Trio of picture ‘hits’ is all in a day’s work for our public relations agency
LISTEN up, chump. If your face doesn’t fit, we’ve got a specialist we can call on to make your little problem disappear. Capisce?
Behind the Mafioso melodrama, the truth is that our Scottish PR agency really does call on the services of a professional hit man. Or at least a man who helps us fashion bona fide PR hits.
Of course the shoots are of the photographic variety and our preferred camera man is a seasoned pro who recently carried out three separate “hits” for one of our clients in a single day.
Among those clients fully convinced of the power of PR photography is wind energy firm, Banks Renewables – and we broke one of our own records by arranging three separate photo shoots for them in one day.
Why should your business consider PR photography?
Whether you are a corporate hotshot or a star of a musical, a good PR photographer will help you to shine.
Yet the truth is that, even in this age of ubiquitous camera phones and the selfie culture, many people remain painfully camera shy. For whatever reason, they feel their face doesn’t fit and the thought of being photographed is deeply uncomfortable.
However, a top notch professional snapper like ours will have years of professional experience in putting people at easy and making sure even the most shy, awkward or reluctant photo subjects end up enjoying the experience and owning the moment.
Meanwhile our PR photography delivers incredible business value, boosting media coverage, providing fresh content for websites, social media, newsletters, staff intranets and brochures.
PICTURE PERFECT – Powerful PR photography is crucial for businesses, with the right images making a dramatic impact on success. Our essential guide delivers a compelling picture of how high quality photos drive media coverage, website success and social media buzz.
In the three years we have been working in a successful PR partnership with Banks Renewables, they have come to fully appreciate the merits of a great photo shoots – and we are proud to help them capture the right images.
Part of the ethos at our Edinburgh PR agency is to make sure clients get the best possible value from everything we do – and when Banks Renewables had a queue of potential PR photography jobs piling up we did the best thing possible.
Instead of racking up the costs of three separate photoshoots on three separate days, our expert PR team worked their little cotton socks off to coordinate all three jobs on a single day.
That was quite a feat of logistical planning, since the jobs were all in different parts of the country. We arranged everything on behalf of Banks Renewables, including briefing the photo subjects, arranging the venues and making sure the photographer had all the names and information he needed.
First up was a trip to Duns in the Scottish Borders for a shoot at the Renewables experts’ exciting new development at Quixwood Moor where Banks has planning approval to build a 13 turbine wind farm.
That was followed by a trip in-land to Earlston for our roving snapper – to capture a local businessman supportive of the potential Birneyknowe wind farm, which is propose for a site near Hawick.
Finally our caffeine-fuelled photographer ended the day with a delightful wee photo shoot with members of Glaisnock Valley Bowling Club in Cumnock in East Ayrshire. Because the club is close to the proposed Lethans Wind Farm, it was able to benefit from a Banks Community Fund.
