A thousand words…

1 Oct

Just a quick little post to let you know we’re about to do a product photo shoot…with a professional photographer!

I’ve been following Australian digital agency, Punk Logic’s blog, and read the recent post about the benefits of valuing your online images.

As much as I’d love to whip out some high class, visual wizardry with my much loved little Canon Ixus, I have to admit the Punk Logic crew have a point.

So we had a little think about where to find a good freelance photographer to jump on board this project at super-short notice.

I was about to start cold calling local Indian photographers, when I dived into a WordPress, freshly-pressed-worm-hole and found myself on the photo blog of one Jacob B Murphy.

Jake’s been travelling though a large chunk of North India and visually documenting his journey. Check out a couple of his striking shots…

…and this fantastic shot from the final day of Ganesh Chaturthi – a major hindu celebration culminating in bathing Ganesh statues in the Arabian Sea (Yep, he was waist deep in water).

Jake’s agreed to spend a few days with us to capturing a few images for Conserve and some of the Commonwealth Games events.

Oh Yes. We. Are. Excited!

    Hey Liz
    I’m totally thrilled that you were inspired and it looks like you’ve found a terrific photographer in Jacob. I would love to hear your review of the briefing process with him – the value he is able to add before he starts for example. From his blog, he looks to have truly fallen in love with the country so I’m sure he’ll bring plenty of enthusiasm to your project. Best of luck and thanks for the props!

      Absolutely Matt, The ‘briefing’ process (if you can call it that) has been fairly organic. We’re working a lot of things out as we go and Jake’s been incredibly accommodating and flexible. Looking forward to sharing what we come up with soon. Cheers, Liz
