I often get asked what a 'Personal Branding' shoot is; it’s a series of images from one portrait session that is typically popular for people wanting a selection of branding images for marketing purposes. Clothing, lighting & location recommendations are given based on the intention for the session. I work with the client to ensure images meet specific requirements in regards to website use, sizing, and colour theory. Before the session, a meeting is held to talk through ideas & make sure I am on the same page as the client. Nerves are normal when being photographed... Cine (pictured) was a little nervous. We had not worked together before. I feel its my duty to help extract the emotion that is underlying. I work intuitively coupled with direct guidance. It is a dance I truly love; the slow unraveling of a person before my lens... Often it is a transformative experience for both the client and myself, and an honour I don’t take for granted. Thank you, Cine for dancing in the light with me.
Below are images that resulted from Cine's portrait session.
After the shoot I was invited to sit around the fire with Cine and her friends. It was such a beautiful experience. I couldn't help but take a few snaps to capture the magic.
