PROFESSIONAL

Headshots

WITH PERSONALITY

Your headshots or Professional Portraits literally form the inital impressions of you in a new client’s or employer’s mind, because this is how they are first meeting you.

This can be on LinkedIn or your website’s About or Meet the Team pages, or whichever profile of yours they happen to come across on the interwebs.

Yes your style matters – from refined and formal for corporates, to relaxed and authentic for small businesses – but it’s your expression, the way you are engaging with the camera, that really counts.

Getting you comfortable, natural and in your zone in front of the camera is one of my superpowers.

I bring my mobile studio to you for your ease and time efficiency, and cater to individuals, teams or large corporate groups.

[Sarah] completely nailed the brief and we couldn’t be happier with the result! It's very hard to get everyone to like their headshots but Sarah actually managed to achieve this.

COMMUNICATING YOUR OWN

Personal Brand

More than headshots, this gives us the chance to create a gallery of headshots and branding portraits, incorporating elements of your business. This can include location/environment, products, services and lifestyle settings that communicate who you are and what you do.

ELEVATE YOUR

Brand Photography

For a full image library of you and your products/services we have Brand Photography packages.

If you’re completely across your brand needs and know exactly what images you’re going for, our planning consultation will cover details and logistics.

For 90% of us, though, this is an opportunity to regroup and revitalise our Brands. I’m here to help you re-focus on your brand’s identity and vision, and refresh your online presence with consistency and visual purpose.

Our first session together is deep diving into your brand or business. We then plan our photography session. Once your images are delivered I help you use them to their full advantage across your website and social media.

I very much enjoyed Sarah’s course. It is challenging material for me but she is extremely patient, well organised and so helpful. A very positive experience.

CUSTOMISED TUITION IN

Canva & Adobe

1-1, GROUPS OR ONLINE

1-to-1 Canva or Photoshop lessons are included in various Brand Photography packages, and also available as a standalone option, either remotely (online from anywhere in the world) or in person (Sydney & Brisbane).

I help you get the very best out of your Brand’s image library, design and use professional templates, and set up an easy system for social media.

For over 10 years I’ve been teaching classes in image editing and graphics. During this time, feedback from students and my observations in class have led me to develop a curriculum and method of teaching that demystifies the software and gives you the space and opportunity to have fun with the creative process and be more productive.

My main motivation is to help you enjoy using these tools. The first key is getting you comfortable with the software and workflow. From there, the sky’s the limit.

Workplace training for teams is also available. Quite a few of my students find themselves having to extend their skillset to include software like Canva to contribute to the company social media and marketing. When more than one person is responsible for content creation, consistency is often an issue.

For help with workflow, software skills and design consistency please contact me to discuss your options.

TURNING MY LENS TO THE BUSINESS OF THINGS AND

THE THINGS THAT HELP OUR BUSINESSES GROW

THIS IS LITERALLY ABOUT THE

Big Picture

OF YOUR BUSINESS

In June 2023 there were over 2.5 Million small businesses in Australia, 60% of which did not have employees beyond the business owners.*

 

This helps to explain why there’s so much digital noise out there around businesses.

We need to get focused and make it easier for our customers to find and engage with us.

 

But remember, you’re not competing with 2.5 million small businesses. You just need to be found by your people, your ideal clients.

 

And with one glance they need to be able to see who you are and how you can help them.

 

This is where clarity and quality in your branding photography and headshots is so valuable.

COMMUNICATING YOUR OWN

brand story

I used to send out silent wishes for someone to materialise and clear some of the business to-do list for me.

 

While I may not have ALL the answers to business, the universe and everything, I most definitely can help you and your brand stand out and communicate clearly.

And I can help you strategise and easily systemise the creation of your marketing content, saving you hours of your valuable time, and giving you extra confidence in how you and your business are presented on your website, social media and business networks.

AS I'M SURE YOU'VE NOTICED, THIS WEBSITE IS CURRENTLY

under construction

My new mantra, and one that I encourage my clients to try, is DONE IS BETTER THAN PERFECT.

 

A live audience does wonders to motivate progress, too. I’ve already cut down my second-guessing by at least 30%. Time saving right there!

This should be up and running in no time at all.
