PHOTO + VIDEO
a picture's worth a thousand words.
Photography and video marketing are more important than ever in terms of communicating your message — for articles, webpages, email newsletters, social media and even press releases. We’d be happy to help you create original photos or videos, or to find appropriate stock imagery, to make your project stand out.
Need original photography for your website or marketing project? High quality photos are key to the success of your design project, and we can help hook you up with the right photographer, whether you need creative portraits, food photography, home/room interior photography, or something else. We work with a number of extremely talented professional photographers with different styles and subject expertise all over the United States. We’d be happy to help arrange a studio or location photo shoot for you. We will then work closely with your photographer to ensure that your shoot results in the highest quality images that are just right for your website project or marketing needs. Please note that cost will vary dependent on the photographer you select for your shoot, the type and length of the shoot, number of locations, and amount of travel involved for the photographer.
PHOTO CREATIVE DIRECTION
We work with clients all over the U.S., and frequently they have a photographer or videographer they like working with in their area — but they don’t know how to get the best results for their specific website needs. We can help with everything from wardrobe choices, background choices and how to frame your shots for the best presentation online. Photo shoot consultation typically takes about three hours — a half hour to an hour with you before the shoot, a half hour to an hour with your photographer before the shoot, and an hour to go through selections after the shoot.
Whether you’re looking for professional shots for your ecommerce site or creatively styled photos for your Instagram feed, we’ve got you covered. We’ll connect you with the right photographer for the style you need, and provide creative direction as required. Note that pricing will vary based on the type of photography required, the number of products being shot, and the type of background or studio setup required. You may also specify whether you need formal studio shots or informal Instagram-style shots.
Need stock images for your site, email newsletter or social media pages? Our expert photo researchers have years of experience choosing strong images to complement your copy. We’re available to help out with one image or a batch of several hundred. Please note that our photo research rates do not include licensing fees — we’re happy to work with your specifications in terms of cost limits for paid stock images. Photo editing, cropping or resizing may result in additional cost, depending on the amount of editing required. We will refuse any requests that violate photographers’ licensing agreement.
BRAND STORY VIDEOS
We’re rolling out new storytelling-based brand video marketing for 2018. Brand videos will typically include interviews, footage of your workspace or retail space, demonstrations of you performing your craft, finished product shots, and/or any other fun things we can think of — these videos really give us a chance to have fun and get creative. Each session includes 2 hours of shooting time and 3 hours of editing and approval time. Music licensing is not included with brand videos, but we can help you locate music within your budget, and we’ll be happy to help recommend something appropriate for your finished piece.
We are excited to offer drone video services for local businesses in the St. Louis area and throughout mid-Missouri. Drone shoots typically involve two hours of photography and one hour of editing. This form of video marketing is great for realtors, builders, landscapers, and other businesses who need strong exterior video. Please note that music licensing is not included with drone videography, but we can help you locate appropriate music within your budget.
VIDEO DIRECTION, SCRIPTING AND EDITING
Need something video-related that falls outside our current offerings? We can help with scripting, shooting and editing video content to suit your needs. Whether you need to set up an interview-style shoot, something informal for social media, or even something more like a short film, we’ve got you covered. Let us help take your video marketing to the next level.
Note that we do not currently offer animated videos or any type of animation services.
It’s time to step up your visual content game, and we’re ready to help.
