Though I Am a Photographer, I Hired a London Wedding Photographer for Our Wedding

london hotel west hollywood wedding photography (12)Okay, so I know what it means to have a fast lens on a camera. I know what megapixels and f-stops mean. Terms such as shutter priority and aperture priority are part of my vernacular. I know all this stuff because I am a photographer. I photograph landscapes mostly, and I dabble in a few outdoor portraits. However, just like a doctor cannot do his own surgery, a photographer cannot photograph his own wedding. I needed to hire an excellent london wedding photographer to do our wedding. There were a couple of reasons for that.

First, I wanted my bride and I to have great photos of our wedding day to look at for the rest of our lives. Second, even though it is obvious I could not do the photography for my own wedding, people would associate the quality of my wedding photos with my abilities as a photographer. It is just natural. Even if they add it up in their heads that I could not take the pictures myself, they would wonder why I picked someone not so good if the photos were not excellent. This is why we needed the best. Inevitably there would be some wedding pictures of ours getting online with our names attached to them. When people search for my photography business, I want them to only see top quality for anything with our name on it regardless if I took the picture or not.

We settled on a top notch London wedding photographer that has an eye for light, color, texture and composition that is similar to mine. One of the things that my bride found attractive in me is my artistic style. She really liked the portfolio of this wedding photographer in London from the beginning. Yes, it was hard to give up the creative control and the camera for my own wedding, but the photographer we hired did an excellent job. Actually, I would go as far to say that he did a better job than what I could have done.

It is the Only Way We Advertise Now

Business Card Template with QR CodeI did an internal audit not that long ago, and I was surprised at the amount of money being used on advertising. It would not be so surprising if it had been working, but I did not notice a spike in our sales figures after any of the advertising blitzes. I wanted to continue advertising, but I wanted it to be good advertising. Otherwise, I am just throwing money out the window. When I started researching marketing and advertising tips, I came across quantum postcards for direct mail marketing.

We had never tried direct marketing this way before, but I knew we had nothing to lose. I looked at the site and was impressed with the variety that was on there. I already had in mind what I wanted, which was a small glossy card with our company name and address on it as well as a coupon that could be brought in for a store wide discount. Even though my mind was made up on that, I still looked at the other available options, knowing that I would probably switch things up with our next mailing if this helped our sales increase.

With everything that I read, I didn't see how it would not help sales. The thing I liked best, other than the actual designs of the cards, was the price. They were already low, but there were deals I could take advantage of as well. Because of the size of my order, I qualified for free shipping on top of already low prices. I don't know how they can offer such low prices, but I am grateful that they do. Business definitely spikes now after one of our advertising blitzes since that is the only way we do them now. I am already looking at a new design for our next advertising campaign!

Get Creative, It Works Better

We all think that promotional products are just things that people are going to throw away when they get home, which is definitely true if you give them something like a pen or a shirt, those things will be worn or used and then thrown away, never to continue returning on the money that you invested into them. Sure, they might help you to get some quick profit and that is definitely ok, but if you want something that lasts and lasts than I suggest you give them something lasting. The most recent good example of this that I can think of is a coffee mug, there are tons of them out there that are just blank and waiting to be printed on, of course they cost a little bit more than a shirt or a pen, but if you think about it, it is something that will never get thrown away.

Sure it might break sometime, but very few of them will end that way, a lot of them will last for a very long time and work out in your favor. I mean it is something that will likely get passed from person to person, so once it has worked its magic on one person it might end up in a garage sale where another person picks it up and the cycle continues, you don't get your use out of it just once, you get it many, many times. It is also a sort of conversation starter, people see something written and they instantly want to read it so if you make the cup interesting than people that see it will also have it stuck inside of their head, there is no way to lose with a coffee cup, but of course there are tons of other options out there, so essentially just get creative.

OUT & WITHIN, exploration of life,art exhibition

  1. OUT & WITHIN, exploration of life,art exhibition Event on 2013-12-30 11:00:00 ‘out & within’ e x p l o r a t i o n o f l i f e About the exhibition: Indulging in creativity is not only a passion for some artists but also is a way of discovering about human life and express through their creations. Promising artist Aniket Khupse & senior painter Satish Pimple go on a journey to explore and construe what human life is all about. Despite the age difference, they both seem to be sharing something in common – the zest to explore human life – and this exhibition is rendition of their discoveries from ‘out’ & ‘within’ life experiences. What is truly important and amazing is that they both present their works dealing with two fundamental aspects of life – one is metaphysical or realistic part and other is related to mind. Both are equally important attributes of human life. Whilst one facet is about dealing with outer, materialistic world, tackling various situations and moving ahead in life, other is about listening to your inner core, self-realization and contemplation. Listening to your mind dictates you to choose right path in your life and vise-a-versa, human mind grows and matures building upon real life experiences. Both aspects are correlated to each other and are incomplete without another. On achieving synergy between the two, a complete human being is created. Aniket Khupse: Aniket Khupse’s visuals can be read as intellectual and highly expressive anecdotes of human life. In his paintings, he treats canvas as a visual narrative where characters meet, tackle with various situations in life, react, learn from experiences, mature, grow and sail ahead in the journey of life. The proficient use of water colour in layers brings fluidity & depth to his compositions, constantly shuffling us between past & present. Khupse metaphorically uses various symbols to depict very sensitive qualities of human life, quite often as a subtle back-drop on his canvas. Apart from being a great visual treat of balanced compositions, colour harmony & textural quality, the personification created in his works facilitates very close dialogue to the viewers between them and his creations. Satish Pimple: Satish Pimple has been painting for nearly 40 years and his vast experience is evident in his ability to handle the canvas in an immensely captivating way. He manages to dive deep inside unfathomable inner mind where he reads imprints of emotions, memories, reactions and self-realization. His paintings are hence primarily abstract & sometimes semi abstract which portray a powerful & intense drama of on canvas. The abstract forms interact with each other in a harmony in his paintings. His bold patches & blobs of colours interweave and blur into each other to a varying degree and create a great sense of depth. He prolifically handles oil & acrylic making almost tangible textural patterns. One experiences a great amount of motion & force in his compositions taking you on this visual journey and at one point they become object of pure perceptual experience. at Artists' Centre Mumbai, India

The Meal Plan Definitely Worked for Me

weight loss, fat loss, fitness, looking good,I have been overweight for most of my life, but I had never really felt fat. I was pretty active, and my doctor was happy with my lab work results every year. When I had my tests done last year though, it came back that I was borderline diabetic, and my doctor told me that I had to make changes in my life. He wanted me to go on a 1200 calorie a day meal plan, and I knew that would be hard on me because I love to eat. He gave me some bistro md coupon codes and told me to look online to see if it was something I'd be willing to try.

I had never heard of Bistro MD, but I knew my doctor would not recommend anything that he personally did not believe in himself. I went home and looked online so I could get information on it, and I was really surprised by what I saw. I know that 1200 calories is not a lot of food, but that is only because I was thinking of the wrong foods. A few pieces of pizza and a greasy appetizer goes over 1200, but it also leaves me feeling not so satisfied too.

When I looked at the meal plans that Bistro MD provides, I knew that I would easily be able to stick to their meal plan. They have a very large selection of gourmet foods, and the portions are much larger than I expected. I knew that I would feel a lot better with the food choices, and I also would not be constantly hungry like I was before trying it. The codes helped me save money on my first order too, so that was a nice bonus. I have lost 50 pounds so far, and I feel great because of it.
