Elevate results through heart-centred design
How your brand engages, promotes, empowers and motivates your audience to turn them into active ambassadors, participants and customers for life, requires a thorough understanding of the customer journey and a roadmap on how to get there.
Without a big budget, your brand will have to directly engage with your audience in an empathic way, that appeals to the emotional needs that we all have to feel wanted and included, to be loved and accepted, to learn and grow and express ourselves authentically. 
Messaging should be delivered consistently throughout the year, without coming across as sales-y and in it only for the sake of appearing to do the right thing. Audiences can sense when you're being disingenuous.  
Knowing how and when to apply this messaging to affect business results is the conundrum that most brands face - especially these days as transformation into the digital economy is forcing us to re-think our approach in innovative and creative ways.

Markham Lane holds the 2021 Ron Austin Award presented to Colours of Our Community, after the awards ceremony, captured with Cassandra Loover, Emily Santiago, Mel Schwerdt, Liz Carter and Mardi Gras CEO Albert Kruger.
At Markham Images, our award-winning formula takes a heart-centred approach, designing creative and cultural experiential programs, content, products and digital assets that are full of passion, love, desire, humour and a healthy dose of cheeky fun, and turning them into profits. 
It's incredibly rewarding work! 
Though none of it can be achieved without a solid understanding of who we are doing this for and what motivates them to want to get involved. 
Building a really tight network of engaged producers, facilitators, suppliers, partners, and sponsors to execute on each program has been the secret to our success and the only reason we receive rave reviews from the stars of it all, our customers and extended communities.
A personal message from Markham Lane
"Most people recognise me as a photographer but what most people don't know is that I absolutely love using my creative leadership skills to connect hearts and minds, while motivating those around me to visualise and realise their best life.
It's an absolute blessing that I get to design and direct programs that bring people together, united by a common goal, to create memories, friendships and relationships that last a lifetime.  
What if this could be done on a grander scale - couldn't we all make room for more love and in our lives? 
I want to empower communities to lift their vibration, share their passions and participate in the most visually stunning creative expression of pride and love the world has ever seen! 
If you're someone that can assist and wish to contribute in a positive way, or make a donation, then please, make contact with me and let's make a plan on how we can work together to make this world a better place."
