Guess what?! I have been blessed with the opportunity to showcase some work of mine in a display at my favorite local restaurant/coffeehouse/bar/generally awesome place! This is it...
Please look for it at Stories Coffeehouse, nestled among the string of businesses in the southeast corner of 180th and Pacific Streets in Omaha. The people there are amazing, there is live music on Friday and Saturday evenings, live worship on Tuesday evenings, and some extremely mouthwatering food.
When you stop in, ask for a salted caramel sipping chocolate. When you stop drooling, "check in" online and give them some love for being so awesome. :-)
I know - stop talking, Kat - all we want to see is your display. So here is the grand display tour...
Up front are three wooden blocks - a favorite specialty product from one of my awesome print labs. They are such a quick and easy gift - go check out all the pics!
KHP Vendor Shoots - something that I am so excited about and can't wait to do again! On the left is a brief explanation of the deal - local small business owners and I get together for a vendor photo shoot to display and advertise our areas of expertise. Vendors who would like to be involved bring their product/service into the mix, themed of course to the shoot. I coordinate - and shoot - the shoot and edit all the photos, then I share the photos with the vendors, who use them for advertising.
My goal with this program is to support local small business and also get my name out into the community by word of mouth - the best kind of advertising! The business owners get all edited photos to further their own businesses and we all enter into an agreement to encourage, support and spread the word about the other involved businesses.
The last shoot was based on the Mad Hatter's tea party from Alice in Wonderland and it was a blast! We had six businesses represented and it was an awesome networking opportunity as well. I know that small business owners tend to have a lot of ideas flying around in their heads. So, if any theme ideas come to mind, please share it on the back of your business card and throw it into that cute little rusty bucket! Stay tuned for the next themed vendor shoot - news will be coming out this fall!
Thank you for touring my Stories photography display! Please let me know if you've seen it in person! And if you're ever at Stories on Thursdays around lunchtime, you'll probably see me there, wiping salted caramel sipping chocolate from my face. :-)
"Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography."
