This month, I will be featuring women who I have had the opportunity to collaborate with last year. Each of the women I worked with on various projects inspired me, changed me and rocked my world. In no special order, first up is Willa Kammerer. She is a talented multimedia storyteller that came into my world by way of Salt Institute. I wanted to showcase my clients portraiture while incorporating movement and capture the sound of the many precious moments that take place during a session.
Last year while photographing one of my favorite kiddo’s, she turned around, saw her Dad and yelled, “DADDY!” and ran to him. Her little voice, her excitement and that moment is exactly what brought me to reach out and find someone to collaborate with. Willa came to me with a twist and she certainly brought my photography to life. We jumped in with our ideas and she blew me away with her instincts of where to be during the sessions. She nailed my vision and she has enabled me to bring an amazing service to my clients. The finished products we presented have far exceeded any expectation I could have had.
Meet Willa Kammerer
Willa Kammerer is a freelance radio and multimedia producer based in Portland, Maine. She is a graduate of the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies, and a freelance multimedia producer based in Portland, Maine. Willa, produces multimedia for a diverse group of clients including, LiveWork Portland.org, NOAA, Middlebury College, and small businesses such as SheChanges.
My multimedia collaboration with Melissa was born out of her desire to bring her still photography “to life” for her clients. I convinced her that what I do – documentary-style multimedia storytelling incorporating audio and still photography – was just the way to accomplish that. It’s one thing to be able to look back on photographs of your son’s third birthday party, or an afternoon spent at the beach with your family; it’s quite another to be able to watch and listen to your son blowing out the candles, to hear the sound of the surf and your family’s laughter, just as it sounded on that day, in that particular moment in time. No moment is to big or small for multimedia – whatever your special moment is, we can help bring it to life so that it’s a moment you can hold onto. Bring us your ideas – we can work together to develop a piece or a project that fits your vision and budget.
Tomorrow, I will be featuring the Jepson Family multimedia piece and share our experiences with you about this exciting new service Melissa Mullen Photography now provides.
In the meantime, check out Willa in action doing what she is ridiculously good at . . .
I look forward to sharing our multimedia pieces with you!
