Do you have a project coming up which requires a commercial photographer in Ithaca, NY?
You’ve found a top commercial photographer who, through a centrally located home base, serves Ithaca and all of New York state.
As a commercial photographer in New York state, I serve a diverse base of clients, from financial services to agriculture with much of my work having a B2B focus. In the end these diverse businesses all have the same ultimate goal: to develop business and to enhance their relationship with their staff and clients.
I’m centrally located withe excellent access to a great network of New York State highways. This means that so much of the state, from New York city to the Canadian border is within a two hour drive of me. And that’s a “pile the gear cases in the car and head out” sort of thing that I do dozens of times a year.
The core area that I serve includes:
First and foremost you want someone with a focus on, and an understanding of, business communications needs. This isn’t social or consumer photography. You need to put a professional, competent, modern face on your business. And your visual representation of your business is the first thing many potential and current clients will see. And that can be done only by a photographer who is a communications specialist. Don’t put your business success in the hands of someone who offers a “me too” or “I always wanted to work on a project like that” approach because all they handle is consumer photography.
Look for a diverse skill set that shows competence in handling technical challenges as well as a consistency in the vision of the photographer. Additionally, look for someone who is seasoned at handling the challenges that arise from working out in the, actual, field and not in the comfort of a studio.
Beak and Skiff Orchards on the edge of the Finger Lakes region is a distillery and cider making operation. The goal was to have a portrait of the owner of the company which would be used in public relations and advertising to promote this sector of the New York state economy.
Work had to be done quickly. There is a business to be run, after all, and something like 98.999% of the people I photograph aren’t models hired to stand around and be at my service for a long period of time.
I worked to create a lighting design that highlighted the warmth of the wood cases and provided soft, natural looking light on him. The portrait was created around the needs of a video crew who was setting up and lighting for an interview. I posed him to look somewhat natural and relaxed, then worked with some light banter to get him to forget that there were 6 or 7 people standing around watching what we were doing. The relaxed expression came, we got the shot and were done in about 20 minutes.
Let’s speak about your visual business communications needs. Or just some photos that you want to create. I enjoy hearing about new challenges and offering ideas and solutions early in the planning process.
Get in touch today! I look forward to hearing from you.
