Who Shoots?

Hi! I'm Carla Thompson. I'll be working with you using more than 20 years of styling and visual marketing experience harnessed from being educated and working in Paris, New York, London and the Far East. My most recent visual marketing endeavour bagged my client San Pellegrino's Best Female Chef for 2016.

With my visual expertise we'll collaborate to optimise your confidence and sell authentically with on-brand executive headshots and lifestyle photographs for your website and marketing requirements.

 

What do I get?

  • a pre-shoot consultation
  • a strategy session to get clear on who your clients are, who you are, and what kind of brand statement you want to make
  • Shooting time and styling
  • Professionally retouched photographs delivered digitally

 

What do I do before the shoot?

We’ll start with a simple questionnaire and visual branding strategy session to get clear on who your clients are, who you are, and what kind of brand statement you want to make. I’ll bring my visual marketing expertise to the table, so we can talk about how we’ll use your photo shoot to capture your personal style and share your message.

Next, I’ll help you pull together the “look” you’re going for with custom brand styling—everything from wardrobe to location to props. You’ll also receive a photo shoot prep package that tells you everything you need to know before your shoot. And because I’m such a hands-on gal, I’ll review outfit choices with you (even if you want to text me photos from the dressing room) and be available for unlimited support by email right up to the day of your photo shoot!  

 

Where do we shoot?

London is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. We'll explore the city for its amazing backdrops like Notting Hill, Regents Park, Old Chelsea and Belgravia. The background helps your narrative, and in this great city, the options are endless. For an edgy urban feel, Shoreditch and Soho have tons of locations that offer compelling backdrops that make your portrait stand out.
