ONE OF AMERICA’S BEST PHOTOGRAPHERS COMES TO BRISBANE’S HAIR OF THE DOG

Monday 17 January, 2011 – International photographer Jasmine Star has been added to the Australian Institute of Professional Photography’s (AIPP) line up of speakers at February’s Hair of the Dog photographic event in Brisbane.

Based in Orange County, USA, Star was voted in the Top Ten Wedding Photographers of 2009 by American Photo Magazine.

‘Australia holds a very special place in my heart,’ said Jasmine.  ‘I am honoured to be a part of the AIPP’s Hair of the Dog event and am completely thrilled to be able to share information with the industry on a global level.  Australian photographers are some of the most highly respected in the world so it is a wonderful opportunity for me to be involved.’

Renown for her bubbly personality and daily blogging, Star will be addressing Australian audiences about the importance of branding, why it’s vital to business development and how to succeed at it through cost effective means.

An advocate of social media, Jasmine started out just four years ago but quickly rose to the top of the ranks by empowering her clients to become the voice of her brand.

‘While Jasmine works in the wedding photography arena, her business acumen and branding strategies are highly relevant to photographers across all industries,’ said AIPP Executive Officer, Mr Peter Myers.

‘We are thrilled to have one of the world’s top wedding photographers share her insights in to branding and social media,’ added Peter. 

‘Australia is years behind the United States when it comes to leveraging social media and we expect photographers will gain much insight in to the future of this important medium for their business strategy.’
