For over 12 years, I have been working with women to develop their personal branding images, which I used to refer to as “women in business” photography even before the term “personal branding photography” became popular.
My acquaintance with Dr Terry dates back several years when I was collaborating with a woman named Carlie on her book featuring women entrepreneurs in London, and I photographed Dr Terry for the book. Since then, I’ve had the pleasure of working with her twice more, and she is a joy to work with.
Dr Terry is a Skin, Aesthetic & Hormone Doctor, and her Instagram account is a fantastic source of informative content. Check out her website at https://drterryloong.com.
Regardless of whether it’s a mini branding shoot or a three-hour package, all branding shoots require careful planning to ensure that we have a cohesive story, outfits, and props for a seamless shoot.
During the latter part of the photo session with Dr Terry, the focus was on promoting health and well-being. Through imagery, I wanted to show the significance of taking care of ourselves through proper nutrition, regular exercise, and meditation, and how these practices can positively affect all aspects of our lives. As Dr Terry says “Our skin & body instinctively knows how to heal. We just need to provide it with the right information and create a nurturing environment.”
I captured photos of her while she practiced yoga, prepared her traditional Chinese soup filled with numerous antioxidants, and demonstrated her skincare regime.
These images were about her working at home, journaling which I know she is a big believer in the benefits and also taking time out of the day to be quiet and away from her busy life. As Dr Terry says, “Slowing down is the first step to listening to what your body needs. It is difficult to heal when you’re rushing around.”
My branding shoots start with mini shoots, ranging to a bespoke 3-hour shoot which is the one that Dr Terry opted for. It is one of the most popular ways of creating a bank of bespoke, beautiful imagery that can be used in many ways for social media, blogs and websites.
