New Niche Stock Image Website, PhotoAbility, Offers Unique Photos of Models With Disabilities

No Comments 29 January 2014


Fort Lauderdal, Florida (PRWEB) January 28, 2014

Deborah Davis, co-owner of a new stock photography website with images of people of disabilities, became part of the disabled community when a car accident left her paralyzed from the chest down at 18 years old. The 49 year-old mother of two is announcing the launch of her new niche company, PhotoAbility, whose goal is to change how the public views, accepts and welcomes people with disabilities in mainstream society around the world.

PhotoAbility features a wide selection of stock images of authentic models with disabilities focused in lifestyle, leisure and travel settings. Images available include diverse stock photos of people in wheelchairs, amputees, the hearing and visually impaired and more. These photos capture the models enjoying playgrounds, going to prom, playing sports, shopping, working, relaxing at the beach, dating and getting married, traveling and much more.

Companies from all industries in need of original images that express a message of inclusion and diversity will find an array of high quality, rights managed and royalty free stock photos from which to choose for marketing and advertising campaigns.

PhotoAbility represents the one billion people with disabilities across the globe, and is one more fighting voice for the entire disabled community. This unique market, together with their family and friends, spends billions of dollars all over the world in travel and lifestyle sectors every year. However, this powerful and growing segment of society is rarely seen or acknowledged in advertising or editorial images. PhotoAbility has resolved to bring the disabled community back into mainstream media.

Increasing the positive imagery of persons with disabilities, and those who use mobility devices such as wheelchairs, canes, walkers, guide dogs, etc., will not only encourage further inclusion and accommodation, but will help to eliminate the fear and negative stereotyping that so often permeates all levels of society.

Industry leaders, graphic design and advertising professionals and publication editors can use PhotoAbility’s offering of high quality stock photos to incorporate a renewed message of inclusion into their advertisements and publications, extending a welcoming message to this significant market of people with disabilities, their friends and families.

“Stock image buyers can now find an exclusive source for creative, positive and refreshing imagery depicting individuals, from youths to seniors, who happen to have disabilities,” said Deborah Davis, co-founder of PhotoAbility.net. “These images can depict an inclusive message to customers and show how companies value the economic impact of customers with varying physical abilities.”

At PhotoAbility.net, visitors can browse the photo gallery, purchase images or contact the company to inquire about creating custom photos shoots representing specific interests and properties. PhotoAbility can provide anything from a general photo concept to a full marketing analysis, as well as models and advice on how to authentically and realistically portray people with disabilities in a natural setting.

Photographers are invited to submit their photos for inclusion and portfolio hosting in the PhotoAbility library, as well. All photos selected can earn up to 45 percent commission on each sale.

Not sure where to start? Browse the PhotoAbility gallery or visit the site’s “Editor’s Choice” page to review a selection of photographs that reflect the beauty and uniqueness of their stock photos. Photos can be viewed individually or as part of a convenient slide show.

Increasing the positive imagery of persons with disabilities and who use mobility devices such as wheelchairs, canes, walkers, guide dogs etc., will not only encourage further inclusion by increasing awareness that we want to participate and should be equally accommodated, but will help to eliminate the fear and negative stereotyping that so often permeates all levels of society.

We, through our image gallery, hope that by increasing awareness of the value in maintaining and making structural and attitudinal changes, it will encourage and sustain the participation of those with differing abilities around the world.

We encourage you, as industry leaders, and professionals who make editorial and creative decisions to take a good look at how you can incorporate inclusion images and a welcoming message to this significant market.

PhotoAbility was established in March 2012 by Bill Forrester and Deborah Davis with the goal of providing high quality, unique, non-medically oriented imagery of persons with disabilities for purchase by the advertising, marketing and media sectors. The Commercial Stock Image Library specializes in positive and “Inclusive images of people with a disability in leisure, lifestyle and travel settings.

The 2000+ inclusive images depicted in the PhotoAbility gallery are designed to impact attitudinal bias, change perception and provide motivation to eliminate and reduce social, structural and professional barriers. A wave of change reflected in popular media and advertising can make an impact on laws and attitudes around the globe, and on how many with differing abilities view themselves.

Coach and Minibus Conversion Specialists, PH Conversions, Launch New Website and Offer New Services

No Comments 29 January 2014


Manchester, Lancashire (PRWEB) January 28, 2014

The coach conversions firm was founded in February 2013 by Managing Director, Paul Hegedus.

The minibus conversion specialists are based at a well-equipped garage in Newton Heath, Manchester.

The PH Conversions team is made up of six skilled and experienced staff who have soon helped make the ambulance conversion business a success.

PH specialise in commercial vehicle conversions.

