SWEET JUSTICE + REDDEN PHOTOGRAPHY ARE GOING TO ICELAND!
+ ICELAND PROJECT PROMOTION +
The Kickstarter has almost come to a close, the flights are booked, + we are giddy.
The journey begins in Reykjavik, Iceland, + for the next two weeks our team of six will hop in our Jeep for a cross-island journey. Along the way, we'll shoot at the Blue Lagoon, moss-covered lava fields, Barnafossar Waterfalls, Kirkjufell Mountain, beaches, national parks, craters, + glaciers, capturing a champagne toast in the sunset + nights under the Northern Lights at their peak.
The cause for our project is local business. Here in Fort Collins, local business is what makes this city a wellspring of natural lifestyle, creative innovators, + rich quality. These values attract so many people that Fort Collins is 12th among the fastest-growing metros in the nation, putting it above Denver (US Census Bureau). The strong economic development of Fort Collins is one of the main reasons for this growth, being the 2nd most entrepreneurial state (Denver Business Journal) + having the #1 fastest growing economy in America (Business Insider). As one of the country’s best places to live, many corporate + local businesses are setting up shop in our neighborhood.
Sweet Justice Photography + Redden Photography have partnered to bring our city inspiring advertising for local businesses. Together with Fort Collins businesses + family-owned companies, we create lasting, artful impressions on the livelihood of the small business industry.
Downtown FoCo annually attracts a quarter million people to visit, shop, + dine at an array of locations created by our Fort Collins neighbors (Downtown Fort Collins Business Administration). In an opportune time of economic growth, we are upping the game of local brand ads for a few of the 225 brick + mortar, history-rich shops lining the town.
We plan to bring merchandise straight from these shops to Icelandic locations mentioned above. This project integrates both the visions of local companies + Fort Collins culture with our Iceland itinerary. The outcome will be valuable images that inspire our community to shop local. Local success allows this town's entrepreneurs, wives, husbands, + thriving young adults to thrive off of their dreams without having to commute to larger cities.
With local business, people achieve their dreams in their own neighborhood. We hope that in using the tool of social media, + by increasing the aesthetic of local brand websites, we can spread the name of these brands to a wide consumer base, increasing business nation-wide.
