While Covid-19 restrictions remain in place, more businesses and venues will be permitted to open on Monday 12 April. So as we move toward a more normal way of life, businesses are beginning to plan portrait shoots, events and conferences.
The reality of business after COVID-19 is that not everyone will recover. Some businesses that closed will never reopen. Are your regular image suppliers still going? Looking for a new photographer? I am happy to quote on projects, send over my rate card or perhaps a brief Zoom call to talk over your requirements?
During this time business marketing has rapidly changed. The adoption of new ways of working has accelerated as consumers and businesses turned to digital and reduced-contact ways of accessing products and services. This shift is likely to stick, to a large extent simply because e-commerce and e-business is often more efficient and less expensive. Fewer business trips and expense accounts will be needed. Do you have the correct visual collateral to represent this?
For many the work from home model is also likely to stay for a lot of organisations and individuals. The home is now the hub where people live, work, learn, shop, and play. New staff will join your business that rarely visit the office. Do you need a flexible photographer with a mobile studio that can visit them safely? I can create a series of matching and complementary business portraits even if your team is miles apart.
I've already been speaking to event organisers about plans for September and October. I have bags of experience getting onboard early in a project cycle and can help you get the most visual impact for your social media channels, as well as editorial and trade press coverage. DM me to organise a chat.

"I have employed David for conferences, presentations, social engagements, marketing materials, open days, portrait shots, official document signings amongst many others. David has always been amenable to our sometimes short notice and has delivered our photos in a quick time frame as agreed and sometimes much quicker depending on our needs. He has always been very helpful, he follows and delivers on the brief and is able to give additional value to jobs with minimal briefs. I am more than happy to recommend David and he will no doubt deliver the same quality he provides us."
