How do you get PhillyChitChat to cover your event?
All you have to do is invite me. Whether it’s a girls night out, birthday party at a restaurant, charity event, etc just send me the date (at least 2 weeks in advance – email me Buzz @PhillyChitChat.com, I don’t always see the FB invites) and I will try and stop by. If you want a guarantee that I will stop by you can hire me. When you hire me not only do I stop by and write your event up on PhillyChitChat, but you get to keep all the photos I take to use as you please. (Alexander Hankins and Ilana Waber celebrate her birthday at Whisper)You don’t have to be a celebrity, I do like photographing celebrities, but my mainstay is regular peeps like you and me. Even if your having a party at a business, I will come by and photograph it.
If you’re my advertiser you get a live link, like Recess, but not like Whisper above. I think I do a fair job at covering all businesses, whether they advertise with me or not. If someone hires me for an event, they also get live links. The only thing I am partial too is covering stories in Center City preferably restaurants, event space or clubs.I will go out to Jersey or the Main Line, but it has to be pretty exciting like The Radnor Hunt, the Food and Wine event in Atlantic City an envelope stuffing event for charity or if you have someone named Hamilton on your guest list.
I love covering news events, press conferences of interest. promotions, debuts, opening nights. It was a huge honor to meet Martin Luther King III as he promoted his new network Bounce here in Philly last month. Melanie Johnson is giving MLK III a citation from the City, as Chase Lenfest looks on. Lenfest Media is broadcasting Bounce TV (http://www.bouncetv.com), the country’s first and fast-growing over-the-air broadcast television network for African-Americans. I try and give live links to charities and random things. I guess you could say I am creating the rules as I go, but it is a business, as well as a community service so I try and stay true to my mission. So drop me a line, write me for my photography rates and/or advertise with me. I get over 120,000 readers a month, see my stats here >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
