Video Production: Simply Elevate magazine – Irish American Society

  • Video Production: Simply Elevate magazine – Irish American Society

Last month, we had a great video production for Simply Elevate magazine’s March issue. The story was about Irish culture and heritage in Hampton Roads and Virginia at large. We had a wonderful time sitting down and interviewing Lynnette Fitch Brash, president of the Irish American Society of Tidewater. We had great fun shooting this video interview, and we hope you will enjoy watching it. Check it out at SimplyElevate.com.

JBK Productions shoots Southern Wine & Spirits’s Promo!

Okay, imagine your in a club. Music is popping, your friends are having a good time and the waitress has just brought over a bottle of your favorite spirit. Your friends say, ” Hey, let’s go dance!” Sure but wait…you can’t just leave a bottle of liquor on the table! Well thanks to MoonJelly Marketing you can! JBK Productions got the amazing *hick* pleasure of providing commercial photography (and testing) for these innovative products. 🙂

Photo shoot for La Fortuna Cafe’s social media and internet marketing

La Fortuna Cafe store front in Hinsdale, IL

Over the Christmas holiday, I had the wonderful opportunity to shoot some promotional photography for La Fortuna Café and Coffee Roaster. This project was to increase their online presence and marketing materials for social media outlets like Facebook, Yelp and Google Maps. Tucked away in an alley in downtown Hinsdale, IL, La Fortuna Café first American store opened in the fall last year. However, their farm in Chiapas, Mexico has been family owned and operated since 1908!

Owner, farmer and roaster Alejandro Garcia-Palacios is a truly inspiring person and has lead an interesting life. As the third son of Mario and Martha Garcia, he is a third generation coffee grower! Plus, he was more than willing to pose for the camera and pull many espresso shots for product photos.

It was a wonderful shoot with some of the best coffee I’ve ever tasted. Alejandro was a great sport and the images really show off his passion. It’s projects like this that remind me why I love being a photographer!
