Faversham Traders – back in business on 15 June 2020

As I write, we are still under partial lockdown in the UK as a result of COVID-19. As a photographer by trade, you can imagine that my business, along with so many others, has been severely impacted. Considering myself extremely lucky and managing to survive during these extremely challenging times, it has been frustrating not to be able to do the job I love so much.

But now that lockdown is being released in small steps, I was asked by Lotty of Lotty’s Flower in Faversham to head on down into the town centre and to capture a selection of images to illustrate and highlight the fact that businesses will be re-opening on 15 June, much to the delight of the town and its inhabitants. Shopping local will have so much more meaning now and, although online purchases have kept many of us going, being able to spend money in our local town will feel even better than it did before.

Kerry Hales … she’s the lady who gives you a “gentle” push in the right direction

I’ve known Kerry for a good few years now, have listened to her speak and attended a few of her coaching meetings. She’s someone who I see as strong, with a powerful will and determination to help her clients succeed. She loves meeting people face-to-face and, although she runs online courses and has a very active Facebook group, to meet her in person is the best way forward for many of her clients.

Her mantra is:

Kerry finds your inner wisdom & a love for who you are!”

So that kind of tells you how she works. On her site, it mentions Kerry’s firestarter spirit and infectious enthusiasm. And it’s true. She herself holds nothing back whilst encouraging you to look deeper into what is holding you back.

Kerry needed some up-to-date images for her website which has a fresh look, with a white background. White is one of the challenging backgrounds to use and the editing takes longer (but once I’m in the groove, it’s not so challenging) and so we set up a small studio in her home.

We had a mood board with images for inspiration and guidelines from Rebecca who is the brains behind Rebecca Martin who offers brand consultancy, strategy and content direction amongst other offerings. Kerry’s site has been created by Jonathan at fairlymarvellous.co.uk who I’ve worked for, and with, on a number of occasions in the past.

Kerry made her choice … and the one below was included. When she posted it on Facebook, it received a huge amount of comments … it certainly grabbed people’s attention.

And that’s what Kerry is about. She is a transformational life coach. I’ve seen her business grow and flourish over the years that I’ve known her and am certain that it will continue to do so.

Branding photography is about capturing the spirit of you. Your personality, your business, your passion.

If you need a refresh or, indeed, an entire set of images to document you and your brand, please do get in touch.

I have known Lucy for a good few years now and both being based in Faversham, and both owning dogs, means that we bump into each other quite frequently.

We arranged to meet up at the creek in Faversham which is steeped in history and has a great variety of backgrounds against which we could work.

I’m delighted to see that Lucy has used a great selection of the images that we made that day on her social media pages. It’s great to be visible, especially when you are working in a market where people need to see who you are and what you offer. You are the face of your business.

If you are looking to be more visible on social media, please do get in touch via the contact form on my site. Or, if you are feeling brave, pick up the phone (my number is on the site).

Thanks Lucy for choosing such a great location and I look forward to working with you again in the future.

Personal branding photography for Lisa Honiball of Honey Interior Designs

I have known Lisa for many years now, we met at a networking group and have kept in touch. You can see Lisa’s site here: www.honeyinteriordesign.co.uk. She has an amazing eye, especially with the use of colours, and it has been wonderful to work with her over the years. Slightly fearful of being behind the camera herself, I was delighted that she also asked me to do some headshots and “behind the scene” images for her at her studio in Hythe.

Personal branding photography is about telling the story behind the person. Their inspiration, their ethos, their skill, their creativity. I’m so pleased that Lisa’s website is full of amazing images that we created together. Lisa wrote out a plan, we worked to a schedule and produced some excellent, high quality images that really speak to her future clients.
