Chadasha Visual Presentation

Chadasha Visual PresentationA quick update on some of the goings-on at the Chadasha Foundation:

Chadasha’s Feature Presentation
Chris Keylon, Chadasha’s Executive Director, and I were able to find time in our hectic schedules to share lunch and discuss some of the issues we need to tackle regarding the media “division” of Chadasha.

Aside from the awesome new website we have planned, we identified that over the past year, we’d created many versions of a similar presentation for different audiences. Chris had an opportunity to present the mission of Chadasha to a church in Alabama the next weekend, and we didn’t want to fall into the repetitive trap of new presentations for each opportunity.

After discussing some of the main details and information that really define Chadasha and the needs of our presentations, we settled on a new strategy. Read more

Creative Business Cards That Stand Out
Creative Business Cards That Stand Out

This business card spread only contains two unique business cards. The variety of display options and interactivity are tremendous, and there are even more than shown above. They’re quite the conversation-starter…which comes in handy with establishing new relationships.

Everyone wants to be unique, but most people simply aren’t.

For businesses, the margin for standing out from the crowd can often be extremely thin. Being unique isn’t enough: It’s just as vital that you are able to communicate to your potential client that you are unique as it is to be different.

Success can hinge on something as small as your business card. Google “creative business cards,” and you’ll find a plethora of thorough lists and examples of unique business cards. So how do you stand out from the competition? Read more

One of the amazing benefits of working with so many wonderful clients is simply getting to know you and your incredible stories.

The Community
This happens all the time, and my business—whether I’m doing photography, video production, or digital design—is based on telling stories…so I love hearing my clients’ stories and I want to create a platform to share them. A huge project I’ll be incorporating into the entire Moser Visuals Network in the future is developing a community with so many incredible features for all of you. I’ll share more information about this after the new year, but it is exciting news and I can’t wait to unveil it!

Part of the new community is this idea of sharing incredible client stories. For now, I’ll call each one a Community Featured Story. The first one features the incredible story of the Roberts family. If you want me to tell your story, consider becoming a client of any one of the Moser Visuals Network companies: Moser Visuals, Knoxville Portraits, or Knox Wedding Photo + Video!

*Editor’s Note: The original graphic published with this article referenced the Roberts family as being from Alabama, not Mississippi, as the updated and correct graphic now reflects.

The Roberts family claims they are just an ordinary family of four from Southern Mississippi, but after reading their story, you might claim otherwise. Their family includes Greg and Michelle (the parents), Dustin and Ashton (the two natural-born kids), and Isaac (their adopted Haitian son). I asked Michelle to tell their story, and these are her words: Read more

Smoky Mountain Gift Show - Knoxville Portraits

Smoky Mountain Gift Show - Knoxville PortraitsI’m hanging out at the Moser Visuals booth at Knoxville Fashion Week during a down period of the day, so I walk across the aisle and start a conversation with Scott Murphy, the husband of one of the custom children’s clothing designers (Heidi Murphy, Keoni Fashions) who is manning the booth while she’s preparing for her runway show.

We talked about a variety of things, including photography, but nothing really in particular. He was a great guy and it was nice to simply pass some of the time with good conversation. The last runway show ends (I was shooting it) and I returned from my booth to begin tearing it down. Unfortunately, their booth was already torn down and they had already left—and I wasn’t able to even say goodbye.

About a month ago, I got a phone call from an unknown number, and it just so happened to be Scott. He was calling to let me know about an opportunity to photograph for Urban Expositions at their huge expo in Gatlinburg, Tenn.: The Smoky Mountain Gift Show. Many thanks to him for referring me to the gig, and it just goes to show you that it’s really important to be genuine and friendly with everyone! You can always pay it forward to that someone later when they aren’t expecting it. Read more

Chadasha Website Homepage Design
Chadasha Website Homepage Design

Here’s a sneak preview of the new Chadasha website homepage design.

If you’ve been following me for any amount of time, you’ve probably heard me mention the Chadasha Foundation and all the amazing things they are doing in Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

There is quite a lot going on at Chadasha lately, between preparing to open our Jimani Hospital, to the same with our Orphanage Retreat Center, some illnesses, mission trips, cancelled meetings with Haiti’s President Martelly, and many more moving parts.

The busy schedule hasn’t been limited to the projects and operations on Hispaniola, either. I’ve been working heavily on designing and developing a new website for Chadasha among some other Chadasha projects as well. The current site is a bit vanilla and really doesn’t serve our needs as a growing international non-profit anymore. It can’t support a lot of necessary functionality and it looks pretty simple too.

So, I’ve been spearheading a brand new site, designed and planned from the ground up to serve our needs and add some fantastic new features for the entire Chadasha Community. The new site is going to be Read more

Moser Visuals Digital Mag Holiday

Moser Visuals Digital Mag Holiday

Happy November to all of you lovely people! It’s getting chilly and the time has now fallen back . . . all signs we are getting close to my favorite holidays: Thanksgiving and Christmas!

Some of you may choose to celebrate differently than me, whether you’re in another country and don’t recognize America’s Thanksgiving or of a different set of beliefs and Christmas isn’t on your calendar. Even if we don’t celebrate the same things, odds are you’ll be getting together with family and friends many times in the next two months and taking lots of pictures. As such, I wanted to put together a quick tips guide to getting great photos at your holiday events, because, let’s face it . . . I can’t be at all of your parties! 🙂

Below the great tips are some great ideas for your holiday portraits and how I can help capture them!
