Corporate Headshots with Matt

Matt’s Headshot Update Meet Matt I met Matt when he booked in for some corporate headshots. Working in sales, he wanted to update his LinkedIn headshot. He also wanted some high-quality images that he would be able to use across his work platforms. Being high up in his field, he wanted to make sure he looked professional, but also approachable and friendly. When I sent Matt my pre-shoot survey I quickly learnt that Matt is a fun, laid-back guy, who […]

Personal Branding Portraits with Prosper

I love Prosper’s story. We came across each other in a wonderful Facebook Business networking group, called Business Business Business. It’s a great supportive community that constantly inspires me. But Prosper’s story is a beautiful one and goes beyond me meeting him through a simple online networking group. Born in Zimbabwe, he came to Australia seven years ago in search of an Australian teacher who taught him as a child. Prosper wanted to start a new life for himself in […]

Melbourne Actor Headshots of Kaitlyn

Meet Kaitlyn – the NIDA graduate who is already kicking goals. I worked with Kaitlyn earlier in the year on some new actor headshots (also, how is it April??). She approached the whole shoot with such a positive attitude, completing my pre-shoot survey and really thinking about what she needed, and where she wanted to go in the industry. And then when we met, I found out that Kaitlyn had already been cast in The Australian Shakespeare Company production: Much […]

I am so thrilled to hear about this amazing move […]

Working with Tiina

I recently had Tiina come to the studio. Tiina is from Finland, but she has fallen in love with Australia while touring. It was about a 35-degree day when we met, but she mentioned how back home in Helsinki it was about -10 degrees! I couldn’t even imagine that kind of cold, and Tiina said that she loved the Australian summer. In the studio, we took a few headshots. She has beautiful blue eyes, so we picked out a top […]
