I've already written about this in a new service page on our website, but wanted to highlight our new touch-less and physically safe photo sessions, which we can still carry out with the current restrictions (for how long? Who knows!).
When all these restrictions hit, all of our shoots were cancelled - whether because they were indoors in other people's homes, involved a large number of people, or were just too hard to do safely. But, we are photographers, and we want to photograph! We also need to make money. And we want to help our local small business community with something cost effective and useful in several ways.
Fortunately for us, we trade in photons, which as far as we know aren't carriers of the Covid19 Coronavirus! And so as long as we're doing our work from a healthy distance, in a place that is safe to be in, with a reduced number of people, we feel comfortable working - and we hope our clients will appreciate a healthy and fun outing from their social isolation.
We also know two other things about our fellow small business owners, because we are in the same boat: right now in particular, we all need to be out in front of our clients and audiences more than ever, to be able to rebound and increase our brand awareness for after the pandemic, and, we don't have a lot of spare cash.
So we took our personal lifestyle session, shrank it to something more cost effective, but that still provides plenty of high quality professional content for them to use for months.
Finally, every time someone purchases one, to be done now or after the restrictions lift, we will purchase you a $25 do a struggling business of your choice, or from our list, as part of our Pay It Forward to #SupportLocalYYC.
