One Day Tampa Bay: I Got the Cover!

Back in September I participated in a community-wide photography project called “One Day Tampa Bay (ODTB).” Hosted by the Morean Arts Center, ODTB brought in more than 50 local photographers to document a full 24-hour day around the bay. Each photographer submitted their top 8 photos to be juried for a number of different showcase opportunities.

On the day the event took place, I was on my out of town for soccer. I only had about 45 minutes to shoot, and it was during the pre-sunrise/dawn time frame. With that in mind, I decided to document “The Calm Before the Storm” at one of my all-time favorite spots, Central Coffee Shoppe. After that, I headed to Northshore Park in hopes of an epic sunrise.

Lucky me, I was ecstatic to have an image from the coffee shop portion chosen for the juried exhibition during the Morean Arts Center’s holiday show. (please pardon my awkwardness as I am used to being behind the lens) ūüėÄ

And more recently, one of my submissions from the sunrise was selected to be the cover for the ODTB coffee table book!

Update: January & February Content

G’day! It has been quite a few weeks since my last update, because things have gotten pretty busy around H2H Social HQ. Here’s an update on what I’ve been up to.

  • First off, I have been shooting more and more photography with the brands I’m working with. Below are some behind-the-scenes shots from Number 9 Salon, plus some fresh head-shots to help spruce up Thank You Mama’s website.
  • Here are some videos I made throughout January and February, including the world renowned Florida Heat Woodfire at the Morean Center for Clay, as well as new Number 9 Salon content, and a couple website videos for Thank You Mama; all located in downtown St. Petersburg.

  • I was also excited to do a few¬†more graphic designs for social sharing. Check them out.

 

  • Lastly, after having a brainstorm with Number 9 Salon’s CEO, we wanted to create a fresh vibe on Instagram that would be more consistent with¬†appearance. So, I created three forms (I call them “pillars”) of content: 1) black and white imagery/video 2) before and after polaroids 3) just great hair.

Here’s a screenshot of the final product, but you can also check out the Number 9 Salon Instagram, to see what it looked like before.

December: A Busy One

In my most busy month yet, I was able to create a slew of video posts for my collaborators. There are quite a few, so I will keep the descriptions short! Enjoy:

I just finished my first Q as a small business owner (H2H Social), and with the new year celebration, I wanted to highlight what I’ve been up to!

Things have started to rev up with the Morean Arts Center and the Chihuly Collection in St. Petersburg, Florida. Here is a demo from the Morean Center for Clay, and one from the Morean Glass Studio & Hot Shop!

Number 9 Salon was a lot of fun in December; between the glitter hair and champagne toast for New Year’s, I had a blast! Here are most of the video posts I created for them during December.

New to the H2H Social list of collaborators, Thank You Mama wanted to do a quick social media video to help with engagement after the holidays. Thank You Mama is a holistic, alternative medicine practice in St. Petersburg, Florida.

That’s A Wrap, November!

I’m a little bit later into the month of December than I’d like to be when posting this; however…it’s the moooost wonderful tiiiime, of the year! In¬†Florida, this time of year is considered to be the peak of “season” for most small businesses, which also means, it’s “season” for me!

Let’s dive right in to a recap of November’s highlights!

I’ve been working on a little bit more graphic design than usual, and created these holiday assets for USF Alumni to send out via email blast, and through social media.

I recently teamed up with the Morean Arts Center/Chihuly Collection to ramp up their social media game. There is a lot more to come, but here we’ve got the #MannequinChallenge for each brand, as well as some photos to promote the gallery store.

It was another super fun month with Number 9 Salon! I seriously love being part of their tribe. Below you’ll see our fresh to death, #MannequinChallenge, plus two teasers from our “9 Days of Christmas” giveaway. Check out the whole campaign through December 9th,¬†on the Number 9 Salon Facebook page.¬†

Last but definitely not least, I was able to work with transplanted artist, Michael Vahl. Vahl relocated to St. Petersburg from Los Angeles. A few months back, I shared a photo of his mural work on Instagram because I loved it so much. From there, we got to talking (never having met in person), and we ended up crushing this timelapse video of his latest project, “We The People.” Enjoy.

More Videos!

And, the projects keep on rollin’! Take a look at some of the¬†most recent clips¬†I’ve created:

A few months back, I got involved with “Best of the Bay” Instagram nominee, DTSPeats. They started on Instagram, but just created a Facebook page to reach more people. So, I created a Facebook Video Ad, which yielded almost 100 quality followers, for less than $20; this totally proves that visuals are everything!

Working with the same brand, who wanted to grow their following, I pitched the idea to do an “At Home” segment, featuring products from local, DTSP grocers. The idea was to expand their base of advertisers from just restaurants and bars, to any type of food/drink vendor in the area. For the first one, I made pizza for a week!

Last, but not least, here’s another summer “hair how-to” for a local salon.
