Tell us about your business
I am a portrait and commercial photographer. My clients include families, couples and individuals, as well as businesses requiring professional images for online or marketing uses.
Have you noticed a change in what your customers want?
Having online professional business images is very important right now. Many people are looking for jobs and they need their profiles to stand out and look professional.
What’s the business innovation you’re proudest of?
During the peak of the coronavirus restrictions I developed a contactless process to safely receive products, shoot and provide photos for my clients. It was very easy and convenient.
How do you support the local business community?
At the start of the restrictions I worked with small businesses to provide them affordable, quality images so they could get their products online quickly. I also promoted their business via my social media. It was a special project I did and it was great to see my images being used to support small businesses.
What is your business focus for recovery?
Getting out into the community, networking and meeting people again. Life is slowly returning to normal and having that personal connection with people has been sorely missed.
What’s your advice to other Brisbane businesses who may be struggling?
Work with other small businesses and combine your marketing exposure. So many small businesses would benefit from sharing and combining skills, so by supporting each other we all win.
