I am excited to announce I am now offering custom announcement stationery to my services.
This semester I have grown in numerous ways. I have broadened my love for different types of photography, from portraits to landscape. After completing the photography classes in the BYU-Idaho Visual Communication program, I am a confident and skilled photographer. I am confident utilizing all types of lighting, posing clients, and aware of composition.
Here are some examples of portraits from my portfolio of top images this spring.
As a personal style project for my degree in Visual Communications, in addition to my packages, announcement stationeries are now available. Offered as a package add-on, or a single service, announcement stationeries will be customized for you. Below are some templates I have created for examples.
Creating announcements can be stressful for those who may not have a background in design. This service is designed to ease the stress of graduates, brides, and others.
As an option to add to am existing package for $40, or as a stand alone service for $50,
I can create a custom announcement stationery and deliver it as a downloadable file with print rights. Clients may choose one of the above templates, or I can create a new one.
Each of these announcement stationery cards is my original work, from the design to my photography.
In a room full of photographers, who I want to all see succeed, let me tell you how important it is to set your self apart from the person to the left and right of you. Photography is a competitive market. However, we have all gained knowledge this semester to go above and beyond the average photographer, from light painting to bracketing real estate pictures. Each person in this room can present something unique and valuable to our clients.
For my Professional Imaging class at BYU-Idaho, I made a goal to add announcement stationery to my services to tie in my personal style. In a competitive market, it is important to add creative services to your business to set you aside from your competitors. I wanted to create something tangible for my clients and beneficial for my business. After some brainstorming, I decided to create a project where I could use the design side of my Visual Communications degree. Design is not a skill all photographers have, so because I have the knowledge, I am going to put it to use. What better way to market, than to have your clients use your photo to send to all of their contact’s addresses? I personally use Adobe XD and Photoshop to design and create these announcement stationeries.
During my time as a Professional Imaging student in Caryn Esplin’s class, I have developed a deep love for landscape photography. A stand out moment during the semester was when we were photographing the Buffalo River in Island Park, Idaho as a class, and Sister Esplin off the top of her head told us the settings she thought would be best for the lighting situation. I am amazed by her knowledge and am inspired to know my camera as well as I can.
