When asked to write some blogs for Mystic Knotwork one idea I couldn't wait to produce was a photo history of all the wonderful people who modeled the nautical bracelets, necklaces, anklets, hair sticks and yes Carlton and his dog toy!
The first model is Matt and Jill's daughter who now helps run the business in Mystic. She set the bar pretty high and to this day holds the spot as our signature model thanks to Kim at Europa Photography. Going forward, friends of friends, brothers and sisters lots of people stepped forward to be a model. Most importantly these shoots were fun, taking us to the beach, the docks nearby, enjoying the outside air and being creative. A variety of photographers, meeting new people, making connections and learning new techniques.
We also teamed up with local businesses and collaborated on shoots while cross branding our products. The goal, is to share images across social media and widen our reach into different markets.
Many times a photographer would ask if they could do a shoot with our products, usually their models and in turn use the images to build up their portfolio and also share with us. If you are out there please get in touch. Models too! Contact Jill 860-889-3793 ext. 3.
The next 12 photos are taken by Kim of europaphotographyllc.zenfolio.com @europaphoto Kim has helped us throughout the years, a great inspiration. Her studio is located in the Velvet Mill, Stonington.
