As much as I'd love to say that it was my 20th, I can at least celebrate vicariously through the youth of my business!
 
Perhaps it's the sense of renewal from taking this leap 20 years ago, but seriously, these eyes are great for another 30 years.
 
We're celebrating this anniversary with a purge of our archives. (Ten years of the 20)
 
I'm in optimal health, but space is getting a tad tight.
 
My creativity has not only been reignited, but after seeing 70% of our 2015 business to be commercial, I knew it was time for a more business-like name for my growing B2B clientele.

My first commercial studio location - grand opening flyer. RIP James Allen - you were my hero at 5yrs AND at 38 years!

Though commercial photography was the primary service I had orginally intended, it took me 20 years to finally bust out in the form of PhotoMediaProductions.com.
 
Now only four mos. old, it has already gained recognition as a destination for quality Pitch Videos and commercial photography. My writing gets put to great use by drafting succinct scripts, storyboards and directions for my video editors.
 
Headshots continue to be our staple offering. Just read the online reviews, and you'll see that there are no "DMV was here" experiences. Instead I get to mastermind with my clients, coach them on styling, expression and share my LinkedIn knowledge with them on projecting the right image. (that's a subtle invitation to connect with me, if we haven't already)
 
Add to that, my prior career as a systems-junkie retail manager have been getting noticed as well. I'll be presenting at my third Chamber of Commerce presentation next week, and it has increased the traffic on my personal project and sharing site, Gratitudaholic.com. (because who can remember how to spell "BrianGeraths.com" right?)
 
Be sure to check out the class info, high school senior specials, and if you even suspect that someone you know is (or would like to be) one of our clients, be sure to forward this onto them.
 
 
THANK YOU for keeping me in my creative Genius zone for the past 20 years, and CHEERS to the next couple of decades. I absolutely THRIVE at creating money-generating images for you and your craft!
