Brand Photography


Bring your business to life with Brand Photography.

A picture speaks more than a thousand words.

Brand photography is the art of creating beautiful, on-brand images that capture who you really are.

I know it can be daunting to stand up and represent your business, but when done with your needs in mind, brand photography sessions are empowering, personal – and most importantly FUN!

Brand Photography vs. Headshots

Which one is right for you?

What’s the difference?

Great question! You need to know which one is best for you – and it all comes down to why you need your images.

If you only need a new picture for your LinkedIn profile, then a headshot might be enough for you.

A headshot makes you look friendly and approachable – but it won’t tell the viewer more about you than that.

A classic headshot session is exactly what you would expect. You will take a couple of key images with a corporate feel – your head and shoulders against a plain backdrop.

Brand photography delivers so much more than ‘just’ a headshot.

For a bank of images that boost your online presence and capture the essence of your business – brand photography is your golden ticket.

You’ll walk away with images that reflect your brand, your personality, and what makes you and your business different.

Brand photography is all about connection! If you show your clients how you do what you do and reveal more about yourself, you start building a relationship the second they see your picture.

Your photos will speak for themselves and start attracting your ideal clients!

Do I need Brand Photography?

Are you a small business owner or solopreneur? Then yes – you need brand photography!

You know what makes you special and why you are the perfect choice for your clients. But they might not know.

Make the right first impression with high-quality images that capture your personality. Give your ideal client an exclusive peek into who you are and the passion you have for what you do, and you’ll have people queuing up to work with you!

I know that the idea of having a photoshoot – posing in front of the camera and putting yourself out there – can feel really scary, but believe me, it’s worth it!

Why be boring and bland when you could take your business to the next level with photos that help your brand shine?

Stock images and selfies will only take you so far. Brand photography instantly makes you look professional and credible, helping you stand out from your competition.

Imagine always having the perfect picture to go along with your latest social media post. A brand photo session equips you with a bank of gorgeous on-brand images to use across all of your marketing channels. You’ll instantly be more visible online – and save loads of time in the process!

Let’s take some gorgeous images that help your brand shine.

“But Iska, I’m not comfortable in front of the camera!”


I hear this from clients every day.

And can I tell you a secret? I’m not a big fan of getting my picture taken either!

But being camera-shy is my superpower. I understand how awkward being in front of the lens can feel! My biggest focus is making you feel relaxed before we even begin.

Every brand photography shoot starts with a strategy call. We’ll cover your wishes, hopes, and dreams for the pictures, and create a detailed game plan for your session. Preparation is key. By the end of this call, you will know exactly what to expect from your Personal Brand Photography Session. And you’ll be looking forward to it!

Having your photo taken doesn’t hurt, I promise!

Iska provided a professional bespoke service from start to finish. She captured our business’ core values, the personality of our trainers and dogs, our branding and the facilities perfectly. The visual impact of Iska’s photography has made a huge impact on both my website and social media. I would very much recommend her to anyone looking to create a professional and personal impression of their business.

I hired Iska to take photos at a live event I was running. The photos were phenomenal, they completely captured the essence of the event, and we’ve been able to use them repeatedly in marking material. I continue to bring Iska into projects I’m involved with and really appreciate her professional, gentle yet assertive approach to our working relationship. She has an incredible ability to find solutions to create the best results. From big public events to animals large and small and those tricky profile shots, Iska really makes you feel at ease.

Understanding your uniqueness is vital for every business or personal brand. As a writer, I find it easy to express it in words, but images are different. Therefore, finding the photographer, who really understands me, was essential. We all have our insecurities when it comes to being in front of the camera, things you’d like to hide, not to showcase. Working with Iska was easy. It put me at ease. I liked the feeling of being prepared. I liked how she is honest and encouraging at the same time. I’ve worked with her three times now, and we always have loads of fun. And it shows. I get a lot of compliments for my photos, and I proudly announce the person behind them.

Wow…what can I say. Iska is a true professional. She made me feel comfortable, at ease, and gave guidance as to how to stand, look, pose if you like! At no point did I feel rushed, and I enjoyed every moment. Would highly recommend. Thank you Iska ?

I recently had some brand photography done with Iska and I cannot recommend her enough. She completely put me at ease in front of the camera and made the whole experience fun. Iska took the time to get to know about myself and my business and as a result the photos completely reflect my message I want to send to potential clients.

Realising that I needed more headshots and images for my website and for marketing materials, it was a no-brainer to contact Iska again. The time frame was tight and Iska went out of her way to accommodate me. It was a chilly day in Tarland but unphased by this Iska managed to capture shots of me outdoors as well as setting up my healing room as a temporary studio!
The collaboration between myself, Iska and my graphics designer worked really well, and the results speak for themselves. Once again a really enjoyable experience with Iska.
