It takes two-tenths of a second for your market to make an impression of you based on the first photograph they see of you (I cannot even blink that fast). The wrong impression will mean they click out, the right will mean they will read on.
There’s something really special about the energy of a personal branding shoot when an entrepreneur has chosen to step up to be the face of their business; when they stop hiding behind a business name and allow their audience to see the person who is offering the products and services.
What they are really doing is owning their spot in their industry.
For this type of shoot, your photographs need to symbolise your new way forward; to be a reflection of not who you were, but who you are now.
They need to give your potential clients an insight into your personality, your values and what it’d be like working with you. These photos must be authentic. Unposed. Unmanufactured.
Everything from the creative direction, styling, props, location, the body language and the richness of the emotion in the shots, need to capture your true essence.
When all the elements fall into place, thecollection of the photographs are undeniably magical.
The whole team will be provided for your shoot:
Creative Director (me)
Hair and Make-Up Artist
We do not limit the number of photographs you can choose from for your shoot (on average, our clients secure between 75 - 150 shots). You will be presented with a series of edited shots for your website and marketing material, plus a collection of shots to use on your social media platforms.
ALEX TULLIO | CEO - CHIEF EVOLUTION OFFICER
"Working with Colette and her team has been brilliant. Not only do you feel like you are in the hands of absolute professionals, you also feel like you are one of the family. Every step of the way I have felt that Colette and her team have been totally invested in my success. The day we shot the photos was so much fun. This is a team of professionals that put you at ease, which makes all the difference to the end result. One of the most consistent reactions I have had since launching my website and my new brand is that it is so reflective of me and captures my personality. I couldn’t be happier with the result".
NATALIE DALE | FOUNDER & CEO, BLADE ACTIVE
"By far, dealing with Colette Werden and her team has been the best experience I’ve had on this journey. 100% professionalism and 110% focus. They have captured the feel, identity and personality of my brand so powerfully. On the shoot day, I turned up to the set feeling quite insecure and fearful, but Colette and her team made it so fun and easy. They made me feel so comfortable and no challenge was a problem. The photography is amazing and the assets are extensive".
JACINTA MURRAY, LIFE-FORCE ENHANCER
"The quality of work Colette and her team produced for us is world class. They worked tirelessly until everything was perfected to their level of excellence. As photoshoot virgin’s we were way out of our comfort zones. Colette and her team made it a fun unique experience that we will always remember and appreciate. The results show us for who we are, our love of colour and unique style were enhanced and show cased”.
BELLE CHADWICK | DIRECTOR, CHADWICK DESIGNS
"Never have I been in a room with a team of people so openly invested in my success and story. Normally I am shy in front of a camera, but I felt amazing! The way Colette managed the whole process was flawless. Every detail was meticulously personalised and choreographed to link with my brand and brief. The images delivered could not have been more authentic to who I am and what I represent in my professional life. I was completely taken aback with what was delivered as for the first time I saw what she saw in me; a leader who is true to her self”.
PETA STEWART | PROPERTY CONVEYANCING MENTOR
“Wow, simply wow. Talk about rock star treatment. The entire team at my photography day had such amazing energy and true passion for the job. They all worked relentlessly until we got the perfect shot at every single scene. They were all clear on my brand image and worked tirelessly to ensure they captured it. Post shoot the photos are amazing, simply amazing".
