Business and Personal Brand Photography in Edinburgh

Brand Photography by Rebecca Holmes

I help driven, warm-hearted, community-minded businesses and entrepreneurs to stand out by creating on-brand creative photography and film which raises their visibility and attracts their ideal clients. 

I take the stress out of getting your photograph taken – I'm the perfect photographer for photo-avoiders!! My superpower is helping people feel great about being in front of the camera. I LISTEN to your fears, help you work through them, then gently guide you through every step of a relaxed and easy photography session. 

Everyone who works with me says it was MUCH easier, and WAY more enjoyable than they expected. 

I'll help give you the confidence to make your business stand out from your competitors. 

best photos you will ever have
Rebecca is a consummate professional who makes being photographed a relaxing experience. Rebecca turns what could be a dry photo shoot into an engaging and fun occasion. I would highly recommend Rebecca whatever the circumstances – work, school, wedding or just because you want the best photos you will ever have.

Why you need brand photography

Are you tired of feeling like you aren't being seen by potential customers?

Do you regularly search for images to post on social media but have no idea what to post or how? Are you sick of using stock images that don't accurately reflect who you are and what you do? Is the thought of using a selfie as your profile picture making you cringe?

Being a business owner is hard enough without having to come up with professional images to attract new customers! 

Wouldn't it be great if you had a bank of on-brand photographs which effectively communicate who you are, what you do, and why you do what you do?

Beautiful imagery that you can dip into whenever you need, for your website, social media profiles and more. Images that help your customers come to know, like and trust you – so that they'll buy from you? Photographs that you're proud to display to the world – that make you more confident and help you stand out from your competition. 

Why your business needs brand photography

Images play a crucial role in how you portray your business to your customers and clients, and in how potential clients see you. We all shop with our eyes and – rightly or wrongly – often decide who to buy from based on first impressions.

We are bombarded by images every day so the photographs you use need to;

 

Tell the story of your business
Clearly communicate what you have to offer
Show your customers why they should buy your product/service over your competitors
Enhance your online presence
Be IMPACTFUL, so that they'll stop your customers' scrolling, and encourage them to get in touch with you.
Tell the story of YOU! Authenticity is key in business – the more we can show you, in your business, doing what you love – the more customers will interact with you. You are part of your brand! If you're a solo entrepreneur - you ARE your brand! Personal branding photography is essential!

Business photography isn't just about the photography

Business branding photography with me is about WAY more than just the photographs. It's a whole experience. It's about enhancing your business. 

The minute you choose to work with me, I'll be doing everything I can to help your business succeed.

Ahead of your session, we'll work together to get really clear on what your brand is, what you're trying to communicate, and the most effective way to do it. We'll review your current brand presence, especially online, and see how it can be improved. Then come up with a detailed plan to make sure that your brand photography and film session runs smoothly, is fun and leaves you with imagery that's hugely effective. 

And after the photography session? I won't leave you wondering what to do with all those images! We'll meet again so I can help you plan how to use your new images, and help you with any of the logistics e.g. scheduling, resizing etc. 


Natural, relaxed, fun photography... Not scary!

One of my superpowers is helping people to feel better about being in front of the camera. As a recovering photo-avoider myself I get how difficult it can be to put yourself forward to be seen in your business. Sessions with me are calm, relaxed... And yes – FUN! It is really important to me that you enjoy the process.

I have a lot of experience in helping the photo shy. From a calming cuppa before we get started (or gin if it's warranted!), to giving you affirmations to practice ahead of your session... I'll never EVER leave you feeling awkward or weird... Or wondering what to do with your hands! Yes, this is lifestyle photography, but that doesn't mean you don't get any direction!

Every. Single. Client. I work with comes away saying how much they enjoyed it – even if they'd been absolutely petrified about being on camera before we started.

SO WHAT ABOUT FILM THEN? YOU'RE A PHOTOGRAPHER AND A FILM-MAKER?

I'm a hybrid photographer, meaning that when I'm photographing I can also regularly capture snippets of film.

Using video in marketing is becoming increasingly important. Video is a fantastic way to quickly communicate to your customers who you are and what you do.

Video builds trust WAY quicker than images alone.

As part of your session, we can include film of you at work, interacting with customers, creating products. We can also include an interview describing what you do or use a simple voice-over. 

Here's an example of a small film I made for Nicola at Blackwood Interiors

thoroughly recommend

I was very nervous before I met up with Rebecca as loathe being in front of the camera even in casual settings. But I needed to get professional photos done for my online business. Rebecca was very understanding and could tell I was terrified, so took me outside to a beautiful location where I could really relax rather than literally having the spotlight on me in a studio. Everyone has been wowed by the results and I’m absolutely thrilled because they are so different to what everyone else is showing up with – so I’d thoroughly recommend Rebecca to anyone who feels a bit nervous.’

Why I do what I do

I'm Rebecca Holmes, I'm an award-winning photographer of over two decades. I'm also a mum, a try-hard gardener, musician, foodie and a lover of great Scottish gin. 

I'm an Aussie who married a Scot and settled here in beautiful Scotland where I now raise my three daughters. 

In my life, I've owned and managed several businesses – in the creative arts, hospitality, holistic therapies and finance. I bring this wealth of experience with me as I work with all of my brand photography clients. 

Working with businesses gives me a huge buzz. I enjoy getting to know a brand's story, values and mission, then translating that into creative photography and film. 

I get a wonderful kick of joy watching other business owners feel more confident as a result of great photography. Watching them show up and be seen doing what they're passionate about, is a hugely rewarding. 

Fellow photographer, Victoria Rose, came to me in need of a full brand photography session. Victoria was after a full set of images that showed her artistic, creative, quirky self. She wanted something different from everyone else, something that would stand her apart from her competition. The session had to include gorgeous fashion, the backdrop of wonderful Glasgow, loads of books, her favourite teddy and plenty of warm and relaxed expressions.
