Join Becky Craven as she takes you from confused, to confident, with your business marketing photography. Part of Women in Business

This event is part of BIPC Devon’s Women in Business Course.

We know that a picture tells a thousand words, and we also know that when people book a trip away or a day out, the first place they look is online, so get your place snapped up then let’s look at creating some top photographs and videos with your smartphone! You might not know where to start with creating videos or maybe going live on your Facebook page; we will guide you through this process so you come away feeling confident in developing your visual marketing strategy.

Firstly, Becky will teach you how to create a collection of photographs to use on a day to day basis in your digital marketing activity. She will help you to:

  • Visually stand out online.
  • Create your photography narrative.
  • Discuss planning your photography
  • Set up techniques, styling, locations and lighting
  • Take a better photograph using just your smart phone.

We will then look at creating video using your smartphone, editing it and broadcasting your video online. Becky will take you step by step through an interactive workshop, and by the end of it, you will have a piece of video ready to use on YouTube.

We will explore social media platforms that work well for video and photography, we will discuss the use of SEO, keywords and sizing which will amplify your overall marketing offer.
