Finding your signature style w/ Christina McNeill

Are you doing it because you are copying somebody and copying a trend or are you doing it because you authentically believe it is storytelling? These are the types of questions that led today's guest, Christina McNeill, to discover who she truly was as an artist. On today's episode, Christina shares her view on how to be unapologetically yourself in this industry. She discusses the importance of having your own signature style and allowing the client to fully trust you and your process. If someone were to see your work without your name on it would they be able to tell it is you? It's time to own your artistry because after all what people really want is for you to simply be you!SESH by Christina McNeill - https://www.christinamcneill.com/seshLEVEL UP resources:- Luxury Client Communication Guide- https://thelevelupco.com/luxury-client-communication-guide- Download your free Planner Communication Guide here: https://thelevelupco.com/planner-communication-freebie- Purchase the Filmmaker / Wedding Planner Communication Email Templates: https://thelevelupco.com/planner-email-template-bundle- Purchase the Elevated Client Experience Bundle: https://thelevelupco.com/client-experience-bundle- Join the LEVEL UP Facebook Community: https://www.facebook.com/groups/levelupyourweddingbusiness- Learn more about The Luxury Framework + Mastermind: https://thelevelupco.com/theluxuryframework Connect with Taylor , Kelley + The Level Up Co.:Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thelevelupco/Taylor's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/taylorpetrinovich/Kelley's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/618studio...

The Art of Risk Taking with Storybox Cinema

Risk taking is a muscle. You can flex it, you can get better at it, but that doesn't make it any less scary. Today's guest Chris Jespersen is proof of that. Chris's company, Storybox Cinema, is at the top of almost every "best of" list and how did he get there? By taking risks. Chris discusses how taking calculated risks in his career has gotten him to where he is today. And how as he rose in the industry, those risks never got less scary. But he knows by taking the risks everyone else is too scared to take, he is automatically putting himself in the front of the pack. So it is time to get comfortable with being uncomfortable and take those risks!LEVEL UP resources:- Luxury Client Communication Guide- https://thelevelupco.com/luxury-client-communication-guide- Download your free Planner Communication Guide here: https://thelevelupco.com/planner-communication-freebie- Purchase the Filmmaker / Wedding Planner Communication Email Templates: https://thelevelupco.com/planner-email-template-bundle- Purchase the Elevated Client Experience Bundle: https://thelevelupco.com/client-experience-bundle- Join the LEVEL UP Facebook Community: https://www.facebook.com/groups/levelupyourweddingbusiness- Learn more about The Luxury Framework + Mastermind: https://thelevelupco.com/theluxuryframework Connect with Taylor , Kelley + The Level Up Co.:Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thelevelupco/Taylor's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/taylorpetrinovich/Kelley's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/618studio...

Is going viral HURTING you?

The possibility of millions of people seeing your content and being exposed to your brand is an amazing thing, right? Well, maybe.The popularity of reels + TikTok and the excitement  of trying to going viral has changed the way we view content and these platforms.

And our goals are very different.Today's podcast episode is a discussion on mistakes we see wedding photographers and videographers making on social media, all while trying to go viral (and how it's likely HURTING their businesses far more than it's helping).

Cassie was born completely blind in her right eye with poor vision in her left. Studying film in college ignited her passion to tell stories and be behind the camera yet she always felt like she couldn’t because of her little eye.  When she finally decided to pursue videography as much more than just a hobby, Cassie named her company Little Eye Film Co to prove to herself that you should never let anything get in the way of pursuing your dreams. Through that experience, she learned that she is who she is because of her eye, not despite it. As Cassie grew as a filmmaker she realized that even though her eye is a huge part of who she is and why she is in business, there is so much more. https://cassiehiatt.com/https://www.instagram.com/cassiehiattfilms/https://www.tiktok.com/@cassiehiattfilmsCassie's Favorite Affirmations: https://cassiehiatt.com/2023/06/05/top-10-affirmations/LEVEL UP resources:- Download your free Planner Communication Guide here: https://thelevelupco.com/planner-communication-freebie- Purchase the Filmmaker / Wedding Planner Communication Email Templates: https://thelevelupco.com/planner-email-template-bundle- Purchase the Elevated Client Experience Bundle: https://thelevelupco.com/client-experience-bundle- Join the LEVEL UP Facebook Community: https://www.facebook.com/groups/levelupyourweddingbusiness- Join the VIP Waitlist for Luxury Filmmaker Framework: https://thelevelupco.com/course-waitlistConnect with Taylor , Kelley + The Level Up Co.:Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thelevelupco/Taylor's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/taylorpetrinovich/Kelley's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/618studios/www.TheLevelUpCo.com

