Bio

My passion for Photography (and art in general) extend all the way back to my upbringing. I remember my first time ever using a professional camera in high school...since then I knew for sure I wanted to shoot and I've been doing just that!

About Passionate Artist Designs & Photography

Services include:

- Photography
- Photo Retouching
- Custom Logo Creations
- Postcards
- Business Cards
- Branding & Brand Identity

(Specialties: comp cards, business cards, modeling portfolios, head-shots, lifestyle shoots, birthday & special occasion invitations)

What clients mostly love about my work is that it is original, out of the box and has a great deal of character. I also provide a brief portfolio, depending on the type of work requested of previous projects to solidify the service and make sure that I can please each client.

I am always looking to work with individuals that want artwork and not just to be photographed but would like to be apart of something bigger than that.

When it comes to graphic design & web design, I appreciate clients that know what they want and if they don't are open to various different options. Art itself is a plethora of things and people that appreciate and understand this are very good clients in my opinion.

    Ovie is the most creative and knowledgeable designer I've ever encountered. She's very diligent and patient. I had so many ideas and I didn't know how to formulate them into a design perspective and Ovie was very helpful. She created a product that I absolutely adore. She developed a website, logo and business card for me. I couldn't have dreamed of going to a better designer to get this accomplished. I've been telling everyone about her. When someone's work is stellar and exceeds the needs of their client, the world needs to know. Ovie is amazing, to say the least!

Question and answer

Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.

A. Three of the most recent jobs completed were 2 logo designs and photo-shoot. For one of the logo designs I provided a church with 6 options to choose from that allowed them to decide what kind of logo they were looking for and how they wanted it to appear. The 2nd logo design was also for a church, they were looking for something a tad different but actually had a set design in mind. I provided that design 2 traditional ways and then provided 4 more designs with non-traditional designs. This allowed for them to see their idea transformed into something new that would draw in a larger audience and make them stand out amongst others in their field. The 3rd job completed was a graduation photoshoot, in order to really excel with this project I chose to make sure that none of the photos were similar to the standard graduation photos and instead reflected the personality of the graduate. I also offered the client to have one of their friends be in a few of their photos and show them interacting as friends. This made the client extremely happy and also allowed them to spend time with a friend that they didn't normally see very often.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. I enjoy taking photographs and providing print work that it is out of the ordinary. I have also yet to meet a customer who hasn't been completely thrilled to work with me because I offer new ways to present their products.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. If I were a customer I'd wish to know what the standard for art projects are. This is very important to know when one is going to do business with a freelance designer. Also I'm actually trained in my area via my first college degree and it helps a great deal. Always be sure to ask questions and make them as detailed as possible.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. Questions a consumer should ask to hire the right service professional would fall along the lines of: What kind of work have you done before? What are your interests? How does your work reflect you? How would making this connection benefit you and that person?

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. My work stands out because I utilize designs or photographic methods that make the subject stand out. It's important to make sure there is a focal point and that there is a story being told.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. I love everything about it. I love art and I love the idea of constantly being able to create and feed off of the world around me.

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. What do you think my color scheme should be? My response is usually: What is your target audience, who are you reaching out to? What kind of business do you have? What does your business stand for? All of these need to be answered in order to guide them to colors that will compliment their company brand and set them apart. A well thought out brand is one that has meaning behind it and its purpose is more than just to profit it's business owner and their employees.

Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?

A. Honestly, this isn't the easiest business and people don't realize how difficult it is to solidify payments or anything of that nature. I've encountered very different kinds of people and noticed that some will applaud your work but downgrade you by saying you should charge less without knowing all that you do and others will pay for what you do and love praise your work continuously. I just think people should remember there are extreme positives and negatives and it takes thick skin to be in this kind of business.
