The Best Kombucha by Health-Ade
I honestly haven't found the best way to showcase my blog/photography/Instagram collaborations yet, aside from blog posts under my portfolio section. A lot of bloggers have a photography gallery or similarly blog posts with photos from projects they have worked on.
I have thought a lot about it, likely too much, and I still haven't decided what I want my blog/photography/side hustle to be. I guess if I lived in my ideal world I would like my blog to support my hobbies meaning companies I already support or products I already love pay me to continue to live my life in their products.
I would love to get big enough one day for Kia and/or some sort of travel company/magazine/hotel to sponsor an adventure! But until then I have to keep putting in the work and getting better. I recently worked with a company Health-Ade to promote their kombucha. I love their product, my favorite flavor being "Pink Lady Apple", and will continue to support their company after my collaboration. So without further ado here are some photos I took. I've been focusing more on content creation vs just a pretty picture. Such as taking the product with you on a hike or road trip, trying to show people living life to the fullest and incorporating these products into their lives.
I want people to look at my photos and think "I wish I had that life/product", "I wish I was there", and "I could see this being me" as a way to practically showcase products. I've found telling a story far more rewarding than simply taking a picture. It's a relatively new development, although I knew it before I was far too timid to incorporate myself/friends in the story.
BUT I have decided the only way to succeed is to push myself, even if that means shamelessly taking my tripod/wireless remote with me every where! The biggest frustration I have had lately has been the time constraints. A few companies have given me a week to take photos for them. Right now Montana is snowy. Some days it is cloudy and I cannot take a good picture.
I have a few products, including my Rowdy Bars, that I cannot wait to photograph in the summer. That being said the quick turnarounds are hard so I am excited to start taking pictures of products I support year round! :)
