Brand and Editorial Photography


What your commercial shoot will look like...

Hi there and welcome,

I really do enjoy Brand and Editorial Photography - shoots for small businesses and personal branding.  They have become my guilty pleasure, allowing me to utilise my knowledge and passion gained from my studies in Design...

If you have arrived here from the page that gives a few words about a commercial shoot for your business or personal branding, you may be wondering what a commercial shoot will me actually looks like and what is involved.  I thought I would write a few words here to give you an insight as to what actually goes on...

Whether you are a new business just starting out or an established business needing a brand update, then I would love to work with you,  With shoots from 2 hours to a full day, I offer a pre shoot consultation including optional creative direction.  We will work to build you a brand image library, consisting of relaxed portraits, images of any processes and workspaces, products and additional images for marketing and editorial pieces.

Once you have booked your shoot and viewing, this is an overview of the stages:

PRE SHOOT CONSULTATION by Skype, photo or over coffee somewhere.  This is where we will chat about your shoot requirements - whether you need portrait, shots of your space, product, editorial.  Whether you will need optional Creative Direction or Hair and make up.  

We will find a relaxed environment for your portrait - indoors or out, your place or my studio.



Maybe it is here we shall discuss any ambient media you may be needing from my existing portfolio or content creation for you in my studio - this may be a separate, stand alone shoot at my studio where you are not present.  This may be exactly what you are looking for and no more.

We shall go through questions such as what's your style, your story, locations, we shall create a shoot list and discuss any props and styling needed.

DELIVERY OF SHOOT SCHEDULE to help you on the day. This is a guide only, and not a minute by minute account

THE SHOOT will become less daunting, smoother because we have had a thorough Pre shoot consultation.  This will leave us to pack much more into your shoot. 

THE VIEWING of your images will generally be at my studio.  After I have processed and prepared your curated collection. your images will be presented to you in their end form - in print as a large format contact sheet or on screen as a slideshow.   It is here that we will work together to make the final selection.

DELIVERY OF IMAGES  The final images will be delivered in whatever form is needed.  Digitally both high resolution for print and low resolution for screen and as framed prints if needed and chosen. 

Hope this helps...
