Though every venue is unique and has its own style and approach that draws clients in, it’s nearly impossible to grab the attention of the general public without great photography in today’s photo-crazed culture. Whether you’ve considered producing a photo shoot so you can update your website or social media, or use the photos for printed paper materials, if this idea’s been in the back of your mind, it’s time to move it to the forefront.
We recently caught up with the owners of Catesby Farm Estate, who organized this stunning photo shoot with photographers Stephen Karlisch and Laura Ashbrook, and they were willing to share all the details behind their venue’s set up and how they thought best to capture it. Like many venue owners, they know that the best way to see Catesby Farm Estate is in person, but photos are the next-best option to getting potential clients on the property. Here’s how they created a successful photo campaign and booked real clients out of it.
