PERSONAL BRAND AND COMMERCIAL PHOTOGRAPHY
FOR ENTREPRENEURS AND CREATIVES
Welcome! I’m Antonina, an award-winning photographer working all across London, Surrey and internationally. I create beautiful photographs for business leaders and brands that showcase their stories in an authentic way, all while helping build the all-important like and trust and convert followers into buyers.
With my background is marketing, my superpower is seeing all the different story threads that run through your business and your brand, and telling them through beautiful, engaging, meaningful photographs. I take pride in taking the time to get to know you and your brand, customising every session to fit your needs, and always going beyond the standard headshot.
CREATING MEANINGFUL & AUTHENTIC ON-BRAND IMAGES THAT CONVERT
“Marketing is no longer about the stuff that you make, but about the stories that you tell”
Spend your time growing your business, not photographing it
You’re an expert at what you do, and your time is valuable. Let me take care of your pictures so you can actually focus on growing your business.
Each personal branding photoshoot will give you at least three month’s worth of social media content – or more.
You no longer need to remember to take a photo, or scramble for content every day. And with a yearly subscription plan you will always have fresh images to share on your social media channels and your blog.
Take your brand to the next level
When you’re ready to level up in your business, professional personal branding photography can help you achieve that faster. When you reach a certain level, DIYing it with selfies and smartphone snaps is just not good enough anymore – and you know it.
In the crowded social media universe you only have a split second to stand out from the crowd, and great photography is the quickest way to stop the scroller in their tracks long enough for you to hook them with your message.
Didn’t you life just get a whole lot easier?!
SEE PHOTOSHOOT EXAMPLES
Personal branding photoshoot with a performance coach
Karen is an anxiety and performance coach working primarily with sports people as well as busy professionals. She needed a set of images to use on her new website as well as on social media and PR. Photographed on location at Fulwell Golf Club as well as Karen’s home in Hinchley Wood, the photographs show Karen in action, working a variety of clients, and showcase her friendly and approachable personality. This is just a small selection of some of my personal favourites from our time together.
Photoshoot for a photographer and educator
Dasha is a wedding photographer and educator who lives in the Irish countryside with her husband and two dogs.
For her personal branding photoshoot we wanted to highlight her relaxed rural lifestyle (and love for her canine babies!) and love for gardening, and move away from the more traditional “here’s me and my camera” photographs (although of course they also have their time and space!).
Personal branding photoshoots for an author and podcaster
Mandy is an executive life coach, speaker, author, podcaster, and all round awesome person. We work together at least once a year to update her growing library of personal branding images that she mainly uses on social media. Most of the photoshoots take place at her home in Wimbledon to create that unique look that is so authentically her.
With every photoshoot, we aim to capture images that showcase her colourful style and quirky personality, as well as images that show what she does every day – writing, podcasting, reading – and of course hanging out with her adorable toy poodle, Herbie.
“I want people to see my business in photographs that are like a living, breathing testimonial of what it might feel like to work with me – and Antonina gets that”
Dr Mandy Lehto
Forget boring stiff headshots. Your and your team’s portraits should be engaging and full of personality. During my personal branding sessions we talk and we laugh, ensuring every portrait is super relatable and full of life.
Custom On-Brand Stock
There is nothing worse than finding out your competitor is using the exact same stock image on their website or social media channels. Having regular personal branding sessions will help you build custom, on-brand stock image library, making it super easy to just slot images into your blog posts, share on Instagram, or send to journalists.
Behind the Scenes
Showcase the inner workings of your company, your creative process or even your daily life with a set of beautiful behind the scenes photographs. Whether you’re a furniture maker, a jeweller, a photographer, an artist, a life coach or a branding expert – there are always ways we can let you followers in on what you do without it feeling staged or artificial.
Lifestyle Product & Service Shots
Beautiful lifestyle images of people using your products or service will help your customers imagine what it would be like to work with you or to use your products and how much their lives would be improved when they do so!
“People don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it.”
