January '16: New Chio Photography!

Welcome to my new website!

How do you like it?

I really wanted to make my website prettier and easier for those who would like to spend some time looking at my work and reading my blog. I hope I managed to do it. To me it's like I just bought a beautiful blank notebook from Paperchase and a new pen, I can't wait to share with everyone what I create.

After the Christmas holidays, I decided to book some time off during January to do most of my admin and also to renew my website, updating my work and blog. I also have news about my latest work, and I am very excited to share it with you!

Working for Audible.

A few months ago now, I was contacted to take some portraits of Julian Rhind-Tutt, who was recording an audio book for Audible, a subsidiary of Amazon.

Following this job I was also asked to photograph Burt Reynolds and Stephen Fry (yes... Burt Reynolds!). I'm a big fan of classic Hollywood, so I'm gutted that I wasn't born early enough to have the opportunity to photograph Audrey Hepburn, Frank Sinatra or Elvis Presley. Burt Reynolds is the closest I will be to any of these people. He mentioned playing Poker with two from that list, guess who? I can't picture Audrey playing cards! Can you?

I really feel appreciated and valued by the team at Audible, it is really a pleasure to work surrounded by wonderful professionals. The good news is that it looks like I will be doing it more often than not! I have already covered another project, but I can't tell you about this one yet. Not until they launch the book.

New Instagram Image Pack.

Now, if you received my newsletter at the beginning of the year, you might know already about my soon to be launched Instagram Image Pack. I can give you a little bit more of information, not much, just a little.

The Instagram Image Pack is a set of professional images to cover all of your business' Instagram posts. The pack consists of an image per day and you will be able to pick if you need the pack for one, two or three months or for a whole year. Depending on the length each pack will have different prices.






The Instagram Image Pack consists of various stages:

-Initial consultation to discuss if the pack is the right thing for your business and details of how my photography could help your business grow on Instagram.

-Crafting a plan. In this stage I will allocate the time necessary to photograph your images and will create a mood board based in your product/business according to your brand and standards. I will advise you regarding location and style.

-Executing the shoot. The best part! Let's take some photos!

-The last but most exciting part is the delivery of the images. All images will be edited to high standards and ready to go on Instagram, no need for you to do anything apart from writing a caption, and that's if you want one!

If you are interested in this project, just get in touch smile@chiophotography.com. I will be more than happy to chat and develop a bespoke plan for you.

I'll be travelling for most of February, so expect some good shots from Amsterdam and Madrid on my own Instagram account and a full post about it next month, I'm considering starting a video diary, keep an eye on my social profiles for an update about it!

This doesn't have to be all! If you have a project on hand that could do with some good photography, get in touch! I'd love to hear about it.
