In today’s world, standing out and showing how you are different can seem so difficult. And then there’s the question of building trust… people being able to see your face and get a sense of your business through that image, plays a huge part in attracting your target client.
But what if you really don’t like having your photo taken? This is where I come in.
As someone who is camera-shy myself, I know exactly how you feel and that’s why I do things differently. I don’t have a one-size-fits-all process that I push you through, so I don’t put you in unnatural poses or make you feel awkward. I make sure you’re comfortable with what happens in the photoshoot, as I pay extra care and attention to what works for you.
It’s all about giving you the best experience and the best images, so you can become more visible and reach more clients.
I have 3 packages to choose from: Not just a Headshot, Business Branding Photoshoot and Brand Story Photofilms. Have a look and see which one works for where you are. Or if you’re not sure, contact me for a chat.
Not just a Headshot – from £175
Three great portraits, that go beyond a headshot, to show your personality and connect with your audience.
This package is great for:
- Starting out
- Relaunching your business
- A refresh
- Something’s changed
- Your new book or podcast
- A different hairstyle
- Or a quick update between your Business Branding photoshoots
“What a fabulous photo shoot with Helen. She was calm and fun, so it was a really stress free, enjoyable experience.”
During our hour together we’ll get clear on where you want to use the photos, how best they can represent you and your brand, so that you connect with your target customer, all while making sure you feel comfortable.
By the end of our time working together you’ll have a choice of 3 authentic, natural, professional portraits that you’re really excited to use and share.
Contact me if you have more than one person to be photographed.
Business Branding Photoshoot – from £565
– for people who want to elevate their visual presence
A Business Branding Photoshoot is for you if you want to elevate your visual presence – if you really want to up your game with the right images for your website and social media.
Your brand is more than just your business, it’s your personality, your values and the unique way you do things.
With this package you can have visual content that consistently reflects and enhances your brand’s identity across your various marketing channels.
“You are a superstar, Helen. I absolutely love the professional photos you did for me!”
You can have a whole range of beautiful, high-quality images professionally-taken specially for your business to let your values shine through to connect with people, so that they understand, trust and remember your brand.
It goes beyond showcasing products or services; together we create a visual narrative that resonates with your target audience.
This storytelling aspect showcases the human side of your business, making you more approachable, creating a connection with your clients, helping them relate to your brand on a more personal level. People really love seeing those real images of you in your studio or engaging with your clients.
Wouldn’t it be brilliant for your photos to do some of the heavy-lifting for you in marketing your business on your website and social media. With a range of images in your back pocket, there’ll be no more scrabbling around to get the right image for your podcast interview and you’ll have the ideal eye-catching photo ready when you need to supply one for a bio or media feature.
It’s all about being authentic, becoming visible in your business and attracting your ideal clients.
Brand Story Photofilms – from £685
A Brand Story Photofilm is different, dynamic and immediately accessible to your target market
– it’s great for people who don’t like being videoed!
Brand Story Photofilms are great if you want to take advantage of everything video can achieve, but feel awkward or uncomfortable having to face the video camera. If you hate the feeling of being put on the spot being videoed and aren’t sure you can remember off the top of your head everything you want to say, I can help.
Brand Story Photofilms give you all the power of video without the pain!
A Brand Story Photofilm is different, dynamic and immediately accessible to your target market. It is so much more than a slideshow of images with audio attached. It is a different and unique way of promoting your business and will help you stand out. You get a closer connection with viewers than from photos alone. It gives people a really good insight into how you work, so they can assess whether you are the right person to help them.
Being able to get your personality across to your potential clients in a way that is easy for them and comfortable for you, can make a massive difference to your business growth and referrals. Brand Story Photofilms can really help with this.
Let’s face it, none of us would be on social media if we didn’t have to be. We are all on there because that’s the way we do business nowadays and the same is true of video. The question is how can we do it in a way that’s as pain-free as possible, but gets the reaction and connection to our audience that we want? That’s where Brand Story Photofilms come in.
For example, here’s the one I created for Janet Dowling, Clinical Hynotherapist, showcasing her work.
She wanted to let people know the kinds of issues that she can help with, to show potential clients what the process of a hypnotherapy session with her involves and to give a bit of an insight into Janet, the person.
Brand Story Photofilms are really versatile and can be used for so many things. Plus… at end of the process you receive your Brand Story Photofilm as an MP4 file plus all the photos from the photofilm.
Many clients use them on their websites, as they are particularly good for encouraging people to linger longer on their website, which is great for the algorithms.
A popular use is posting them on different social media platforms, as we all know how nearly all of the platforms seem to favour video above all other content.
“I am really blown away. Every time I watch it, I can’t believe it’s me.”
Other ways my clients have used their Brand Story Photofilms include:
- Crowdfunding for a book
- An introduction to a presentation
- At their exhibition stand – shown on a continuous loop
- An email newsletter
- To raise awareness and help fundraise for a good cause (Many of you will have see the Photofilm I created for Orion’s autism assistance dog)
So if you want to improve your shop window, smarten up your marketing game, do video in a way that feels comfortable for you and aligned with how you want to be perceived by your audience, a Brand Story Photofilm might be a great thing for you to invest in for your business.
