Visual branding creates imagery that inspires your audience and you, the business owner.
Your business is your passion and you want to be able to convey it to the world in a way that connects with those around you. I often hear from business owners that they struggle the most with how to bring their business to life visually. All it takes is a little exploration via an initial chat so that I can understand what you are looking for. These initial meetings are incredibly exciting as I see your passion unfold and we begin to curate your new visual direction.
These sessions can be an individual, seasonal or bi-anual sessions. We can tailor it to you. Please enjoy the galleries below and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you are keen to know more.
Would you like to create a personal connection with your audience or are you looking to be inspirational, factual, educational, or simply promotional? We can shoot products to portraits and by exploring your needs we can get to the heart of your brand so that we can move forward in the right direction.
You may envisage a three-colour branding strategy or have one colour from your logo that you’d like to stick to. We may need to hire models in, oder backdrops or simply shoot the team in situ. We will work out a step by step plan to create the optimal photoshoot for your branding.
The shoot will be entirely tailored to you. Often, they are split in to two sessions: products and lifestyle or day and night, for example. It can be as simple as you in your shop or a bigger affair through hiring Make Up Artists, Hair Stylists and even set designers to curate the very best set of images for you and your business
Post – shoot, we can curate and fine tune your chosen images together. I’ll then professionally edit and retouch the photographs and send you a gallery of both high-resolution and social-media size downloads. Finally, you can share your new look and enjoy an exciting, engaging connection with your audience.
