This week, I’m celebrating a major milestone – a whole decade of running my business!

My Photography PR Agency is ten!

For the past ten years, as an independent PR consultant, I’ve supported independent small businesses with PR and marketing. I niched down in 2015 to exclusively working with professional photographers.

Inspiring PR-Savvy Photographers

I’m on a mission to support independent professional photographers and help them stand out, get noticed, and connect with their dream clients. I do this by securing high-visibility PR and creating compelling marketing content.

I kick-started my journey as an independent PR consultant back in 2013. By then, I had 10 years of experience in various PR and marketing roles. Since, I’ve supported many incredible photographers, helping them to showcase their talents and get the recognition they deserve.

A HUGE thank you must go to all my current and past photography clients for their role in my 10-year business journey – it’s been a pleasure to work with you all!

Twenty years of PR experience

I’ve gotten to know the photography industry well, and of course, have a PR and marketing background; a total of 20 years of experience all in.

In that time, I’ve developed a signature method that incorporates SEO copywriting, blog writing, and media publicity. I help boost my clients’ website visibility and create copy and content that helps them to secure higher rankings in Google.

They also get featured in the media. My clients have been in national and international news and magazine publications such as BBC News, The Daily Telegraph, The Sun, Woman & Home and Happiful, as well as photography publications including Black & White Photography, Digital Photographer, Photography Monthly, and Professional Photo Magazine. Too many more to mention here!

Photographers can work with me on either a ‘done for you’ basis or in my new group programme, The Photographer’s Visibility Blueprint™ (Registrations are open at the time of writing – get in touch for all the details and the Early Bird offer). I also offer ad hoc PR and content marketing consulting.

Supporting an international community of photographers

I set up the ‘PR Savvy Photographers Facebook group around six years ago.

In there, now, are over 1100 professional photographers from all around the world! I share PR, content marketing, and SEO tips, all to equip photographers with the strategies, tools and mindset that they need to stand out.

Championing photographers is the work I love to do!

When I started my business I was looking for a flexible way to balance work and life as a new parent. Ten years down the road, I’m still loving every minute of being self-employed and working with so many incredible photographers!
