PERSONAL BRANDING PHOTOGRAPHY, PORTRAITS, AND VIDEO

Headshots, Personal Branding Photography, and Video

First impressions are everything, and while it may be cliché, a picture is worth a thousand words. So if you want to stand out, attract the right opportunities, and show the world you mean business, a professional headshot is where to start. You need a professional portrait for your website, your LinkedIn profile, business card, professional association website, advertising, you name it. In this connected age, business is more personal than ever and your clients want to know who you are. They want to put a face to your brand and they want your face to be one they can trust. You are looking for beautiful, and tasteful portraits guiding you professionally into poses that will cleverly flatter you while enhancing your personal branding. If you’re going through a re-brand, are updating your company’s “about” page, or want to present a more cohesive look for your brand on social media and all your marketing materials, I’m here to help you.

USER EXPERIENCE (UX) & UI DESIGN, AND INFORMATION ARCHITECTURE

UX Strategy, UI Design, and Brand Management

You understand that your clients are the most important. You want to conduct focused research and run usability tests to find what your customers love the most about your brand, and where there is room for improvement. You want user-centered layout planning for your website architecture. The overall success of a product (like a website) depends greatly on how well it is planned out and how its users interact directly with the brand. You want simple, easy-to-understand, clean designs, and creative solutions for your business and your customer’s needs. You need someone who can integrate branding, design, usability, accessibility, and function into your product. Someone with the ability to communicate design and development solutions through low-fidelity and hi-fidelity wireframes, and prototypes. You want a complete visual strategy for your brand and I am here to help you.

Unofficial Trailer of the Cult Film and Horror Film “Carnival of Souls” (1962) – Video Editing

Carnival of Souls is a 1962 American independent horror film starring Candace Hilligoss. The film was produced and directed by Herk Harvey for an estimated $33,000, and it was filmed in two weeks. Carnival of Souls did not gain widespread attention when originally released as a double feature with The Devil’s Messenger. Today, however, it is regarded as a cult classic.

The plot follows Mary Henry who ends up the sole survivor of a fatal car accident. Trying to put the incident behind her, she moves to Utah and takes a job as a church organist. But her fresh start is interrupted when Mary finds herself drawn to the deserted carnival on the outskirts of town and gets haunted by a phantom figure…

This video is edited with Copyright Free (Public Domain) footage from the original 1962 “Carnival of Souls” film, for a Post Production and Digital Video Editing project.
