When you run your own business you pour your heart and soul into it and then throw in a large amount of blood, sweat and tears. It’s impossible to separate yourself from the job, you are one entity. Its life blood is your personality, passion and commitment.
This is why I firmly believe that the photographs of you that promote your business and tell people about you should capture this. A static head shot against a white backdrop is going to be hard pressed to do this. I much prefer an editorial style that gives you much more freedom to be yourself and communicate via a single image your absolute passion for what you do.
When Jenny Bent from Parsley Pie Kids Art & Craft Club asked me to do a photo shoot of her to celebrate 15 years in business, we both had a very clear idea of what we wanted to achieve and I was so pleased and excited that Jenny was willing to inject her personality and love for teaching art into the images.
What followed was a lively, energetic, hilarious and messy photo shoot in Jenny’s studio. She is a strong and striking character (I think you get that from the images!) and was a joy to photograph, willing to try anything and with lots of inventive ideas of her own.
We shot lots of different poses with a number of props so that Jenny has a good choice of images for her social media going forward.
