As 2012 comes to an end, we here at Newspin Photo are reflecting back on our year. We have to say - it 's been an incredible one!!
Many great opportunities came our way that helped us grow as a business, and grow creatively as well. We never know what will happen next! It's a blast to have a career that consistently brings exciting moments into our lives and keeps us on our toes.
Newspin Photo kicked off 2012 with a commitment to maintain a connection with our facebook followers. We're pleased to say that we increased our page likes in 2012 by 500+!! And we did it organically, without purchasing ANY facebook advertising.
Numbers have also increased at the heart of the business; Red added 2 important team members - his wife Rachel now assists with contacting, booking, shooting, and editing, and Matt Guile assists with video production, shooting, and promoting. Integrating these creative minds has added inspiration and structure to Newspin Photo this year, and we're looking to add more members to our team in 2013!
Other highlights from the year include: shooting a gorgeous wedding in Cancun; filming a Home Depot video for Andrew Lauren Surfaces in LA; meeting fun families, sweet couples, and sassy ladies; capturing beautiful ballerina shots in the forest; doing packed, high-energy club photography; designing the Painted Plate's website; shooting music videos for artists including XP, Free Whiskey, & Puget; receiving attention from newspapers & magazines; documenting the NW portion of Macklemore's "The Heist" tour; and there's still so much more that could be said! But the biggest highlight of all this year has been the abundant support we've earned from members of the Olympia community.
2012 has been really awesome.
Can't wait to see what's ahead for Newspin Photo in 2013!
