Commercial shoot for the O’Connor Company

This post is a bit late. By about, oh…. a year.

You know when you get asked to do something absolutely awesome and you’re so excited about it? You run off to do it with tons of energy and enthusiasm, do your best, deliver and then… life gets in the way both for you and your client and you find yourself sending an email asking “Whatever happened with…?”

That’s what happened here with a shoot I did in January of last year for the O’Connor Company , an HVAC company in Kansas City. My sister-in-law is the Marketing Director extraordinaire over there and she was about to embark upon am exciting, celebrity-endorsed, multi-media marketing and advertising campaign – tv commercials, radio commercials and billboards. She needed a photographer to capture the process as well as to take some portraits of their celebrity, soccer star Matt Besler of the Sporting Kansas City pro soccer team, for the print and online campaigns. She asked me and said she would fly me out to make it all happen.

Unfortunately I said no.

HA! Are you kidding me? Even minus 10 degree KC weather wasn’t going to deter me from this one.

I was on set at a local model home for the shooting of the tv commercials, which was a ton of fun to watch in progress. After the tv spots were shot, I did some stills with Matt who is a sweetheart. (He’s not so bad on the eyes, either.)

I just got these images today showing how some of my images were used. So awesome! Billboards and magazine ads and direct mail campaigns.

Seriously, I could get used to this. So, for sure, if your company is working on a big marketing campaign and needs some shots (with famous people or regular employees) to help convey your message, I’d love the opportunity to pitch my ideas for the project. Just shoot me an email michelle@mbymphotos.com

Big thanks to the other Mrs. McDaid for this opportunity!