SEO & How to Rank on Google w/ Jeffrey Armstrong

SEO & How to Rank on Google w/ Jeffrey ArmstrongI recently put out a poll on my Instagram stories asking what you, the podcast listeners, want to hear about most. And marketing won by a landslide. So I knew I had to get my friend Jeffrey Armstrong onto the podcast to talk about what he does best - SEO.Jeff is a wedding photographer that used a unique approach to SEO to rank on Google. This has helped him  get established in his market by going full-time and hitting six figures in two years of beginning his photo business. Not long after, many began asking how he was ranking for so many keywords and if he could do the same for their sites. Out of this came the EasySEO Program which is transforming photographers and videographers SEO game, leading to massive results in 30 to 90 days without confusion or wasted time that's typically so common to SEO. His mission is to help creatives generate leads on autopilot with minimal long-term upkeep that allows them to focus on connecting with their ideal clients so they can live and make more while doing less, developing what Jeff calls the "growth zone" where they can scale their businesses with digital products and programs that allow the maximization of lifestyle design.--Connect with Jeff--@jeffandmichelephotoCheck out Jeff's Easy SEO WebsiteEasy SEO Facebook Group--Connect with Taylor--@thelevelupco // @taylorpetrinovichthelevelupco.com --MORE RESOURCES FOR YOU--Join the Level Up Your Wedding Film Business Community on FacebookVisit the Level Up Your Wedding Film Business website

Today, I I’ve got my friend Kathryn from BLNK Films on the show to talk about something she does with excellence, and that’s infusing yourself and your personality into your business. And how that can truly benefit you.I’ve said this before on the podcast, but it’s definitely worth repeating, especially given the topic of today’s episode. And that is the fact that clients are far more likely to book a vendor that they feel connected to. I actually have a statistic here, and it says that 64% of consumers say their loyalty and desire to purchase a product, or in our case, hire us for a service, increases when they feel personally connected to that brand.Kathryn Majic is the wedding and elopement videographer behind Blnk Films. Based in Denver, Colorado, she started Blnk Films in 2017 immediately upon graduating college and hasn’t looked back since. Since launching her business, it has been Kathryn’s mission to produce films that break the mold of what wedding films “should be”, creating work that is a raw and intimate look into the couple and their love story, beyond the simple documentation of a wedding day. Kathryn is an incredibly passionate filmmaker, and it’s evident that she strives to make each couple’s film a true reflection of them.Connect with Kathryn:Check out her websiteInstagram: @BLNKfilmsYoutube ChannelCheck out the website: thelevelupco.comLet's Connect on Instagram: @thelevelupco // @taylorpetrinovich

How to Become a Better Wedding Filmmaker

It’s really important for us, as wedding filmmakers, to keep pushing forward. In our businesses, and specifically with our skills as filmmakers. Because everyone else around us is constantly learning and growing, and if we’re not, then we might as well be moving backwards.But it all starts with filmmaking. Because without the right raw materials - aka your footage, you really can’t make something out of nothing in the editing room. I truly believe that no matter what level you’re at, there is room for improvement. I don’t think there is a destination, we are just all on a journey towards becoming better, at all times. There are 3 areas to improve in as a filmmaker that will really help the overall quality of our films. Technical skills: lighting, composition, movement, and how to use a camera properlyAnticipation: knowing where to be and when on the wedding day. And knowing where to look for specific emotions and actions that will really add to your films.Interactions: knowing how to interact with a couple on their wedding day in a way that helps them feel comfortable, so that they come across as being comfortable on camera.Mentioned in this episode:YouTube Videos:- Cinematic Lighting Techniques by Parker Walbeck- 5 Ways to Instantly Make Better Videos by Peter McKinnon- Visual Storytelling 101 by Film Riot- Cinematic Gimbal Movements by Parker Walbeck- Shutter Speed for Video Explained by Matt WhoisMatt Johnson- Establishing Shots Tutorial by Matt WhoisMatt JohnsonCheck out the website: thelevelupco.comFollow along on Instagram: @thelevelupco // @taylorpetrinovich
