Shots of you looking into the camera create trust by inviting the viewer to make eye contact, so it is important to have at least one of these images on your website and social media. Candid shots on the other hand, showing you with your products or simply in your day-to-day work flow, make great regular content for your social media because your viewers can relate to them and are intrigued to see more.
Meet Joana Meneses - A Personal Stylist & Confidence Coach
Joana was looking to work with me on a regular basis. Her goal was to be able to show up online consistently and show of her styling suggestions to her clients and followers in a professional manner.
The other day I had a meeting with a potential client to discuss her headshot and personal brand photoshoot.
In her first email she confessed; she never had professional headshots done before. I looked up her website and couldn't find any photos of her, not even on her about me page, which is a no-no for me as a personal brand photographer.
We started talking about personal brand photography because she mentioned some interest in it in her email but wasn't sure where she would use the images.
Easter is over and of course I had too much chocolate and too many Hot Cross Buns over the past 4 days. I also ate more meat than usual and I can feel my body needs a break. Now might be a good time to try all the vegetarian dishes I saved on Pinterest. :D
Before the Easter holiday I did a lifestyle/ personal brand photo shoot with the absolutely amazing Imogen Wood. Imogen is an incredible artist, she specialises in dog illustrations but her talent is so versatile and on her Instagram @imogenwoodillustrations you will find a mix of lifestyle photographs and lots of other incredible artwork.
