Shooting From the Hip: Breaking Down the Ins and Outs of Two Client Photo Shoots

Recently, KK BOLD did two photo shoots for two of our clients: Apache Casino Hotel in Lawton, Oklahoma and Nisqually Red Wind Casino in Olympia, Washington. Janene Pudwill, KK BOLD’s art director, was the director for both shoots. To give you a better idea of what directing a photo shoot is like, we had Janene describe the inner workings of both shoots.

Nisqually Red Wind Casino Completes Expansion; Never Been Redder, Thanks

When you’re Nisqually Red Wind Casino (which you are probably not, considering that casinos cannot read e-newsletters), the redder you are, the better. So following the completion of their extensive 20-month expansion and the launch of KK BOLD’s largest marketing campaign of all time to go with it, things are so, so much more redder at Red Wind that they may just change their name to Nisqually Redder Wind Casino (Ed. note – They are not changing their name.)

It’s happened to most of us at least once.

The staff was friendly, the food looked great, the atmosphere seemed inviting and everybody seemed to be having a great time.

North Dakota State Fair Turns a Great. Big. Fifty.

Assuming you’re a good North Dakotan (Which you must be, because that’s the only kind there is. Are we right? High five us!), you already know that the North Dakota State Fair is now open for business. It’s also the Fair’s 50th anniversary, which makes this a standout year for both the Fair and KK BOLD, as we continue our multi-year partnership as the Fair’s marketing agency.
