THE ELITE BRAND Experience

The Elite experience will allow us to go deeper into your brand’s image requirements. You will have more time for changes of clothes and creative, styled “set ups” . The majority of the brain storming and planning are done at our zoom meeting and the output from the shoot will give you a varied range of images to inspire you to tell the world about your business via your website, blogs and of course social media.

BEFORE YOUR BRANDING SHOOT

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 their online presence and showcase all aspects of their business. I can reveal their authenticity and values which in turn sets them apart to attract more clients and grow your business.  The bank of crafted images includes headshots, environmental shots, at work, at play and other images to help propel their business forward online for use on websites, social media, PR and media.

DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?

Yes I have public liability and also my photography equipment is fully insured.

HOW DO I BOOK A SHOOT WITH YOU?

Click on the BLACK button below “Book Your Shoot” 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.  I would love to hear from you!

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.

DO YOU GIVE GUIDANCE ON WHAT TO WEAR?

Yes, once a session fee is paid I will send you a form to fill out for my notes and I also send you a link “How to prepare for your Photography Session”. I will also schedule a Zoom call a few days before the shoot to go through everything and answer any questions you might have.

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?

My headshot morning takes 15 minutes per person, personal brand sessions can take up to 3 hours, corporate shoots can take between 6-10 people per hour.

CAN I BRING AN OUTFIT CHANGE?

On my short session there would be no time to change but certainly on the Personal brand session there would be. On corporate headshot shoots with multiple people there is no opportunity to have more than one outfit. We can discuss clothing at your pre-shoot consultation on Zoom.

HOW MANY PHOTOS DO YOU TAKE?

On the headshot morning around 30 images, personal brand around 750 and corporate headshots approx 15 per person. I then edit the images down to show you the best ones via your personal password protected gallery.

AFTER YOUR BRANDING SESSION

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE SESSION? HOW SOON DO WE SEE THE PICTURES?

Within a 3 working days you will see your images on a password protected gallery which is online for 7 days. To choose your favourite images there is a heart icon to click on which then encourages you to create a favourite list. Once you have informed me of your choices it takes 3 working days for the images to be sent through to you via Wetransfer.com.

I LOVE BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOS - DO YOU SHOW THEM IN BOTH COLOUR AND BLACK AND WHITE?

I only show the images in colour for you to choose but you will be given both colour and black and white versions of your final choice.
