True North Federal Credit Union (TNFCU) is accepting proposals in response to this Request for Proposal (RFP) to select an experienced professional photographer (Photographer) to create professional portraits for our ‘My Next Step’ marketing campaign (MNS).

BACKGROUND. TNFCU has developed a new messaging and marketing campaign called “My Next Step.” It highlights the ways that the credit union is with our Member-Owners throughout their entire financial journey, always prepared to help them get to the next step on that journey. As part of this campaign, we will be showcasing stories about individuals’ financial journeys and their MNS. To support these stories, we will be using professional portraiture taken in settings related specifically to that individual and their story. The settings may include (but are not limited to) area outdoor recreation sites, individuals homes or offices, local landmarks or businesses. 

SCOPE OF WORK. The photographer will capture images for use on all media channels including, but not limited to TNFCU’s website, social media accounts, promotional publications and advertisements, outreach efforts and for use in-branch and at events hosted by TNFCU. TNFCU will use these images primarily for MNS related materials including print ads, social media campaigns, and brochures, but may also use for additional TNFCU marketing, as needed.
