Work that Matters 1-1

Professional Head Shot Portrait

Seth Godin

I’ve long been a fan of author and speaker Seth Godin because his marketing philosophy emphasizes serving the customer and the community, to make things better by making better things. The opposite being a slick ad campaign that will turn a fast buck.

His books include these favorite titles, Permission Marketing (2000), Purple Cow (2002), All Marketers are Liars (2005), The Dip (2007), Tribes (2008), This is Marketing (2018).

Work that matters is “…about roots. About anchoring your work deeply in the dreams, desires, and communities of those your seek to serve. It’s about changing people for the better, creating work you can be proud of. And it’s about being a driver of the market, not simply being market-driven.

So, thank you Seth for all you do.

What Matters?

When it comes to my portrait work, what matters is the look on my clients face when I hand them the final product. I’ve built a pretty solid niche in the head shot portraiture for business professionals and entrepreneurs space. Additionally I offer branding, family, beauty (a.k.a. boudoir or glamour), senior or graduate, event and commercial photographic services. What matters is the stuff you’d be proud to hang on your wall, print in a book and post on your website.

Recent Work
