Lifestyle Photography - Simon James

Lifestyle photography or branding photography is at its core about connecting you and showcasing you to your clients in an authentic and meaningful way.

To create this style of photography you must be in a safe supportive space and that’s the most important thing for me to create for you.

I do this by making sure that you don’t feel rushed or under pressure to perform on cue.
We have discussed what you want to get from your professional photography session, we have selected the location(s) and you have a range of your clothes the you feel comfy in to help to express who you are and to get your message across to your clients.

I ask all of my clients to think of 3 words that describe the feeling/message that you want to communicate to your clients.

Do you need the images to showcase your professionalism, knowledge & understanding.  Maybe you want to show empathy, understanding & care that you have for your clients.  Perhaps you want to show off your energy, kindness & sense of fun that your clients will have working with you.

I feel the most important thing that you can do while having your professional photos taken is to actually FEEL true and real emotions during the photoshoot. If you are looking at the camera and that’s all you are thinking “I’m getting my corporate photos taken and I must smile at the camera….” then the images will be OK “that will do” kinda thing.

BUT, if you are in a space that you can actually feel your empathy, understanding, pride, joy…. It will show in your eyes and elevate your images to the level that will truly connect you with your clients.

If you are looking for a photographer that will take the “awkwardness” out of having your photos taken and create a space where you can express who you are to create the very best images of you, then reach out today.

Let us create imagery you will fall in love with!

We get it.

For some of us, the camera is not a friend.

We cringe at the idea of a forced photo.

We hide in the corner when the photographer lurks.

Trust me, that is all about to change.

On these pages, you are going to learn all about the power of photography, and the way it can create genuine, human connection – even when you are not in the same room as the beholder.

You are going to take a glimpse into the soul of the people we have captured through our lenses over the last 30 years.

And you are going to meet me, Simon James, the man who helps make it happen.
