On location styling shoot – Lifestyle Photography

Lifestyle Photography Sessions for portrait, website, product shoots.

A relaxed, garden-tea inspired set up for a portrait client’s special lifestyle photography session sets the scene for a beautiful on location styling shoot.

When photographing at my home studio our creativity and styling really come to the fore.  I have unique, stylish and contemporary props and set ups to create beautiful looks for portrait, website & socials, and product photography sessions.

Lifestyle photography sessions and styling shoots are a great way to lend your portrait session a relaxed vibe.  And a relaxed you means fabulous images!

Thanks to Original Occasion for the shimmery chandelier & tea lights – they caught the light beautifully, no doubt my client will shine!

Branding and Headshots – The Resumé Originated 5 Centuries Ago – But Times Are A Changing…

Personal Branding for Resumé & C.V.

Leonardo Da Vinci is accredited with the origin of the resumé.  And in this era of immediate visual communication, social media, & web presence, your C.V. is as crucial as ever. An engaging C.V. is your number one priority to make an impression and stand out in the job market.

Branding and Headshot Photographs

Professional branding and headshot photography is your key to success.  Online engagement demands professional images.

“It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them.

They went out and happened to things.”         

                                                                                                   Leonardo Da Vinci

According to Forbes Magazine, times have changed in even the most recent past, and so too should your C.V.

Selling your personal brand.

Approaching your C.V. like a marketing document and selling your ‘personal brand’ is what it’s all about.

Your image, and how it represents your personal brand is as valuable in marketing yourself, as it is in business.

Including a professional photograph on your resumé adds value, and should give prospective employers or recruitment agents an accurate idea of who you are, how you want to be perceived, and what the experience of working with you might be like.

Sound like a big ask from a photograph?

With a Masters in Business Communications and as an accredited professional photographer, helping with personal branding, reviewing C.V’s, writing content, and styling & creating professional images that convey your ‘personal brand’, as Forbes put it, is the perfect fit for me.

I had the absolute pleasure of working with this motivated client yesterday, to create her professional images for her C.V.

I can’t wait to hear how she sets about ‘making things happen’ for herself.  What an asset to any office and business this woman is – the warmth, connection, professionalism, and approachability she exudes is the real deal!

Friday afternoon’s deluge didn’t dampen the enthusiasm and professionalism of this lovely client.  Teresa arrived for her Corporate Branding Headshot session with an armful of outfits and some props in tow.

Creativity and attention-to-detail were the order of the day.  This real estate expert in her field exuded the professionalism, approachability, and attentiveness she’s become known for.

She breezed through the branding and headshot photo session with a wide smile and mountains of enthusiasm.

Fine Art Photography + Photos + Beeswax + Pigment = AMAZING!!!

Photographic Fine Art Originals and Prints

If you love colour & texture, & love the tactile nature of printed photographic images, then I think you’re going to just l-o-v-e my fine art works.  Originals and fine art prints available to buy.

A melding of ancient & modern techniques, I encapsulate my images in a beeswax-based medium originating from ancient Egypt & Greece.

I use paints, inks & collage to fuse my photographs in a beautiful patina.  Each piece is created from unique treatments, techniques, &  the outcome is unable to be fully managed or controlled.  Just like original film photography & image developing. You never know just how a work will turn out. Instinctive, inspired, spontaneous, richly layered,  & ethereal.   Fine Art.

Each part of my creativity and life as a photographer and an artist seems to meld when I work in these mediums. Photography & Fine Art together forming something purely original.

For Lovers of Interior Design

I’ve collated photographs of my artworks into a magazine, here, for you to enjoy – there’s something for everyone – portraits, landscape, interiors, abstracts.  Take a look.  If you see an art work that you would love to make your own, please get in touch.

As lavishly as the art pieces photograph, actually touching the gorgeous beeswax patina & looking into the multi-layers of mediums in each piece is truly, truly beautiful.

And just imagine having your contemporary portraits, a more conceptual arty portrait, or a decorative piece featuring something meaningful to you, as your own bespoke original art work.  My photographic images work beautifully when handcrafted into 3 dimensional original one-of-a-kind art works…. Can you tell this is my absolute ideal  creative medium to play with!  A combo of my 2 creative passions!  Originals and fine art prints available to make your own.
