Promotion & Presentation: Website

The best way to display your work as a photographer in the modern era is online. Having your own domain name is a very personal way to not only display your work but allow consumers to contact you. I decided to create a website that follows the same design theme I have adopted throughout my work. I like the style of having it a bit rough and hand drawn, as well as keeping it colourful. I feel this theme has a family friendly feel as well as being aphetically pleasing to look at, its also a design that can appeal to everybody no matter the age or task in hand.

Promotion & Presentation: Merchandise

Once I had created my logo I thought it looked pretty good as a standalone graphic. I thought I could apply my brand image to pieces of merchandise that can be sold or handed out at conventions as a way of marketing, getting my name out there. Although this theory could be adopted to many pieces of equipment; pens, key rings, USB sticks, stickers and so on. I created a few mockups of pieces of merchandise with my logo on it that I thought would look good.
Having quite quirky and different pieces of merchandise will grab the markets attention as they may not have them, they might be limit stock items or they haven’t seen other people hand them out so its a bit different.

Promotion & Presentation: DVD

When supplying my clients with their images I will offer the option to have them stored on a disc so they can view them at their own pleasure. Whilst designing the disc and cover I wanted to apply the same theme I have with all other physical objects that are associated with me. That way I can produce a brand image that is recognised with myself. I wanted to keep it simple, colourful and fancy at the same time. I didn’t want to clutter up the space with any images or anything unnecessary, its a DVD to a specific client so should be quite personal to them.

Promotion & Presentation: Business Cards

I have created business cards that are based around my logo. I feel as if my logo is nice enough to be used individually as a illustration or graphic therefore works as a business card. Its simple yet effective.
The business cards would be printed on high quality, sturdy card and instead of being the usual rectangle shape. It would be the exact cutout of my logo. On the back my contact details would be displayed in the font that keeps the style the same.
I believe the cutout as well as the logo are quite unique and stylish, catching my markets eye, making them want to take one.

Architectural Photographer: Fernando Guerra

Fernando Guerra is a well renowned Portuguese architectural photographer. He has an extensive archive of photographs on his website displaying architecture from areas of Portugal. Fernando has won many awards during his career for his photography, winning image and photographer of the year in many categories for architectural photography.
He has a very distinct style that he has adopted over the years, taking shots of building that have very sharp edges and vivid shapes. The building he shoots contrast the background making the structure stand out. It is often square building with many corners and edges, sometimes featuring vibrant colours. His composition is also key in each photograph, whether it be straight on or at an angle, the main focus is always the building and he makes it take up the entire frame.
