Content marketing for startups & events. Writing + photography + social = embedded journalist. My job is telling the story of your business & events, helping you get better return on investment for events and marketing.
I create content (online and print) for a variety of small business and large NGO / non-profit clients. I'm particularly familiar with the challenges of the highly competitive and small margin "local" food and restaurant industry, as well as industries with a history of public relations challenges (e.g. BC's coastal forest industry). I will give you creative and cost-effective ways to put your business or organization in front of your audience as a positive change-maker. I'm particularly interested in working with people who are, as I cal it "making shift happen."
Learn how to build awareness of your event prior to the date, how to engage participants at the event and how to create "virtual participants" who'll carry the message of your event far beyond your original market.
I've worked on media campaigns for a number of small businesses and NGOs. I can help you craft a lean social media / traditional media campaign. For an example of an economic / business development campaign for a regional tech / web sector organization, please see http://j.mp/PROFILEcvwp
I can't add to what Mark, Jerad, and Brandon have suggested. All give great advice. My suggestion would be to follow Jerad's second bit of advice and rent several lenses. In my practice there are some lenses I use all the time, and some I use very, very rarely. Those latter are the ones I rent because I need their specific qualities, but don't have the capital to own them outright.

Working with him over the years has been a delight and has helped me to wrap my brain around the complexities of urban and rural development issues, community relationships and partnership development, He is a gifted writer and thinker who encourages lateral thought in others and challenges them to see "another way".
Hans Peter Meyer has a long history with the forest sector and this familiarity combined with his extensive collection of stock photography make him a valuable resource for those working in forestry communications.
I worked with Hans on a couple of past book projects. Not only is his photographic images captivating and powerful; he is a great talent to work with and work for.
Hans brings a journalistic "eye" to his photography work. His photos have helped me tell a client's story to the press on numerous occasions. He's also fast and completely professional--which helps if you're on deadline.
Hans is a talented writer with an ability for distilling complex issues of land use development into an accessible and understandable prose. I have enjoyed his regular columns in the Comox Valley Word, the Real Estate Foundation Newsletter, among other publications, for years.
Hans Peter Meyer's caliber of photographs is exceptional. He is able to capture a certain magic in many of his photos - not always seen in the forestry industry. I have used his pieces in my communications projects with great results.
