Admissions Marketing Photography

I have a question for readers.. Hopefully we'll get some decent feedback on this one... Nowadays, most everyone is looking for NATURAL images in most marketing publications... Today's image is completely natural, but it was taken with a wide angle lens, therefore obviously had some "in your face" contact. Do you think prospective students would look at this as a fake or posed image? Any feedback is greatly appreciated.... To see more of our admissions marketing photography goto FJ GAYLOR Photography

Ready for the Busy Season

Well, hope everyone enjoyed their weekend... Ours was soggy in the Northeast, hope others fared better... We were at the University of New Haven the last couple days documenting the class of 2010 Move in Day... We don't typically do this type of thing, but I have to tell you, I had a GREAT time, there was a ton of emotion, on both kids and students... We have a couple more one day shoots this week, a nice long labor day weekend (needed desperately) and then we hit the road for basically the next ten weeks.. We are almost completely booked with the exception of a few days.. We start in Manhattan and then to NJ, IA, WI, MI, MA, CT, TX for a while and then back North.. We can't wait... it's going to by sooo fast.. by the time we know it, it will be Christmas break (argggh)... Anyway here is one of a group of "newbies" at UNH having a great time at a first year, first day event... To see our entire online gallery goto: FJ GAYLOR Photography... Also if you get a chance check out Sam Jackson's wonderful blog on his college admissions process...

Admissions Photography

After getting swept this weekend by the Yankees, it is safe to say that they will not be updating the sign you see on the wall of the Monmouth University Radio Station any time soon... To see our entire online portfolio of admissions and viewbook photography goto FJ GAYLOR Photography

Great Blog on electronic marketing in higher education

Was trolling the net late last week and found a great blog, Erelevant ... It's as Morgan puts it an "off-the-cuff blog about electronic marketing and working within higher education. Articles will focus on marketing and branding through websites and email as well as design and development issues. The theme (if there is one) is the concept of relevance and authenticity—the challenge of always returning to your market for inspiration and direction."

Great Blog on admissions process From a Student

Just wanted to pass on a link to a great blog, the Sam Jackson College Experience This is a first hand account of how a "rising senior" is facing this whirlwind of a college search process.. He has some great accounts and great links to wonderful information that I think all admissions professionals will enjoy..
