It is refreshing to get outside of the box and present fresh and engaging photos. Marketing to a select few is just plain bad business, but creating inviting environments on social media, websites and print campaigns trends acceptance over the buying public. Utilizing everyday locations where many of us work and play gives a message to the common man that we (the corporation) are here with you. A big thanks to Esquire Court Reporting for moving out of the comfort zone for this campaign.
I am just amazed on all the tools made available to get a message out to the masses. I never could have imagined that social media has crept its way to almost everyone's life and that primarily all of our interactions or done online.
Well in away it's cool but I'm an old dog and still enjoy meeting people one on one creating relationships based on sight, touch and voice. I guess that is primarily why I love photography so much! The interaction with your subject, the set design, make up and hair, talking to people!
So the moral of my post is yes I am using social media to spread my passion of photography, but I do not want to lose myself behind a computer screen or my smartphone. I want to get out there and meet you.
