Marketing Yourself on Social Media

The beauty of today’s Social Media Market is that the world of Facebook and Instagram and Snapchat are FREE. And as a business owner FREE is GREAT. But, no one ever handed out a Manuel on how to market on social media the right  way. 

Here’s our top 5 points to consider when starting your buisness media presence. 

IMG_2615.JPG

Headshot created by Kansas City Photographers Pimentel Portfolio LLC.

1. Your face is the face of your new Buisness. Get a professional headshot of yourself. Use your headshot for all your media outlets.  It often amazes us when we do sessions for clients and then go to look at thier media links and never see the images they paid for to be made in action.

2.  First appearances are everything !  Your mom used to tell you that and it’s true! As a representative of your business it’s up to you to display professionalism.  Have a professional Social Media Video made for your business.

3.  Be Neutral, Truth Hurts.  Ok this one is a bit political but hang in there. It’s for your own good. Be careful with your posts to be neutral. Don’t take this personally.  It just allows you to reach more customers who want to hire you.  

4. Don’t be repetitive on your media business posts. You know you hate it when a buddy post his football party pics on Facebook and the same one on Instagram. Switch it up a bit. 

5.  Media presence is the knock on the door in today’s selling world. And quite frankly it’s no longer a “Hi! This is me!” But a “ Hi, this is what I can produce for you !” Be yourself and show your stuff!  

The opportunity to grow yourself comes hand in hand with growing your business base. Network, chat, meet and greet as many people as you can. And remember EVERYONE is a potential client. 

Cheers!

What is a Contemporary Senior High School Photoshoot? Pimentel Portfolio KANSAS City Photographers can tell you what they are not !

I remember with pain the moment I was told by my parents you need to get your senior images done.  Eek I was so frightened and didn’t know what to expect. I begrudgingly made the appointment and went in with my bestie in tow. 

We both wore stiff ironed never worn before outfits and walked into the dusty local downtown studio and sat for 15 min on-a prop chair and boom boom we were shot by someone I do not remember.  And when the images hit the yearbook I looked frightened, uneasy and like I hated every minute.

Today’s contemporary Portrait setting has changed so much.  Not just for Senior Images, but for every genre.   When you do a Photoshoot with us you are going to have fun! And, you will remember it.

The Portrait by Kimberly Pimentel

 

I am a Portrait Photographer.

I capture and preserve portraits for people so they can see and embrace their real selves as others see them.

I remember with fondness years ago as I was purchasing my first L series professional lens. It was a Canon 50 mm 1.2 L. As the young clerk at the local electronics store where I had  purchased  the lens smiled at me and said, 

IMG_5880.JPG

Portrait of Flamenco Dancer

 

“Wow your getting the 50mm 1.2! That’s a amazing lens you must shoot a lot of portraits?”

I replied “yes I Shoot only Portraits”

Portrait of Ballet Dancer Roxi Henrici

 

 

     He replied , “ Someday.... I’d love to own that lens , but portraits are hard to shoot.”

     - I thought as I walking out the door  clutching  my new glass  to my chest I love creating Portraits and  for me Someday had begun.

I have throughout my career as a Photographer shot many  different Prime lenses. I’ve owned a 28mm, a 85mm a 135mm, but never have I owned a Pro Canon Lens. Nor would I ever have thought I could own a Canon Pro lens.

Portrait of Entrepreneur.

   Let’s start with where I came from to explain who I am as a Photographer.  I came from very meager beginnings don’t get me wrong I was by all means from a middle class family, But my family worked very hard  to achieve where they are now.

     My grandparents had been struggling Migrant workers from the City of Chiuauau Mexico.  And they came to America to better themselves . And, my parents  with this same ethic had instilled in us from a very young age that to get anywhere in life one must become educated and work hard. We had a good life growing up in the country , fishing and playing in the fields instead of working in them. All because my grandparents had a dream and changed their lives for my parents and then me.

Portrait of Male Model

 

      Who know where my love of Photography and capturing portraits comes from? I like to think of  it as starting early in myself as a way of learning about people. Studying their eyes and. Facial features, As my grandparents spoke no English and I no Spanish and growing up in a bilingual family.  We, my brother and sisters would sit at the dinner table with our families trying to comprehend conversations through the facial emotions. 

IMG_8009.JPG

Maybe my love for capturing portraits comes from the struggle of my grandparents. Maybe it’s because I know that everyone deserves the opportunity to tell their story.

And that the story can be seen through the eyes of the people I Create portraits for.

#thebeautyofyou

      In the eyes of the young Actor, the emotive eyes of a  dancer, and loving eyes of the bride for her groom, they all tell a story.  What story do your eyes tell?

Let me help you tell your story and capture it in time.  So that long after you and I have left this world , your story will live on.  I am a Portrait Photographer and my images tell your story. 

When was the last time you were photographed?

After the day had ended and all the guest had left we had time to create some portraits of the couple alone in the Chapel.  It was at a time we Photographers call the “magic light” hour.  The architecture of the Thorn-Crown was a perfect backdrop for this image. 

It was a Wonderful day with The scenic City of Eureka Springs being the backdrop for Couple Valerie and Justin’s wedding. 

Val and Justin will remember this day forever.