Services include: Taxi conversions, wheelchair accessible vehicle conversions and luxury minibus conversions.

In addition, the Newton Heath business also converts coaches and now provides an ambulance conversion service.

We provide a wide and varied range of services. We aim to please and always have the customers best interests at heart, said Paul.

We take enormous pride in all of our conversions and everything we do is aimed to accommodate the customers needs. Once we receive a new enquiry (or before starting a new project), we like to meet face-to-face (if possible) and discuss different designs and layouts for the vehicles interior and exterior, he added.

When Paul was asked what separates PH Conversions from the competition?

He answered, We are one of the most versatile commercial vehicle conversion companies in the UK. We provide almost all the services required. Our work is of the highest quality and we dont skimp on any materials used. The industry is very competitive but we refuse to be drawn in to using sub-standard materials to allow us to be more competitive.

PH Conversions trade nationally and locally.

Wherever possible we collect a customers vehicle and return it after the conversion, said Mr. Hegedus.

The Company has recently been awarded the ISO 9001:2008 Certificate of Registration and the COP Compliance certificate.

The new website has been designed and built by local web design company, Vizcom Design.

The platform used is the industry standard for CMS (Content Management System) websites, WordPress.

This type of website allows the user to create new pages, alter text and add images.

We have enjoyed working on this one as Paul was open to our ideas and already had an understanding of why a website appears in the search engine rankings, said Dan Robinson, founder of Vizcom Design.

Before we even begin to design a site, we recommend conducting keyword research. This information tells us what people are looking for in relation to the customers business. We then recommend choosing a suitable domain name which will help the site appear in the Google search results. We decided upon coachandminibusconversions.co.uk, added Dan.

The site is branded using PHs logo and features a rotating banner which advertises PHs services and unique selling points. A call back form has been added (top right) to make it easier for customers to contact PH Conversions out of working hours, explained Mr. Robinson.

Vizcom were recommended to us by the person who built our database. I also looked at who they had worked for before and decided to call them. After the first conversation, I decided to use them and employ their search engine services too, said Paul.

.

We hope to generate enquiries and customers from the new site and the feedback received has already been positive, added Paul.

A new ambulance conversion section has been added and this has been created to promote our new service and hopefully generate more leads. It is early days but we have had a few enquiries already. The site is fifth for minibus conversions and I hope Dan and his team can make sure we are top three for the phrase ambulance conversions, explained Paul.

.

We convert most types of ambulances including: Patient transport vehicles, emergency vehicles and mobile intensive care units. We build to BSEN 1789:2007+A1:2012 (CEN) standard, ended Paul.

ArmorActive Releases ADA Compliant iPad Enclosure Wall Mount

No Comments 29 January 2014


Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) January 29, 2014

ArmorActive designed the Wedge iPad wall mount for the end user and for their clients. The Wedge only protrudes 4 inches from the wall when an iPad enclosure is attached, minimizing obstruction of traffic for anyone walking by. This is especially beneficial to the visually impaired. Aside from being more space efficient, the Wedge is also designed with the optimal viewing angle for those in wheelchairs all the way up to the average american adult when mounted at the 48 ADA standard height.

We strive to meet the demands of our customer’s needs with every new product we develop. The Wedge is a response to the increasing demand for ADA compliance in our iPad kiosk solutions, said ArmorActive CMO, Nick Ames.

The smaller form factor of the Wedge tablet wall mount compliments 7 inch tablets, which are gaining traction with consumers and businesses alike. Along with being smaller, the Wedge is exceptionally easy to install. The back of the mount has a rectangle cut out, specially designed to fit over a standard dual plug electrical outlet and securely fastens through the electrical outlet box or outlet itself. The cavity inside the mount has the capacity to house a small power adapter and charging cable. Alternatively, this space can be used to securely store an ArmorActive Power over Ethernet (PoE) adapter. ArmorActive offers the Wedge in powder coated satin black and brushed stainless steel.

ArmorActive has also updated the design of their Sentinel iPad stand floor kiosk to meet ADA requirements. This new version of the Sentinel meets ADA requirements by reducing the height from its predecessor, making it more accessible to those using wheelchairs.

ArmorActive will be featuring their new tablet kiosk products, as an exclusive partner with Mobile Technology, Inc. (MTI), at this years Euroshop in Dusseldorf, Germany, February 16-20th. The booth is Stand A40, located in Hall 6.

About ArmorActive

ArmorActive specializes in purpose-built solutions for deploying tablet computers into any business landscape. Our goal is to provide the highest quality of service to every customer with our team of account managers who understand every phase of a tablet deployment, no matter how large or small the scale of the project.
