BEFORE YOUR PERSONAL BRAND SHOOT
click on + for answer
WHAT IS A PERSONAL BRAND SHOOT?
The Personal Brand photography experience shoot is tailored to each individual entrepreneur. My purpose is to provide particularly women entrepreneurs with bespoke imagery that helps and empowers them to raise thier online presence and showcase all aspects of their business. I can reveal their authenticiy and values which in turn sets them apart to attract more clients and grow your business. The bank of crafted images includes headshots, enviromental shots, at work, at play and other images to help propel their business forward online for use on websites, social media, PR and media.
WHAT PROVISIONS WITH COVID - 19 HAVE YOU PUT IN PLACE?
The majority of my headshot client’s shoots are taking place outside and I work to the present distance guidelines of 1 metre distance. I do not wear a mask as I find that people react naturally to my expressions and I have had what is COVID-19 back in March 2020 and have been double vaccinated.
WHAT IS YOUR RISK ASSESSMENT FOR COVID?
I am only shooting once a day and that takes place first thing in the morning. I do not stop on my way to the shoot and make sure that shoes and clothes are clean and not previously worn the previous day.
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
Yes I have public liability and also my photography equipment is fully insured.
DO YOU GIVE GUIDANCE ON WHAT TO WEAR?
Yes, once a deposit is paid I will send you a detailed questionaire about your brand and also a what to wear guide. At our planning Zoom call I can go through with you your choices of clothes and accessories for the shoot.
HOW DO A BOOK A SHOOT WITH YOU?
Click on the BLUE button below “Book Your Session” and it will take you to my Contact page and you can decide whether you want to email, fill out the website form or just give me a call. We would then book a discovery call so you can find out more of how I work and tailor a shoot for you personal requirements! Get in touch to find out more!
WHAT DAYS / TIMES DO YOU WORK?
I usually allocate up to 3 days a week which are shoot days and these are Tuesday-Thursday. All my shoots take place on mornings as I find that we are all at our best then.
THE PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION ITSELF
I HATE HAVING MY PHOTO TAKEN - HOW CAN YOU HELP ME?
You are not alone! 95% of my adult clients hate having their photo taken. As an expereinced photographer with 13 years in the business I know how to make you feel comfortable and at ease. I will photograph you in a flattering way as well as showing you the back of the camera from time to time to give you confidence – which from experience that always helps and I see my client’s shoulders relax when they realise that they do “look ok”. Random iPhone photos of you that have been taken by friends are far removed from the beautiful images that I can take of you.
WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS ON THE DAY?
I would have kept an eye on all my weather apps in addition we would have reserved a back up day “just in case”. For a weekday outdoor session we have another day booked as a back up.
HOW LONG DOES A SHOOT TAKE?
I have a range of packages which I tailor to the invidual’s requirements and budget. The Personal Brand shoots can take anything from 1 to 4 hours and we pack so much into that time – I would have put together a schedule together to ensure we can cover everything that you need for your online requirements.
CAN I BRING AN OUTFIT CHANGE?
On the 3 hour brand photography shoot there is usually 3-4 changes of clothes. We can discuss clothing at your pre-shoot consultation on Zoom.
HOW MANY PHOTOS DO YOU TAKE?
I take around around 800 on the day but then edit down to only the best images for you.
AFTER YOUR PERSONAL BRAND SESSION
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE SESSION? HOW SOON DO WE SEE THE PICTURES?
I download and back up straight after the shoot and I will have the images ready for you within 10 working days but a sneak peak is sent out on social media though a few days before to give you an idea of the final results. The final images are sent to you you via Wetransfer.com. I will also put the final images online for you so that you can show friends and family and the any website designers that are involved in order for them to download directly from the website instead of having to ask you for the files.
I LOVE BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOS - DO YOU SHOW THEM IN BOTH COLOUR AND BLACK AND WHITE?
You will have both colour and black and white versions of your images.
