It's easy to see why the beer is so good at Brevard Brewing Company. They've got heart. Plus, we tasted it too! "We are a family-owned business in the heart of Brevard, North Carolina, specializing in creating hand-crafted lagers. We were the first brewery to open in Transylvania County." Being Orlando professional photographers, we don't get to go out of state for photoshoots as often as we'd like, but this was a great town filled with bikes and brews. We met with Kyle Williams, the owner of the brewery and took some environmental portraits as well as some lifestyle photos inside the bar. Kyle said he was looking for some great shots to update his website and marketing materials. Check out all the fun we had below!
We love mountain biking! If you didn't know that already, now you do! We went on a road trip up to Brevard, North Carolina to bike some real mountains (we're from Florida where we have gently sloping hills...) Those mountains are no joke! While we were traveling we stopped by The Bike Farm to shoot some professional portrait and lifestyle photography for their website and marketing materials. The Bike Farm is "a guide service and bicycle-centric eco resort and base camp for all your Western North Carolina adventures, The Bike Farm is here to cater to every need of the visiting cyclist, while serving as a community gathering spot for the locals." Big thanks to Josh and Brian who showed us around the Pigsah Forest - you're awesome.
On Wikipedia, lifestyle photography is described as this: "Lifestyle photography is a kind of photography which mainly aims to capture portrait/people in situations, real-life events or milestones in an artistic manner and the art of the everyday. The primary goal is to tell stories about people's lives or to inspire people in different times." We really enjoy telling stories, so for us, lifestyle photography is one of our favorite types of professional photography. Give us a business, any business, and there are some great natural ways to capture what your business offers. Photography doesn't have to be stiff or over complicated, it should feel real and authentic. Check out what we did recently with Credo Coffee in Downtown Orlando. They are a coffee shop with a couple of locations that offer coffee with a purpose. They buy directly from the farmers in other countries, you name your price and have your coffee (donation), then they take all the proceeds/donations and contribute them back into many Orlando area projects that help the community grow. Brilliant! Check out some of the images we shot at two of their locations in Orlando. Go help the community grow and get a nice cup of coffee while you do it. Feel good about your coffee.
Headshots don't have to be on a white backdrop, think outside of the box! To give your business head shots a new look, think about shooting in your own work environment. In these particular portraits, we were shooting for a marketing company, Fingerpaint Marketing out of New York. We worked with them to create a look that matches what they already had for their other care coordinators marketing material so each time they hire a new one we can make them all a cohesive look. Check out all the happy faces below!
