Branding with Maren

Branding with Maren

One minute. One topic.
In speaking and interacting with Maren at our midday session, we seemed to share very similar views on branding and just how positioning yourself within the businessplace is of utmost necessity if you are to execute a (hopefully) successful business and marketing plan.

“You need to position your brand and business as not just a great choice, but the ONLY choice to your target audience,” Maren said. This sort of ideology is what has led me down my road of positioning myself correctly for my target market locally. Needless to say, we hit it off from the start. Of course it helped that she had some ‘fab’ulous clothes from Mario’s that equaled that of a Mercedes C-Class in their cumulative cost!

All I knew was where to show up and what equipment to bring: Three lights, Grey seamless, two softboxes, barn doors and my personality..all up four stories and a long corridor! :OD

Little did I know I would be photographing most of their Vice Presidents from around the world and their CEO, CFO and the like! After setting up fairly quickly we were able to have a little fun with several ‘business’ poses and ‘interactive’ style looks for a variety of personalities in a professional settting…I really enjoyed myself on this shoot and the challenge to bring out the personalities of executives in less than 10-minutes each.

Fortunately, Anne and I were acquainted at a local networking event two days prior and discussed updating her headshot for a speaking opportunity at the Danskin’s Women’s Triathalon event in Seattle the upcoming weekend. Considering the type of event (running/fitness), we decided to photograph her in a pinstripe suit, and also a nice running jacket for a little variety.

Testimonial from Anne: “Thank you so much, I am very, very, very, very happy with my new headshots. I’m so glad we were able to connect yesterday, the images are a complete ‘180’ from my past headshots. Everyone around my office is just blown away by your work and I look forward to referring more business your way in the future to come.”

Main Street Bellevue, WA

Too much fun networking with a diverse variety of talented professionals, many of which are sources of inspiration for their clients and business practice. I had the opportunity to photography 25 business professionals in a relaxing ‘on-location’ style in less than 2 1/2 hrs…phew! Thankfully we had an overwhelming turnout, including two non-Bizniks and two Bizniks that simply showed up without an RSVP because they were so excited for this event!
Check out the collage and see who had fun at our event. Way to rock your sessions everyone!
