beautiful newsletter for your photography studio

Studio Marketing for PhotographersPhotography Studio MarketingToday's fabulous share comes from Lauren of Lauren Rutten Photography.  She writes, "I used the Winter edition of the Studio Newsletter Collection in combination with my branding to create printed and digital versions of the newsletter. I adapted the color palette and added my patterning to the design layout to bring a cohesive branding identity to the project. Some of the text remained nearly identical, while other sections I completely changed to give it a really personal voice. I played with the ideas of celebrating the Winter season so that it felt fresh, fun & inviting of responses. I love all four seasons of the newsletter templates and can't wait to get started on creating the next one for this Spring. The templates are a great source of inspiration and so adaptable to working with my branding. It was incredibly easy to create this first newsletter. Since most of my marketing focus up until recently has been my weddings, I thought this would be a great way to reach out to my current client base and larger network to say hello. My goal is to encourage the connections between the different aspects of my portrait work with my wedding & event work. I wanted to experiment with both a digital version as well as a printed piece, so I choose to mail 100 to my most recent clients & use mail chimp for an e-blast. The clients who received the mailed hard copy version were really wowed by the quality and extensive thought, as well as enjoying the humor within some of the copies. Several of my recent clients were so excited to see themselves included in the piece. I had a little client contest included and received email responses immediately back. One of the things I am learning is that timing is crucial in the e-blast newsletter world. I sent the newsletter out very close to the X-mas holiday...via email, Facebook & Twitter. Although it was clearly looked at by many people, I think that some of the excitement was lost in the busy time of holiday preparations. I will definitely take this into consideration as I prepare the Spring, Summer & Fall editions." We love this easy, gorgeous marketing piece!  Thanks for the great share, Lauren!  Enjoy your $75 Design Aglow shopping spree on us~

I recently travelled to Banff, Alberta on a spontaneous trip with another filmmaker, Mike, and we spent one week exploring around the national park. The trip was planned a week before we left. My friend flew from LA and met me in Vancouver and we began our 10 hour road trip.I recently travelled to Banff, Alberta on a spontaneous trip with another filmmaker, Mike, and we spent one week exploring around the national park. The trip was planned a week before we left. My friend flew from LA and met me in Vancouver and we began our 10 hour road trip.

What we do, as photographers, matters; and it matters a lot. What do people want to save when a house is burning down, being overtaken by a flood, or threatened by a tornado; what is the one possession people always hope to grab? Their photos; their irreplaceable family memories. Memories matter, and it's up to us as photographers to make sure that we capture their best selves. How do we do that? The experience.

I like to think of myself as the guy who escaped Ohio… The Army took me across the ocean, where I spent nearly five miserable years in Iraq and Afghanistan… Yeah, I didn’t like it there. Afghanistan and Iraq are just way too hot for people to get along; I think if there was a country-wide AC unit on full blast everyone would be a lot happier. But it was there, in that unrelenting heat, that I purchased my first DSLR camera and found my passion for photography.
