Oldie but Goodie Brochure Design

I applied for a Social Media position for my job and had my oral board/interview. I thought it might be cool to bring a few of my pieces to the interview to show my talent to the board. I came across an old brochure I designed for First Presbyterian Church of Thibodaux. The update to the brochure was to replace the old literature we had on the church and replace the brochure with a more colorful and updated presence. When looking at the cover panel of the brochure, you will see a beautiful profile photo of the church, and when you open to the inside, you will be greeted by members of the church. The back side of the brochure shows a map and the contact info fo...

Book Design and Review

By Brandon M Queen

Book by Steven Hess and CreateSpace

I finally got a chance to print my work on a large scale. My buddy Stephen Hess wrote a book on the Lord's Supper, and I get the privilege to design the book from start to finish/cover to cover. I must shout out to CreateSpace by Amazon for doing a fantastic job printing the book. With small and minor issues, the book looks terrific. So if you are a self-publishing author and need assistance laying out your book, contact us at Brandon Queen Photography, and we will be more than happy to assist you with your book.

Recently, my husband and I began looking at listings of houses for sale in the Houma area. We’re excited to prayerfully buy our first home at the end of this year and can become quickly overwhelmed by everything that goes into purchasing a home So what do we do to keep the excitement going? We set up our search parameters and browse what’s available in our area! But what happens when we click on a house that seems interesting but realize there are few to no pictures of the house available or that the images provided are poor in quality? We quickly hit the back button and move on to the next house for sale. If you’re serious about selling real estate, and...

Organizing your files

By Brandon M Queen

We all own some (digital) data files either it is a document, photo, music file, etc. You either created the file, received it from someone, or downloaded it from the internet; does not matter. You should be able to find those files within a folder that you created. If you do photography as a hobby or profession, and a client calls you a few months later requesting IMG_0068.jpg or 16.n.kreweofchristophertableau0068.bmq.jpg, you should be able to search for the file by doing a local search or know where to go to retrieve that file and provide it to your client. Data management is crucial, and every photographer should have some filing system in place.


The video below will show you the inside o...
