Cultivate creative muscle and boost team spirit by encouraging interested staff members to participate in national photo competitions. Your team can take advantage of the January lull by making it a time to solicit for models, create a unique point of view, hire a photographer and shoot. Should they win, a national title is a wonderful marketing tool for both your staff and your business.
