Rose Brookman is a spirits expert and judge, educating amateurs interested in both spirits and cocktails, and also works professionally within the hospitality sector in Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) Spirit Qualifications. She offers consultancy services and represents drinks brands, as well as working as a cocktail creation trainer. Her wealth of experience in the hospitality industry has given her knowledge and experience, but she felt it left her a bit lost on how to focus her personal brand from a professional point of view.
Rose wanted to have a series of photos to illustrate her bright and colourful personality to both her potential students and future employers, all set against the historical and bustling backgrounds of iconic South London. She also wanted the imagery created to show her two great loves, and the tools of her trade; cocktails and books!
“I was really pleased with the whole process from start to finish. I was a bit lost on how to proceed with trying to focus my brand, but Daisy immediately put me at ease from our first meeting, and gave me not just lots to think about, but a focus for myself and the shoot. She was so organised and communicative in the lead up to the shoot and on the day she made me feel comfortable - even in front of the random public! The photos are fantastic and it has given me loads of options to use on social media, and they really show who I am to potential clients in all parts of my industry.”
Bronwyn is a calligrapher who produces beautiful eco-friendly handmade calligraphy invitations, name cards, table plans, tags, gifts, prints, and cards. Bronwyn asked me to produce some personal branding photographs to introduce her as the artist behind her work.
She wanted imagery that reflected her love of nature and her approachable and down to earth personality. We carefully planned the styling so that the brand imagery was within her colour palette of white and turquoise with a light autumnal tone.
“Daisy was great at putting me at ease and was able to direct me without it feeling too forced. The images look so authentic and natural. I was blown away by the pictures, they make me look so polished and professional and have given me the confidence to show off the maker behind the product!”
Kaye is an amazing entrepreneur and creative running her own florist business. Kaye faced a number of challenges in her business when she came to Daisy; Kaye wanted to get her name out and improve her social media. She was feeling overwhelmed and lacking in confidence.
Kaye's shoot focused on her personal brand and creating strong visuals to enable her clients to get to know, like and trust her. This helps her to attract her ideal client. The brand shoot empowered Kaye to feel more confident in business and provided her with imagery to use in her digital and print marketing to showcase her services.
"Daisy knows her stuff and has a very positive attitude. I was extremely apprehensive about the planning..would I get it right? Daisy was at the end of the phone if I needed guidance..if she was unable to take the call she got back to me soon after. I was delighted with the photographs...the branding colours that pull all the photos together. Definitely felt looked after and reassured by Daisy. She was there to help me set up prior to the shoot. It was great to have a couple of "clients" helping me on the shoot..we had a laugh which helped me feel more relaxed and meant eyes weren't always on me 😆"
