators are becoming more popular in the mining industrial industry. Training is more efficient both in cost and time while safety is not an issue…………..unless you trip on the way out of the simulator.
Take a look at the images you are using to market your company. Are they out of date? Irrelevant? Low Quality? STOCK? If you answered YES to any of these then your marketing materials are misrepresenting your company.
Here is an image from a few years back while I was on assignment photographing different trades across Ontario. If you own a small company with limited employees and you wish to grow your clientelle then showcasing your staff, product and fabrications to demographic is very important. Using custom images instead of “stock” photography can have your future clients connect with you by putting visuals to your business. Having a wide spread portfolio of images to use on social media is a must these days as the younger generation that are moving into the workforce are used to connecting on these different medias. Read why it’s always a better path to use custom images created for your company than stock images that are irrelevant or repetitive.
