Starting a business is hard. There are so many things to consider, from finding the right product or service to building the right team and marketing your business. And for visual creatives, there’s an added layer of complexity: finding the right people and resources to bring your vision to life. In the early stages of our respective journeys, we often pondered the crucial question: “Where do I begin?” and despite finding our footing along the way, we’ve frequently looked back and wished we had more answers from the start. Further we could have come, and how much easier the path would have been if we had the necessary tools and connections from the start.
The Photo Takeover solves this problem and serves as a centralized hub where visual creatives can seamlessly access the tools and connections they need to bring their brand and creative visions to life. We understand the complexities of the visual industry and the frustrations that arise from searching for the missing pieces. We create opportunities and events to connect our network of professional photographers, muas, models, videographers, stylists, designers, studios and more; thus, freeing them to focus on what they do best: developing exceptional content.
We believe that by breaking down barriers and simplifying the process, we can empower visual creatives to achieve their full potential. We’re dedicated to nurturing a supportive community where creatives can collaborate and share knowledge.
The visual industry is constantly evolving, and the challenges that creatives face are constantly changing. But we believe that by working together, we can equip our community with the tools to prepare for these challenges.
Some of the benefits of The Photo Takeover are:
- Access to a diverse network of professionals and live industry-leading instruction
- Increased brand awareness and quality as well as earning and sponsorship potential
- Sharpen your skills and talents to further build out a striking body of work
- And most importantly – Time
The Photo Takeover aims to eliminate the limitations of access and open doors to opportunities for growth and expansion. Does anyone remember a time when you needed to fax something? Scan? Copy? Print? Well if you do or don’t, there was a time when you had to have a separate device for all of these things. It was a cumbersome, time-consuming, and expensive process. But then came the blessing of “all-in-one” printers, capable of handling all these tasks in a single place.
The Photo Takeover is your creative all-in-one printer. Unlike the typical photo walk event, you can consider us your personal shopper, placing everything you need right at your fingertips and streamlining the entire process. With years of experience in the industry, we have established valuable connections with these very creatives. The Photo Takeover consolidates these crucial elements under one roof, creating a space for networking, developing your creative portfolio, and exploring business opportunities.
Just like manufacturers have ambassador programs and sponsorships for those who best represent their brands, we are here to elevate your personal brand to a never before seen level of exceptional quality and get your work to a level that can be recognized by prominent names/brands within the industry.
