Photography and Image selection

Utt-Grubb & Company provides photography and image selection services to business owners looking to grow their ventures. 

Kelly Utt-Grubb has been providing commercial photography and image selection services for clients since 2008, and she is skilled at capturing and selecting professional-quality images which communicate the authentic personality of a brand and the team behind it. 

Kelly will travel to you for a photoshoot nomatter where you're located, and afterwards will provide you with full and unlimited rights to the hundreds (or in some cases thousands) of images she captures.  You will be free to enlarge the images onto canvas and hang them in your physical space, to use them on the web or in advertising and marketing materials including in-store displays, and to provide them to media when they publish stories about you and your brand.  There is never an additional charge for usage rights beyond the cost of the shoot.

If Kelly determines it's appropriate to supplement the images from your photoshoot with commercial stock, she will select the necessary photos and will advise you on usage rights and options. 

Photography project pricing depends on the scope of the shoot (i.e. number of products and people to be photographed) and is most often paired with additional brand strategy consulting and creative services. On-site local photography is a popular compliment to a web design project.
