This Tangled Web: Photo Stories From The Road
Unwinding the circumstances which brought international business photographer Don Stevenson to a factory on the outskirts of Chihuahua, Mexico is fascinating. Here are Don's field notes...
A marketing assistant for a large international tool builder had been assigned to find an international annual report photographer to meet with her boss in Mexico for a commercial photography shoot they were planning.
As do many of our clients, this person found us through the internet using specific keywords in her search. Our commercial photography company was listed on the first search page for Corporate Photographer. We spoke, then arranged the flight, and she gave me the name of her boss who I would meet in Mexico. His name sounded familiar but it was quite a common name, nonetheless.
As you might have guessed, the stranger I met with in Chihuahua was a guy from my old Iowa high school and - get this - a cousin of the woman I married. I hadn't seen him in 20+ years. It truly was a surprise to us both. Life's twists are often remarkable. For these corporate and annual report photographers based in Arizona, it's all about creating the image. But sometimes what happens behind the camera between client and photographer just clicks!
For the last 48 months, the bruised and battered American & European economies have affected most commercial photographers along with just about every other segment of business.
Yet, last year in 2012, we saw many areas of the U.S. economy slowly gaining strength. And we've been busy throughout this past year. It's a good sign American business is beginning to turn around.
Our 2012 numbers reveal our national and international business photography client base is 60 percent of our assignment work. The other 40% of our work is throughout our home-base of Arizona and America's great Southwest.
We take great pride in our uninterrupted service to our national and international clients since 1985. We had planned for the economic recession. And unlike many photographers, we are still here to serve.
We certainly know there are other fine photographers out there for you to research. Many are good friends. But we haven't succeeded for 33 years without doing something right. Let us do something right for you.
Call or shoot us an e-mail when you're ready. We'd love to discuss your next photo project!
