Last year I had the pleasure of meeting John Hoppe from John’s Place in Glenview. John’s advertising agency contacted me because they needed some marketing photos of John. John’s Place is a personalized auto care shop specializing in European models. John wanted marketing images that represented the way he feels about his business and about his customers – that he personally stands behind all work done at his shop and that he is “at your service.” I loved this idea because this is also the way I feel about my business and my customers. I also really loved John’s idea of wearing his tuxedo and holding customers’ keys on a silver platter. (You can see that the advertising agency added the silver platter later in production…LOL!) Today I had the opportunity to check out the lifesize “cardboard John” that is up in the shop. It was really fun to see the final use of some of the images we captured that day.
John’s Place is very comfortable and family-friendly. John was kind enough to allow me to put up a canvas display of childrens’ photographs in his waiting room. He also has some of his amazing travel photography on display. If you are near Glenview and you need your car serviced, stop by John’s Place!
