It’s all about keeping it classic! Check this out!
Many critics, journalists, authors, and music lovers around the world have called her “the most influential female recording artist of all time.” She is also the best-selling female rock artist of the 20th century and the Guinness Book of World Records best-selling female recording artist of all time. From the early 80s up through the current decade, her hits have been popular all over the radio waves and MTV. While many do not agree with the political stance or immorality she promotes, everyone has at least heard of Madonna. At 56 years old, she is still popular, even amongst the younger crowd. She is now much more than just a singer – she is an icon with an eye for business. In recent years, she partnered with her daughter to create a retro 80s style clothing line for Macy’s, and performed in front of millions of viewers (both live, on TV, and online) during the Super Bowl XLVI halftime show which also featured several other currently popular artists. She played a huge role in the controversial MDNA Tour that featured political and ethical topics, which actually sparked an increase in box office sales. Madonna has maintained the same basic style, but has strategically stayed with the current trends (yes, you can follow her on Instagram!).
It has been said that insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results. With technology constantly progressing, it is important to keep up with the times, lest you be left behind. Here at Phil Hyman Photography, we are certainly not as infamous as Madonna! We do, however, make a conscious effort to continue to provide the same quality work we have always done while keeping up with the changing times. In recent years, we have kept up both our website blog and our Facebook page faithfully, as we seek to connect with you and your family and keep you up to date both with happenings in the studio and life with the Hyman family. Despite our growing presence in social media, we still send out hand written thank-you notes because, let’s face it, who doesn’t like receiving personal mail in their mailbox? This added personal touch is one of the aspects of our business that we don’t see a reason to change anytime soon. In fact, with the increase in social media, it’s not too often anyone receives a hand written note, so we like being the exception! As we have said before, while it is important to document everyday life with photos taken on personal digital devices, nothing can replace the beauty of an heirloom portrait, so we are committed to keeping this art alive in Greenville.
From season to season, we also vary a bit on which products are popular, although our classic portraiture is featured in each work of art created. This fall, of course, we expect to be busy with many family portraits in preparations for both Christmas gifts and annual Christmas cards. We look forward to continuing to serve you in the coming years by providing the same classic work that has always been associated with Phil Hyman Photography, while connecting with you on social media and providing services based on the needs we see in the community.
