“Photos visually punctuate the sentiment of every single story you want to tell.”
‘What we’re talking about here is an opportunity to merge the visual with the written word or the spoken word and bring them together to create a very impactful piece of content.”
“Photos give you that quick zing, that pop and again, when paired correctly with the right type of story it really sends a lot of positive vibes.”
“We need to capture these moments that matter.”
There needs to be a real conscious effort at choosing the right photos that make sense with what you’re sharing with your audience.”
