Bike Rack Beer

There are many hidden gems in NW Arkansas, the more you look, the more you'll find. There are all types of products being manufactured or distributed right here in your back yard. Every company has a budget, we can only imagine what Anheuser Busch, Revlon or Nike spends on marketing much less photography in a year. As Ivin Meisner said "Why accept mediocrity when excellence is an option".

Wouldn't it be great if local companies could have a greater level of commercial photography that would compete nationally? My goal has always to offer the highest level of photographic images, whether portraiture or marketing photography. Over the next several months, I'll be taking on internal challenges to prove that for commercial photography by going beyond the norm. One such project involved Bike Rack Beer. I had a vision and this is the result. I also added a 'behind-the-scenes' to show what was involved technical side of the final result featuring this product photography image. As a commercial product photographer, I am constantly expanding the level of creativity and stretching my vision. Wouldn't this be great for a national ad campaign?

Your Website

Your website is your presence to the world, people and prospects you may never know or see. It's vital that all elements are properly included, SEO, company information, services and photography. Everything on your website is a representation and reflection on your business. No doubt you spend a considerable amount on the website presence and other funds on directing people to your site, one of the key elements on the site is photography.

The photography on your website can do two things, it can make the viewer stop and linger on your site or can let them go on to the next site. What's the difference, the quality of the image. Professional quality photography will set you aside from your competition. If it's between you and another company a prospect is deciding on and all things are very close, but your competition has bad or amateur photography and you have invested in professional images, YOU will get the job. The best photography available will return it's investment many times over.

Over the years I've had the honor to create hundreds of commercial images in use on many websites. Each time I do, I either create a blog or social media post, or both, with backlink, to give them heightened publicity. Here are just a few of the web sites with images created by Branch Photography…

Diplomat of the Year

Dip_OTY

Being a Diplomat for the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce takes time, but is rewarding with the new friends you make, meeting new business owners and being a bigger part of the community. As a Diplomat, we are representatives of the chamber at business ribbon cuttings, Morning Coffee events, Business After Hours, driving for Meals on Wheels and other voluntary events. The more I volunteered and was out meeting new people and learning more about the new things going on in Fayetteville, the more I enjoyed it.

I became a diplomat for the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce, officially, January 2017, in November I shared the honor of being Diplomat of the Year with my friend George Turner, University of Arkansas. We were tied with the amount of work we had done. I was very surprised when it was announced at the annual Chamber Banquet by Patrick Harrington, Lewis Automotive. This year has flown by and I'm thankful to have gotten to know the fellow diplomats who also give so much of their time.

Legacy Bank - Springdale AR

Legacy Bank asked me to create several images for their 2016 marketing campaign. These images included several scenes around NW Arkansas as well as 5 of their bank locations. I always enjoy the twilight architectural images, they take a LOT longer but they contain so much of a WOW factor. That WOW factor translates into more attention to the marketing and advertising which increases the effectiveness of the advertising. One bank in particular in Springdale, their main branch, was a challenge but at the same time, a challenge I enjoyed and they really appreciated.

The difference is amazing! The goal is to create an image void of obstructions to completely focus on the building, the primary focus of the shoot.

Tyson World HQ - Discovery Building

I have always admired the architecture of the Tyson World Headquarters Discovery Building, located in Springdale Arkansas. I commend the contractors and architects for the building and design, I know Tyson is very proud of this addition to their world headquarters campus. That being said, I’ve been wanting to photograph it for some time. While I have photographed it during the day for Celebrate Arkansas Magazine, I wanted to get an image at night where the building really stands out. After a few emails to the right people, I managed to get permission and notify security what I would be doing. I would never attempt to photograph such a property at suspicious times of day without their knowledge.

I’m thrilled with the final image, all areas of the image are properly displayed with correct colors. I’m looking forward to seeing Tyson use this image world wide.

Hunt Tower

The Hunt Tower in Rogers Arkansas was recently completed and, as the tallest building in NWA it is very impressive. It stands at 10 stories with 230,000 sf and has many tenants quickly wanting in to enjoy this space.

As impressive as it is, I wanted to photograph it as soon as possible. I went one night and it couldn’t have been a more perfect an evening (except for the one car I had to remove from the image, but that’s ok). After that night, I spent some considerable time making sure every element was taken care of with no distractions.
