ELEVATE your brand
I create an authentic storyboard of you and your business. I have worked with many successful businesses on branding photography for websites and social media, I understand how important, good imagery is for a business.
I won't produce stock images for you, together we create relatable content which reflects you, your brand and your ideal customer. I love the idea of creating a story of how you create your product and the objects, beings, places which inspire you.
Customers/clients are more likely to buy into a brand if they feel they're buying into an experience or lifestyle along with it. I will work with you to identify your target audience and how to target them through engaging imagery.
What to expect from a session
Video chat - We chat and discuss your brand, vision and marketing goals for the future.
Location Scouting - Its important for me to understand the locations and the light that affects them prior to a shoot, in order to maximise that for the day of your branding session. Strategic planning of an outdoor location is required so I can maximise the impact of the environment in your shoot, dawn and sunset shots are often worth the extra effort due to the light. Alternatively if we are shooting indoors, at your primary location of shooting then I will ask you to study the light ahead of our session and we will book a time where natural light is most abundant in your place of home.
Paperwork - Once the contract signed we then start planning your photoshoot, what to wear and shoot locations. I send you a prep guide on what to wear!
On shoot day - I capture clean, authentic photographs that tell your brand’s story, communicate your passion and show your dream clients who you really are.
Your gallery - Afterwards, I give you a bank of fresh portraits and lifestyle shots, perfect for your website, social media and marketing platforms. All photos are available for high res and web size digital download.
Next Steps - Unsure of how to maximise the impact of your images across platforms, I can manage your social media for you going forward or alternatively develop a bespoke media plan to make sure you are hitting your engagement/business targets.
Your website needs photos right?
You maybe eligible to claim you're photography expenses through the Online Trading Voucher. The scheme offers a grant of up to €2,500 (subject to match funding) to help micro-enterprises (10 employees of less) to develop their ecommerce capability, and in turn reap the positive enterprise impacts of trading online. It's recommended to touching base with your local LEO Office for more information on this voucher as the voucher is not redeemable through the photographer.
