Q: What is personal brand photography?

A: Personal brand photography is the art of using high-quality images to tell your brand’s story. It elevates your visual branding by showing your authenticity and expertise, making your clients and audience feel more connected to your brand.

Q: How is a personal branding session different from a headshot session?

A: Unlike headshots, which focus on you from the waist up, personal branding sessions delve into your brand’s story, including lifestyle shots, action photos, and images with your products. It’s customised to reflect your business and the message you wish to convey. We will also shoot traditional headshots within your session.

Q: Who should consider a personal branding session?

A: Personal branding sessions are ideal for business owners, influencers, speakers, or anyone who is the face of their brand and wants to enhance their visual presence and connect more deeply with their audience.

Q: What can I expect from the brand consultation process?

A: Our brand consultation is designed to deeply understand your values, audience, and brand story. It’s an engaging and enjoyable experience that not only helps clarify your branding vision but also leaves you feeling empowered and clear about your brand’s direction. Through this consultation, we’ll collaboratively identify the key elements that make your brand unique, ensuring your personal branding session perfectly captures the essence of who you are and what you stand for.

Q: What if I only need a quick portrait or headshot session?

A: If you’re looking for a straightforward portrait or headshot without the extensive coverage of a personal branding session, we’ve got you covered. Simply mention your needs during our discovery call, and we can arrange a quick, professional session tailored to your requirements. This option is perfect for those in need of high-quality, professional images in a shorter timeframe.

Q: Can I bring friends or family to the photoshoot?

A: While we love focusing on you to ensure you get the most out of your session, we welcome the inclusion of friends or family.

Q: I dislike having my photo taken. Is this an issue?

A: Absolutely not! Many of our clients feel the same until they experience a photoshoot with us. We guide you through the entire process, ensuring you end up with photos you adore. Our goal is to make the experience enjoyable and stress-free for you.

Q: What if I’m not photogenic?

A. The concept of being ‘photogenic’ is a myth. Our expertise in angles, lighting, and poses ensures we capture you at your best. It’s our job to make you look good, not yours.

Q: I’m self-conscious about my appearance. Can you still work with me?

A. Yes, of course. We believe everyone deserves to look their best. Our talented makeup artists and hair stylists will collaborate with you to ensure you feel confident and stunning in your photos.

Q: Should I wait until I’ve lost weight?

A: There’s no need to wait. We’re skilled at posing and photographing all body types in the most flattering ways. We’re confident we can present you in a way that you’ll love.

Q: I had a photoshoot before and didn’t like the photos. Will this be different?

A: We understand past experiences might have been disappointing. We focus on posing and lighting techniques that flatter you, ensuring you receive beautiful photos you’re proud to use in your marketing and online presence..

Q: Will I still look like myself in the photos?

A: Absolutely. The photoshoot is all about you. We discuss your preferences for hair and makeup to ensure you feel comfortable. The level of editing is also up to you, from very natural to more polished.

Q: I’m unsure what to wear.

A: Don’t worry! Many clients bring a selection of outfits, and we assist in choosing the best options for the shoot. The diversity in clothing helps in creating a range of looks for you.

Networking Exhibition & Magazine

At the end of the year, we will organise a networking event at the studio where you can join us for a glass of bubbly, and one of your pictures will be selected for display. This event is a fantastic opportunity for networking, celebrating your milestones and accomplishments. Additionally, your photo will be featured in the next edition of Portrait Magazine showcasing everyone I worked with this year.

It doesn’t matter if you are confident or shy..”

“By far one of the best experiences you will ever book. Oliver is incredible and the images he takes are just amazing. It doesn’t matter if you are confident or shy in front of the camera, he creates images that will absolutely blow you away!”

I recently had a personal branding shoot for my new business with Oliver & his team. Before the shoot I was extremely nervous and felt robotic for my pictures but Oliver was welcoming and checked in with me multiple times which reassured me. His team were friendly and approachable and they took very good care of me, making me feel beautiful and ready.”

Georgina R.

“I had my shoot with Oliver earlier this week…I can’t recommend him and the team highly enough. It was such a relaxed environment, and he was able to capture some amazingly candid images on top of the images that I specifically requested. He delivered well over and above my high expectations – and also introduced me to the world’s best playlist!”

Thank you Oliver for making an uneasy process internally a very natural and enjoyable process which actually put a positive spin on my day! My photos for my branding are extremely professional and they look sharp and they pop which is exactly what I wanted and needed. I would recommend Oliver Doran Studios for your portrait needs, this man knows what hes doing. Thank you.
