Promotional and Personal Brand Photography

First impressions matter in this digital age. The photos you use to project who you are and what you do have more impact than ever before. Not only that. The photos you use are speaking to your associates, contacts, prospects and customers 24/7. Even when you are not. Whether it is on social media, your website or in print, the same is true. For this reason, my professional portrait photography is truly an investment. Presenting you at your best. Helping you stand out from the rest. Making the right impression and developing those all important connections. Essential photography for musicians, bands, DJs, performers, entertainers, writers, artists, vloggers, bloggers, influencers, therapists, trainers, consultants, advisors...

Model Portfolio Photo Shoots

I understand how important your image is to your career. For this reason, my goal as a professional portfolio and promotional photographer is to work with you to create a series of eye-catching images. Photos that best capture you and get the attention you want. Boosting your profile and maximizing your reach as a result. Styles available include fashion, fitness, beauty, glamour and commercial model portfolio photo shoots.

Dancer & Actor Portfolio Photography

As a dancer or actor, it's crucially important to have a set of professional images that not only showcase your incredible talent but also present your character, personality and versatility. Why's that? Well, more often than not, a director, employer or faculty head will see your photos before they decide whether or not they want to see you. So whether you're applying for a vocational course or looking to make the most of every professional opportunity and build an amazing career you need your photos to make the right first impression. I will tailor your portfolio shoot around your needs. For example your shoot could include headshots, bodyshots, posed and movement shots or something a little different if you wish.

Personal Portfolio Photo Shoots

Lots of people create photo portfolios for the fun of it! Some want a set of beautiful photos as a private keepsake for themselves. While others want to share them with family and friends. Or create a sexy treat for their partner's eyes only. Whatever your reason I say go for it. And enjoy! Styles available include lifestyle, boudoir, glamour, fashion, fitness, beauty, cosplay (Kosupure).

Location promo & portfolio photo shoot

Location photo shoots can provide fabulous opportunities to create unique, eye catching images. Indoors or outdoors (or a bit of both).
An indoor shoot can be at your home, workplace or studio for instance. Need a particular look? You could rent a space to have your shoot. An Airbnb for example. Or choose an outdoor location. A town or cityscape, a park, garden or beach. Or make the most of the Scottish countryside. There are so many beautiful places to choose from. Whatever you fancy. Somewhere with free public access; or that you own; have rented; or arranged access with the owner.
Get in touch if you need help deciding. I can arrange your shoot somewhere extra special if you prefer. An extra charge will apply. Please get in touch for options and more details.

studio photo shoot options

If you prefer the studio look, with a plain background and studio lighting I can bring my pop-up studio to you. Of course, you will need to have a suitable indoor space available.  

Alternatively, I can arrange your shoot at a professional photo studio in Edinburgh, Glasgow or West Lothian. There is an extra charge for this. See ‘optional extras’ in the price info below.

Your own private online photo gallery

After your shoot I’ll process the photos and create your own private online gallery. Password and ssl secured of course. So you can conveniently view your photos and choose your favourites. No need to arrange a follow up viewing appointment. Unless you want one, of course.

My promo and portfolio photo shoot packages include some prints or printable digital image files. You can order more through your gallery, if you wish. There’s lots of other photo items you can order this way too. Options include photo portfolio books, wall art and promotional items.

Frequently Asked Questions

I do not usually charge extra for shoots within Central Scotland. If you are considering a shoot outside of the ‘central belt’ please get in touch for more info.

After your photo shoot I will edit the photos and create your very own password protected and ssl secure online photo gallery which you can access via my website. I will email a link and the password as soon as your gallery is online. So that way you will be able to view your photos whenever you wish. And you’re more than welcome to share the password with whoever you wish. 

The best bit is that there’s no need for a ‘viewing appointment’. Instead you can conveniently order beautiful prints, albums and contemporary wall art along with printable high resolution image files through your own private online gallery for direct delivery. That way you only pay for the items that you really want and there’s no sales pressure. You can also select the photos included with your photo shoot package in this way too.

My mini and standard promo and portfolio packages include standard editing – blemish removal and that sort of thing. The Premium package includes advanced image editing. That includes body sculpting, beauty retouching and background amendment as required. You can add Advanced image edits to the other packages as an optional extra.

No I don’t provide any props or costumes but you are more than welcome to bring your own.

Hmm yes, the braw Scottish weather? If your outdoor shoot cannot go ahead because of poor weather you will have the option to switch to an indoor location; or reschedule to another available day / time. When neither option is possible you will receive a refund of any deposit / shoot fee you have paid.
