I’m certainly very proud to announce that we’ve recently been featured in PDN EDU magazine, which it targeted towards young and upcoming photographers. This time around, PDN has put together a “data” issue, where they discuss many aspects of data management important to photographers.
They chose to feature Hunter Photographic for a few reasons. First, I have never been shy about sharing my experience with Google Analytics and SEO. Based on my prior career experience, I prioritized the use of both within my business. The results speak for themselves. We rocked to the top of Google for our most critical search terms in less than 18 months. On top of that, I’m able to measure our results with Google Analytics and respond quickly. This approach has truly changed the nature of my business for the better, and I highly recommend new and established photographers embrace the power of SEO and Google Analytics.
So, go see the entire issue for yourself. The entire PDN EDU issue is online and free to the public. There is a wealth of great content across the entire issue and I highly recommend a read.
Whenever possible, typically dependent on time, I love to share wedding albums my clients design. Each one is unique and special. Plus, every wedding album turns out amazing. Not too long ago, Erika and Scott’s wedding album arrived in my office. I had just a few minutes to capture the album before I delivered to their waiting hands.
Erika and Scott chose a very classic and contemporary fabric for their wedding album. It’s a gorgeous gray, raw silk that features a very high sheen. The album is encased in a protective presentation box, held shut with a magnetic closure. The ribbon, while only decorative, puts a perfect finishing touch on the whole presentation. Within is an Heirloom album, one of two that I offer. The Heirloom features thick pages, which are stiff as boards. With extra pages Erika and Scott chose to add, the album weighs nearly 10 pounds.
A wedding album should be substantial. They’re supposed to last for generations. I want my client’s grandchildren to hold their album, so I have always been careful about album selection. This is why I insist on the hand-made approach, and why I use Cypress Albums. Dena and her team make it right the first time. Everything is hand-made and everything is custom. I even had the chance to visit Cypress as this very album was being made. Seeing the work in process really helped me to understand how seriously Cypress takes their work. What Cypress does is really amazing.
Below are just a few highlight’s of Erika and Scott’s album. I hope you enjoy!
I’m really appreciate good presentation. So I made sure to wrap up Erika and Scott’s wedding album and seal it nicely with a bow and tag. As I work on more client albums, I will share what I can. Definitely stop back to see more soon.
Recently I had a chance to visit California once more. Specifically, Los Angeles and Malibu for a wedding photography workshop. Caroline Tran’s Propel workshop was simply amazing. In fact, you can see some of my work from Propel here and featured on 100 Layer Cake. Today, I thought I would share some travel photography from the trip.
Everything is shot on film. In fact, I don’t even know why I brought my digital equipment. It largely just stayed in the bag. I was really thankful to have the opportunity to visit some places that have been on my list for a long time. Griffith Observatory, Venice Beach, LACMA, Richard Photo Lab and Cypress Albums. I even got a chance to see my own work being produced by my favorite vendor-partners. Taking a coupe extra days to extend my trip was certainly worth while. I did miss the Getty Museum, but I have seen it once before.
There is not much else to add, so please enjoy just a few highlights below -
That last one of me was just for fun, or to finish off a roll of film. I think it’s one of the few self-portraits that I have. Definitely stop back soon. I have more work on deck from the Propel workshop, California, the British Virgin Islands and some new client work coming soon.
PS – Those two little blue dresses above are from the movie The Shining. I happened to catch a Stanley Kubrick exhibit at LACMA, which was awesome!
