Having an up to date photograph of yourself is essential, whether for social media or for your professional platforms. You are your brand, you are seen by the people you love, you work with you work for you spend time with.
If you are in the public eye, are the representative of your company then frequent fresh images are essential to remind your client base, your followers, your customers that you are out there.
If you look at any professional business persons instagram feed, you will see different photographs of them shared several times a month or more. This is brand awareness, this is self marketing and its essential in this world of so many faces being seen everywhere.

People, mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, siblings, friends and strangers, lovers and haters, we all share a connection we are humanity.
Photography of people is used for many reasons – from keeping memories of families as we grow, to capturing moments. From telling stories and teaching, to selling products and services.
People appear in most of the photographs taken each and every day, just look at facebook, instagram, LinkedIn and on the ever updated profile photographs and of course selfies.

My people photography includes:

  • Head shots
  • Portraits
  • Models – clothing / accessories / products
  • Lifestyle
  • Events

People photography helps tell your story

Who you are, and allows you to say what you are, and the incredibly important – why do do something.
People photography reinforces your followers who you are, it reminds you customers your loyal clients of what you do and how you do it.
People photography sells your products and services.

Good images are essential to help promote a lifestyle customers inspire to enjoy for a while.

On the human form

The human form is the ultimate stage to sell the products we wear, we adorn ourselves with or touch and use with our hands. From designer clothes, to hand made jewellery, the food and drinks we consume, models are used to sell us the things we want and desire.
