Don't like having your photo taken?

You are not alone... Most of my clients have told me this one way or another! And I can relate - I'm not a big fan of being in front of the camera either!


Let me reassure you, I promise, having your photo taken doesn't hurt! 

My photo sessions are designed to make you feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, resulting in images you will love and you will be proud to use in your marketing materials. 

This starts with our strategy call, during which we will chat about your ideas and wishes and come up with a game plan for your session. At the end of the strategy call, you will know exactly what to expect from your Personal Brand Photo Session.

Personal Brand Photography vs. Headshots - which one is right for you?


The answer to that question is fairly straightforward. Ask yourself for which purpose you require your images. Do you need new and fresh images for your website and social media content? Or are you looking for a new picture for your LinkedIn profile?

If it's a new profile picture you are after, then a headshot session might be enough for you.
A classic headshot is an image of you (normally head and shoulders) against a plain backdrop. A headshot should make you look friendly and approachable, but it won't tell the viewer much more beyond that.

What is Personal Brand Photography? It's quite literally what the name suggests. It's a photo session type focusing on creating
on-brand images that show your personality and introduce your business! Think of it as inviting your ideal customers and clients to take a look behind the scenes and showing them who you are, what you do and what makes your business different, in photographs that speak for themselves and allow your clients to connect with you before they even meet you.

The Personal Brand Experience


To me, you are not just another client! You and your business are unique and have a unique story to tell. I want to get to know you and your business and tell your story through images that will show your ideal clients and customers who you are and what you stand for.

Before you decide to book me, we will arrange a phone or video call to get to know each other more and make sure I am the right photographer for you. I want to hear all about you, your business and what's important to you. The consultation will also give you a chance to ask any questions. If you decide I am the right photographer for you (which I am sure you will), then we'll start the planning process and have some fun!

Once you've filled in my booking form and signed your contract, we'll arrange your strategy call, during which I will talk you through every step of the process and help you get ready for your session. We'll chat about locations, what to wear, whether you'd like to book a professional hair and makeup artist, how the session is going to work and much more.

The photoshoot itself is the fun part. We've already done all the hard work and have a game plan for our time together. I mostly photograph in natural light but will bring lighting equipment along, just in case. Don't worry about posing - I'm there to guide you through the whole session and give you directions. Together we will create images that you will love! 

After your session, I will upload your images to my computer and back them up! I'll then start the post-processing - which normally takes approx. 2 weeks. Once the photos are ready for you to view, you will receive an exciting email with a link to a private online gallery where you can view your photos and download your favourites. 

But that's not all! If you need help with how to show up on your social media accounts, I can help you with tips and ideas to be more consistent and purposeful. It really is easy now that you have a bank of gorgeous on-brand images to choose from.

I am based in Aberdeen, but I’m more than happy to travel anywhere. Please keep in mind that travel and accommodation fees may apply depending on the chosen location. 

My packages are created to suit you and your business and all include a range of portraits, lifestyle, product and behind the scenes photographs. Request my brochure to find out more - or even better book a date for your consultation, you know you want to!

Kind words from past clients

  • The Working Puppy Company

    Kirsten Rennie

    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.

  • Mindblox

    Tess Day

    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.

  • Assurance of Learning Ltd.

    David Christie

    We cannot fault the service we received from Iska. Throughout the journey, she was transparent and communicated well at every stage.


    She also liaised closely with our overseas web developers. Iska was most professional, demonstrating the highest level of care and attention to our needs. She exceeded our expectations in delivery.


    All in all a wonderful experience to undergo with outstanding results and coupled with a sense of humour, making the journey for Assurance of Learning Limited most enjoyable.
