Sustainable Prospects- Mission Statement

In this week’s presentations you have learned a little bit about the importance of running your business properly to be successful. For this week’s activity therefore, I want you to think about the following three areas in relation to your own practice:

  • A Mission Statement

  • The Product

  • The Market

You will have thought about these things previously in the course but this is an opportunity to consider them from a more commercial angle.

Write 150 words for each of these points. You will informally present the outcome in this week's webinar. Feel free to post your thoughts below and discuss amongst the group.


Artist statement

A fine art photograph should be visually stunning, not only technically but with the ability to drag emotion from you by connecting. The same way music makes you want to cry or dance. That is what I strive for in every image I take, and then create. I say create as my images only just begin in the camera. My images are created by me with textures and layers of changes and corrections that I felt within my emotions when I plan my sessions. My images are unique, and is not just my camera at work taking a photograph.

I strive to provide a personalised service and unique photography experience that a family will treasure as an heirloom. Seeing a product in a unique way that references art and history. Providing high quality imagery, with an elegant interpretation I create timeless images bringing a touch of the past back to life.

The Product

The product is also created by me. That can come in various forms. I provide a service whereby we create unique sessions of fine art with the aim to have top end artwork on your wall, by framed prints or framed canvas prints with a look of authenticity good enough to have in a gallery or fine art prints in a beautiful album. Some work is available on a modern USB. Quality printing enables my end results to meet the quality required to the image justice using fine art paper to bring out the textures. I can also offer training to beginner photographers or families wanting to take better family snaps.

The Market

Creative people who like a little something different.

High end clients who want unique and bespoke artwork on their wall. Families who love nothing more than capturing the moment in a bespoke way.

Museums and galleries who want to display art of historic value. Publishers who would want a book of fine art prints with historical themes.

I also use social media to market and promote services offered. Using the internet and my website to host online galleries.

So that was my take on it. However in the webinar with some of my fellow students and Krishna. I now believe it is too personal.
