Branding Photo shoot for Author Alicia Eaton
Alicia Eaton, an Emotional Wellbeing practitioner and best-selling author, specialises in helping children. She contacted me because she needed an up-to-date portrait for her new book – and a selection of new images for her website and for marketing purposes. In short, this mixture of portrait and commercial photography has become known as ‘Personal Branding Photography’.
Naturally, before a shoot like this, I always consult my clients to find out more about their business. What’s more, it’s a chance to bounce ideas around and to discuss a concept for the photo session itself.
Alicia wanted her images to have a contemporary lifestyle feel that reflected her personality. For this reason, we agreed her beautiful home would make an ideal backdrop. She writes in her relaxing home office, surrounded by her extensive library and research materials – and with dog Dante for company.
I always incorporate into my photographs those little details that capture the sitter’s personality and make the business what it is. For example, it could be a picture on the wall or a little jug of flowers on the table. To sum up, I never forget that every branding photo session I do is as unique as the business itself.
With a background in photo journalism, I am very flexible about the location for your photo shoot. The images can be taken almost anywhere – at your home, office, shop, favourite venue, or outdoors. Also, I have a versatile studio space where I can set up studio lights for a more formal studio setting. On the other hand, I can use the natural light inside and outside for more contemporary lifestyle images and product shots.
I love travelling and languages and offer personal branding shoots in Germany, France and Spain, where I speak the languages – and am also happy to travel further.
