I have over 10 years experience as a full time photographer. I have photographed everything from hens nights (awkward), to hero shots, headshots, weddings, conferences, stock photos and so on.
I’ve completed the animation module for my Uni course. I’ve also created several animations for clients. My main aim is to get some emotion and character into my animations. So many of the ‘cookie cutter’ animations you see are just so bland.
I’ve included my profile video of Kris Casey because it shows her talking about herself and not specifically saying ‘I am great, sell with me’, although it shows she is great at her job, through the story she tells.
When I interviewed the new Principal, she told me a great story about why she moved her own children to the school. We hear all the time to ‘tell stories’, this video shows why we should. I’m sure you would agree her story ads trust and credibility to the video.
I really enjoy trying to be creative where I can. I think this video is a great example of how being creative can really help create mood and emotion.
Another example of a real estate property video.
My journey to becoming a photographer started with web design. In 2002, Olympic Gold Medalist, Brett Aitken and I created the worlds largest interactive cycling website. This was an incredible experience at designing for usability, I could see how small tweaks made such a massive difference to web traffic. We templated the design of our site for the fitness industry, this was where I discovered the camera!
I don’t see web design as graphic design for a webpage, it’s far more complex than that. I have a strange blend of skills that let me deliver very attractive, very functionally correct website.
Stanford Mowers is a great example of how web design can have a huge impact on a business. One simple design change increased engagement by 160%.
