Founded in April of 2011, Cincinnati’s own Framester has taken the “modern photobooth” and transformed it into an all-out show-stopping experience. Fueled by the creativity of the event attendees, Framester is produced by multiple local event photographers, planners and promoters—who, together and under the direction of “Big Cheese” Adam Kleshinski, have expanded their offering to include non-profits, corporate events, weddings, bars and clubs. Current clients include Vitaminwater, Range Rover, Proctor and Gamble, United Way, USO, the Cincinnati Zoo and the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.
What We Do
Framester has merged event photography, event entertainment and event afterlife (via social network tools) into one. Framester photo shoots have set the new standard by producing images and environments that go far beyond conventional event photography services on every level. Having trouble landing a sponsor for your event? We can help. Just want to add some fun to your party and come away looking like a movie star? Well, we do that too. Launching a new business or trying to engage your market a la Facebook and Twitter? Done and done. Good people make the world go ’round, and we have a long list of sponsors who love what we do. We’d love to make the introduction, and can’t wait to Frame your next event.
Day of the Event-
In about 2 hours or less, we transform a 10×10 nook of your venue into a certifiable Hollywood photo shoot. Set design, consulting and construction are all part of the package too. Lights, camera…showtime. Our photographers step aside and let your attendees do their thing, assisting with the Q&A only where required. After the shoot, we take the images back to the digital darkroom and smother them in love. Dash of this and a pinch of that, 24 hours in the oven and FLASH: You’ve been Framed! Images are loaded up to our website for download or print, and often posted to Facebook as well (where you can Like, Tag and Share till the cows come home…and trust us…you will).
FAQ’s, Uppers and Downers-
Framester doesn’t just shoot your event, it MAKES the event. On that note, here’s a short list of other stuff we DON’T do, and why:
Prints at the Event: Nope. We love our planet and don’t think its cool to waste photo paper on prints that won’t likely make it home in one piece…prints of photos that haven’t been edited…prints that half the attendees don’t really want anyway. We make ALL images available for digital download, and can deliver affordable, high-quality prints straight to your doorstep through our website. We also offer password-protected galleries for your group’s private viewing pleasure, allowing for freebies and discounts on the media.
Instant Uploads and Sharing: Double nope. We want to have a look at that content before the images zip off to the infinite internet universe…and before you get called into the boss’ office for your “creative” shots during the holiday party. Yup, there’s definitely a reason Facebook has changed their Tagging protocols. We can’t help but agree. You’ll see the images on the instant feedback HDTV at the event, and will find your pics in 24 hours or less, guaranteed.
Get to Know Us!-
Drop us a line via our contact form so we can make the personal (timely, and professional) intro to our services and pricing. You’ll never hear us use the word “impossible”. Actually, we’re kindof obsessed with keeping things fresh, so don’t hesitate to ask about your party…big or small. We’re growing at a quick pace, and currently service many major markets in the Tri-State area. Interested in working with us? We’re always looking to grow our team with passionate, skilled and respectable individuals.
Transforming ordinary into the “extra”ordinary, one flash at a time….It’s your world. We’re just Framing it.
Candid yet classy, our images deliver a “wow” factor that you’d expect from a professional Hollywood photo shoot. And that’s probably because we use the same equipment they do, but without all the attitude and in-your-face over-the-top ego that usually comes with it. We trust you with our stuff, simply put. So just press the button (and please don’t touch the camera) and enjoy your newfound stardom. All photos are professionally shot, processed and uploaded in high resolution with results that speak for themselves.
One word: Unique. No two faces or fingerprints are the same…and we make sure that our shoots follow suit. Our creative approach to designing a scene assures that each photo shoot captures the iconic spirit of your event, the venue and its attendees. We do set consulting for free and will likely ask to see the space before the day of the event. Our network allows us to provide everything from basic backdrops to all-out custom set design, construction and installation. Ideas are free, and we’ll even throw in some backdrops/props for free too. Pricing on the rest of it is TBD, commensurate with time and materials. That might sound intimidating, but we’re still just a start-up–which means we’re a darn thrifty crew that aims to please. If you can think of it, just ask.
From weddings and private parties to large-scale corporate or non-profit events, Framester doesn’t just preserve memories…we help to create them. We leave the control of the shoot to its participants—allowing for a more comfortable interaction—leading to exceptional results and hours of fun for all. We specialize in promoting the shoot throughout the event in real-time through the use of projectors and flat-screens as well. In fact, we take pride in having more people in line for Framester than the number of people on the dancefloor…the entire time, every time. We’re not bragging here, but we’re sort of a big deal. And the photo galleries we post are nothing short of viral, giving the fun and excitement of your event a long digital media afterlife.
Marketing and Promotion
We have brands who follow us, we have fans who follow us. If you’re an event that needs attendees, we can promote, photograph and entertain. We’ve developed some interesting techniques in the marketing department and are excited to help you help yourself when it comes to impacting your organization and the event in one Framed swoop.
If you’re a non-profit raising funds for your event, we can help you get the sponsorship you need to hire us, and then some. We dig what you do, so we’ll help you sell us…for more than our cost of service..and you can keep the change for your organization, effectively reducing our price to zero. Yup, it works, and we’d be glad to explain it in person.
If you’re a corporation or PR firm who’s stumped about how to engage your target market segment through social media tools, look no further. We have a long list of events that want us to work with them. We can match your target to our event pool and broker a sponsorship, delivering measurable (yes, measurable) results to the boss back home.
