The Salinger Media Services Philosophy
Freelance supplier of content for organisations large and small.
Services offered include writing, photography, commercial and film production and editing, drone imagery, social media design and delivery, communications strategies and training, campaign preparation strategies and reporting, graphic design and print and digital marketing collateral production.
Beyond the provision of services I take great pride in a commitment to lifelong learning, continuously developing and enhancing my marketing skills for the evolving communications landscape and ever-connected world we occupy.
A hallmark of my services is my ability to combine high level communications elements such as strategic planning, branding, creative concept development, evaluation and research with the creation of content that can be delivered cost-effectively across multiple channels. This level of media service offerings is usually matched only by multi-people agencies. However, my broad skillset enables me to provide a comprehensive range of tailored services while being able to pass on the resulting cost savings to clients.
I also have a strong service ethos. I work with my clients to identify your content needs, hone your strategy, develop solutions, create engaging content and deliver communications outcomes that work.
The pillars of my media services are:
Development and implementation of brand-based communications strategies, campaign planning, aesthetic site assessments to ensure your messaging is reflected in the built environment, research and reporting.

This includes aerial photography as a CASA-licensed drone operator. Images are professionally edited and delivered to your deadline.

Why media matters
Media matters because it helps to define and position an organisation. To build brand. To grow audience. To inform and engage community. Media matters because it is synonymous with an organisation’s identity and public perception. In today’s connected world effective marketing strategies are vital for organisations of all sizes and in all industries.
My experience and tailored content services make the most of traditional and digital media opportunities to develop and deliver effective content that resonates with audiences. My specialty is combining written communications with visual imaging. I have provided high quality media content for a wide range of clients for nearly 15 years. You might be surprised at how cost-effective and time-efficient bringing outside expertise into your organisation is. It really is a clever way to deliver media that matters.
I hold post-graduate qualifications in professional writing through Deakin University and have prior experience as a journalist with particular interest in rural, education, social, political and features reporting for both print and digital audiences. I provide well-written, researched and timely writing coupled with proofreading and editing skills for accuracy of your organisation’s communications. I have formal media training in defamation, libel, copyright, IP, content licensing and risk management issues, which is critical in a ‘live’ communications environment such as the social media world. I also have nearly 15 years of experience as a provider of professional photography services, graphic and web design, and almost a decade of video production experience.
Cost-effective, Engaging Communications Strategies
I focus on the delivery of reliable, high quality services to my clients. One of the key aspects of my role as a service provider is developing and delivering cost-effective social media strategies – working with clients to plan and assess programs and implement achievable outcomes. I have the ability to deliver comprehensive, tailored analytical reports that check and calibrate messaging for enhanced audience growth and engagement. I also enjoy building stakeholder capacity which includes delivering training and professional development days with a particular focus on photography, writing, cyber safety and social media management.
Since 2008 I have provided marketing services to more than 100 clients across a diverse range of industry sectors. I particularly enjoy working with organisations in the not-for-profit and education sectors whose work aligns with my values and interests. These marketing services have included everything from the provision of one-off photographic services at events through to complete rebranding strategies and the implementation of multi-faceted, multi-year marketing service agreements.
