Creative collaborations

One of the things I love about running a small business, is the chance it gives to collaborate with like-minded people and create something really great. It's at the heart of what I do with 91 Magazine and I love how it is a bringing together of different creative skills and ideas to produce an end product.

So it was really lovely to see online boutique Magpie Miller (a current 91 Magazine advertiser!), Stylist Charlotte Love (a 91 contributor!) and photographer Jon Day working together on a photoshoot showcasing the lovely range of Magpie Miller products.

One of the most imperative things when you are running a small business, whether it be selling products or services, is the necessity for good photography and this is the perfect example of how to really gain exposure for your brand. I love what the guys have done here; bringing together Charlotte's wonderful styling, Jon's clean, crisp photography and Magpie Miller's lovely products, they've created a set of beautifully fresh and fun images that keep the products centre stage and really show them off at their best.

If you're running your own business, I would highly recommend looking into the idea of  collaborating. While it may seem like a costly outlay initially, when your brand begins to gain exposure via blogs, Pinterest and other social media, the benefits really become clear. The internet is a big old place, so to stand out, you gotta utilise the creative talent out there and start combining your skills!
