As a photographer, you can stop a dancer, mid-step and preserve that moment forever. But in the video she created for Animoto’s WPPI booth, portrait photographer Sue Bryce suggests that photographers should “fall in love with the power of movement” and create videos for their business, combining their still images with video clips to illustrate the artistry that goes into making a still image come to life.
We believe that the power of video as a marketing tool for photographers is so important right now, and we wanted that idea to jump out at the photographers attending WPPI. So, along with wedding photographer Jerry Ghionis, Sue worked with us to create a materials for our WPPI booth. These two extraordinary photographers created a stunning series of images as well as beautiful slideshows and behind-the-scenes videos to capture the attention of photographers and demonstrate the power of video.
As video becomes more and more necessary as a marketing tool for photographers, Sue has found she’s ready to meet the challenge of creating portraits with movement, in addition to her still artistic portraits. In fact, the two work together to create one stunning vision using Animoto.
