Today I received hundreds of congratulatory messages for 23 years of service to Adlife & PreparedFoodPhotos.com. My business actually began while I was in college at Massachusetts College Of Art in 1978. That was almost 40 years ago.
"Yes, I And Now We Began In 1978"
I began freelancing in 1978 in an effort to put myself through college. I loved working on supermarket ads and photographing food. While I am certain this made me the least interesting and possible least successful student in my class I was able to support myself and keep up with my tuition payments....barely!
People always ask me why I say we? Well, today we are a company of creative professionals it's not just me. A group of foodies working for foodies and on a branding mission to bring our foodies the success they have worked so hard for.
When I graduated from college I named my company J.M. Albrizio inc which later morphed into Adlife Marketing & Communications. Adlife continuing to expand and stay current is now offering the "Almost 40 Years Of Food Photography" as a monthly subscription under the name PreparedFoodPhotos.com
Again, Not The Most Exciting Life Or Story To Read, But It's My Story!
So almost 40 years later yes, we still love to photograph food and work on food ads. It has helped me raise "7" children and all of the expenses that have accompanied them. While somewhat boring or perhaps to the level of nerd status to most as careers go, I have had a great time & still love what I do.
PreparedFoodPhotos.com has over 25,000 images amassed over the almost 40 years of work and honestly some great lunches & dinners in the process while at work.
"Take A Look & Give Us A Try, We Think You Will Like What You See"
This is a digital offering for the significant grocery wholesaler or retailer looking for great perishable images with extensive licensing requirements, not the local deli or pizza palace. PreparedFoodPhotos.com is all about branding retail food.
We have a lot to be grateful for, thank you.
In closing, many have asked why I choose to write about what I see in the supermarket industry today and my ideas. At Adlife we believe great ideas and its resulting branding will give new life and direction to any company. So for that reason we chose to open the discussion.
