I love my work..well..still love creating interesting image content that gets noticed.
This image is of two offshore jack up barges that will be home for the workers construction the new Hornsea One wind farm, when your job site is 120klm offshore traveling is not realy practical. The GMS Endeavour and Evolution will act as accommodation bases during the construction of the turbines and sub-stations.
The image was not commissioned, I saw this on my way home from another renewables shoot and apart from wanting a closer look thought there was potential for an image. The 'ship in the sky' certainly raised (groan!!) some interest in the local with many people enjoying the unseasonably warm day to visit the area to take in the spectical.
I shared the image on my LinkedIn network, within 5 days over 12,000 views were recorded and climbing.
Having made regular posts on Linked In to date this has had the most views, validation that a great image can drive viewers and traffic to your business, put that into context..my own network is just over 700 carefully people targeted people that I think would have in interest in my type and style of photography, and based upon stats for direct marketing we are way ahead of the curve for converting content into enquiries.
But that asides its's the images that count..it's the initial point that a potential customer or stakeholder will pause instead of moving onto the next post..tha pause is where you can connect.
