When selfies just don’t cut the mustard…

You’re in business - you’re an entrepreneur, or maybe you’re a performer. You know that in this highly visual world, quality photography is imperative to the impact you and your business has. You need to make an impression but you know that a selfie just isn’t going to cut the mustard! (How do you even cut mustard, anyway?)

But the thought of being yourself in front of a camera is enough to make you run a mile!?

Well, I have news for you! I firmly believe that a personal branding photo-shoot should be…

Empowering, joyful, creative, relaxed, fun, collaborative – a celebration of you and your business.

And there’s absolutely no reason why it can’t be all of the above, for you. You just need a photographer who will listen to both your aspirations and your fears, help you get clear on what you want to say to the world, eek out the best version of you and then design a tailor-made shoot to suit.

“My photo shoot with Karina was a fantastic experience from start to finish. Karina has a real talent for interpreting the ambience of a setting and the exact character of a client to come up with something original and unique. Professional yet friendly throughout, Karina was able to put my nerves and self-consciousness at ease and made the whole experience positive and fun.” – Faye
