Are Your Photos Hurting or Helping Your Business

08/08/2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

We All Use Photography, But Is It the RIGHT Photography?

The Wrong Photos Can Actually Turn Clients Away! Find Out How You Can Get Better Results.

When: Thursday, August 08, 6:30 to 9 PM
Where: The Oliver Chamblee (Previously Olmsted)
5193 Peachtree Blvd, Chamblee, GA 30341


Think about all the places you use photography. Print campaigns, banner ads, web pages, catalogs…

But wait, that isn’t all. Don’t forget SELF promotion! You probably use your head shot on your Twitter feed, your Instagram, your LinkedIn profile…

Now be honest—does that head shot look like it was taken at the DMV?

The Photos You Use Send Subconscious Messages to Clients

What messages are your photos sending to clients? “I’m a professional. Hire me!” or “I’d rather be on vacation”?

With the right photos, you can attract new customers and inspire people to connect. Better photos can give you a competitive edge.

Don’t Miss Our Next Meeting of the Freelance Forum


Professional photographer Maryann Davidson will show us the many, many ways people take horrible photos (it’s a long, funny list!). And of course, she’ll also show us how to improve.


Maryann’s bucket list is currently 7 pages long, and growing. She has walked through an operating car wash (be sure to ask why). Her ringtone is the theme from “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.” She was born the oldest but raised the youngest. The first photo she sold was to a newspaper, in 1992. Her first camera was a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye, which she still has.

(in the same 
building as the Leasing Office).

the OLIVER CHAMBLEE APARTMENTS (www.theoliverchamblee.com)


Just north of Brookhaven and south of the Perimeter, The Oliver Chamblee (previously Olmsted Chamblee) is a creative living space and new Freelance Forum Sponsor. You’ll love its comfy furniture and casual vibe. It also features plenty of meeting space, free parking, and is within walking distance of the Chamblee MARTA station.

Should be a great event. Hope to see you there!

The Oliver Chamblee is on Peachtree just north of Clairmont Road, on Chamblee Tucker, in the heart  of Chamblee (follow the signs to the Leasing Office).

Free for members. Guests pay $15. Dress: Blue jeans rule. Business attire is okay if you just came from a big meeting with a corporate client. But otherwise, relax.

At the Freelance Forum, it's all Business Casual – until we get down to business.

No atmospheric pressure here! We network and socialize over sandwiches, spreads or pizza, catch up with new and old friends and introduce ourselves to first-time or frequent guests. Then we settle in for the night’s program and its follow-up Q&A.

Our programs always focus on running a creative business more successfully, with topics that address issues like fees, taxes, law, marketing, selling, interpersonal skills, business organization, technology and more. All to help you work smarter, faster, more efficiently and more profitably. So whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been at this for a while, you get no-fluff information tailored to your needs.

So join us for a meeting. Bring your questions. Hear that hot tip or horror story. And of course, share your own!
