Social Media Photography

Images get the attention of your visitors. With good, authentic images, your content converts.
But creating those images yourself is time consuming and they don't always turn into good picures.
A great photographer will understand your brand and deliver captivating visual stories that will draw people's attention.

How great would it be to have a stash of super cool images that you can draw from, at any time? You don't have to worry about not having something to post. Ever.

And if you're like many entrepreneurs I've met, you need pictures of you but you're not that comfortable when shooting.  I'll take good care of you, I'm great with that! You don't have to be photogenic. You don't have to be a model. Just be yourself and let me be around you. Trust me!

Claudia Hoag

Hi, I'm Claudia Hoag

A one-eyed photographer? Aye, matey. And this one eye can see the best in you: your best angles, your best side. And it’s your story I want to tell now, created with images. I went to film school to tell stories, then I switched to journalism and kept telling stories. Then worked for a few years on software development, web applications, databases. But I’m more into visual tales than anything, so back to your story... Let us create that image that will speak without words, and leave the audience wanting for more. Are you ready?

Here's How It Works

Schedule It

♦ For a limited time, we have a special for the lowest price ever: book the Special Intro Single Story while it's available!

Rates

  • Sessions go from $2,000 to $8,500 if purchased individually. These prices are reduced for annual subscriptions (minimum 4 sessions a year).
  • Packages include commercial rights to the images. It doesn't matter if one of your photos becomes viral and you make money out of it, or if you want to use them in an ad piece, or in a book. And you can edit them as you wish, and you are never obligated to mention me or include credits.
  • In order to give my clients the best service possible, I take a very limited number of personal brand clients. I get to know their individual brands, and what works best for each of them.

"Beyond Happy 🙂"

"I had an amazing shoot with Claudia. At first I was nervous because I have been using the same photographer for the past four years. But I recently relocated to Los Angeles, so I had to cut the cord and find a new photographer. Claudia put all of my concerns at ease right at our first phone conversation. She was so pleasant and enthusiastic. During the shoot, she gave great direction and really helped me." — LaToya Franklyn
