Brand building photography

Build a strong brand

To build a brand, you need a strong visual image.

With bespoke photography, you will stand out from the crowd and your customers will be able to understand what makes you different.

Whether you are looking for images to support a website redesign, your latest marketing campaign or your social media activity, these photographs will tell a strong and consistent story across all your platforms. 

I have worked with many clients who have said: “my photo shoot has literally been a game changer”, commenting that they “should have done it sooner” or how much easier their marketing is with a bespoke gallery.

Brand shoot, product or bespoke photography – now it’s your turn.

Preparation is key


On your brand photo shoot, we will create a collection of photographs that 1. look great, 2. they tell your business brand story and 3. they will help you to achieve your next business goal.

When we think about your shoot, we will look at your logo and colours, your business values, your ideal clients, the products/services you offer and what they cost and what your objectives are.

From this we can create fully bespoke shot list that will portray you and your business in the right light and talk to your ideal customers.

Then when you receive your photographs, you already know how and where you want to use them, making it really easy to start putting your plans into place.

I want you to get the most out of your shoot and so the time we put in together beforehand, ensuring we have the right plans in place, ensures the final results deliver all you hoped for and more.

Annika Grizzell - Wealth Management Consultant

I needed to refresh my library of personal brand photos and also I have a new course to launch, for which I needed photos. I'm so glad I booked a shoot with Elizabeth, she is so knowledgeable and took time to plan with me beforehand the photos we'd take, my brand themes, colours and the outfits I'd wear. I'm so thrilled with the finished photos! It is absolutely worth the investment and I'm so glad I did it.
