For over a year now we’ve been working on developing a fresh component to our photography business that integrates our passion for marketing, branding, and helping other businesses and nonprofits take their companies to the next level. We are here to photograph the big stuff in your life – the “once-in-a-lifetime” aspects like weddings, and high school graduation, but sometimes really big stuff includes your business. Many small business owners put as much heart and soul into their companies as into bringing up their children. As small business owners ourselves, we get that our livelihood is one of the most important attributes of our lives, and one of the biggest contributing factors to happiness. As photographers, we also get that visual content is a necessity for success. A recent study by Forrester Research found that Instagram users were 58 times more likely to like, comment, or share a brand’s post than Facebook users and 120 times more likely than Twitter users. What this all means – photos rule!
So what about all those entrepreneurs who aren’t photographers? Those who just don’t have the time to create the visual content necessary to develop their brand? And what about those who don’t know how to make a logo let alone develop a brand? The businesses that desperately need a website, but have no idea where to even start? Or even the nonprofits and businesses seeking to crowdfund who need their minuscule budget to make a big impact? This is the people we want to help!!
We have a passion for helping entrepreneurs build a profitable brand and visual content, so we’ve taken that passion and turned it into a means to support and propel businesses to that next level!
If you are a entrepreneur who is yearning to validate your worth in the marketplace through visual content but doesn’t know where to begin – don’t panic. We’d like to introduce you to TenSixteen Collaborative (or as we like to call it – TenSixteen Co.)
A collaboration is the process where two or more people or organizations work together to realize shared goals and objectives by sharing knowledge, learning and building, and pursuing an endeavor that is creative in nature.
— Webster’s Dictionary
While this division of TenSixteen Photography seems new, it’s something that has been slowly being developed for a few years! We’ve often found ourselves working with other businesses, and walking away from the experiences feeling so energized and inspired. Helping others is our priority and one of the main reasons we started our nonprofit, but what we’ve come to realize is that we don’t have to limit ourselves to only lifting up others in the nonprofit sector!! Helping others succeed gives us our own definition of success, and we can’t wait to help you!
So hey, if you are a business owner of any kind wanting help with the visual content of your business check out our new site and let’s chat about what we can do to help!!
