Motion picture Director of Photography & Still Photographer Josiah Morgan is offering free business portraits to Roam members for a day.
Why free portraits?
After years of shooting commercials for groups like the Atlanta Falcons and SYSCO, and promo footage for TV networks like HGTV and DIY, Josiah is looking to expand his portfolio with business portraits. However, these aren’t just any portraits. Fascinated by the rising tide of entrepreneurial endeavors in the greater Atlanta area, these portraits will be the first in an ongoing portraiture project featuring the people behind these start-ups and small businesses. While the portraits made at Roam will start as digital photos, they may end up as metallic silver images made by hand, and part of the larger portraiture project.
You (Roam members) get a top-notch business portrait for free. Josiah gets your portrait as part of his portfolio, where he can use it for his own promotional purposes.
We will spend 20 minutes on each portrait. There are ONLY 21 slots. Openings will assigned on a first-to-sign-up basis.
Tuesday, September 9 | 9am-12pm & 1pm-5pm
FREE for first 21 Members
