Nicola Blackwood - Blackwood Interiors, Edinburgh
You're doing your best work, and you've crafted an amazing business which is ready to serve - but no matter what you do, the right people just aren't finding you. Instead, you feel drowned out and undercut by your competition. What you do is fantastic, but you can't get your ideal clients to notice it.
So you turn to your website and social media - but you need to figure out what to share and how. Maybe you don't have any images, so you rely on boring stock images to 'fill a space', images which don't reflect your personality or values. Or maybe the photos you do have lack any character. They're bland, generic - looking like everyone else out there. Perhaps your profile picture makes you cringe - and selfies are no longer cutting it.
Your online presence is a bit 'bleurgh' - lacking in personality and impact.
A bank of unique, stand-out imagery available whenever and wherever you need it; for your website, social media profiles, print, PR and more. Images that help your target audience get to like you, see what is so brilliant about what you do, and ultimately trust you enough to buy from you.
Creative photography that you're proud to display to the world – that boost your confidence and put you streets ahead of your competition.
Business brand photography with me is about WAY more than just the photographs or professional headshots. 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. We'll also review your marketing strategy (or create one if you don't have one) to clarify what we need your photos and film to do for you.
We'll then come up with a detailed plan to ensure that your professional photography and film session runs smoothly, is fun and leaves you with hugely effective imagery.
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.
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.These images will empower you, leaving you bursting to get out there any showcase your business.

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.
