Welcome to my website featuring my work as a Cooperstown photographer who specializes in photography for businesses and publications.
If you’ve made it this far, it’s clear you are looking for a photographer who can handle annual report photography for you, or maybe business publication photography. My work is focused on serving the needs of internal communications for businesses as well as the needs of the B2B and B2C market sectors.
I’ve handled assignments in Cooperstown for businesses, institutions, trade publications and for clients needing meeting photography. That last one is a bit unique as the natural beauty of Cooperstown draws businesses who have spectacular meetings at the Otesaga hotel, which I cover for them as a meeting photography specialist.
With my central location as a Cooperstown photographer, I serve clients anywhere. Most of New York State is an easy drive for me. But right in my back yard I can help clients with assignments in Herkimer, Utica, Worcester, Norwich, Binghamton and Delhi.
What I can offer is extensive experience working as a corporate and editorial photographer. That means I’ve focused on the types of photography that businesses and publications need. Maybe that is documentation of a business’ operations, such as work I did at the Ommegang Brewery nearby. Maybe the assignment involved portraits of executives or business owners. That is the type of work I do. You won;t find high school senior portraits or other consumer/social photography on this website.
Experience. Relevant experience. You need a business marketing or advertising goal fulfilled. You don’t need some wedding photographer handling it just because they are the only person who shows up on a web search. Call me. I’ve worked for trade magazines. Handled assignments for manufacturers who make intermediate products and want to show how their products integrate into finished products which affect the lives or bottom lines of end users.
Photographing for business needs, corporate communications or marketing uses requires someone who has the ability to understand your position in the marketplace and can communicate that to the final audience. And that takes the specialized lighting. technical and people skills to make it happen. Additionally, someone with deep experience can ask the right questions way before an assignment takes place, making sure it goes off at the right time without a hitch.
I have decades of experience and the relevant skills for a successful shoot. Hey, I recently got a whole shoot killed because I asked the right questions. Access when and where the client wanted wouldn’t be possible. They were marshaling resources for a project that was destined to fail. It was not something anyone could have anticipated on the face of it. Except, I’ve been so many places because I worked as a photojournalist for newspapers for a long time. I know how to drill down and think through a shoot before it has happened.
I love speaking with potential clients about something that maybe might be possibly planned for sometime in the future. It’s great to help with ideas or suggestions. And who knows, maybe I’ll save your bonus by getting a project killed for you before it even takes place!
