Instead of fitting in—you should STAND OUT

Hi there.

I see you. You’re hustling. You’re working. You’re losing sleep. You’re doing everything you can just to keep up with every other creative around you.

Bad news though: That’s a mistake.

Not that you shouldn’t work hard or dream big—that’s a given.

But trying just to keep up with everyone around you?

That’s a waste of time.

I see this in my inbox often: A request for photos just like this creative or that CEO. You think that if you can re-create their marketing strategy (including their imagery), then you can re-create their success. You want to keep up with the other creative entrepreneurs in order to fit into their version of success. 

And you might! But I promise, you won’t want to.

Everyone already knows what special about THEM. But do they know what’s special abut YOU

How can you ever show it if you’re busy being someone else?

If you fit in, that means you’ll really fit in: with the noise, with the norm, with everything that’s already been done. In other words, your audience has already seen it before, and they don’t have a reason to give your message any new attention.

Here’s what I won’t do when you drop into my inbox.

I won’t take photos that help you fit in... fit in to an industry, fit into someone else’s ideal, fit into the trend of what everyone else is doing... No. That’s not what you came here for. 

Here’s what I will do.

I’ll make photos that help you STAND OUT. From the crowd, from the competition, from the “been there, done that”—that’s where you belong, you bright shining star.

How do we work together to make sure you stand out? With evocative imagery, carefully crafted for your one-of-a-kind vision.
