For Creative Commercial Work/Magazine Shoots: My clients hire me when they need something more creative and artistic. You can see some of my work on my profile and website under my "People" and "Commercial" galleries. My work has appeared on billboards, magazine covers and print in a variety of places. I've also had my work used in campaigns that have been translated into 10 different languages and used all around the world. Recently, I've been working with a local university to help provide the creative direction with their rebranding and switch to Adidas uniforms. I'm also in my 10th season with the Atlanta Braves AAA team in Gwinnett as their team photographer and shoot game action, team photo, and the cover images for the game day magazine handed out in the stadium. My rates for magazines and creative work vary. I would propose that we talk more to discuss the specifics of your project to determine the scope of work, cost for the project, artistic vision, and the deliverables. For all types of work, contact me to answer specific questions. Thanks for considering me. Karl Moore Mooreshots LLC
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
My typical process in working with a new customer is to move from emails and texts to phone calls as soon as possible. This allows me to start establishing a rapport with the new client and helping to better understand their needs. If I'm working a corporate event, then I always show up at least an hour before the event to meet you, go over the timing of events, and get acclimated to my surroundings. For commercial and magazine work, I like to meet in person before the day of the shoot to establish a rapport with you and understand exactly what your vision is and then find the best way to bring it to reality.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have been taking pictures for over 20 years now. Through out this time, I've taken photography classes and worked as a photojournalist for 12 years covering news and sports for newspapers and magazines. I've also been the team photographer for the Atlanta Braves AAA club here in Gwinnett for the past 8 seasons. My quest for learning has never stopped and I'm always trying to learn new things every day.
