During the spring semester of 2020, I completed JMC 3423, “Public Relations Writing,” taught by Dr. Meta G. Carstarphen. I selected Madison Claire Photography as a client for this semester’s work. Here are some of my favorite assignments that I completed.
Madison Claire Photography was founded because I love capturing beautiful moments and putting my own creative ideas into a photoshoot. I’m a photographer for the University of Oklahoma athletics department while also running my own portrait photography business, Madison Claire Photography, in the OKC metro area. On top of that, I am currently a full-time Art, Technology, and Culture major at the University of Oklahoma. I’m always busy but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Bringing others joy using my talents is what fills me. I started practicing photography in Highschool and ran with it, never saying no to any opportunity that came my way. Madison Claire Photography began as a hobby, which grew into my dream job. My mission is to continue making art using a camera as my medium while also capturing life’s most authentic moments.
This short story is intended to outline Madison Claire Photography’s key message as well as provide some information about Madison and why she started Madison Claire Photography. It answers who, what, when, where, and how.

For immediate release
Madison Claire Photography of Norman is hosting a giveaway valued at $800
NORMAN- This month, you have the opportunity to enter a giveaway that includes free services from multiple local artists. Madison Claire Photography is hosting a giveaway that includes a free photography session with Madison, a free cut and color with August and Omi, a local hair salon, and a free pair of locally handmade earrings.
Madison is an accomplished portrait photographer who is also a student at the University of Oklahoma. She is studying Art, Technology, and Culture, or ATC. She has been a photographer for 6 years and is also on the creative media team for the OU Athletics Department. Her specialties include senior photos, styled shoots, couples photos, prom and birthdays. Sessions vary in length from 30 minutes to an hour and fifteen minutes.
From the beginning, Madison’s goal has been to capture authentic moments while making her clients feel confident and comfortable.
To enter the giveaway, follow @madisonclaire.co and @augustandomi on Instagram, like Madison’s post, and tag as many people as you want. Each tag is one entry. For ten extra entries, repost the picture to your Instagram story and tag @madisonclaire.co.

The successful news release is an essential communications tool sent to the media about important organizational information that clearly connects with “news values.”
This giveaway is a partnership of two small local businesses. I imagine this would be released in a local paper or magazine. It addresses who, what, when, where, and how as well as incorporates a portion of Madison Claire Photography’s brand story.
I’m a long time follower of your blog and I love seeing your Lush and Vici try-on’s!
If you’re familiar with Kyler Murray and his social media, you are familiar with Madison Compton’s work. Madison was the photographer for Murrays Heisman shoot, as seen in Sports Illustrated. Madison began practicing photography as a 15-year-old freshman in high school. By 2018, Madison’s Freshman year In college, she ran and operated her part-time portrait photography business and also began working as a part-time photographer for OU Athletics.

The media pitch is a strategic writing tool that captures the essence of a human interest story that has the potential to develop into a feature article. By definition, a feature must connect with “the human condition” in a broad way that could be of interest to audiences outside of your organization. In addition, plan a second pitch idea that imagines your client as an “expert” commenting on a current trend.
For Madison Claire Photography, I thought it would be appropriate to reach out to a local successful Instagram influencer. Since this person is local, they would be reaching the same publics, and based on the influencer’s followers, she could also be speaking to potential clients of Madison Claire Photography.
