If you’re on a committee organizing an event, here’s something to ponder when you’re hiring your event photographer:

Not only do I guarantee you excellent quality photos of your guests, I also offer you a fantastic platform to show them off: an extensive Facebook friend list, the Tribune’s “Spotted” website, Top10Sarasota.com as well as my SmugMug gallery and personal website.

Event photography is not just about taking a few souvenir snapshots with your cell phone any more – it’s the marketing tool that will take you and your event to the next level for the future.

Call me at 941 685-9017 or mail me at cliffroles@aol.com.

I guarantee you the best distribution in the county.
