There are more small businesses than ever. Across the country more and more people are setting up their own business because it gives them more freedom and flexibility in their lives. Small businesses are the lifeblood of our country. They bring a personal touch that can’t be compared to the big corporate giants of the business world. I offer personal branding photography in Oxfordshire for all kinds of businesses that need images.
If you run a small business with an online presence your images are likely to be the very first impression that you make on your clients. The images that you choose to represent you should convey your message and your brand values instantly so that any potential client is in absolutely no doubt what you’re all about.
Your imagery should tell the story of you and your business. They should reflect your personal brand and communicate the who, why, and what of your business does without any hesitation. The images that you choose can help you attract exactly the right clients that you need in order to build your business. A great branding photo from a personal brand shoot can really help with the reputation of small business owners.
Before I became a photography writer, I worked in product photography. I have a unique insight into the world of e-commerce and product branding that most photographers simply don’t have. I’ve also run small craft businesses of my own, shooing all my own branding imagery and product photography. I know what it takes to get customers to want to purchase your product.
I’m uniquely positioned to offer bespoke photography options for creative makers and artists running small businesses. I can shoot your portrait, your workspace, your products, and any additional images that you need in order to create style guides and mood boards. Together these images can help you to attract your ideal clients.
Together we can tell the story of your business and help your products and brand to shine. Within moments of seeing your online store or website, your customers will know exactly what you’re about. Your brand values and products will both be immediately visible. The right branding images can really bring your brand to life.
I have a range of packages and pricing options which means that I can offer tailor-made packages that suit exactly what you need. All small creative businesses are different and so there’s no one set rate that I offer. From paying upfront for a whole day of shooting with all images included, to paying per shot that you use for your social media – we can work out something that suits you. Whatever the option you choose, you’ll get images prepared for your website and social media.
We’ll start with an initial consultation either by email or on Zoom, and we’ll work out exactly what you need during the photo shoot. Then we’ll collaborate on a Pinterest board so that you can show me what style of images that you like. Once we’ve got together and shot loads of great pictures I’ll make them available for you to download via an online gallery so that you can use the images wherever you need to. That could be your website, your Etsy store, or your social media!
I’m based in Banbury, Oxfordshire. If you are local to me, within fifty miles, I won’t charge you any travel expenses. I’ll come to your place of business (or your home if you work from there) and we’ll shoot. If you’re further away then I charge additional mileage on top at 45p per mile.
I quite happily travel to the Cotswolds and Oxford, and they are just the most beautiful places to shoot. In fact, the whole of Oxfordshire is wonderful! I love calling Oxfordshire my home. Being right at the top of North Oxfordshire means that I’m also close to Northamptonshire and Warwickshire, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’re from there either!
Just a quick note about locations – not everyone has a suitable office, studio, or business premises for photos and that’s ok. We can always look at other options including shooting out and about where you live or even renting a studio space that would be suitable for conveying your brand values. But then again, working at home is the norm now! Don’t be afraid to show your home off to your clients. We’re all doing it these days!
